Museday Tuesday Wrap-up

Surefooted (2:02 MP3)

Introducing Surefooted, a two-minute work based on a Museday Tuesday snippet originally written on November 6, 2007.

The piece is loosely written for banjo, celeste, piano, fiddle, harmonica, horns, and percussion (because this most closely resembles the collection of instruments you might find thrown in the Grand Canyon, or other places the buffalo may or may not have roamed. "Loosely written" is a euphemism for "whored out the sounds of the instruments without considering the ranges, technical aspects, or whether such a player would want to waste their time playing my music", just as "euphonium" is a euphemism for "almost a trombone". It was written over the course of eight days, and I generally worked on it for 10 to 20 minutes a day.

The original thirty-second idea can be heard here . Enjoy!
