And that’s it. The last original piece of music has finally been uploaded to my website in all of its NotePerformer glory. Naturally, this is one where I can’t really tell a big whopping difference between the old Sibelius recording and the new NotePerformer recording.
Then there’s the fact this was composed way the hell back in 2014, and youch! I don’t want to think about that too hard. It’s downright depressing.
I was running into the edge of what I could accomplish with music. Work was so stressful and leaving me more exhausted than I ever wanted to admit, which was having an impressively negative impact on my ability to compose.
I mean, just listen to this turkey. It’s not great. There’s even that moment late in the piece where I can tell I’m getting really frustrated, and the piano just starts farting away in the bass, wham, wham, wham!
To compensate for the compositional frustration, I was feeling a very, very strong need to get some book writing done. The next thing I did was Tourist Hunter, which remains far and away my favorite written thing.
So I’ve no clue what will be posted here next.
There is one more old piece I could do, and I’ll probably wait a couple of weeks before posting it, the closing music to my old and stupidly experimental attempt at an audio book.
I love that piece.
