I found a loophole in the contest rules for the GPO composition contest. It says there is no minimum instrumentation required. I have a great idea for the winning piece.
Click here to listen to my latest GPO piece “The Apples of the Moon” . Not a note is out of place. I mean, if it can’t be improved upon it has to win, right?
Can you tell I used a convolution reverb with an impulse recorded on the moon? I think it adds a great atmosphere (or lack there of).
I released this today to commemorate the 35th aniversary of the first moon landing.
This piece was obviously inspired by Cage. Yes, I was watching a Nicholas Cage movie and wanted to portray in music what seemed to be happening behind those eyes in one particular scene.
Anyway…. Wait a second…. What? You say there is a lawyer at the door representing Nicholas Cage talking about slander? Ed Slander from up the street? Tell him he has the wrong address.
Where was I? Oh yes….. What now? A lawyer from the estate of John Cage, something about copyright infringement? Tell him I gave at the office. Silly kids.
OK……Now what? Some guy named Styxx saying he is the only one allowed to post weird, off the wall posts on the GPO forum? What’s he talking about, I’m totally serious here…. Hold on, I’ll be back.
