29th February 2016

So today is a very rare day. It only happens once every four years so it seems worthwhile to have a blogpost on. Can see whether it will show up with bugs in timehop to see whether they have prepared for leap years!!!

Think i’ll do this post like how it used to be on my blog for 365 days of the year. It’s Monday, I don’t have any lectures at uni today so I am at home working on some coursework and this bastard of an essay. I have been back at uni for nearly a month now. I would have gone back to the commute in january but i had no exams in January so i got an extra long winter break!!!! Not bad 😀 Although I enjoyed the rest and time to do what i want, i was looking forward to going back as it became thustrating towards the end of the month

At the start of the semester i also found out that i have passed all my modules from last semester with a good 2:1. This means that providing I pass all my modules this semester (language of music, music buisiness, world music and music performance) I am on course to passing my first year of uni with a good 2:1 :D. My overall marks for the modules really suprised me as although i knew that my lowest would be for langauge of music, my highest was for composing?????? I got 66% for composing and improvising, 65% for Music and technology (a wierd mark for my final composition) & 63% for language of music 1a. You can listen to what i’ve done below 🙂

It’s more related to the theory side with regards to the modules this semester. Although there is some creative stuff, it’s more essay work. I was only in 2 days last week as i had a hospital appointment about my calcium which went well. I also finally had the balls to perform in a performance workshop which could have gone better in all honesty :/. It’ll be a long time before i have the confidence to perform in it again i think :(. I’ve chosen my modules for year 2 which will be film music, music education and electroacoustic music. Should be fun!!!! 😀

The piece though for chorus is very strange though a jazz mass……at least the orchestera pieces are good though 😀

Now back to this beast of a buisiness report. 500 Words till i hit the word limit though oh yeah 😀 Oh and practicing the test piece for the area contest on the 19th….
