Why Not Composition

Why Not Both?

Why Not Both?

The purpose of this album is to show the variety of my music and to serve as a fair sample, or reel of my style of composition.


Welcome to my music!

A Short Ride Through a Portal to a Haunted Landscape Full of Stars

I composed this little piece for my first semester of composition class. The title says it all. It incorporates ideas from most of the pieces we studied that year including "A Short Ride in a Fast Machine" by John Adams, "A Haunted Landscape" by George Crumb, and "Saturn" by Gustav Holst, as well as a song from the video game Portal 2 titled "Cara Mia", which we didn't study in class. It is orchestrated for a piano duet.
