It’s the first episode of The Compose Pile! This is sort of a rough experimental episode. Hope it’s somewhat interesting.

Loved it!

Well, at least you know you were “blathering.” BTW, I’ve never heard that word … I know, I’ve lived in a cave.

As a suggestion, you might want to outline your episode in advance. That way you can remember such words as “scale.” (And, maybe you won’t blather so much!)

I loved the description of harp playing alberti bass, following by downward arpeggios. Also, the doubling of woodwinds and strings. That was most helpful.

Yes, I would love a PDF of this piece.

I love this idea. I showed it to my mom (who’s musically challenged), and she said she understood it :-O !!!! Keep up the good work!
