so my laptop died last week. all my music (composition), mp3’s, written documents are gone, gone, gone. couldn’t recover anything from the dead hard drive. i’m waiting for my laptop to come back with a new hard drive, but in the mean time, i have to rewrite most of my music. i was hoping to send out my portfolio sometime this week, hopefully, i still can.

last friday i had a master class with a guest composer, the night after my computer died. i installed Finale on a computer at circa and rewrote the pieces. today, i’m back at the same computer, looking for finish two more.
