Music Composers Unite!

Gav Brown's Blog – January 2013 Archive (2)


The single most challenging thing to me as a composer and what I hope to improve the most in my compositions is 'return.' Some of the best music I have heard begins and ends the same way, and often repeats initial themes throughout. Return coheses a piece like nothing else and seems to me to be a key element of  compositional mastery.

Scott Joplin at 137

At the time I composed this, in 2004, Scott Joplin, the greatest ragtime composer of all time, and a great influence on me, would have been 137 years old if he was still alive. I've taken inspiration from him to compose this piece, which is in a progressive rock style, but with lots of syncopation and motifs inspired by this wonderful American composer. Hope you enjoy!
