Hey all,

Some of you heard my project¬†in the morning section. For those of you who have not heard it, here is a link¬†to the piece on Soundcloud. After¬†the morning section, I felt¬†inspired, so I made a couple of minor edits. The piece is intended to be a blend¬†of several different styles, including EDM, jazz, rock, and other genres that I don’t have training in, all through the lens of the Cold War. Please feel free to leave a comment below! I welcome all criticism.
