All that is music has its place in our life. Music can wash over us, fill you with joy, like an ocean it can arouse your spirit, heal the sick, purge your sorrows, reveal the divine.
Allow music to absorb you into its own unique time-locked sound world. The standing stones of Calanais are my choir and orchestra.
Nuova Musica: 'new music'
Unless we listen to new music and make a place for it in the coveted world of concert programmes and staged current events, we will miss something very special that is happening right in the 'now'.
Contemporary music, within our current time.
The composer, choosing sounds, creates sounds, manipulates and codifies sounds, translating them into sonic statements and musical gestures that affect the listeners. These compositions, or ‘pieces’ if you prefer are ‘time-locked’ timbres, rhythms and harmonic relationships often dynamically specific: the silence before, the first measures and dynamic impact, whether pp
or ff. Then, onwards to the final cadences or, tailing-off and back to the silence.
