OK.  Here's my piece for Chamber Orchestra written in 2008.

It was written for a concert devoted to the music of JS Bach.  Although this is an original piece of mine, there are subtle references to Bach Inventions No. 5 and 8 which periodically peak in from time to time.   I eagerly await your dissections.  :)

  • Had a quick listen and score follow only.


    What I admire is your willingness to give classical music a really strong "groove". If anything, I realy think that an electric bass would have added depth, as our ears are accustomed (through pop and jazz) to hearing a drum kit with electric bass, and it may have tied together some of the more fragmented upper parts - but I know you like that fragmented sound.

    Look forward to more of your innovations.

  • Thanks Adrian!  Critique appreciated!  :)

  • Fantastic piece. I really enjoyed it. It is an area that interests me, the blending of different 'genres' into a cohesive whole.

    Do you have any particular influences? Look forward to hearing more stuff.

  • Oh .... various influences.  John Adams is a hero of mine I guess.  There are many more of course,  but it was John that started it for me.

  • Great piece of music.  The interplay of instruments to create a whole was outstanding.

     

    Thank you for sharing this.

     

    Who did this performance and were you involved in the preparation of it?

     

     

  • Hi Tim!

    The group playing this piece is called Absolute Ensemble conducted by Kristjan Järvi.

    And yes, I did the conductors score and parts via the music software called Finale.  I've been using it for almost 20 years.

    Anyway, thanks for the kind words.  Much appriecated.
