love scales

3

I think about love on a scale from 1 to 10. Most of us find a 6 or 7, and that’s why we have divorce. It’s the truth. We settle for that 6 or 7. But I like to think Kevin is Chiron’s 10. He’s found that and he realizes that there’s no reason to settle for a 6 or a 7 because, “I know this person is my 10. Whether or not this person believes I’m his 10, I’m going to devote my life to this person entirely.” That’s why the line where he says, “You’re the only man that’s ever touched me,” for me, was the most amazing, most beautiful thing I’ve seen in cinema, period. Because that’s what we strive for as people, to find that one person because they’re there. If Kevin doesn’t feel that they should be together, Chiron is just going to die a miserable person because that’s his person and he won’t settle for anything else. But I like to think they’re together, walking in Central Park hand-in-hand when they’re 90 years old. - Trevante Rhodes

It’s criminal that there isn’t more fanart from this Snowbaz fic out there (and I am totally incapable of making some myself), so I commissioned this angry makeout scene from the amazing @sadfishkid for @deservingporcupine‘s birthday. 

Happy birthday, Sam! May it be filled with antagonistic wizard love 🎂🎂🎂

I’m finally finished with this piece! It took for goddamn ever but it was worth it. I started at the beginning of the school year but I set it aside, so recently I decided to revisit it. 

So this piece is a bit different than my normal compositions. I wrote this one for a larger orchestra (I usually only write solos, duets, or trios) which is my first time doing so. And this is also my first attempt at program-like music! The piece is made up of 7 (not including the prologue and epilogue) main themes that work together to tell a story. I really hope you guys like this one! And if you want, tell me what you interpret the story to be (I’d be interested to hear!).

The themes are:

Prologue (0:00)

The Unicorn (0:22)

The Huntsman (1:01)

The Woods (1:42)

The Tortoise and the Hare (2:09)

The Gunshot (2:36)

Dark Triumph (3:31)

Death of a Unicorn (4:11)

Epilogue (5:37)
