bio

Biography

Started writing music around 1976 .... up to now I have been writing instrumental music as this medium is where I best express my creative energy. Although I have had some formal training in classical flute, piano, & theory of music, my composition skills are self taught which helps me to be more spontaneous and improvisory, and get away from the traditional constraints of music theory. Composition style includes Contemporary Classical, Experimental, Jazz, New Age, Improvisory. I like to play around with alternating sections of dissonance and harmony. Other ideas which are included in my compositions are pedal bass, long extended chords, solo interludes between segments of harmony or dis-harmony, doubling up of bass and flute, sax or other solo instrument, and sections of disorganised, chaotic simultaneous melodies. Influences are probably many. Ethnic & Oriental influences may be detected from time to time, picked up during my 16 years in Asia, and travelling around Asian countries. Subject matter varies, but up to a point I like to follow Impressionist concept of some feeling or impression of a particular event, place or feeling that is happening now. My music is developing all the time, and usually I'm not sure what the next composition will sound like until it starts to unfold.
