"6:07am Sharp" for Orchestra

MusicScore

Thursday, May 10 of this year I woke up with a musical theme laying on my pillow, so to speak. Developed several variations of it while getting ready for the day, then finally had several hours on Saturday to work out a fully-scored composition. While it's not every day you hear 13 beats per measure, it's not particularly novel or substantial for the music composition scene. But it's certainly fun to listen to. My notation program (Sibelius 6) was playing some parts completely wrong, so I have not published a recording until now since I finally made time last night to produce an audio version of it, using Reaper 5 and Garritan Personal Orchestra 4. So here it is: "6:07am Sharp".
