Nothing like a new website to make one excited about all the possibilities!
Thanks to the design genius of Jordan Williams and the photographic wizardry of Sarah Morlidge, I now have a kick-arse new website. To celebrate I posted a new piece which I wrote over the last few weeks, “Dark and Ancient.” Also, I recorded my favorite piece of music I have ever written, which is the song “These Times.” It came out of a hard time and always helps me feel better when I am down. Hopefully it will help you, too. Take a listen…….
Another exciting thing that has happened in the last 24 hours was “Music Meets Film” at the EMP. Organised by the Seattle Composers Alliance (of which I am a member), the event created a speed-dating environment where composers had five minute chats with film makers. I met about twelve I think, which was great. So exciting to hear what is happening in film today. I am thrilled to be a part of it. If any of those fantastic individuals are reading this: thank you for coming out today. It was awesome to meet with you. I learned so much!
What was also fantastic was just hanging with other composers and talking to them, having them hear my music. To know for certain that I am not in this alone and that there are folks out there doing what I am doing, but also willing to help, advise, listen…..it is wonderful.
I am so happy!
And exhausted. We accidentally went for an insanely long walk this afternoon.
