Let's define what being a composer is

Curate and assemble Apple Loops.
Add vocoded lyrics. Autotune at 100% is also an option.
Make a YouTube video with a cool cap on naming yourself as producer (« composer » sounds like old fart).
Bonus : girls on the video.

Voilà :)

I just miss the cap and the girls. Any volunteer ?

PS: just kidding. I kinda appreciate the uplifting spirit of those (often very young) producers.

To commandeer, bastardise and sort of paraphrase a well-known composers' thought (can't remember who, but definitely English)

'Never be a composer unless the not doing of it becomes bothersome'.
this is true of all artists, it has to be unavoidable, as the social payoff is unlikely so if you do not feel all that compelled then, why bother?

Yep, many of the greats (and even lessers tbh), have stated they feel compelled, almost without choice, to create. It seems as though we (or some?) are hard wired for art (self expression) as much as anything else, given the right circumstances.

A composer? Today? Well, it's someone who writes music, is an IT tech, a mixing engineer, a salesman, a PR rep and a lawyer... ...and then (except for the lucky few), sleeps a couple of hours and goes to the day job.
