I decided a while back to publish the music I'm writing, if nothing else as a way of keeping myself honest. So, here's a little piece of fluff I wrote just to play with time signatures—alternating 5/8 and 6/8 has a nice drive to it.
But, I have a problem: I can't actually perform any of the pieces I write, so I'm somewhat at the mercy of the good will of others (notably my teacher) to record them for me. And Christmas is a busy season for my teacher, so I don't yet have a recording of this piece.
Because this piece is so simple, Sibelius' built-in playback sounds OK, so that's what I'm posting. But if anyone fancies recording this, or taking it and turning it into something cool (as Chris Morris did with my previous piece) please send me a link and I'll add it here.
In the meantime, here's
- the score,
- the Sibelius mp3, and
- a midi version (don't listen to this—it sounds horrible. It's just here for folks who want to import to a sequencer)
Update: here's my teacher's rendition—thanks, Mike!
