"This is a good point, Rodney ;-) Well, I wanted it exactly like this. It's part of a series of miniatures. With every miniature I want to bring about other aspects of this instrument.I'll have to ask the performer how and with which equipment he…"

"@Mariza: Thinking again about my statement I have to correct me. It is surely possible to write a contemporary fugue. Will there be enough composers to join a "Fugue Contest"?
I had several listens to Dave Ostrowski's "Fughetta", and liked it.…"

  • 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?

  • Hello Rudi, nice to see you / Schön, Dich zu sehen :-)

  • 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!
