Well, I still have a couple of places that might be possibilities for summer music things, that are affordable. And I'll do what I can to make that happen, but hopefully just continue to grow in my musical growth more then anything.
I'd really like to get back into doing more compositions, and for different instrumentations.I haven't done enough composing lately. I sat down the other day and starting writing a four voice choral work, after being inspired by a 40 voice motet by Thomas Tallis. The work, Spem in alium, just blew me away! How can someone have so much genious to know how to write a 40 part work, and keep all the parts working together well. It really amazes me, how a composer from the 1500's can teach me so much, just by hearing one of his pieces.
I found a quote by Pierre Boulez describing his thoughts on music, and I thought it to be a really great quote:
"Music is...a labrynth with no beginning and no end, full of new paths to discover, where mystery remains eternal"
It's like the saying, the more you know, the more you realise you don't know.
I need to get back to doing something constructive here!
