Sort of related to that, I took my violin to another friend's house last Wednesday to practice a couple movements of a violin duet I wrote for us to play together for Solo and Ensemble. This was more just fun, practicing a piece of music with another violinist. And I wrote the piece, so... That's cool, I guess!
The next few months are going to be incredibly busy, because of the auditions on the 30th of this month, Solo and Ensemble I believe is March 1st, and, of course, orchestra concerts and such. I found out that the Orchestra Pops concert this year is Classic Rock, which sounds like it'll be very interesting, and the International Orchestra Trip, which we go on every four years, is going to be at Italy! So cool! From Vivaldi, I've always associated Italy with the violin, so it'll be great fun if I'm able to go. We will leave in the
summer of 2015, so right after I graduate high school. So that's very exciting!
As for my compositions, I'm still slowly working on themes for 'The King of the Aliens', although now I'm starting to orchestrate some of them. So far, I've done two versions of Ebonique's Theme and I'm currently working on the Monhán Theme, in which when I record it, I'll be able to use my violin as a solo instrument in the score (Monhán is the town where the main characters live). I am also working on a video game on PowerPoint called "Superhero Party". It's a 4-player multiplayer game where you play a bunch of mini-games and compete for points using Superman, Batman, Iron Man, or Spiderman. The soundtrack is just going to be one section of music looped, and I have so far Williams' 1984 Olympic Theme and his Superman Theme. I might play some solo violin tracks over some of that though. :)
Okay, sorry for just an update post, but these are really kind of good for me and to be as fluid as possible for this blog, and for whenever I go back and re-read any of these entries, as I like to do every so often. See ya!
