It's a win/win situation. If you want to be an ordinary composer, you
can. Whereas in case
seizures are triggered, you can decide to investigate some sort of new
musical potentiality in whatever
literally knocks you over and become a new kind of composer. As Heine
says, the secret of the artist's creativity
is the desire to heal oneself.
