Mlog 7 – River Tam Beats Up Everyone   Leave a comment

The title of this week’s little piece* is a reference to this classic xkcd (which itself references Joss Whedon’s Serenity and Firefly).

But basically it was an excuse to play with Stormdrum.

I kind of wish I would have recorded a video of myself writing this one, because a lot of it was just me pounding away on my MIDI keyboard like a child. It’s a good thing my roommate wasn’t home because it probably sounded like I was just throwing a tantrum or something. I hope this is how people do it in Hollywood.

Anyways, there’s really not much else to it. Subtle as a brick.

*sidenote: Before I entered the composition program at WWU, I wrote a few short pieces of music as a “portfolio.” I had no idea what I was doing, but one of them was a percussion quartet with this same title. It might still be on my computer somewhere, but honestly, it was pretty bad. But hey, it got me into the program, so whatever!
