Here's an extract of a piece I made with Max/Msp using Sine waves and microsound to produce an experimental sound composition. Agorithmic composition is always interesting.
Looking forward to showcasing my music at the Creative Circles meeting tomorrow. You can register at Eventbrite.
Just back from Canada. Here's a novel idea by Chris Baker. Send your friends a composition postcard!
He sent it to the principal cellist for the State Orchestra of Mexico.
A very interesting morning listening to new music by a range of composers in Stockbridge Parish Church. The Compositions were workshopped with feedback to composers. Inspirational.
Creativity in Later Life
Played fiddle at a Crisis at Christmas Event today- a great organisation that supports those that are homeless.
Busy time performing in the run up to Christmas. Sessions at the Canonsgait, an orchestral performance, as well as performances of the Scots Music Group, a wonderful organisation on which I am a voluntary non Executive Director. Fun and rewarding.
Spending a few days at Inshriach Bothy doing field recordings in the Cairngorms. Looking forward to composing new work inspired by Nan Shepherd's poetry of the Cairngorms.
Excited to be selected for an artists residency at Inshriach in an off grid bothy.
I am planning to do some field recording inspired by the wonderful poetry of Nan Shepherd who wrote about the Cairngorms in her book "In the Cairngorms"
