Graeme Helliwell replied to Em Coston's discussion Ghosts in the Fan
"Funny what pulls you into a sound, isn't it? I was listening to Cantus Arcticus by Rautavaara this afternoon and found myself lost in the blend of music and recorded birdsong/sounds. If you have the connections, this could make a really…"

"(I know I'm responding to a two year old question, but as I've just joined the forum as a new user, I'm simply wandering around and getting to know you all) Sometimes a time signature simply stares you in the face and you find that a…"

"The imslp.org site is great for delving into scores and parts, although I'm desperately conscious of the copyright issues in various regions. Unfortunately if I'm just looking for a few bars of clarification, i.e. how a specific soundscape…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I have been performing for many years, on and off, in both classical/choral settings and the folk circuit.
In the last year, I realised it was the right tie to put some of my own ideas to paper/audio and began the unexpected journey that I'm now on.
Feeling no firm commitment to a style or format, ensemble or solo, my early works have embraced a range of musical snippets which have wetted my appetite for more.
I'm here, on this forum, to share, learn and enhance my own work, whilst offering ideas and encouragement to others.
