I’ve been sadly neglecting this site for the past few days, and unfortunately will continue to do so for another week or so.  Every minute of free time is being consumed in preparation for my upcoming exams, so until they are done I’m afraid updates will be sporadic at best.  To fill in the gaps, I’ll try to make some short posts featuring some of my own material, since they don’t take as long as a fully researched and formatted MSMOTD post.

This is a simple tune I wrote a while back for piano, cello and french horn (a lot of my music uses these instruments).  I’m still working on it, so your feedback may be instrumental in the future of this song!  A friend actually played the first 5 notes on a piano and then challenged me to write a song around them, with this as the result.

A random picture of a talented begger/busker in ShenZhen from journeys through China.  Unlike most street beggers in China, this guy deserved every yuan he got.

I’ve also included a bonus tune at the end, a bombastic clip featuring some ideas for a more movie-score oriented piece.  It’s just a musical sketch, like a note on a paper napkin, but I thought you guys might enjoy it.
