All these years I thought, if music playing is like playing video games, then music composition is like making video games—if not orthogonal, not a ton of overlap.

But it’s been explained to me that, on the contrary, composition is another level of playing the game.

And in the metaphor, the video game makers are the piano makers.

🤯 thanks to everyone who patiently explained it till I got it. (I am astonishingly amusical.)
