Ah, I had somehow guessed you were about 17. I guess it’s because your music is much more developed than anyone younger’s who I’ve yet heard, but lacking something that came from a professional. I’m 15, so I’ll be in the same “getting into college” boat pretty soon.
Haha, yeah, about Eragon: Terrible movie, and the music didn’t redeem it at all! It was like LOTR music minus a melody, a base line, and percussion. All high and airy sounding. Terrible.
As a fellow musician, I wish you much luck in your USC venture, and hope to see/hear more of your work. I’m sure that if you get into a good school, you’ll be successful. Hmm… we have similar taste about the oboes! Quite obvious I suppose, it just fits in some places.
While I like the sort of segmented feeling in remembrance, I sort of want to hear something more… contiguous? Agnus dei sort of felt the same way… But your other pieces are different, so I think you probably get the idea of what I’m saying.
