A fugue without counterpoint

A small 4-voices fugue, resulting from a bet with my teacher Karl Rasmussen. Composed in December 2010, it is for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon.

The original italian title means "Fugue in a single-file line", as the notes can be connected from the beginning to the end by a single line.

I hope you enjoy!

A Lover's Wish

Just one of last year's songs on lyrics by a poetess that I like very much.

Remembering the Night Sky

This is a non-printable pdf of the score as requested by Julie Harris. A printable version is available on CreateSpace and Amazon. Feel free to comment. I do plan on making a few small changes before the next performance.

Remembering the Night Sky and Nørgård

Someone requested that I post some work. Since little is available on YouTube, here is the only piece (aside from an improvisation) that is. ;

This is a video of the premiere of Remembering the Night Sky with Diane Hunger on alto saxophone. Be warned, the video hangs with a couple of minutes left, but the sound continues. (I've never had…

Mahler 4

This morning I decided to sit through a performance of Mahler's 4th symphony on youtube... in the hopes of expanding my horizons with Mahler and all that, y'know, since in the past I've really only heard his 1st symphony in full, and only snippets of the others.

Unfortunately, I have to confess my conclusion is still the same as before: his music just doesn't do it for me.  I don't deny his genius at the craft, and certainly he's an excellent orchestrator -- probably far beyond what I…

Just an old song of mine in a home recording from last summer. Me and a friend on guitars and him also singing it as my voice was quite out of order. Since it has Greekk lyrics I give a rough translation

New song, "Tidal Wave"

Hey everyone, I'm new to this site and its awesome to be a part of it. 

I'm a pretty novice composer, I have been a musician for the past 11 years but have more recently gotten better at digitally composing music with DAW software. I mess around with anything from movie soundtrack-esque tracks to some hip-hop style beats and even some upbeat electronic songs.

I'd love for anyone to check out the latest track I uploaded and give me some honest…

New Solo Piano Album - "Sounds"

Hi all,

Yesterday, i released a new conceptual album for piano solo and sounds.

If you have time to listen a little, thanks !

A little about the project:

After listening to scientists sounds recorded from different sources (space, planets, earth...), i decided to perform solo piano improvisations with some basic structures.

So, every track start from with an improvisation principle,…

"Raoul's Rescue Mission" for narrator and orchestra/piano

Hi! Recently I finished a composition which I worked on for more than a year. It's a musical story for narrator and orchestra. I also created a version for narrator and piano because I am a pianist and it's probably easier to get a piano version of the work performed.

The story is titled "Raoul's Rescue Mission" and is based on a children's book I wrote some 15 years ago. The piano version is probably the easiest performed by two persons (a pianist and a speaker),…

Did I really write all this crazy hard stuff?!

Today I finally got a chance to actually sit down at the piano (well, an electronic one, but still) and try to play my fugue in C# minor myself for the first time. And I was greatly dismayed to discover that I couldn't play it at all... What sounded relatively tame in midi turned out to be extremely difficult for me to play.  That's probably a sign of how lousy my non-existent piano skills are, or perhaps fugues are…

String Octet 2nd Movement Draft

The second movement of the String Octet.

It's perhaps a near miss, or a glancing collision, with minimalism.
