"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…"

The score has still to be reworked (especially the accidentals). "

"@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.…"

  • Es tut mier Leid fur mein schlect Deutsch, aber, Ich liebe alle dein musik. :)
  • I love the unpredictability of your pieces. The blend of major and minor scales, if I am correct, is emphatic. By the word blend I mean the transition back and forth bet the scales. !! A brilliant soundscape!
  • Thank you sir, !!
  • Rudi, I loved your orchestration and cat-and-mouse quality of the instruments chasing one another.  I thought more of a jungle or something prehistoric than a European forest (which always brings to mind Bambi, sorry).  This was certainly not a tame pretty piece, but had a perilous-survival-of-the-fittest feel to it. I liked the whole tone scales, as it gave it an feeling of being out of the realm of civilization.
  • Hi Rudi,

    Thanks for listening.  I listened to your work as well, and I think, wow! It is very sharp, intense, precise.  Walpurgisnacht is vampire-esque, suspenseful;Twilight is pensive; Tritono con Parasol has a pointalistic lovely guitar sound.  Love your work!

     

  • HI Rudi

    Fantastic music. Really interesting and engaging not just saying that. Be great to hear musicians playing it live! Love the more contemporary twits you contrast with older traditions and forms. You make it sound easiy!

     

    Best wishes

     

    Matt

  • Thanks you, Rudi. As soon as I can figure out how to post some of my music, I will! There's a little bit of a learning curve here...
  • Hey Rudi,

    I moved the halloween music thingy to my blog if you wanted to post that very scaaaaryy tune there!
  • I see I was right about the mathematical content then - how interesting! I have considered use of maths ideas in music before, when thinking of ways to make my work original, though I planned to use it more as a minor dimension of creativity, rather than a central idea.
    Glad you liked my music - thanks for commenting!
  • Hello Rudi! Nice to see you on Saturday - I'm another one who wishes he could have talked to you more. Your work includes some very delicate and subtle ideas and has interesting structure to it - this appeals to me as a mathematics graduate and I enjoy listening to this kind of thing, though I don't choose to write it myself. I like experimenting when playing my piano, sometimes trying out ideas based on mathematical concepts. Do you ever use that kind of approach?
