Thank you. I'm enjoying your music and the development of it's themes. Very impressive. Some of My Ear are Going Ten to the Dozen, the phone for example, are recorded and arranged then played to work with the live musicians. To make the it into a more performance piece the musicians phone the audience, each other and pretend to make, often humous, calls. 


Very best wishes

Thanks for your queries.

In exploring these ideas, I tried to invent terms that were basically logical, simple and (where possible) reasonably self-explanatory.

“Thome” is a combination of “theme” (tonal era) and “tone” (…”tone row of atonal serial technique)…. Theme+tone=thome!

“Phases” are the basic blocks of material (tonal, atonal or indeterminate) from which the linear argument is constructed.

“A, B and D” The phases are denoted by letters of the Greek alphabet – alpha, beta and delta, this was to distinguish them from the thomes which are assigned the normal lower case letters - “a, b, and d”.

I don’t quite follow your third question – you’ll need to expand a bit on this.

I would be happy to send you a copy of Tanto Meglio. Unfortunately the ms is far too big to scan, and – as yet – I have not had the opportunity to *Sibelius* it. I could always post a hard copy if you wish. (… the full score of fugato – which uses the same technique - is already on the Sibelius site – its free download.)

Ironic you should live in Vienna. My teacher, Humphrey Searle, studied there with Anton Webern in the 1920’s. …. Small world!

Danke Ario :

your music is quite professional as well and evidences both training and real musical skill. It's a real treat to get away from the omnipresent drones and Taiko drums that seem to grow like kudzu on this and other boards.

Auf Weidersehn Ario ( that exhausts my german vocabulary! ) :)

Thanks for your kind words, even if the tutti was too short for you.

Hey ! Thanks for the request !
I loved 'swelling madness' and liked 'piano'.
You have an interesting and straight forward style of music (from the 4 tracks here I gather !).
So what's your story ?

Hi Ario, thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. Look forward to learning more about what you're up to.

Piano is beautiful! playful, mischievous, sophisticated narrative.
