Camilo's Miscellaneous Works
The compositions below are not good enough to be an Instrumental Concoction, nor funny or unusual enough to be a Questionable Work, and are usually short composing exercises or music created for only one purpose. Only listen to these as a last resort.
This is a short fanfare I hurriedly composed the day before my father's 47th birthday. Its motive spells Edwin using music, with "E" and "D", being their respective note letters, "W" meaning a whole step, "I" meaning the first scale degree, and "N" for a Neapolitan chord. I have also buried a few melodies from the television shows/podcasts he enjoys.
This soundtrack was composed to be a part of a Film Production assignment at Esquimalt High School.
On Father's Day of 2021, I decided to write a last-moment fugue based on the theme music of Formula 1 composed by Brian Tyler, as my father and I enjoy watching the sport on TV together.
A tendency of mine is to leave a task incomplete until it is nearly too late, and this piece is no exception. My mother's birthday on January 17 came quickly, and two days prior I had nothing for her. I decided to hurriedly whip up a quick piano waltz in an hour, whose motif I am sure is derivative of countless romantic piano works.
A short fast-paced duet inspired by, as the title suggests, running for the bus.
Every so often, I find myself hitting metaphorical roadblocks while working on my serious compositions. In an attempt to refresh my mind and recharge my creative stamina, I decided to try absolutely letting go and “free writing” per se on a blank orchestral template, without concern about the complexity, originality, or quality in general.

After my school's (now former) band director (Jennifer Kelly) announced that she was going to leave my middle school (Rockheights Middle School), A student (Sydney Jackson) approached me and asked me to hastily compose in time for the year-end concert a choral piece in Mrs. Kelly's honour from the lyrics she had jotted down.
This is the first waltz that I have composed. I was assigned to hand-write a cello duet waltz in G Major during my cello lessons.
This is my first handwritten piece. I was assigned to write an 8 measure solo cello piece during my lessons.
