Update on 2009 Project

After making the decision to retitle the 2009 project (Bats in the Belfry), I have decided to keep the title.  For those of you who haven’t followed my blog, “Bats in the Belfry” is a project consisting of miniatures.  Miniatures are basically short preludes ranging anywhere from 5 seconds to 3 minutes.  I think I’m being a bit liberal with 3 minutes; the miniature hardliner might limit the mini to 2 minutes.  I have set almost every work finished thus far to videos which are located at Amaranth Videos. This is what the album looks like thus far.

  1. Glad to hear the latest news regarding your recording project! I’m still at the schmoozing/ fund-raising part of my recording project … the music’s takin’ a back-seat for now. 🙂

    And everyone knows you can’t teach composition anyway – therefore, not much by way of learning goes on in a conservatory. So we’re all self-taught (the good ones at least) – the only difference being that you saved a hell lot of money by not squandering it on a B.Mus. 😀

    Merry Xmas James! And wishing you another brilliant year of musicking in 2009! 🙂


  2. I wonder if you’re going to include a lot of miniatures in order to release an album with a ‘regular length’ or if the album will be a miniature itself. Glad to see it’s coming out! 🙂

  3. Thanks guys.

    Marc, I agree with you on the schmoozing thing, its kind of an uncomfortable experience. Personally, I would take a clip of the New York Times article and perhaps Xiayin playing “Wounded Head.” Seems like a no-brainer to fund you for the next 30 years.

    Ren, definitely regular length. Once I get to 20 works, I will have an idea of exactly how many I need to finish up.


    PS: Merry Christmas. Still snowing like crazy in Seattle…..
