A Chronology of Drafts/Table of Contents

The table on this page is both timeline and navigational tool.

Links in the first column, in green at the beginning of each year, will take you to an annual playlist of all compositions created or revised that year, with a commentary on what was going on that year.

The introduction of a new composition, in red in the second column (titles), will link to a post documenting the creation of that title.

The third column, for the draft number, has no links.

The final column contains brief notes on my life and studio acquisitions, many of which are linked to posts further elaborating the subject.
