Hey guys,
I'm currently writing a complete set of 24 preludes (one in every key), and I figured I'd post what I've completed so far. I'll update this post when I complete the rest.

Sheet music (slightly messy, and unfinished, sorry) can be found here: http://www.steven-obrien.net/Portfolio/Twenty%20Four...

Enjoy!
-Steve

Nice work! I listened to all of them.
How lond did that take you? What is your source of inspiration? Do you write for any particular purpose? Did you start writing all of them from the beginning or you came up with something that was put in the middle or in the end of the piece?

It takes me a few hours to write out an entire prelude. But after I write it out, I generally spend weeks obsessing over details, making sure nothing feels out of place, I'll probably revise the preludes I've already posted many times before I fully publish them.

A short fragment of a theme will pop into my head and I'll write that down, and once that's done, I'll generally just innately write down the notes that follow. There's no method, it just happens :P.

I enjoy it.

From beginning to end. I can't write any other way :P. I can't even plan out compositions, even if I start with a plan, I usually just drop it after 5 minutes of writing, and it all works itself out.
