Well well, with 13 minutes I didn't achieve my goal. This year contained other, much bigger milestones.
The Old Castle got performed a few times, aswell as the Ketchup song and the Supertramp medley. And the Slaaplied serves it's purpose pretty well, becoming a theme song for Fratz.
No goal for 2018 as I'm bound not to achieve much musically...
Slaaplied für Fratz und Schatz: 1,5 minutes
The ketchup song, arranged and translated for german Choir: 4 minutes
The old castle - Mussorgsky
arranged for cello quartet, 3,5 minutes
Supertramp medley, arranged for choir: 4 minutes
Jacob plays upper structure triads on a II - V progression. Notice the first 3 triads going up a half step each while the melody goes down. Doesn't 'harm' to play in all keys. Enjoy!
My goal for 2016 was:
60 minutes of music!
My goal is to compose/arrange and record 60 minutes of music in 2016.

Super music. The guy wrote 500+ works and until now I never heard of him... I'm sure there are loads more great compositions out there...
A bit off topic too, but hey, I play the viola :-)
