Part of my cycle "the Stars of the Constellations". Sterope is the uppermost & faintest of the seven main stars of the Pleiades star cluster in the constellation of Taurus. The piece is set for three vocal soloist and male choir, plus a drone made up of 4 tracks of a tuning pitch pipe and a chorus of violas and cellos. Recorded in Garage Band for Mac. The recording follows the score. I made up my own system of notation for the overtones sung. That may have to be re-notated in the future.
Classical compositions of mine in various "modern" styles and some Music Concrete pieces of mine. Composed, performed and recorded by me. Set to Movie Maker slideshows of my artwork, photos and video experiments.
Original pieces of mine that, in some way are considered ElectroAcoustic pieces. Covers everything from Music Concrete to Ambient to keyboard improvisations. Mostly all by me on multi-track, with the occasional guest performer.
A multi-part series of listening examples for the instruments of the orchestra. Fairly general information about each one, with pictures and diagrams. Made for my orchestration students and anyone else who wants to know. Made with Windows MovieMaker. Plus, some videos by others on the instruments of the orchestra I think are good.
Videos of famous or influential classical pieces (as opposed to my own) that follow along with the published score. Styles vary from early classical pieces in standard notation to modern scores made with graphic notation.
This is intended as a study guide for people learning how to follow a score. No copyright infringement is intended.
Pieces of mine in a rock (or other popular) style(s), or rock bands I've played in, set to Movie Maker slideshows using photos and artwork of mine, or photos of the bands and people in them, posters and tickets from gigs... stuff like that.
An on-going cycle of pieces based on the stars in the various constellations. The pieces vary from solo to chamber to orchestral works and electro-acoustic pieces. Very few have recordings so far, and I imagine I'll be working on this cycle for the rest of my life.
The idea for the cycle began in the mid-late 90s when I was working on the piece "Schedar" for solo guitar. I already had a couple pieces with names based on stars and so I continued on with the idea, not realizing how many pieces would be necessary to finish the cycle.
