Hello everyone. This is something I did this afternoon.
I've been writing music for short films under incredibly tight deadlines, and will continue to do so for another week. This particular piece isn't for anything, but I felt like doing something quick and away from deadlines etc.
Let me know what you think. I feel sorry for the cello player in all of my pieces - all he/she (GPO :P) ever gets is semibreves to play. This is the first time I have written a solo for a cello! Hope it sounds somewhat nice.
Also here's a piece I wrote for a school workshop a year and a bit ago, it's called Journey and was my first piece for orchestra. It got recorded by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra as part of the workshop! It's such an amazing feeling when your music is played by an orchestra...no matter how many times you've heard it in MIDI, it still sounds new and exciting (when you're sitting in the chair in front of everyone)
