Just finished my quarter of school and am kind of re-evaluating what I'm doing right now. I need to start thinking about my thesis (a composition), but really need to determine the language I'm going to use for this. The movement that I did for septet worked for me at the orchestration level, but I'm not convinced by the harmonic and rhythmic things that I attempted.
Also, I'm beginning to think about synthesis, in an attempt to create a self-contained music where I can control all sounds, elements, etc. I don't think this is from a desire to become a control freak, but out of practicality. Whatever the reasons, I've found it a challenge to put together projects the way I want, so I'm going to try the total DIY path. We'll see how this goes, and I'm hoping to post my experiments here for you all to hear. I'd love to get your feedback on this as it progresses.
