Composers have always been faced with the issue of modernity. Finding a unique voice in the present without succumbing to the pressures of public expectations or nostalgic tendencies can be an uphill battle. I will focus this paper on my compositional decisions involving content and medium in response to modernity. I will discuss philosophies and perspectives of past composers and theorists while addressing pertinent discoveries found through my creation of "Dreaming in Detroit."
