Composing Music: Full of Echoes Part 2

This is a portion of the music I made in 2012 for the Murphy Smith Dance Collective. It was my first attempt at using Garage Band to blend the sound of birds I recorded outside my window with some real percussion instruments and software instruments from the program. The work I did with this dance company started as an eight minute composition in three segments, which was used at a showcase for new choreographers. It led to my creating over an hours worth of music and sounds for an entire show staged in 2013 called “See What I Hear.”

Since that time, the demands of earning a living as a percussionist have kept me from composing; however, some comments from a dancer following I class I played for a few days ago gave me a little inspiration. He asked: “do you have a CD of your music?”

So I’m going through some old things and thinking of how I can put something together that would be useful for a dance teacher who doesn’t have the luxury of using an accompanist.

Wish me luck.

Cheers.
