Time sure does fly, doesn't it? Can you believe that five years ago, I uploaded my first video? I sure as hell can't.
I didn't know what to do for this momentous occasion but eventually, I decided to do something that I've wanted to do since last year, the opening song from Clannad After Story. Clannad is one of my all-time favorite anime series; it has an emotional story, great characters and After Story has probably the best opening song ever.
So here it is, my most ambitious (believe it or not!) video ever. This one took a ton of time to edit but hey, I got to mix my major and my hobby. How awesome is that?
Originally, I had planned to do this as an ATB sax trio, but that never worked out, seeing as how my alto and bari saxes are very sketchy when it comes to tuning. The second form of this song was a ABC clarinet trio, but then I remembered that my alto isn't all that great. Finally, I decided on this Bass Clarinet, Contra Alto Clarinet and Tenor Sax trio. I figured that since these are the instruments I use most in my videos I felt it would be appropriate.
Also, you'll see the Contrabass Clarinet off to the side. I was originally going to use that in place of the Contra Alto but I still don't have the lung capacity for it. Soon though...
So, thank you all for the 5 years of support and kind words about my playing! It means a lot to me, especially during those times when I questioned whether or not music was right for me.
It's been an awesome 5 years and here's to even more awesomeness in the future!
