Written in December, 2004, this particular piece is my first composition using the GPO. I purposefully forced myself to actually write down the music before sequencing it. After many, many songs that were sequenced off the top of my head, I decided to compose this piece the old-fashioned way: putting pencil to paper. It is a skill that I do not want to lose. (Composition as a whole is a skill that I do not want to lose.) Anyway, this is a compositional and orchestrational exercise for me. Many atrophied "composing muscles" were significally stretched during the writing of this piece. (Ouch!) Anyway, I hope you enjoy the listen. . . .
