if you don't remember me talking about it, i posted a long time ago on how i want to be a composer. film composer, specifically. i don't want to bore you with all the details, but i do want to tell you a little story, so bear with me.
in january, two months after finishing my first orchestral composition, i got an idea for my second composition. it wasn't much, really, just 16 bars of a melody that i couldn't seem to get out of my head. at the concert for my first piece, when the crew was clearing off the stage, i sat down at the [gorgeous] steinway piano and played the piece i had in my head. and the best part is? that's the piece i entered into this year's competition.
so after an all-nighter or two, or at least not getting to bed until after midnight, at 11am precisely, i sent in my second score to the 3rd annual texas young composer's competition. i'm really excited. i hugged my mother, which isn't something i wholeheartedly do very often.
so forget propriety and fancy photography, the above picture is what i looked like after i sent it in. because you know what? [and i'm breaking my own rule by doing this, but whatever] I HAVE COMPLETED MY SECOND ORCHESTRAL SCORE. and i'm actually kinda proud of myself.
and now, to write a string quartet for mendelssohn's "venetian boat song."
