Cool stuff Edward.  I'm a bit of a fan of Scriabin fan as well, messed around trying to arrange some for guitar.

Your new composition "Chaos" is amazing. Thanks for being a great composer.

Very nice string writing for the "The Wormhole and the Space-Time Continuum".

The south polar region of Mars is covered every year by a layer of carbon dioxide ice. In a region called the "cryptic terrain," the ice is translucent and sunlight can penetrate through the ice to warm the surface below. The ice layer sublimates (evaporates) from the bottom. The dark fans of dust seen in this image come from the surface below the layer of ice, carried to the top by gas venting from below. The translucent ice is "visible" by virtue of the effect it has on the tone of the surface below, which would otherwise have the same color and reflectivity as the fans. Bright streaks in this image are fresh frost. 


This describes well some of the "colors" of Mr. Schaffer's new composition "Scenes from the History of Mars". Bravo!

Edward you have so much music I don't know where to begin. I randomly selected Before the Big Bang the was only God and found it quite moving. I'm curious how you tackle such a large subject. Do you choose your theme and work at somehow making it into a musical reality? Or do you, as I mostly do, find yourself being taken into new landscapes by your moods the music itself and when it's done discover what it all means?

Anyway just wanted to touch base with you and say I enjoyed Before... for both it's soothing and mystical qualities and will keep in touch.

Great to find you here Edward. I'm new to this place and really haven't done much exploring. But it's good to find a fellow composition contest member here.
I'm at work now but I'll be dropping in at times to see what you're up to.

Beautiful work.

Hi Edward. I did listen, just now. Very interesting piece. Sounds like it should be the slow movement of a larger work...? Love the Doxology quote! I know it better as "All people that on Earth do dwell"... but Doxology is neater.
