Days 25 & 26: Yah! Feel it!

another late post haha. I had this one done last night, just didn't have a chance to upload until now. it's kind of a cheesy techno song me and my brother Jacob used to jam out. i threw in some 80's video effects for good measure. i had some serious creative block for this post. i think the robot video was just a tough act to follow.

Days 23 & 24: I am the Robot

i know it's late, but the video was finished last night. i just ran out of time to upload it. i kind of put a lot of effort into this one.

Days 21 & 22: An Ending

decided to do a solo piano song cause i hadn't yet. this tune is actually about five years old but i never really made a recording of it i was happy with. i decided to do this one because people seem to like it and it's one of my easiest songs to play haha. dan

Days 19 & 20: Lost in a Sea

hi everyone! this might be a little reminiscent of the post for days 9 & 10 (Space Sonata Mvt. II). that's because i took some of the alternate ideas i had for that piece and reworked them for trumpet instead of cello. lets just say my trumpet playing chops are out of shape. dan

Days 17 & 18: To Arms! (featuring Kari Clifton!)

so i know the song is kind of rough... but let me explain the process that led up to it.

i had a cello quartet piece that i had been sort of composing since January but never quite finished. i had never tried to play the piece. i asked Kari if she would like to be featured in a recording. she wanted to. we decided to record today. i finished a rough draft of the sheet music today at 12:30. we met and played through the parts for the first time for a couple hours. i was a jerk and gave Kari the harder melody line to play. smiley face. i knew she could do a lot better with it than i could. sorry Kari! we took an ice cream break. we recorded the parts. we had fun. our playing was rough. i am ok with it.

thanks Kari for being a part of this and i have to say awesome job taking on the super-high melody line!

(perhaps sometime in the future we will rerecord this piece and do better with it.) dan
