Last semester I had the privilege to arrange a song for a new recording put out by Scott Aniol of Religious Affections Ministries. The CD is called “God Himself Is With Us“. It is a good recording of newly set hymns. The website for the CD is quite nice. The track that I had a part in is the song “Let Us Give The Lord Our Praise,” a new hymn written by Scott Aniol. Samples of each track can be heard at the site, as well as lyrics and hymn sheet music.
My friend ERP, over at pumpkinankles.edublogs.org (see blogroll to the right), recently posted a hilarious happening about game that a group of friends and I got together and played recently. The game is called story, where you write your fragments of a few sentences on several different pieces of paper with your friends (She explains it better and more entertainingly on her site, along with some of the best of the results). We played the game this past week and it was a blast. I look forward to many good times ahead with that inexpensive and mind challenging game. I also learned (and mastered) the art of making CC cookies exclusively out of eggs.
Lots of things have been happening lately, mainly being back home in WI and starting a new semester…wait, starting my last semester in grad school. Wow, that felt strange writing that.
One main thing of importance is that my recital has been transported from my mind onto paper. Yes, now I begin the long (but not too long) stage of editing and practicing the music for performance in March. I’ll be sending parts to my performers soon, of course, my music is almost guaranteed to change after the first couple rehearsals but that is a given.
Other things of interest are that I am composing music for a short film for a senior project. I am genuinely exited about this as I get to delve into my favorite type of music in the soundtrack genre: soft drama.
Also on the to do list is a cello choir arrangement that I am putting together for performance at BJ’s own Bible Conference. I am arranging the old hymn tune: EVENTIDE (Abide with me)
