New Solo Piano Album - "Sounds"

Hi all,

Yesterday, i released a new conceptual album for piano solo and sounds.

If you have time to listen a little, thanks !



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

Now with the holiday behind us, I have returned to the Octet. Here's my present rough thought for the second movement:

It's perhaps a near miss, or a glancing collision, with minimalism. My designation as draft, in conjunction with the sparseness of voicing, might be easily misinterpreted as an indication that the piece presented is incomplete, but this isn't really so. I only designate this as a draft because I have vacillated between leaving it in its present form, in which the… Continue

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…
