Now What? Music

Last time I asked, “Now what?” on Twitter, someone said, “Dance!” Hmmm. What to write about now? I know: music. This evening I decided to sit down and play for a while on the piano as I was waiting for laundry to run. Haven’t done that for quite a long time. I’m fairly rusty, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be. Played through a few pieces that I used to know fairly well, and then sight-read a couple pieces in my newest Dennis Alexander book.

Last night a friend was talking about the tradition her family has of giving/receiving a Christmas CD at Thanksgiving. Her family likes Christmas music…and I mentioned that mine does too. I’m pretty sure that I have all/almost all of our CDs ripped to my computer. The playlist that contains them would allow me to play Christmas music for 1.8 days without repeating the same track twice!

About 10 years ago, (wow, was it that long ago?) I took a number of music theory and composition classes. Mostly because I want to see what happens when I attach an MP3, here’s an invention I composed in counterpoint class: Invention 1 I really enjoyed learning about how to write music, but it isn’t quite my forté. Maybe a hobby. That’s why I’m in web programming.

    That’s A LOT of Christmas Music! I think I have maybe 4 songs.

    Have you ever played around with Garage Band?

    I’ve tried Garage Band some, but tend to use more sophisticated apps like Finale, Audio Compositor, and Audacity.
