I am Eric Whitacre, composer, conductor, 5th member of Depeche Mode (application pending). AMA!
Hey gang, taking a break from writing Deep Field, my new work for chorus, orchestra and electronics. Happy to have your company.
EDIT: OK gang, been going for three and a half hours. Going to take a break and go back to composing for a bit. I'll answer more questions tonight and tomorrow. Man I love Reddit. THANK YOU.
EDIT 2: All right, answered another 100 questions. I'll keep going tomorrow. I'm humbled by your questions, even the ones about my hair.
BTW, for those of you genuinely interested in how I style my hair, here's the secret.
