And I bet you thought that this blog was just going to start collecting tumbleweeds and cobwebs. Ha, I say. Ha! Let's just say that it's a bit challenging when one has an assortment of tasks to complete, coupled with chicken pox. June/July has been a bit of a wash, but I managed to get this one done before things flew off the rails for a bit.
(For those paying attention, you may be wondering about the whole "number 12" thing: first, I'm counting Lessons Learned as 23 in '13 #10, because I put about as much work into it. Second, I also wrote a pop song for a friend's birthday which I'm counting as #11. However, owing to the fact that the song has somewhat personal/puzzling lyrics, and was written and recorded in a crazy short time period - I think it was maybe four hours from idea to emailing it off to where it needed to go - I'm not going to post it here. Thus, #12!)
This piece was actually written for the same birthday, but it's a bit more general purpose. At least, as general purpose as orchestral birthday music can be. The track came about from thinking about words to describe said friend ("whimsical intensity" came to mind), as well as a previous Halloween costume of a garden gome. Thus, Gnomewalk was born. Like the song I'm not posting, this one was also written in a very short time period, about two hours. It's a good thing I got it done as quickly as I did...the next day I got that case of chicken pox.....
EDIT: I'm not positive my Flash player is working on any of my posts. No better reason to dump Flash and go with an HTML5 player, I guess. I'll take me a while to update all the older posts. Until then, the song title in each posts is a direct link to the MP3.
