Updated.Okay, I "finished" this a month ago. It has some fugal textures, but is not a fugue. Happy you liked the most of the short passage I posted some months ago. This is what it became. Feel free…Continue

PER - Fugue no 5 in C major (Daniels fuga)

piece based on motifs reminiscent of Scandinavian folk music and is fugal in texture, with strettos and augmentation + exposition and free counterpoint. The difficulty here was keeping the feel of…Continue

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 was here a year or so back in time. I cancelled my account for personal reasons and now I'm back.

I live in the archipelago of Stockholm and have composed music since I was 12.
Right now - in my current developmental state- I'm into folkmusic (with influences from Chinese, Scandinavian and to a lesser extent Slavic traditional music).
I am also making pieces - semi-classical works of combined folk and baroque/classicist influences - prehaps suitable for film or television. Studying these historical tools in a low pace at the moment.
My goal is to develop my skills in composition over time - assemble tools from the theory of the baroque, renaissance and classical periods, to become a better composer.
I study the baroque period now, counterpoint, The "musical idiom" of Bach in particular, and to a lesser extent the fugue.

I don't play any instruments, only a little piano, but was a pretty average pianoplayer when I was 15. But composition for me is something else than being a musician. It is another level of abstraction than just finding a nice melody on a guitar or bagpipe, I write all my music down, and only play if I lack inspiration.
This gives me an entirely theoretical framework, that may or may not make it more easy to assemble the tools (e.g. counterpoint, or Shoenberg) from musical history, to further my development.
I will study classical/baroque composition (and exotic foreign types of forms, as well) until I have knowledge comparable to a classical music graduate. I'm aiming for 5-10 years.

Enough about me!
I'm happy to be back and will post a piece right away!

Hey!  Saw your comment on my page.  This is the guy in charge now:

As far as I remember, using VST Expression Maps had problems with auditioning in Cubase 5.1 I am not sure, but I spent several days trying to use them, until I found these bugs. I hope this was resolved in later versions. Of course, I use curves (modulation CC1 mainly), if you mean it.

I did not use expressions, because they are buggy in Cubase. I used 16 channels per track without key switches, because keyswitches take too much time to set up. You can see it my article here:

No differences on my profile page and my site.

Thank you very much for your comment, I think it will inspire me for further victories :)

Did you listen to Walker?
