Hi Rudi,

Yes, if you want to send me the score privately please do so to sslines@btinternet.com

I have tried to upload my 'fugue-like' piece but because it has lyrics it seems the file is too large to send as an attachment. I'll have another attempt later.

Do you live in Germany?

Hi,

I like your music!

Rudi, you are welcome. I appreciate your:

1- Experimentation 

2- Use of live musicians- especially drums!

I'm enjoying your music/experimentation....again!

I started listening to "Why So Nervous?" with a friend. We both instantly started dancing. I love it! :)

I finally sat down and listened to your Symphonie Nr. 1 Zweiter Satz. I enjoyed it a lot. It contained a lot of dissonant elements but I easily accepted that quality on an emotional level. The overall texture was very pleasant and 'open'. It was not overly dense. I feel like I was back in the forest again. I appreciate your choices in instrumentation. I felt like I was moving through an interesting landscape. The structure is a bit perplexing and I like that. :)  Keep up the good work!

Oh, I just noticed- you posted a new recording. Your unfinished first Symphony? It should be very interesting. I'll give it a listen...

Hi Rudi. Yes- I like Soundcloud because...it looks cool, and it shows the waveform, it's big, and tells me how many times the tune has been played. I got the Soundcloud idea from my friend's page- Ray Kemp.

What are you working on now? Today I am at the DAW, recording and arranging two compositions that I will soon submit to my drummer on Nantucket, MA.

Your 'Forest' is a mysterious and dangerous place. I enjoyed the journey!

I love the unpredictability of your pieces. The blend of major and minor scales, if I am correct, is emphatic. By the word blend I mean the transition back and forth bet the scales. !! A brilliant soundscape!

Thank you sir, !!

Rudi, I loved your orchestration and cat-and-mouse quality of the instruments chasing one another.  I thought more of a jungle or something prehistoric than a European forest (which always brings to mind Bambi, sorry).  This was certainly not a tame pretty piece, but had a perilous-survival-of-the-fittest feel to it. I liked the whole tone scales, as it gave it an feeling of being out of the realm of civilization.

Hi Rudi,

Thanks for listening.  I listened to your work as well, and I think, wow! It is very sharp, intense, precise.  Walpurgisnacht is vampire-esque, suspenseful;Twilight is pensive; Tritono con Parasol has a pointalistic lovely guitar sound.  Love your work!

HI Rudi

Fantastic music. Really interesting and engaging not just saying that. Be great to hear musicians playing it live! Love the more contemporary twits you contrast with older traditions and forms. You make it sound easiy!

 

Best wishes

 

Matt

Thanks you, Rudi. As soon as I can figure out how to post some of my music, I will! There's a little bit of a learning curve here...

Hey Rudi,

I moved the halloween music thingy to my blog if you wanted to post that very scaaaaryy tune there!

I see I was right about the mathematical content then - how interesting! I have considered use of maths ideas in music before, when thinking of ways to make my work original, though I planned to use it more as a minor dimension of creativity, rather than a central idea.
Glad you liked my music - thanks for commenting!

Hello Rudi! Nice to see you on Saturday - I'm another one who wishes he could have talked to you more. Your work includes some very delicate and subtle ideas and has interesting structure to it - this appeals to me as a mathematics graduate and I enjoy listening to this kind of thing, though I don't choose to write it myself. I like experimenting when playing my piano, sometimes trying out ideas based on mathematical concepts. Do you ever use that kind of approach?
