Can you recommend prospective examiners for this doctoral study?

Hello, I will be submitting my work and exegesis for a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in a few months. It has to do with the establishment of a field of study in COMPOSING WITH STYLES AND GENRES. It includes major and minor compositions demonstrating the practice with an exegesis containing an intro, methodology, background, analyses, an auto ethnographic essay, and a glossary of the practice as an initial taxonomy. I am wanting to have you as my colleagues to suggest prospective examiners who… Continue

LA Scoring Strings ... Full TILT!

Hi all,

Well I've realised that my LASS demos have received a lot of attention so I thought I'd post up something new with them.

Composing with Styles and Genres

Hello all, I am interested in corresponding with other composers who engage in composing with styles and genres. THis is the subject of my doctoral study where I differentiate between poly-stylism which is a common enough occurence, and poly genre music that gives two or more genre SIGNALS in the music. I am also looking at how the composer is both product of global cosmospolitan society (emerging) and a contributor to heritage. My new compositions demonstrate the practice that becomes a field… Continue

Frozen wastes and expanding waists!

I've recently been working on a project that could become a TV documentary series, covering the exploits of a bunch of admirable chaps who are setting out for Antarctica in December to reclaim a speed record from the Norwegians for reaching the South Pole via Scott's infamous Beardmore Glacier route. These guys will be hoping to do the trip in three weeks, pulling pulks behind them over ice. They are spending this year training for the event. For more information see… Continue

It has been 3 months since my last post, so thought I'd finally get round to updating it...
Since the last post I have finished the string quartet I was working on, which I am very happy with. The entire piece is about 15 minutes long, and I'm looking forward to hear it performed.
I have also had a performance by the Rednote Ensemble of a piece I wrote for Violin, Bassoon and Trombone, which took place in Edinburgh's Traverse Theatre, and I am now working on two more projects for…

Brass Piece (under 2 min.) - What are you reactions to it?

I would like to get your reactions to this brass piece.

What I'm looking for at this moment is things like this:

- What does this make you think of?

- Does this remind you of any composer (~s)?

- Does this sound like a particular era or genre?

Thank you for… Continue
