I do a little composing…
Again in 2017, more music for modern dance….
In 2016 I was commissioned to write several pieces for modern dance….7 pieces of music at 7 minutes each for 7 choreographers in 7 different spaces. Fun!
You can listen to some of them here at my soundcloud site.
Check out some of my ambient soundscapes on my SoundCloud site HERE.
I’ve done a string of a cappella choral pieces
looking for good choirs who can sing these tunes
would love to write more of these if I had some positive imput to encourage me on
download the pdfs if you lead a choir and would like to try them out
Hope-Bringer – SATB, ac – great text by Tess Ward, Oxford, England
Bless Me– SATB, ac – touching text by Tess Ward
Christmas Benediction – SATB,ac – perfect closing to a Christmas service
I’m also proud of this congregational benediction with my own text…
May the Lord of All Peace
Another sample of my electro-acoustic dabbling…. bells/cloches/sinos
All is played on what is perhaps the worst electric guitar ever
and an old BOSS effects pedal.
(I’m simply playing with bell sounds from calm to chaos to calm)
In the past I wrote a good bit for childern’s choirs
Below are videos of a few solo instrumental pieces I did for modern dance
This rondo is a lament…for the native peoples who were expelled from this Floridian land…for the lack of water in this natural wet land.
That’s me banking away on a Martin guitar with a rubber mallet and my daughter, Kori dancing.
Here I’m trying to evoke the peacefulness of the surroundings later being invaded by encroaching urbanization.
