How to Write a 12-Tone Piece Using Eggs

One day, when I was cooking some eggs, I was feeling particularly creative...



Beautiful eggs! What else can I do for breakfast this morning? Cereal? Nah...

Well, I got through all of the steps–including step five–and the result was "Carton." This is the first movement from my piano work "The Egg Suite."


Check out the rest of the suite here. All movements are not yet posted, but they will be soon!
