Completed Finale!/Looking ahead to summer

May 9, 2013 at 10:27 AM

I've calculated I've been writing the finale for my symphony in C# Minor for about ten hours since April 24, so it was really a short amount of time I wrote 7 minutes of music. I am going to put it on YouTube and will post a link here; however, I'm writing a condensed score that you can follow on-screen to go with first. I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. I use interesting chord progressions in a couple spots, and I use my knowledge of Music Theoy to help me figure out where to go and how to get back to where I was. (When you see the score at those spots, maybe it'll make sense.)

Which reminds me... I have my AP Music Theory test on Monday! I think I'll prep for it a lot this weekend - as I've been doing in class - and hopefully finish my research paper on Vivaldi for that project.

This summer, as well, I may still be able to do a movie, only it'd be really short and not take a lot of effort to put together (the music is another story). I have five hours of U.S. History, plus volunteering, practicing my instruments, composing, hanging with friends, and doing summer reading for English. It will be a busy summer, and fall will come around before we know it!

So one more time - I will post my symphony with a score you can follow sometime within two weeks. So you can have that to look forward to! :)
