Show Notes

“You could edit and vary and change things forever but there’s a point where you have to just stop and say: “OK, that’s got to be left as is now and put out there as it is.””

In September 2016, composer Peter McNamara caught up with Peggy Polias at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music for Making Conversation. Here’s our chat about creativity, themes in his music, parenting and household work/creative balance, the Sideband Collective, and more.
