Opus 2

A quick list of developments in my composing life:

  • I have started using reddit, and I am in love.
    It’s only been a day since I started using it, but I’m getting so much interaction. On Tuesday night, I posted a question on reddit. When I woke up the next morning, I saw that it had 55 comments (excluding the ones written by myself). I learnt so much from reading the replies. (If you’re curious, the question was about the necessity of conductors in modern orchestras.)
    I like the privacy and personalisation that WordPress.com offers, but this isn’t the best place to meet lots of musicians and composers. If you’re hungry for music-related conversations, head over to reddit. There’s a useful guide for musicians new to reddit which I discovered courtesy of Wil Forbis.
  • I’ve started using YouTube, too. Before, all I had was a channel, but now I’m actually taking the time to log in, watch videos, like videos, and leave comments. I even got a reply from the uploader of a video to a comment I left. Yay.
  • ‘Into Winter’ is finally coming together. I think the arrangement is about 80% done; all that’s left to do is tweaking. I can’t wait to listen to the finished track—it should be available before June.
  • I decided against making ‘Into Winter’ longer. I listened to it again and again, and somewhere along the way, my ears started believing that ‘Into Winter’ sounds fine the way it is length-wise. Perhaps I’ve just gotten used to its length. Or maybe I’m more of a conservative composer than I thought was.
  • I have a logo now, if anyone’s interested. I made it ages ago and finally got round to uploading it.
    I like the design, but I’m thinking of changing the colour. You can see it on the page titled ‘Profile’.

  1. Nice updates! Excited to hear your next piece when it’s finsihed. Yeah I love using reddit and youtube, those are both my go to’s as far as communities go – I’ve gotten loads of advice from reddit users, really amazing place 😀


    • I know! I can’t believe I just started using reddit. I should’ve been active on there ages ago.

      I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t been feeling very creative lately. I’m looking forward to hearing your next cover. I’m wondering which Final Fantasy battle theme it will be of—one of my favourites, I hope.
