A bit meh to be honest... sounds just like an exercise for some subject you are doing in school, of no more interest than that...

Also, the name sounds a bit silly to me... what's with this cliché in electroacoustic music of using the word 'spaces' in the name of the pieces... we got it... sound explores spaces of different types... but it's an overused metaphor... the addition of "moments" makes it even more annoying... at least Ligeti's suggestion, to an still student  Michael Daugherty, of naming 'metallic spaces' is less irritable...

Edit: i would change it to 'moments of pause' or something... maybe too explicit, but still better than the damned word...

'Moments of pause' might be an idea, but then again it doesn't exactly point out that I was interested in learning about depth of field whilst mucking around on pro tools with this. I am extremely glad I did make this, however, because it gives me some kind of new framework of understanding sound in more of a 3D sense.

Working on a new piece for guitar duo called 'Mountains.' I'm aiming for a ten minute piece hopefully.....will see how that turns out.

Sure thing. Here is everything I have done on it today..........

One is a slow opening and another is a little melody I would like to use in the second movement (fast)

Do you know the Carl Ruggles work, Men and Mountains ?

Oneironautics I: Aware as of the 21st of June. Still quite a long way yet to go, but this is a start. And it feels like a nice chunk of music I think.

Spent many hours over just a few seconds of rather busy music, but here is Oneironatics I: Aware as of the very early hours of the 25th of June (in Australia). I am at a point where there are many possibilities I can think of for the next passage of music. I guess I just need to make a decision.....I will do that on Sunday night or Monday morning I think!

I haven't worked on 'Aware' for a little while, but I recently just completed my own version of the Amen fugue from Mozart's requiem for a bit of fun. Still working on everything else as well, just very sloooooowly......

I did have a performance of 'Please Do Not Feed The Fish' in Brisbane on the 2nd by my guitar friends who have just come back from Guitar Foundation of America ensemble competition  (they came third).

Often, that's the best way (in my experience)

Congrats yet again, it's a cool little concert piece  8)
Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives.

“Still working” and “just had a performance” is double-good news!  Carry on.

The guitar duo are commissioning a new work now that they have confirmed a performance of a programme of Australian music in the salon of the Melbourne Recital Centre in February next year. The artistic director of the MRC is actually going to be doing a little workshop at uni of solo harp pieces next month, including one I wrote called Butterfly Wing, so that is cool and good.

I have to say, having a deadline to complete a piece by is the most effective inspiration to compose! Things are getting speedier; I may very well have one of the three movements of this guitar duo extravaganza ready in only a few weeks.
