A composition for my Patreon patron, Margie Gilmore, intended to sound like a relaxing wake-up ringtone. I used the letters of the name of Margie and her husband, Mike, to create the melody. Special thanks to harpist Shana Norton for reviewing the score.
After getting a surprise pair of tickets to the Oregon Symphony yesterday, I was inspired to create a quick "thank you" composition. It's very rewarding when I can take a whole sentence and create a functional melody from it!
My in-progress narrated work for strings & fixed media (and maybe percussion?), "Amber the Spider" is shaping up nicely. Doing my best to create a timeless story that all ages can enjoy... and still having it be about a spider!
