"Multiple personalities. As was not unheard of at the time, R. Schumann recognized and named different aspects of himself. He allowed these different aspects to compose (and signed the movements with their names). He wrote movements that served primarily to introduce these alternate personalities, and titled the movements with their names. He kept a journal in which the differing personalities made individual entries."

I am loving this idea. I can totally see how it would be liberating in allowing one person to really, really explore different styles of work without having them get in the way of each other.

I love it too.

I think what I don't like about it is that there is a difference between developing and enriching an alternate sense of oneself by choice and having a (unchosen) multiple nature. Apples and elephants! Thank you for commenting.
