Most of the writing I do here is in service of my mission to help people find more peace and joy in their work. If I do say so myself, I think I’ve written some valuable stuff over the two years this blog has been around, and I also get the sense that sometimes my relentless focus on my mission can make it hard for readers to get a clear sense of who I am.
With that in mind, and as a special one-time holiday event, I want to introduce you to part of me that hasn’t received much air time on this blog, which is my musical side. I wrote a few posts here and there about the music I like, but I haven’t shared my own compositions so far. That silence . . . is about to be broken. (Imagine that last line spoken in a movie preview narrator’s voice.)
Below are some links to music I wrote in Finale, which is a wonderful music notation program. Normally I wouldn’t think of sharing my music as vulnerable — I love to compose and perform – but I wrote this music in somewhat unusual circumstances. My friend and I recently decided to write some music in the dramatic, epic style of the adventure video games we liked to play as kids, and these short pieces are part of what the French would call that oeuvre. (That’s the vulnerable part.)
Without further ado, enjoy! I’ve really enjoyed talking with you all this year and I’m looking forward to another great one. I’ll be back with a more “mission-oriented” post within the next few days.
