Opus 1

Today is D-Day. I expect to upload an audio file of my first composition within 12 hours. All I have left to do is to fiddle with the volume controls in the mixer and click render.

The title of my piece is ‘Onwards’, if anyone’s interested. It’s orchestral music. It’s also intended to be epic music, and it’s just under 4 minutes long.

I’m definitely uploading to SoundCloud today, but YouTube might have to wait. I don’t know how to make videos—I’m not sure if I even have any video-editing software installed on my computer. Besides which, I don’t think I want to upload to YouTube just yet. I know that YouTube doesn’t allow users to replace a previous upload while keeping the views and comments. I might make a few more edits to ‘Onwards’ in the next few days, so I don’t want to upload prematurely.

In other news, I bought a ticket to Ludovico Einaudi’s concert which will be held next month in Seoul. It’s his first performance in Korea, so I’m thrilled to be going. The set list hasn’t been revealed yet, but I’m hoping it’ll include all of my favourite pieces.

Until tonight, then!

  1. Really excited to hear your first piece! If you have Windows movie maker, you can use that for some light video editing. That’s what I use for basic trimming and recording of video (if you what to go that route) but I also use it to just put a still photo on songs as well, so whenever you’re ready to post on YouTube you can just use windows movie maker to put a still photo on the video :)

    Congrats on finishing your first track! I know how exciting that can be haha.


    • Thank you, Crystal! After today, I’ll finally have a creation of my own under my belt. It’s been a very long journey—and I haven’t even been shooting for perfection!

      I use Windows, but I don’t have that program, for some reason. Maybe I just can’t find it. There’s probably plenty of free video-editing software out there, so I’ll just install one later. I’m only going to upload my music with images, so I don’t need anything fancy.

      Thank you again! I’m working like mad right now. My computer infuriates me; it’s so slow.
