The "C List"
(The "See list")
The "Chronological List"
My own little compositional blog throughout my years of composition. Every project I have worked on has been given a number in this list (in chronological order) from my earliest compositions of 2010 to more recent works.
The list not only includes original music I wrote, but also transcriptions of other composer's work, educational tasks and unfinished works that were large enough to merit cataloguing.
Each work is accompanied by a short reminiscence - an informal narration that gives context and reflects on how and why I worked on it. Some transcriptions will have short analyses, as well as other useful insights you may find interesting.
The blog is largely discontinued, but will remain online in case anyone finds the analyses and transcriptions particularly useful!
