From the Introduction

"Regardless of your methods [of creating music] in the past, if you're looking at this book, you most likely have a notion that there could be more ways of making music remotely. . . . This book's purpose is not only to give you new ideas for making music while you are either waiting in the subway or on a break at work, but also to show you how to incorporate those mobile music sessions back into your home studio sessions. The compositions that I've prized the most in the past have been the ones that I began or was inspired to write in moments of excitement, adventure, and emotion. . . . The songs from outside the studio have something that can't be manufactured by machines or by instruments--they have a story."

--G. W. Childs IV
