Composer Quest Olympics: Closing Ceremony and Final Thoughts

 

Well, it appears I have hit the end of my week long “spamming” of Composer Quest Olympics Blog posts. Many thanks to anyone who read any of the posts and/or listened to my fellow Olympian’s pieces.

This was an extremely fun, enlightening, and welcome experience and I am grateful to Charlie McCarron of Composer Quest and Michael Maiorana for organizing this challenge, the American Composers Forum for hosting the ceremony for making it possible to meet some of my peers in person,Ryan Udairam and Tom Snively for collaborating with me to complete some challenges, Eric Ebeling for taking on the Sneezeburger,  and  I am humbled by the fact that some of my peers voted for my music in these events. Congratulations to all of you, as well as  the composers who participated!

The closing ceremony was held live, last Monday 11/21, at the American Composers Forum. You can view the Final results on Charlie’s website and view a comprehensive list of All of the submitted pieces by clicking this link.

 

My original intent was to partake in all of  the events as a challenge to myself in order to improve.  I ended up with a few new relationships in the composition world, a new drive to learn more about how to compose electronic music (so that I can perhaps do this myself one day and collaborate with even more people),  and even a few medals.

Also, I will forever cherish the memory of our small group, huddled like a cult, listening intently to tuba solos .:P
