Over on the Composer Forum during an argument about how to title a piece of music (form vs. programic) somebody came up with the title “The Lavender Glow of a Cherub’s Butt”. It was then decided for people to compose pieces to fit the title. Thus, my entry, all 69 measures –
This is straight out of Overture so there are a few rough spots (there is one part were the first trumpet is doing some triple-tonguing that sounds horrid), but I am please with the overall balance and sound I was able to get without spending hours manipulating the controller data.
I’m not 100% happy with this and will go back and fix a few places, but I need a short break from this.
If anyone is interested I’ll post a pdf of the score.

Reason: slight revision of mp3 - major changes coming...
All the material is intersting, and will be good for developement and refinement. I agree it's already sounding good sometime, even if you didn't add expressions yet.
The best is the fusion and the counterpoint (mainly fugato).
The weackness is IMHO the ecoing of solos short phrases, that sounds naked, uncovered, and too much "easy". If you plan to add counterpoint or accompainement it maybe work. If you don't plann to add instruments, I suggest to connect and overlap more the entries.
Thanks Fabio. I was actually just finished putting some background counterpoint when I read this. There isn't much over lap or counterpoint in the very begining, but in other places I've added some. There is still more work to do, but I think it is getting there...
