Music Composers Unite!
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 compsed 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
Thanks for the opportunity to converse with and learn from you.
