Editing creates more and more sense out of a work or text. Everything in a piece is there for more than one reason; a chord might support the melody and develop a counter melody. An inner voice might give breathing room to the main tune but add a small, unexpected surprise to the texture.

I have just re-imagined a set of songs originally written over 20 years ago and observe that the harmonies were chosen often to clash with the vocal line. They were chords and clusters selected with joy, I was happy just to play them so long ago, but now I work to meld them into a cohesive shape.

Canada is a downright odd country. Yet, whether you're Canadian, or from elsewhere, "odd" isn't likely the first word that the springs to mind when tasked with describing it. However I'd argue that it's actually as apt as any.
