Kurt Rosenwinkel - Zhivago
I didn’t think I would be reading this message in an email from the Elder Conservatorium of Music this year. I am entering into a Bachelor of Music, specialising in Musicology for semester 2. However, Jazz Performance on guitar is where I want to be the most, so I will be reapplying for admission into that program for next year.
This is a small, albeit very important victory for Jacob, and a sure game-changer for my studies.

My friend just uploaded the first photo to facebook, and it must’ve been taken about 3 months ago, and it was one of those ‘holy shit I have changed’ moments. So here it is, a mandatory ‘before and after’ shot, between the start of April and last weekend.
Last night we were lucky enough to listen to and speak with John Safran at Adelaide Uni. He signed our copy of his new book - a good time had by all.
This photo (taken with friends afterward) I believe is the first non-selfie shot Emily and I have of ourselves. (makerstits)
Jeeze continuing good ideas is friggin hard, I sort of know what I want but achieving it with Sibelius’ shitty midi sounds is very hard.
Here’s a very, very early preview of a new piece I’ve just started working on. It’s right up the minimalist alley, taking a lot of inspiration from the likes of Nico Muhly. The effect I’m hoping for in the long run is a snowball of these little motor rhythms, which is sort of achieved here, but I really ought to draw it out more.
For now I guess we call it ‘New Composition Preview’ for string quartet & piano…?
