Fanfare for Hades
These compositions are a representative sample of a series of short works I composed between June 20 and August 3, 2009. I embarked on a project where I forced myself to compose a new 30-second work every day for 30 days. In the end, it took me about 42 days to complete the 30 pieces, but the original intent of the project is still very much intact.
The output from the whole project - including downloadable scores - can be seen at the 30/30 Project Home.
