Continuing the theme of borrowed material from my PhD, I'm currently embarking on a project to write a violin piece, possibly a sonata of sorts, using the Elgar violin sonata as a starting point. I've decided to document the planning, progress and composition as part of the blog. So far I've played through the Elgar and plan tomorrow to draw out fragments that whet my fancy. Also I've sketched some musical ciphers that I wish to include and have a feeling that morse code will feature somewhere, possibly the middle movement. My usual starting point with three movement pieces is the middle and working outwards but with this piece I should like to sketch out the whole first.
