The Scarpe in E Major

A few days ago, I finished recording a piece I composed called The Scarpe in E Major. It’s a meditation on a part of my Tormay Trilogy. Music is one of my biggest loves in my life and I rarely feel more in tune with existence than when I’m composing. Or perhaps I should use the word create instead. I’ll leave composing to Herr Bach and other worthies. If you have a moment, click here and give The Scarpe a listen.


I think I wrote this song in about five minutes. Yeah, that’s potentially a double-edged thing to admit, as some listeners might point out that the song certainly sounds like it was written in five minutes. My view on it is that sometimes creativity springs forth in immediacy and instantaneous completion. How is that possible?
