New news: had my first composition lesson for the semester. This semester I'm having a future composition for harp recorded by Marshall McGuire which I should be able to post here once it's done! In the meantime I will also write a clarinet piece which I would like to also send off to Phil from Plexus and also our own GMG composer Dr. Henning, should they be interested in having a look at it.

I've been wondering when you might get back to that clarinet piece :)

Well, the opportunity finally came! And I feel it will certainly be a better piece than what I could have written a year ago. :)

It's called A Shaped Wildness

I've come up with a few fragments and ideas for A Shaped Wildness and I think I might call the harp piece  Time Arch.

UPDATE ON THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING

I now have a recording of Evolve from the world premiere performance.

I have 'finished' the first draft of the solo clarinet piece.

I have begun planning a piece for percussion ensemble.

I have begun working on a new piece for mezzo, piano and electronics, hopefully for a performance in May.

I am about to begin as a chorister in the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Chorus.

I'm impressed!  :o

Of course I already knew about Evolve (and will be hearing it briefly) but wow, congratulations man!'  ;D

Sounds like enough to keep you off the streets and out of trouble....

Truly, though, it is great that you are so engaged, and accepted into the choral ensemble.  Congratulations!


Best regards.

I'll get a recording of Evolve up here once I get the thumbs up from Stefan The Pianist et al.

Great!  As soon as I get home, I'll listen (the office network nanny blocks SoundCloud).  Highly pleased for you!

Currently having a bit of trouble with regards to the form of my piano voice electronics piece.....it seems to be sort of strophic? But it meanders around a bit without really going anywhere. I'll ask for some feedback in my lesson today.......
