What's more, we wish we’d made the entire series “Composed Of” from Nowness. Combining beautiful music with beautiful imagery to present a nuanced documentation of real people and their music. The subjects are represented as very gifted and very human, a dichotomy that is too often amplified by the notion of the - deified - celebrity. “Composed Of” offers a harmonious reunion of the genius and the human (though the modern works presented often stray far from any diatonic tonality).
