Hallo Rudi! Ich war eine Stunde früher am Southbank Centre und habe gewartet und bis 17:30 alles durchsucht, aber niemanden gefunden :( Also bin ich halt wieder abgezogen. Echt schade :( Leider wusste ich nichts von irgendeinem Treffpunkt, gab es einen?
Glad you enjoyed what I have posted of "The Emancipation Quartet". I didn't post the first movement because I'm not overly fond of it, but oh, what the hay, I'll give it a go. Am listening to Tritiono as I type. The sound is great, love the stereo effects, interesting harmonic language!
Your Spring Quintet is so lively and spirited. Ever since the very first bass ostinato, one feels attracted and willing to hear more. I love the pulse always present in your work....thank you so much for sharing this, I enjoy it everytime I listen to it.
Great work Rudi!!!
Well, as you know, Easter no longer exists. But for anyone else who asks, I'm trying to get my work out of the way, so I can have my own little holiday... So... I'm not sure when I'll be uploading music... I'll let you know when I do...
Hi Rudy, I listened to all your tracks and find Twilight, Walpurgis Night and By Train to Petushki (is it a live performance?) exciting. Twilight sounds especially fresh. Your math&music experiments may lead to very profound music; another example of successful applying math in art is Fractal Art. I think you will soon come to greater music form and contrasts. Great work!
Many thanks Rudi! This is really too high note at 1:30 for a trumpet, I'll change it. The weekest parts in my opinion are Enchanted Forest (it is too long) and Flying with the Snowflakes (not too conclusive cadenza). I am listening to your piano music and think that you over-estimate the difficulty to perform these pieces: they are quite easy to perform. Your atonal style is excellent!
Hi Rudi, Don't be afraid of accelerating even fast fragments (slowing down is also an option). In my experience, getting too much virtuosic or even non-performable textures may also lead to interesting music. You may simplify it for a performability later.
Hi Rudi, Dammerung (Twilight) sounds very good and fresh in both versions, the texture is brilliant. Sometimes I come to interesting sounds accelerating 2 or 3 times some existing fragments and then including them into the original piece. I think it is worth to experiment with this piece as follows: Accelerate it and/or inverse vertically and/or inverse horizontally and then take good sounding fragments (if any) and add them into the original piece. Most such experiments typically fail, but sometimes a very good new music appears.
