This is my submission for The Piano Cloud’s Haiku Challenge.
A haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. The haiku that inspired this track is:
A train goes by,
its smoke curling
around the new tree leaves
– Masaoka Shiki

This is my contribution for the second stage of the Piano Cloud‘s Wedding Challenge part 3 (Something Borrowed). This part of the challenge involved “borrowing” someone else’s piece of music (submitted during the previous stage) and doing our own interpretation of it.
The original piano music is by Brad Stark and is available here:
This piece was written for part 2 of The Piano Cloud’s Wedding Challenge: Something New.
The sheet music can be downloaded from here.
This piece was written as part of The Piano Cloud’s Twitter Challenge which was described as:
Simple challenge – compose a piece using no more than 140 notes…
No other rules… but your 140 notes must include any harmony notes, etc, and any sound effects, percussion or drum hits also each count as a note.
The sheet music can be downloaded from the documents section of this site.
My submission for stage one of The Piano Cloud’s ‘A Bouquet of Flowers’ challenge. The tune is based on the tradition of plucking the daisy’s petals whilst saying “(s)he loves me, (s)he loves me not”.
This track was made for the first of The Piano Cloud’s Wedding Challenges (Something Old) where artists were invited to submit a brand new version of a piece of music by a composer who is dead. I chose to do mine based on the children’s lullaby “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”.
I was not really sure where I was going for this track, but I felt that the final result had a sort of “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” feel to it (hence the title).
