For the May concert at King's Chapel, I want to write a new piece, as I've said.  I've nixed Swiss Skis as the title.
Although
i started work earlier, I've composed a new opening for the piece, so this is the first 30"

My first composition since the event:


Penny Candy combines a narrow simplicity of pitch material with a simple-but-unfettered rhythmic narrative, in the hope that the result is perhaps naive but engaging.

94 notes (I think)!  You brought it in under the limit!   $:)

Lydian mode!  8)

The hits just keep on comin' !  I indeed had an image of "yesterday's snow," when I heard bars 11-15!  8)

Excellent development of the opening statements!

In fact I've just laid in some more work;  the piece is not yet finished, but I have the finishing in my sights.

Very good to see that you seem to be getting stronger and more confident. Long may it continue!
