I thought it was time to try a different way of composing today using my keyboard, computer and midi sequencing software. I heard a rather dramatic and bristling Chopin piano piece this morning on the radio and was inspired to try and come up with an aggressive and energetic piece that I could record and post as the following sound file. Bear in mind that this is obviously my computer playing through an electronic keyboard, but try and image a pianist crunching through this with gritted teeth on a Steinway grand.
My wife Scarlet who is responsible for starting this 30 day creative project is also going well in spite of heavy demands on her time due to work. She's teaching herself how to draw horses and then experiments with the results in a photo editing program. Check out her efforts on her website.
