What is one piece/song you’ve written that captures you as a whole?

Hey Christopher, love your song man. You have a great voice too!

You all know my most famous piece of music, but this one I think is probably my most emotional piece, and was kind of my way of dealing with all the sadness of the last year.

Stunning - very moving.

In mi case, I would choose my toy piano concerto. It shows my love for minimalism, latin rhytms, Satie, and having fun with music. Very nice question, I dont usually think much about my personality showing off un my music 😊
Very cool! Must've been an amazing experience to have your piece performed live!

Here's mine!

A piece I dedicated to my partner who 11 years ago came along and changed my life.

My plan is to continue working with this and turn it into a much larger project, each song representing a different time in our relationship!

Interesting topic, Chris!

I wrote Twilight Suite over 10 years ago as an assignment of the three-note theme of EIS. At that time, I used the old libraries that were never close to sound like I meant in the composition. As I revamp some old stuff with better production, I decided to touch again on Twilight Suite.
I always loved the somber and dark mafia feeling. Even though I am someone with a lot of humor, I tend to like and create more gloomy music when I am not writing for media.
This music is one of my most profound creations and puts me to think late at night seriously.

Sigh, I guess I will share. This song is based on William Blake’s poem “The Garden of Love” which talks about the oppression of the church on our desires. It’s simply a small chamber piece for women’s voices, piano, and cello that was featured on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.”
Thank you for sharing Rodney :) Lovely.

I could imagine hearing this on Broadway. Beautiful song Chris!

Hi friends,

This thought just came to mind. Throughout our lives as writers and creatives, we’re always trying to put together music that defines who we are, and are proud to share with the world.

However, it’s so easy to become overly critical of our own work and lose sight of the progress we’ve made, so we don’t always end up appreciating what we put out and look back on it fondly.

So I’d like to ask you, what is one work of yours that you think really captures your musical soul and style, and if someone asked to listen to something of yours, you’d point them to that proudly?

For me, it’s a recently published song that I spent some time with and truly put all I had into it. I’d love to hear yours!

Cheers,
Chris

I know I am known for more hybrid stuff. But the work I am most proud of and, I think, define my melodic/harmonic approach the most succinctly is my Honor Of Kings work.


Cool thread Chris, glad to see a fellow singer amongst the composers :)

Do you think this is the thing you are most proud of because it is different than what you are known for? If you were known for doing orchestral stuff - would the thing you are most proud of be a hybrid track?
