This month has been incredible! Had a great experience with the Screen Composers Guild of Canada’s ‘Orchestral Reading Sessions’ where my score was recorded by an orchestra and had its premier in a masterclass. The Screen Composers Guild has been an invaluable resource for me starting out in this field, and I have met so many fellow creative minds through their events and connectivity! http://www.screencomposers.ca/spotting-notes-fall-2013/ Check out the SCGC’s latest newletter for more on the ORS and upcoming events. So looking forward to being in TO for the ‘Hollywood Orchestration and Composition Masterclass’ with Norman Ludwin in April too!
Back in my studio after a nice break with my family and kids! Great to be back in the studio teaching and producing music. I feel so lucky to be creating and sharing a part of me, through my teaching and my music.
This track took 2 days to write and produce and I love it. Actually, I fall in love with every track that I write! My fingers were a bit rusty from not touching my cello for 3 weeks!!! But hey, nothing gets you in shape better than having to play clean and focusing intensely on the task! Had sketched a few notes that would go well with an opening sequence for ‘Lizzie’, with building intensity and driving suspense. My mind is channeling Phillip Glass, and all things magically rhythmic! Hope you enjoy this piece of music as much as I enjoyed creating it.
