Establishing Order

“Music creates order out of chaos: for rhythm imposes unanimity upon the divergent, melody imposes continuity upon the disjointed, and harmony imposes compatibility upon the incongruous” -Yehudi Menuhin

As I mentioned in my last wildly-popular blog entry, I was working on a piano trio that explored Chaos coming into Order. Well, now I have Chaos, I have Order, I have part of a transition, and as soon as I write the rest of the transition, it will be DONE. (I'm posting an MP3 of the current version on my Facebook page very shortly!)

Having this piece nearly finished means that I'll get to include it with my Doctoral Application Portfolio later this month. Which is both exciting and terrifying, as that process begins very soon (as in, Sunday).

Meanwhile, I have been talking with Jacob Robinson and Steven Eiler about the possibility of creating a commercially viable Composer/Songwriter/Band management system based on Blink (which currently powers kylevanderburg.net and noteforge.com). The new system will be named NoteForge Hammer, and we hope to begin alpha-testing in Spring 2011.
