Some Good News For Adam Cole Watchers

So many times I find things change right as you've given up.  You always have to hold on just one more day.

 

I had given up on being a real composer.  Not that I would have stopped composing, but the idea that I'd actually write anything of any consequence for anyone was just about faded from my mind.

 

Enter Access Contemporary Music, a group in Chicago with which I am affiliated.  Last week they commissioned me to create a score for a 7 minute silent movie.  I was one of a small number of composers chosen to take on this project.

 

And so I have officially received my first commission as a composer!  I have completed a preliminary score and have sent it into the filmmakers to get their feedback.  If all goes well, we can move forward to prepare for a live performance in Chicago in the Spring!

 

After over 20 years of looking for an opportunity, it is such a thrill to finally have one.  Any good news from you lately?

 

Love,


Adam

    So glad to know that all of those years spent listening to you play the same piece or arrangement over and over (and over and over) have finally paid off. ;-) But in all seriousness, I am so happy that they commissioned you. Great news, bro, and good work!
