Aria for 2 cellos

In memory of my music teacher Kim Shutenko.

I see the piece performed by two cellos and danced by two contemporary ballet male dancers.

This is the only piece I have so far played by a real cellist. It was quite an expensive experience.    

Spooky mood

Trying to write something without a melody. Performed with Omnisphere.

String quartet

Written for a school/college ensemble. Performed with XSample.

1st movement was completed in 2013. 2nd and 3d ones were composed in 1974 when I was a student.

Videos with score are here: Variations  Andante  Finale

J. S. Bach Prelude in C

I wanted to arrange the famous piece with electronic instruments and without Gounod's melody.

Slava Fiks replied to Art Lowell's discussion About My Score
"My several cents, Art. The score needs 2 initial tempo (and metronome) marks placed above the highest Staff and Strings. Rehearsal marks would help a conductor. Is name Bass for Contrabass ?. Why would you use name Celli as a section and single…"

"Thank you for listening, gregorio X an Ingo Lee Good idea about brushes. It would fit the 2nd section. I just don't have good ones."

"Very enjoyable, Slava! just the right amount of kitsch.  A lot of fun.  I agree with Ingo about the brushes.  Thank you!"

"Beautiful sound and arrangement, very laid back and retro. The sax patch is great!  My only suggestion would be brushes on the drums.  Thanks for sharing!"

"Very cool! With your keyboard and arranging skills I think a toy piano would sound good though. Still it says a lot about the quality of Roland's products, and technology in general.  Except for the drums, a cardboard box would sound…"

Listening to your String Quartet Finale right now.  Very clear sound and a good composition!  I am enjoying it very much.

Continue learning Omnisphere and Stylus RMX.

Here is Once Upon a Dirigible

Thank you for finding time to listen ☺.

Winter vacation

I came to a conclusion that uploading music here doesn't make sense.

Even if somebody listened to the piece, I'd never know about it.

So, here is Winter vacation using Omnisphere 2 and Stylus RMX.

Thank you for finding time to listen ☺.
