Andrew Keeling - In the Shadow - Glimpsing the Creative Unconscious - Volume 1 of The DGM Diaries (1999 - 2002) (book)

Initiated by Robert Fripp, Andrew Keeling's Diary was envisaged as being a record of a living composer: one who bridged the Classical, Rock and Folk idioms.

Alongside illuminating the minutiae of the creative process, the diaries also shed light on Keeling's involvement with Fripp's record label, Discipline Global Mobile, his Soundscapes orchestrations and the creation of the King Crimson Musical Guides.

"The diaries provide both macro and micro views of the composer's world. Alongside musings on John Cage's influence on contemporary culture, the merits of "popular" music, or reflections upon the contradictions of a post-modern world, we see how everyday life tugs and pulls upon the creative process.
