"Nate, Even though I made reference to historical time periods in my previous posts I don't endorse the concept of styles being dated. Much on the contrary I believe music - and art in general - can transcend time and can do so with huge power…"

Joseph Harry replied to Nate Fain's discussion Mazurka
"This makes me want to hear a reverse time lapse from Chopin to a baroque fugue. Though... the thought comes to mind that the baroque structure has more enthalpy and Chopin introduces entropy which sounds more natural than trying to progress from…"

Joseph Harry replied to Nate Fain's discussion Mazurka
"I think this piece represents a "time lapse" from music forms dominant in the early 18th to the early 19th centuries. A seamless 100-year evolution within a single piece of music from an elegant baroque beginning to a very Chopinesque…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I was about 13 years old when I discovered nothing was as interesting to me as identifying sequences of non-traditional chords that actually gripped me and created a unique feeling. After college I spent a bit more time building on my favorite hobby. Now I work on web applications and occasionally am able to apply my old "skills" which gives me a kick every time.
