    Although, If it was mine, I'd add a little extra line between 30"-45" as it felt a little like groping around to me, a top line might give it more of a sense of purpose. I love the nicely controlled faster lines that follow.
    Great idea. I added something in the middle voicing, rather than top, since I didn't want to change the melody. No more movements for me. Just going to dick around from here out.

    I changed the rhythms and added more articulations to the middle part of #4, had to make some sort of progression I figured. Added a repeat and changed a few things to #5.

    Very interesting and even exciting piece to listen to.

    Here is a small ditty inspired by the discovery of the graves at the former residential schools. Musically, it's probably inspired by Ligeti and horror movies.

    Here is another new piece. I'm thinking it's one of the better ones (I should probably take out the Study No.s 5 and 6 from the roster).

    Massaged this sucker around for days. I think it's a lot stronger and clearer now.

    Clean it up further (actually I think I made a bigger mess the last time in some ways). At this point it's just a musical puzzle I'm working out.

    Here is a new piece. I basically transcribed some piece for strings I did before with a tone row, and changed the rhythms a bit, and did fixed some of the voicing and tempo. Easily my best new piece in a while I think.

    I made it more free atonal for some of the variations to make it more interesting.

    Trying to find a new direction in music. Lately been kind of spotty. I played around with some more conventional stuff with this new piece.

    I think it was definitely a mistake with the crescendo on such a small scale, which raises expectation to something more grandiose and virtuosic. Here I played with the dynamics to subdue the drama. Some stuff I still can't get right, but I think I'm not that interested in spending more time on it.

    Check out this new piece. I think this one's a keeper. Got the idea yesterday during work.

    Took my time to work out this one. I think it's my best piece in combining tonality with chromaticism.
