"Midwinter's Night" Recording Session

I can't believe a small piece I'd originally written just for fun turned into a ten-piece ensemble actually playing my work! This afternoon I had all my friends together and we recorded the piece. This was a requirement for the audition process, but that means I can share it with all of you! I wrote about this piece in past entries (September 2013), so check there for more information. It was truly a great experience, and this is the first time a composition was performed by a live orchestra (of sorts)! Hope you enjoy!

Midwinter's Night

I'm also basically, I think, done with my "King of the Aliens" Symphony! I will have a link to the piece sometime tomorrow, or Tuesday. It's due next Friday, so I have to get the score in a 'published' format to make it nice. But yeah! I'm really proud of both of these works, and now it's time to move on to other things. I have a template for a symphony with choir, but I think I'm going to work on refining basic things with piano solos or string trios, like counterpoint and things like that.
