The—ahem—remastered audio of the Sonatina in B-Flat Major has started going up on my website. This is the last of the sonatinas, and the longest of the bunch. I still felt like I didn’t know what I was doing, which is a really depressing thing to realize after having received a Master of Arts degree in music composition, but that just goes to show how crappy the university program turned out to be. A lot of this has to do with the fact that we were expected to compose Twentieth-century music, which was explained to us as all bleep-bleep and blurp-blurp, so you know, knock yourself out, do whatever, there are no rules. More accurately, the only rule was that we weren’t supposed to follow rules, and tonality was absolutely forbidden.

The Sonatina in C minor remains far and away my favorite out of the five piano sonatinas, and the third movement is definitely the highlight. I love it so much. It made me happy when I composed it, and the damn thing made me happy just listening to the electric performance today. The third movement has the freaking fuguette in it, which is something I had wanted to do since the beginning of the project.

And now we are two-thirds of the way through posting the—ahem—remastered Sonatina in C minor to my website. The combo file will stay live until next week when the third movement finally joins the individual exposure club. Ah, the unsung small joys of the plague years.

"The connection to Macbeth is not immediately evident, which is quite a good thing and though that play may have been the book's inspiration, Pyrrhic Kingdom stands entirely on its own as quite a fascinating example of expressionist, even avant garde fantasy/horror." –Judge, 22nd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards
