As in Cubism, where multiple perspectives are presented simultaneously, music presents itself similarly in the mind of a composer. We can hear multiple parts moving in multiple directions all at once, often to the complete exclusion of almost any other thoughts.
I was asked once by a friend why I rarely have music on in the background. I answered that I’d never noticed, because music is playing in my head almost all the time.
This is what my musical mind looks like inside.
