A newbee after all these years.

Just to introduce myself: I have been writing music since I was seven - drawing my own staff on paper to try to record my fiddling on the piano. My "audience" was impressed at how straight the lines were. [sigh]

I play the piano, but read music like a first-grader reads writing - so I have to memorize the song then bring it up to speed. Learned basic music theory on my dad's electronic organ (what with chords and the "pointer system") And I composed a number of pieces - including our…

SUNSET IN RIALTO

Just an old song of mine in a home recording from last summer. Me and a friend on guitars and him also singing it as my voice was quite out of order. Since it has Greekk lyrics I give a rough translation

VENEZIA…

New song, "Tidal Wave"

Hey everyone, I'm new to this site and its awesome to be a part of it. 

I'm a pretty novice composer, I have been a musician for the past 11 years but have more recently gotten better at digitally composing music with DAW software. I mess around with anything from movie soundtrack-esque tracks to some hip-hop style beats and even some upbeat electronic songs.

I'd love for anyone to check out the latest track I uploaded and give me some honest…

A little about the project:



After listening to scientists sounds recorded from different sources (space, planets, earth...), i decided to perform solo piano improvisations with some basic structures.

So, every track start from with an improvisation principle,…

"Raoul's Rescue Mission" for narrator and orchestra/piano

Hi! Recently I finished a composition which I worked on for more than a year. It's a musical story for narrator and orchestra. I also created a version for narrator and piano because I am a pianist and it's probably easier to get a piano version of the work performed.



The story is titled "Raoul's Rescue Mission" and is based on a children's book I wrote some 15 years ago. The piano version is probably the easiest performed by two persons (a pianist and a speaker),…

Did I really write all this crazy hard stuff?!

Today I finally got a chance to actually sit down at the piano (well, an electronic one, but still) and try to play my fugue in C# minor myself for the first time. And I was greatly dismayed to discover that I couldn't play it at all... What sounded relatively tame in midi turned out to be extremely difficult for me to play.  That's probably a sign of how lousy my non-existent piano skills are, or perhaps fugues are…

String Octet 2nd Movement Draft

The second movement of the String Octet.

It's perhaps a near miss, or a glancing collision, with minimalism.

Organ Fantasy VI : Pseudo Perpetuum Mobile

Recently, I revisited Tallis's Lament. I've been stuck on it for days, one of those strange funks where you've got something on a loop and can't seem to stop listening to it.

Anyway, although this music is in no way explicitly related to Tallis's work, outside of the fact that he's had a profound impact as a composer on my writing, somehow I suspect his lament has inspired or influenced the work presented here, in some nebulous way.

Speaking of matters…
