June 12 - This is a hype post, please be excited

Updated: Jun 18

I haven't released any new music since late March; I've been quite busy. (It also doesn't help that I keep forgetting to post here; I have the attention span of a chipmunk.) To make it up to all of you, I have some good news. I can say with 100% certainty that 1. a new piece will be released this Thursday (June 15), 2. it's from Airborn, and 3. it's an action piece. This particular cue has been in the works for months, and I'm so glad to finally finish it. Plans are already in place for more Airborn cues, because I've had so much fun going back to those two themes I set up in the suite. Add the villain theme and a love theme I've been toying with, and that's four main motifs (not even including action riffs and sub-themes). And I have ideas for at least one more. Expect more from this musical universe soon :)

Until then, I've got a whopper of a listening recommendation for you. Attached is a link to Omar Thomas' wind band piece "Come Sunday," a tribute to the Hammond organ and its role in black music, specifically in the church/gospel setting. Performed live by the Baylor University band and conducted with gusto by J. Eric Wilson, the piece is so energetic that it got the 2020 Texas Music Educators' Association crowd cheering and clapping along. Prepare to have your mind blown.

That's all for now. Stay tuned for Thursday, and keep an eye out for the next blog post!
