String Quartet No. 1 - Yep. It's done now. The 365 Project has been arranged for string quartet, thus making it my String Quartet No. 1. This flew by so quickly - it practically arranged itself. I really like how it sounds, and am dying to get it performed. Any string quartets out there looking for new music?
Lilith - I've started work on the new opera. Lilith's introduction/arietta thing is done. I was wrestling with the baritone aria for a long time yesterday, and I thought about it all day today. I think I have something workable now, though I'm not completely sold on it yet. For one thing, it's very simple. It actually is in a completely different vein than Lilith's arietty immediately before it. I don't know how much of a problem that might be.
Website overhaul - I'm completely re-doing how you hear samples of my work. When I'm done, you'll be able to go to my Compositions page and click on any piece from there. This will bring you to a new page, where you can read lots of information on it, including program notes. There you'll also be able to hear a sample of, or in some cases all of, the piece. I'll even put downloadable pdfs of just about everything up there. All for YOU, my friends. All for you.
