The 30 Days Project

The 30 Days Project was a challenge I gave myself one summer to write a short piece of music and post a recording of it every day for 30 days. The result was 50 minutes of music that attracted listeners from all over the world!

Listen to each piece by clicking ‘play’ on the audio widget, and click the titles to view the corresponding blog post, with back story, explanation and/or witty commentary.
