How does chance impact your compositions, and your compositional decisions? Does it impact their form? Their harmony? Their themes and development? Or is every note in your compositions carefully thought out such that it is exactly as you intended it, and such that no other note might be substituted in its place to your satisfaction?
Please take the question in a broad sense. I am not just asking why you yourself compose. Try to be philosophical and consider for a moment what might the role and function of musical composition be for humanity, what its goal or purpose could be. Is it the same as the goal of all art or different from that of other arts? What exactly is happening in the creation of a piece of music? To make the question even broader, one might ask "what is the goal of music?"
