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

And hete is some electronic music inspired by milonga dance. It´s just too fast so I named it "Supersonic Milonga".

These days I listened too much tango music and tried to mix it with some other music genres. This is my view on classical string quartet spiced with a pinch of drums playing gentle almost-tango (or pseudotango).

This is, tentatively, the last installment in the Dark Matters in Mirrors collection, a project spanning about the last five years or so.…Continue
I had to turn right around and write another fugue, otherwise the first item, and in all likelihood the last, heard on my Soundcloud stream would be Ferneyhough's Boogie Voogie.
Well it seemed a good enough excuse. This, like so many of my more recent writings, is a mixture of Ionian, Aeolian, and Phrygian modes, as well as a few others with glances at chromaticism as well. With no bridge, close imitation often in stretto, this is a structurally archaic style of fugue adorned with…Continue
