Composition

Nick Thabit - Jazz

Mostly improv on that page, except "Prayer for Iraq". I am a new composer. After one year of music school 20 years ago, I tried composing but couldn't. I thought about composing for 20 years, and listened intensely to concert music, particularly of the 20th century, and finally, when I found out about MuseScore, I tried it.  I found I could do something, more than I'd previously hoped.

 I have composed for jazz band (songs, light arrangement), and now for chamber group. 
I love the music of Bartok, Stravinsky, Ives, et al.  Also electronic musicians but that's another story (starts with Subotnick).

I'm moving slowly toward 12 tone (or beyond -microtones) from a place of tonal chromaticism. For me, in the end, it's all about feeling, and the listener had better feel
well fed.

Thanks for the opportunity to converse with and learn from you.

Thank you! But I can't use sound font...

My sounds of strings instruments are bad very much.
