I've been tinkering with the fixed media for A Heart So White

Thanks!

Although mere minutes ago, I posted to the blog that I had not decided which piece to take back up, I just resumed work on A Heart So White.


Karl's on fire!  :)


Amen!   0:)  An excellent start!  I point especially to bars 14 and 16: note the F#-G figure used for "them" and how it is made eerily threatening by the not-so-distant echo in bar 16 for the ominous word "fire."

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a fine example of how a composer operates on your musical id!

What sort of method are you using to get the electronic sounds?

I've been wanting to get into analog synths, but it's really an endless rabbit hole where you'll end paying thousands...

Nice! So evocative!

Indeed! I was really drawn into its strange atmosphere.

Tonight was the Triad dress rehearsal. Of course, I am not sure yet in condition either to sing in, or to conduct the group, so I was there simply to enjoy listening. The Alleluia in A-flat, Op.33 is sounding exquisite, and It Might Happen Today came into delightfully sharp focus at last tonight. I am enormously pleased.
