Today is the day.

In rehearsing The Mousetrap, Pete and I have found that it runs a bit longer than I'd expected earlier on. And it's a lunchtime recital, and quite a few fellow workers here at the office will turn out . . . so we can't have the concert running long. Regrettably, then, I'll strike Blue Shamrock from today's program, and figure on including it in a program later in the year.

Cheers,
~Karl

Many thanks! I am enormously pleased with how well it went. I might yet wish that my clarinet had been in better shape still, but the composer has much to be happy for. Apart from having creditable performances of a couple of premieres to send off to a brace of a fellow composers, Pete and I made a fairly good job of the premiere of my own The Mousetrap.

Pete is such a damned good player! The performance yesterday, nothwithstanding its distance from Perfection, amply justified my speculation in writing such a behemoth of a chamber work.

I hadn't thought about it in a while; yet when I was asked the inevitable question, yesterday, about what tie-in the title has with the piece, my former thoughts had settled into something approaching coherence.

The title comes from Hamlet. The play-within-the-play is The Murder of Gonzago, and yet when Claudius asks, Hamlet tells him the name is The Mousetrap. Generally, in the background of the composition, were thoughts of how Shakespeare on one level, drew frankly from existing dramatic sources, but created something of excellence which is all his own; and on another level, has a distinct dramatic event which is an organic piece of the whole. Part of my thinking in the piece was, a new (for myself) approach to including 'found objects', and also variation in representing the object.

Now, I started writing a piece for Pete and me to play together almost exactly a year ago. Originally it was going to be a relatively brief piece . . . and sparse and atmospheric. But there wasn't the time to wrap up composition and get even an easy piece rehearsed in time for the recital, so I set the MS. down.

By the time I took it back up, I had decided on a somewhat grander plan. Part of this may simply have been, that in my mind, it was a slow-sustained piece for a long time now, and compositionally I wanted to write a burst of activity to contrast. Even in the early stages of the composition, I had included an 'organic quotation', though something pretty obscure and with sentimental value here at home, to make Maria and Irina smile . . . an allusion (though not, in The Mousetrap, in waltz-time) to a waltz used in the Gary Cooper / Audrey Hepburn movie Love in the Afternoon, called "Fascination." Soon I was not only broadening the compositional scope, but making a game of composing an environment whose 'orbit' might capture various bits from the literature. Part of what was going on, too, was likely the fact that in writing for viola, I had in mind Shostakovich's references elsewhere in both the Viola Sonata and the Fifteenth Symphony. And my own fascination with enlarging the piece was partly a matter of building on the Studies in Impermanence . . . thinking that, having managed a block of 20 minutes with a solo wind instrument, it must after all be an even easier accomplishment with two instruments.

Imperfections of yesterday's execution notwithstanding, response was warm, from listeners with a variety of musical background. So I eagerly await the recording.

Cheers,

Gorgeous, or should I say, de toute beauté!
You really compose music that could belong in many different cultural periods and which would be appreciated by different opponents engaged in vicious aesthetic battles. That "universal" appeal I have now heard more than once in your religious works.

So... Karl... Could you tell us something about you, your music and your composing process?

How would you define your music stylistically? Who are you influenced by? Are you influenced by folk music of certain regions, e.g. Balinese gamelan of African tribal? When do you usually compose? Do you use a computer? Do you write your scores by hand? Do you compose at the piano? Stuff like that.

Thank you for your interest!
Sylph wrote:How would you define your music stylistically?
I wouldn’t; no single stylistic label fits, and my palette is still ‘dynamically acquisitive’. In the realm of pitch, for instance: Sometimes I write in a pitch-world that is no particular distance from Common Practice; sometimes, a great distance from it; sometimes I write for a percussion ensemble, in which questions of pitch are irrelevant. I like being able to draw from a wide range. And I've been writing long enough, that (I feel, at least) it all sounds like my music.
Sylph wrote:Who are you influenced by?
Two dozen composers I like, and sometimes by music I quite dislike. Three fairly powerful, sustained influences have been: Stravinsky, Feldman & Russian Orthodox liturgical music.
Sylph wrote:Are you influenced by folk music of certain regions, e.g. Balinese gamelan of African tribal?
Of certain regions, overall not, though I do own a general influence from various folk musics. While I was doing my Master’s in Virginia, Scott DeVeaux (who teaches jazz there, and who had studied drumming in Ghana) had me assist in his African drumming class, and the rhythmic thinking I gleaned thence, I have found a great variety of applications for, since.

I've been told that my Alleluia in D sounds like Norwegian folk-music; yet, I did not have any such musical specificity in view as I was writing it.

Sylph wrote:When do you usually compose?
Whenever I can, around the mundane jobs. Often on the bus-ride into or back home from Boston.
Sylph wrote:Do you use a computer?
A great deal, though generally my use of the computer is to produce a legible, publisher-ready score and parts.
Sylph wrote:Do you write your scores by hand?
I certainly do far the greater part of my composition proper, by hand.
Sylph wrote:Do you compose at the piano?
I have to modify the answer to this from “seldom” to “never.” It is many years since I had regular access to a piano.

Met with a flautist last night to talk about the alto flute version of The Angel Who Bears a Flaming Sword. Well, we talked about it, in the midst of his reading through it. Even while he has yet to learn the notes and the rhythms, I recognize the piece, and am pleased to have composed it. He likes it, too, and seems to think we should take steps to publish the piece among the flute community (The National Flute Association, e.g.). Sign me up; at worst, it will be the 50th time that something which seemed a reasonable hope fizzled out over time.

On the bus this morning, did some work on the new piece (or, one of two new pieces, perhaps) for cello ensemble. The basic ideas for this passage, I threw down on a page some time ago, so they’ve been percolating a bit. So these 25-ish bars this morning, are a mixture of spontaneous reflection, and a stretch of music I first ‘envisioned’ maybe a month or so ago.

I have 90 minutes or so composed of a ballet based on Dostoyevsky's novella White Nights. In a sense, it is a work-in-progress, because it is not yet finished, and I remain keen to finish it. In the practical sense of have I been able to find time to re-immerse myself in the project . . . progress is exactly what that work has not been in, since I have needed to take on part-time work in addition to the day-job.

At some point I will be able to take the work back up. But not just at present.

At times, I love it, at times, it drives me mad, opresses my ears. I don't really know all that many orchestral pieces that call for one. :? I know Ennio Morricone called for one in his soundtrack for Sahara, probably to depict the howling of the desert wind and to imitate the ethnic, Arabic flutes... But it didn't work for me. In the same way it was weird to see George Fenton use the duduk to depict the same desert — slightly less awkward, though. Duduk — east of Egypt... West of Egypt — hm... :?
