Here is another 30 minute composition. This is written in 5/8 time, so there is a constant “incomplete” feeling most of the time… but I kind of like that. As far as composing for 30 minutes, I made it to about bar 24. That is pretty much the exposition for a piece that ended up being in small ternary form. I was enjoying it so much though, that I just had to keep composing.
This is an important point to make. If you are in the zone, keep going. There is no need to limit yourself arbitrarily. But if you are not in the zone, you can stop only after your 30 minutes are up.
I am also trying a new format, youtube. Let me know how you guys like it.
