I wanted to learn more about orchestration, so I decided to copy the methods of one particular composer whom I like very much. Since my primary focus was on orchestration, the composition itself tends to be a bit schizophrenic--but then I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing if it leads to new ideas. I hope you enjoy this.
Bonus points to anybody who can identify the composer I copied! I'll give you a hint: This composer is from Japan, and this piece closely resembles one of the composer's existing pieces. (If you have heard the original piece in question, you will probably get it right away.)
