My Birthday Got Interrupted
Uploaded on Jun 5, 2018
You may not have seen https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-composers/discuss/5019180 , but I figured that thread was a good opportunity for me to whip up a rearrangement of "Happy Birthday" and see how quickly I could do it.
...Two evenings, including this one, ain't bad.
I don't quite like making arrangements on short notice, though, and I've ended up at work all day on my last few birthdays, so this turned out angry and in a rather modernist style.
Actually, you might have a tough time figuring out where the excerpts of "Happy Birthday" are in this piece, but if you look closely enough at the screen, they're certainly findable. Beware--I use the minor-key version of "Happy Birthday" in this rearrangement, and I've definitely mucked with the rhythm.
Last thing I heard, "Happy Birthday" is in the public domain...but eh, this sounds so different that I'm leaving the Attribution license on this.
So when's my birthday? ...Not this month.
