Just as an FYI — my sheet music store now includes photos of the music found inside each download. Hopefully, prospective purchasers will be able to get a better glimpse at the music ahead of time now, to help make their decisions. 🙂

I just received a fantastic email from PARMA Recordings earlier today.
My composition for violin trio, “Counterpoint Invariable” (one of the works featured on my new album from PARMA, Soul of the Machine— and one of my favorite works I’ve done, in fact) was officially submitted as a potential 2014 Grammy nominee! The submission is for “Best Small Ensemble Performance.”
The nominees will be announced December 5. Keep your fingers crossed for me! 🙂
Hooray! Got more done on “Of Roses and Lilies” today!!
I worked out the (typically complicated) chord structure/progressions and the finished piano part for the middle “bridge-like” section (that comes next after where the present demo recording ends)…. Thus, with the framework now finished, I can finish orchestrating that section next… Then that means, I’m at least 2/3rds of the way done with the piece!!!!
It’s taking on a BEAUTIFUL shape!! I can’t wait to share it when I’m done!!!!
Had a really productive evening; got the creative juices flowing again (now that we’re all finally settled into our new place and everything)!
I started organizing and solidifying my work toward finishing an old score of mine with lots of potential: “Of Roses and Lilies” … It’s been given a new breath of fresh air tonight, with a re-conceptualization of its forces: soprano solo, with SSA chorus, piano, string orchestra, english horn, and soprano recorder!!! It’ll be epic and sweet! Can’t wait to see it unfold at last! 🙂
Woohoo! We received $50 more, bringing our total to $565!!! Omg!! 😀 We might actually make it to $1000 before June 18!!! 3 DAYS LEFT!!!!
Woohoo!! $140 more received tonight, total between two new contributors!! You guys make me so proud and humbled…er, at the same time!! Hahaha!…. We passed the $500 mark!!!!
Guess what! At the internet-sensation, booming online company Automattic, a Happiness Engineer named Karim seems to be an incredibly awesome breakdancer. I recently caught wind of the fact that he regularly enjoys dancing to my original tune, “Dreamscape“!!!
That’s completely awesome! ^__^ …and I’m really really flattered! I hope I can get a video of him doing just that someday!
Check out “Dreamscape” for yourself!
Available on my album “A Personal Echo,” on iTunes and elsewhere!
