It has been a very long time... work and life have consumed me for the last few months, and I've only recently re-entered the glamorous world of music-'enthusiast' forums...
Hopefully, you've all been well...!!!
I just finished my first work for violin... actually a medley of two "jazz-rock fusion" songs. You'll hear immediately my love of Jean-Luc Ponty and Didier Lockwood... although whether the piece itself is worthy of mention in the same sentence as those two masters is another story altogether...
This was created in the wee hours, in half-hour spurts, in the waning hours of night between stopping-my-real-work and passing-out-from-exhaustion.
This was also the last piece for which I had to draw every single note and drum/cymbal hit in with a mouse... I finally gave in and bought an Alesis ControlPad. I've got to work out some latency issues with it before I can really use it but, once it's up and running, at entering least the drum parts should be a much more manageable (i.e., much less ridiculous) task.
I've got a few other new tunes that I'd like to share with you all and get your feedback on but, in the meantime, you can check out Pathogenesis/Path of Futile Resistance at:
Comments/critiques are welcome, and would in fact be greatly appreciated!!
