Music Composers Unite!
This morning I decided to sit through a performance of Mahler's 4th symphony on youtube... in the hopes of expanding my horizons with Mahler and all that, y'know, since in the past I've really only heard his 1st symphony in full, and only snippets of the others.
Unfortunately, I have to confess my conclusion is still the same as before: his music just doesn't do it for me. I don't deny his genius at the craft, and certainly he's an excellent orchestrator -- probably far beyond what I…Continue
What is meant by "A plug-in is needed to display this content" ? After being inactive on this site for some time my music posts are being blocked from playing. ?

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…Continue
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

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…Continue
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,…

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…Continue
The second movement of the String Octet.
It's perhaps a near miss, or a glancing collision, with minimalism.

Not the most up-to-date version, but this is an old piece anyway.…Continue
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…Continue
