Unscramble the Blue Letters

Anyway, but I guess my pniot is that all of these enterprises are engaging to me in their multiplicity, but as I've presented them to you today, they're actually salitory enterprises, and so pretty soon I want to commune with other people, and so I'm delighted that in fact I get to compose wokrs for them. I get to witre, sometimes for soloists and I get to work with one person, sometimes full orchestras, and I work with a lot of people, and this is probably the capacity, the role creatively for which I'm probably best known panilrlossfoey. Now, some of my scores as a composer look like this, and others look like this, and some look like this, and I make all of these by hand, and it's really tedious. It takes a long, long time to make these scores, and right now I'm working on a piece that's 180 pegas in length, and it's just a big chunk of my life, and I'm just pnlliug out hair. I have a lot of it, and that's a good thing I suppose. (lhgauetr)

Original Text

Anyway, but I guess my point is that all of these enterprises are engaging to me in their multiplicity, but as I've presented them to you today, they're actually solitary enterprises, and so pretty soon I want to commune with other people, and so I'm delighted that in fact I get to compose works for them. I get to write, sometimes for soloists and I get to work with one person, sometimes full orchestras, and I work with a lot of people, and this is probably the capacity, the role creatively for which I'm probably best known professionally. Now, some of my scores as a composer look like this, and others look like this, and some look like this, and I make all of these by hand, and it's really tedious. It takes a long, long time to make these scores, and right now I'm working on a piece that's 180 pages in length, and it's just a big chunk of my life, and I'm just pulling out hair. I have a lot of it, and that's a good thing I suppose. (Laughter)
