My semester is drawing to a close, which means that the wonder that is the summer and my thesis is about to begin. It’s a little daunting, but pretty awesome overall. I had a book art gallery reception on Tuesday, which was a lot of fun, and one of my books is in the display over on 51 Brattle St. until June 3.
My other coursework has been music theory and composition, which has been absolutely awesome and eye opening. I love the class, the prof and TA are excellent, and it’s just a ton of fun. Some of the composition assignments were a little daunting, but we got so much encouragement that it was hard to feel like anything was “wrong” in class. It’s also the most grade-absent class I’ve had here thus far (and these two are my 12th and 13th classes thus far).
Anyhow, last night was spent finishing up my final composition to hand in this evening. It was a bit intimidating, and I know there are a few notation errors in the sheet music which I will try to fix before class this evening (always show beats 1 and 3 in 4/4 music is the chief one that i violate on the first line). Really, check out the sheet music (i already did the edits, so let me know if you see any terrible errors). I will likely try to expand on this piece in the future, but for the time being I have precisely one minute and forty one seconds of creativity.
