The 30 Days Project

In August and September 2007, I did an online composition project where I wrote a short piece of music and posted recording of it on my blog every day for 30 days. The result was 50 minutes of music that blog readers from all over the world have listened to!

On this page, you can listen to all 30 pieces by clicking ‘play’ on the audio widget. The original blog posts for each piece, with back story, explanations and/or witty commentary, are linked below each widget. Note: the audio doesn’t seem to work in the Chrome browser, but should work in others!
