My Composition Website - Release Day!
Updated: Aug 23, 2020
After two years of procrastinating, I am proud to officially release my brand-new composition website! As a way of introduction, here is some history of the background of the site.
I have tried to make a composition site for years now. In 2017, I released this version as a Google Site, but quickly forgot about it and never updated it. Finally, in 2018, I discovered Wix, and decided I'd try using it to create a more professional experience. I had a lot of fun choosing colors and designing the look of the site, at the time thinking of it like designing a graphical user interface (GUI) for a video game. I had it "finished" but didn't do anything with it. My list of compositions was literally just a list without any links as well. It wasn't until a couple weeks ago I decided to finally finish working on it. I added pages about my compositions, seeing as I had explanations on almost everything written in various documents on my computer/Google Drive. I decided to add a tab on my arrangements, since arranging and performing existing pieces has been a great source of enjoyment recently during the lockdown, as well as while I was in high school. I also sectioned off my original soundtracks, to try and market myself further into the video game arena.
This new version of the site has been a long time coming, but I'm very happy with how it has turned out! My domain name is set (joshuaiyer.com), and my pieces have links to my two YouTube channels on them to specific pieces. In the future, I hope to add PDF scores, but I need to spend a little more time getting those prepared before I can add them. Please feel free to drop me a line if you are interested in playing any of my stuff.
I hope to use this blog to share site updates, behind-the-scenes, and other information related to my compositions and arrangements. Please check the link to my violinist.com blog if you want to read information on my older pieces or read articles I have written that are more specifically related to the violin.
I'm very excited to have a centralized hub on the Web to share my musical life with you. I'd love to do a summer 2020 recap to tease several new pieces that I hope to add to the site soon. Have a wonderful rest of your day, and thanks for stopping by!
