The first piece I composed was for my high school's strings orchestra back in November/December 2010, named Gates of Fire. We played it at the winter concert that year but it was totally out of key so I'll leave you with the playback. I didn't really have a plan when composing this song and I ended up repeating a lot of stuff which I think worked out pretty well.
About two years later, I composed another piece which was originally named Sacrifices and Summonings, but it was renamed to Summonings. The piece was also designed for my school's String Orchestra, which means it was way easier and shorter than it should have been, but it was never played due to a time crunch.
This recording uses MIDI instead of Sibelius sounds so it sounds a lot different than it should.
Last summer, I became interested in pieces with multiple movements (mostly inspired by this piece which we played in band, which is basically divided into two movements), as well as music that used unconventional time signatures so I attempted a 3 movement piece that used 5/4 time throughout. Since the piece became more chaotic and unfocused as it went on, I named it Entropy.
Around the same time, I started listening to band music by Robert W. Smith, mainly Into the Storm, and composed a somewhat unoriginal piece named Storm.
Over winter break, I composed a piece similar to Entropy, named Spectrum. While the three movements are totally independent and different from each other, I thought of them at the same time so they are as similar as possible. I conducted a woodwind quintet playing a slightly modified version of the first movement for my school's required final project.
Thanks if you listened. I'm not looking for feedback on these pieces specifically but I'm hoping to improve my composition skills and become a bit better known, so please let me know what I can improve in the future. I've never taken a composition class so I don't always know what I'm doing.
