Hmmm... it's burnt when I replied that I'm not able to turn up.
So, yeah, you don't get my complimentary ticket. But hey, it takes a long time to compose even a simple piece, OK? And it takes a lot of money to actually organise a performance. So, if you do want to support, then please do chip in some funds!
As far as I'm concerned, I don't get a penny from this concert. But I have the consolation of getting an audio and video recording of the performance.
If you wonder how long it took me to compose a seven-and-a-half minutes' worth of music, the answer is "three weeks". And that also not for a full orchestra, but just a chamber group which comprise of:
- Double bass
So, if I were to compose for a full orchestra, with the other instruments such as trumpets, trombones, clarinet, oboe, etc. etc. etc. it can take months!
