Looking for studio space in Atlanta!

It looks like I will be moving to Atlanta and setting up shop for a few years. My fiancée Tina’s job is most likely moving us there around the beginning of next year, as late as spring '10. When I have all details I will be certain to let you know them so we can keep in touch.



I am immediately concerned with looking for space for my studio in Atlanta. Do you have any connections there that I could ask about space for rent/barter? Either in a commercial studio, some rehearsal type… Continue

New Projects update: MY new Origin CD and Primo Kims new vocal CD

I'm really excited about the two projects I've managed to bring to fruition this summer: My third Big Band CD and a vocal project for Seattle singer / pianist

Primo Kim . The vocal project couldn't have been pulled off without the invaluable help of fellow composer Chris Alpier, who managed to turn three full live symphonic orchestrations into actual music with his programming skills. ( unfortunately , due to copyright restrictions, I can't post the final tracks here, but when the CD is… Continue

Mozart and Dissonance

Mozart and Dissonance.



A frequent contributor to various of the Composer’s Forum blogs groups etc., recently made a remark, supposedly in defense of “modern music,” that Mozart composed A Musical Joke K 552 as a test bed for modernity. Since the piece was not well received, we are told, Mozart abandoned it. Apparently the author wished to make the point that she like Mozart has to put up with audiences who don’t “understand” the new musical language.



To set the matter… Continue

Announcing The New Choir Work

Hey All. My new work for choir and piano is finally finished. It is in MIDI form since I haven't had a performance of it yet. I am hoping to get a performance of it this coming Fall by either the CSUSB Chamber Singers or Concert Choir. Maybe I'll try to put the audio up on my page once it is performed live. To listen to a version of it, click this link: http://wildpianoman.xanga.com/ and click on the box that says:"Wake Up My Love MIDI Choral Work (SATB + Piano). It should work. Let me know if… Continue

Any Composers know of any composition gigs?

Hey all. I was hoping to get some outside, real world experience in composing for films and other venues. I was wondering if any of you have advice as to where I could start exploring this realm of composition? I really would like others to use my music and for me to be sought after. I know it seems selfish, but I really get a self-esteem boost when my music is performed by others.

a bit more on music critics and "new" music

New Music ..About music critics and criticism .

We all remember stories of the negative comments when the official critical community encountered Beethoven 5 and 6 (and 3 and 1) and a host of other music we now regard as masterpieces and that got panned on first performance. So I suppose we take as gospel that critics get it wrong every time, when in fact most of the time critics get it right, or more right than the rest of the audience. The must or they wouldn’t keep their… Continue
