here.After two years of procrastinating, I am proud to officially release my brand-new composition website! I thought I'd discuss some of the backstory of the site here, but if you want to just take a look at it, please click
I have tried to make a composition site for years now. I believe in 2015 I was trying, but that site is no longer available. In 2017, I released this version as a Google Site, but quickly forgot about it and never updated it. Finally, in 2018, I discovered Wix, and decided I'd try using it to create a more professional experience. I had a lot of fun choosing colors and designing the look of the site, at the time thinking of it like designing a graphical user interface (GUI) for a video game. I had it "finished" but didn't do anything with it. My list of compositions was literally just a list without any links as well. It wasn't until a couple weeks ago I decided to finally finish working on it. I added pages about my compositions, seeing as I had explanations on almost everything written in various documents on my computer/Google Drive. I decided to add a tab on my arrangements, since arranging and performing existing pieces has been a great source of enjoyment recently during the lockdown, as well as while I was in high school. I also sectioned off my original soundtracks, to try and market myself further into the video game arena.
This new version of the site has been a long time coming, but I'm very happy with how it has turned out! My domain name is set (joshuaiyer.com), and my pieces have links to my two YouTube channels on them to specific pieces. In the future, I hope to add PDF scores, but I need to spend a little more time getting those prepared before I can add them. Please feel free to drop me a line if you are interested in playing any of my stuff.
So here's the plan from now on! I am going to split up my musical discussions between these two blogs. I'm hoping my personal composition blog on my website can be more personal, discussing new pieces I'm writing, and updated less frequently probably. My violinist.com blog I am hoping to start getting into topics much more specific with the violin, and maybe less "journal entry" that I've been doing recently.
Thank you for any support, and I'll see you next time somewhere on the World Wide Web! :)Tweet
