So here's the deal. I've decided/discovered that what I've said so far with A Guitar Quartet of Sorts is really all that I wanted to say with that ensemble for now. So, A Guitar Quartet of Sorts (No. 1) is officially completed. I really like where it starts, goes, and ends with the 3 movements, and when I inevitably write more music for that ensemble in the future (maybe still this year), I'm going to start fresh and call it A Guitar Quartet of Sorts No. 2. Sorry to anybody who was hoping to see/hear more of that right now, but I think it is the right decision for the art. Thank you for all your support getting me through that piece of music :)
On to this weeks thing! Week 28!!!
After last week's post, I got a great response from the artist/painter Alison Albrecht. She said that because of my A Thing a Week project she was also inspired to begin painting something every week as well. Her first painting is really amazing, so I decided to write some music in response to her post and inspired by her art. I decided to draw some literal inspiration from the splatter/stamp style artwork and do something similar with the music by improvising a few lines into the computer using MIDI, and then copying and pasting and transforming that material into a full piece of music. I call it "MIDI Splatter Stamp Improv!"
I really enjoyed making this, and I'd love to being collaborating with others as well. Please let me know if you'd like to make something together with me in the future. Let's make it happen :)
See ya next week!
