The piece I was writing about in the latest post is for trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, cello, piano and percussion. The next step is to form the concepts in the latest post into a musical exposition. My intent is to let each concept influence seperate movements: 1. Bricolage: the percussionist is using the other instruments. 2. Simplification: simplified and minimalistic. 3. Collage: short contrasting musical fragments. 4. Appropriation: appropriating older music. 5. Performance: performing words and pop. The reader who has read the latest post carefully can perhaps guess that I have assembled the three remaining descriptions into the fifth movement.
Remaining are then “use of words prominently as the central artistic element”, “depiction of consumer or popular culture” and “Performance art”.What do you think?
Here I publish information of the music I've written. I also blog about my projects and thoughts about music in general.
I am a contemporary classical composer and compose music for classical musicians, but as you can see from my worklist I've also done other things - including live electronics, electroacoustic music (eam) and music for other types of ensembles (e.g. a jazz trio).
My works have been performed globally, including Europe, Asia and North America.
