composer WIN #14

I decided at the last minute to enter another comp comp where I crampose a piece of music in five hours based on an assigned instrumentation and a secret musical ingredient. It seems like fun, right? A fun challenge. A challenge where I wear robot boots and write something mega-cool and receive a mega-awesome performance and they basically just put me in space and let me fly around in cool poses.

Am I asking for a challenge?!1

I should ask myself why I keep entering these competitions, since it seems like I only produce my best work (or any work, for that matter) when I have a ridiculously short amount of time to complete a project. And then my insecure composer self wonders if I'd write better music if I actually took the time to think through my material.

Oh well. I've been selected as a finalist to participate in this year's Iron Composer contest to be held at Baldwin-Wallace College on September 6. The concert (which will be held that evening at 8 p.m. EST) will be broadcast locally on WCLV 104.9 FM.
