Some events coming up... [Jan. 27th, 2008|06:14 pm]
[Current Mood |busybusy]
[Current Music |Ligeti]

February 5th -

    A new piece of mine is being read by the amazing Fireworks ensemble. The reading is part of the composition curriculum here, and will take place at 2pm to 4pm in Lincoln Hall 75. They are also doing their rendition of the Rite of Spring beforehand at a public concert at noon, also in Lincoln Hall 75. Free too all, as always.

May 11th-

    This is the official date set for my junior composition recital. Four new (some yet to be written) works will be performed by myself and some other volunteering students. It will be from 4pm to 4:30pm. There may also be a second student sharing the bill with me, so you get twice the new music. This is probably the most important thing I'll be doing all year, so I really really hope you can make it.

The pieces that will be played are as follows...

Pastoral, for piano and tape.

Untitled Guitar/Clarinet Duet*

Three Movements for 12 strings

Untitled Solo Piano Piece

Yet to be written

Again, if there's any one thing I'd like you to attend of mine this year, it will be my recital. Hope you can make it.

I now have a new bachelor pad. It's about the size of a bathroom and has a pretty sweet view of the courtyard behind our building.

1802 SW 10th Ave, room 342, if you want to visit.

Hey all

On the 26th, the day after X-mas, I will be performing with a local cellist down-town at the Someday Lounge at around 10pm.

It's an original Guitar/Cello duet that I wrote specifically for this performance, and its FREE TO ALL.

Come on by a little early and you'll be treated to the sounds of Haydn and Shostakovich by other great musicians.

6 pieces to write in the next 3 weeks.

2 applied music classes to practice for.

2 ensembles to practice for.

A jury to prepare for.


20 hours a week at the job.

18 units total of classes.

But writing about it here won't do me any good.

What's the rest of the world doing? Is there anybody out there?
