My music page

I wrote my first song in High School. I was not, as some musicians are known to be, a natural. I wasn’t one of those kids that wrote their first sonata before they could say “daddy” or a symphony before entering grade three. For me, writing is a process. While it’s not necessarily an arduous task it certainly is something of an effort. That’s one of the reasons I don’t write many songs. The other reason is that I want to create something unique with each effort. No two songs I have penned sound alike. I try to avoid a set style for myself; instead I listen to the inner tunes that pop into my head from time to time and then work at them methodically until the can stand and sing on their own. Melodies almost always precede lyrics. Occasionally a line will come to me or I’ll hear something that makes me think, and I will work a tune around it. For the most part, however, I hear a brief tune, or an idea of a tune, and then try to put it down on paper or a midi track. Sometimes they’re just snippets, thoughts that sound like they want to be something more, so they are duly noted and allowed to stew in the back corners of my mind; at other times they come out fairly complete and get the “full treatment” immediately. The odd time I realize I’m just repeating something someone else has written and just credit it as one of those “great minds think alike” moments.

After hearing a few of my favourite Big Bands more meditative offerings, I thought I’d try writing my own piece. This is the result. An arrangement for brass quintet so far. Still some kinks to work out, but it’s getting there.
