Another re-upload from the archives:

This piece is an experimental work that is a serious work, yet, it is not meant to be taken too seriously. It has many fun surprises and a lot of cross-over feel to it. It's broken up into three movements, but it's all in one file.

Video game music was one of the bigger inspirations for this piece. The piece is meant to start off sounding of old-school synth elements, and a more 'weird' tone to it, but each movement moves more towards a huge, cheesy, dated-sounding, full-on trance/dance romp! This was the grand finale of my senior recital and boy, I had to really push my professor to let me include this on the program! LOL

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

There are many good things in this, 

but I personally think there is too many sudden changes within this piece.

I can´t accuse this piece of being too repetitious. Instead it seems to be the other way around.

But maybe that is part of the experimentation.

I'm glad you brought that up. There is actually a specific reason for that. My composition professor (who was originally quite hesitant to allow this on the program) encouraged me to make many cuts from the piece where there was some more repetition of themes and such. The issue was it ended up being too long that way and it tended to meander a bit, so it feels more concise now, and as of right now I find myself agreeing with my professor's suggestions. There have been some spots here and there where I have debated the possibility of extending them a bit, but I've also had people tell me that each transition feels like it's in just the right place, so, I might just leave it as it is. At least that's where I'm leaning at the moment. I would love to hear a rebuttal from you though. If you feel like I should extend some of the themes in certain areas, tell me why, and you may just persuade me. Because I have considered it before.

And thanks for the feedback! Always appreciated! :)

Hi

I like the way it is.... Something like an "electronic thapsody". The sounds you get are amazing.... I am used to write for piano or other  "acoustic" instruments. So, this stuff would be very difficult for me.

I also think that the changes keep my attention and it's not boring, at all.

It would be different if this music was intended to go with images, a film or whatever. In that case you should rewrite some parts to adjust them.
