"(still about "ears to the dozen")
All these messages in one piece! You seem to have alot to say... Really artistic work.
Do you actually write it out? The cell phones and conversations were intentional... (?) I hope!

"Do you do photography, as well as music?

I mean... are the photos above by yourself?

Very enjoyable... partially, very artistic!

"fun... really fun! Experiment, really needs some grip...

Actually, you could simply give it some type of mathematical form, and you have that "grip" included... The musical form, is what makes our creativity so enjoyable (listen to Bach!)."

"sounds fun to me... keep it up.

You might have tough time, learning instrumentation, if you always stay on the "electronic" stage...

Maybe you have an academic composer around you, who can guide you on this(?)."

  • Ario, thank you so much for your kind words. It's nice to meet you!
  • Hi

    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 the positive critique on my video Universal Salon and the Experiment music piece.

    You music is wonderful. :)
  • Thanks for your kind words, Ario.
  • 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!
  • thanks, Ario - I like a good argument... !
  • Danke dir

    Ja, Ehrgeizig bin glaube ich schon. So langsam muss was passieren ;-)


  • 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! ) :)
  • Hallo Ario! I will try to comment on your 12-Tone-Piece in German - hopefully this weekend. Thanks for joining the German Language Group. Herzlich willkommen! Rudi
  • Thanks for your kind words, even if the tutti was too short for you.
