002 Making My Own Music – Fountain

Making My Own Music

In this episode, I talk about my composition “Fountain” inspired by the fountain outside the old music building at Penn State.

The original Fountain melody was composed for a composition class. This piece was sequenced and recorded for an Electronic Music class the following year.

I talk about chord progressions, and I play this piece’s chord progression: Em, Cmaj7, Am7, Bm7, Am7, Gmaj7, D/F#, D. I talk about the 6 times through the chord progression and what the different parts play each time. I then play the Fountain piece.
