What happens when a composer has a deadline for writing a piece, but no inspiration for it? Does the pressure of time influence the speed and style of composing or the quality of the composition? Is the deadline a psychological impediment or a boost for creativity? Can the process of composition transcend time when done in a confined space? I am going to face all these questions during the two weeks that I have for writing an orchestral piece with live-electronics... but will I finish before the deadline?
