Opus 8

B.E.D.M.A.S Aria

Lyrics by Luke ForandDedicated to Luke Forand, my grade 8 homeroom teacher

After my grade 8 homeroom teacher (Luke Forand) showed the class a rap he made on B.E.D.M.A.S (British Columbian mathematical order of operations: brackets, exponents, division, multiplication, addition, subtraction) I asked him if I could put it to music in an orchestral aria.

On the last day of school, I presented this piece to the class and Mr. Forand, using Synthesizer V to generate the soloist's voice, and NotePerformer to generate the orchestra.
