song order as part of song development

What I have been doing over the past several months (almost a year at this point) has been to allow the ever evolving song order to help develop the tonal center and harmonic character of the vocals.  It seems that new tonal harmonic directions that develop within one song can bleed over into the next if you allow it to.  Understanding the synergistics of letting the quality and energy of the...
