For My Nerdy Friends

20120104-233556.jpg

I couldn’t resist… I just completed this colorful, basic analysis of my trio‘s first movement (because this will have great bearing on the two following movements — no, it wasn’t merely for my own curiosity or pride, haha!). I know several of you have been interested in hearing about the structured system I tinkered with and developed for this; so here it is! Isn’t it pretty? 😛

So, when this piece is uncovered one hundred years down the road, students of music analysis will already have a helping hand… Hahaha!

I’m thoroughly enjoying working out this new composition of mine! Can’t wait to play it in February!

  1. […] This December has been an wonderful, exciting time of celebration, visitations, and music. The result has been inspiration for new projects to jump start this year, 2012. Yesterday Sarah Wallin Huff and I visited Santa Monica to pick up our String Theory busking permits. On the dive down Sarah told me about an amazing new piece she wrote for our violin group the Rose Trio which we will be performing in February. The structure itself is amazing! It’s made of small pieces of material or phrases that Sarah takes and layers, flips, augments, etc. and crafts into a complex four-dimensional structure like some sort sici-fi puzzle. Talk about parallel universes!  It’s awesome! Here’s the link to Sarah’s blog where you can see a colored analysis of the piece: http://www.sarahwallinhuff.com/2012/01/for-my-nerdy-friends/. […]
