Things have been moving very fast lately in the music world. As I said in an early post the first 3 months were very busy doing shows. I’ve been having a little rest trying to catch up on things and concentrating on other projects. I was due to be composing a piece for the Aberystwyth Musicfest I have decided to defer this until next year. Looking ahead I am going to be composing a piece for Contemporary Music for All this summer. The piece is called “Natural World” I am looking forward to seeing which instruments I am composing for. This is a new challenge for me as I have been used to performing as to composing. I have been doing a lot of research into composition on the internet and been recommend a book by a good friend of mine.
I have written a few pieces already but would like to learn more. I would be interested to know. How do you go about writing music. How do you go about things ? people have different ways of working. I will keep you updated with more news very soon.
Please note I am not performing any shows until May 2012.
My new rehearsal period begins in May 2012.
Just thought I’d share some news with you. I have just found out that I am one of 6 composers to write a commission for the Aberystwyth Music Fest 2012 with Composer John Metcalf. My piece will be performd by the Orion Symphony Orchestra based in London. I will keep you updated with further developments.
As the distant jingle jangle of Christmas and the bells of New Year have passed it’s back to work for us musicians. This also brings with it a little update to my blog for 2012. As you may have noticed over the past few months the layout of the blog has changed alot. This is due to getting used to WordPress,it’s a brilliant site and free to use. That’s if you don’t want to updated to the Pro version. It has suited me well over the past few months.
Well what’s in store for the first part of 2012 ? As per usual I am very busy. This consists of 3 Panto’s and an Opera which will take me up to March. This includes rehearsal and doing my day job as well. It doesn’t sound to bad as I am only Musical Directing one of them. I will be glad of a little break in March. Then I have nothing until June. Then very busy up until Christmas again.
I am looking at doing some composing this year. I have already started working on a few pieces already. I am now on Soundcloud and will be adding more pieces over time. For those of you that missed my Christmas composition thats on there to. It’s a great way of getting your music heard.
That’s all for now. All that remains for me to say is “Happy New Year to all my readers” Hope you have a great musical year.
