Masters Portfolio ... (drum roll please) ... FINISHED!!

Hey everyone. Well yesterday I sent off my master portfolio down to Wellington. All 56minutes and 147pages of music. The last week was a mad scramble, partly because I thought I had an extra month, but by the time I sent it off it looked really good. Had some FANTASTIC recordings on the CD and overall was really pleased. I'll get some of these recordings on to my audio player and MySpace soon. So what now?? Good question! Have got lots of jobs and things to be doing over the next two weeks such as making my new website, musicpreparationservices.com, and doing a report for Creative New Zealand for some funding I got a while ago. After that ... not sure. It's time to reevaluate things I think! Bye for now.

Masters deadline closing in ... and other bits!

Hey everyone, well if you've wondered where on earth I have got to over the last few weeks, I've entered turbo drive and have been working day and night on my Masters portfolio. I am SOO looking forward to getting it in. I'm just finishing off an orchestral piece "Ardor" and just have one other piece to finish. Still lots to do but everything seems to be on track. By the way I got two more recordings of my pieces lately, so I'll post them in the new player on the homepage and on MySpace. Haven't even had a chance to listen to them yet but will do soon.

What else have I been up to? Good question ... been working with my orchestra  - they are starting to sound really good, we have a two-day workshop in a few weeks which will be great. Am playing in an Oratorio (see the next post) and have been rehearsing with Auckland Symphony who are off to china in two weeks. Anyway must get back to work.
