Nick Carlson replied to H. S. Teoh's discussion Fugue in E-flat major, minor revision
"Thanks HS,
I should explain, I'm not the best at site reading so I play by ear mostly.  So the speed change is to help me hear it more closely. Fugues are a massive undertaking. Most composition students are required to write one to get a BM. I only…"

"Thanks Ingo,
I intend to get more involved. I prefer acoustic myself.  Hiccup Hocket was a basis of two notes thrown into a fractal mixer I designed for each instrument to play.
I can't find the sheet music right now. It's in my thesis though at the…"

"Hi Nick, I listened to Atomic Reaction and hiccup hocket and I preferred hiccup hocket, probably because it is acoustic instruments and is more accessible. It has an attractive rhythm scheme with an eccentric melody that works well for me.  It would…"

"Thanks for your reply Nick.
I had an enjoyable listen to your earlier work, Black Widow. There are some really nice moments in your writing for strings here. 
I hope your shifting gears and writing some more harmonically oriented music will bring…"

"Hi Marty,
The PhD got me rethinking music in general. I lost a lot of my love of both composing and listening.  Those are just a few of my pieces for the portfolio.
 
I leave the premise up to the listeners imagination with the title as a hint.…"

"Hi Nick,
I listened to your Atomic Reaction and plan to listen to your other links here later. I found Atomic Reaction an interesting sonic spatial achitecture. Do you have some kind of brief program notes to accompany this work or 'story' to go…"

I've been away for a very long time.  I'm not sure the last time I checked in.  I got my PhD thesis in music composition but have not felt good about it. It's based on the fractal flame algorithm by Scott Draves.  I used digital sound manipulations…

Christopher Sahar replied to Nick Carlson's discussion This piece may be too difficult to play
"Oh I agree with you about viewing music history as clearly delineated, I mean some parts of Bach's St John's could have been written 125 years later and then what do you do about Gombert who shunned Monteverdi's developments and made his own…"

"This all comes down to a matter of opinion but I will leave that alone.  As periods of music have been broken down to concise time forms of styles.  Bach ended the baroque, Beethoven ended the classical period.  It's only a definition of textbooks I…"
