Two weeks ago my life changed. I got a call and was offered a job to teach at Salisbury University, a course titled “Creativity and Acoustic/Electronic Music.” I started the next day and in my first class, talked about this song – “Hand Covers Bruise.”
Here, the thing I told myself I wanted to do and the thing I told myself would never be possible, it is real now. And that first day, to have a lecture on the soundtrack from The Social Network. And tonight, to see Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross holding the Academy Award for Best Original Score. And now, to know: I teach music.
