Here's a piece of music my mate, Dan, wrote.
It's a bit dense to begin with, but it's supposed to be.
The recording doesn't do the performance justice.
very good. I see what you mean about it being a nice idea, though I worry sometimes that some contemporary classical scenes like to push this conceptually-driven attitude to composition a bit overmuch. I did a music degree at Goldsmiths and they loved that stuff, but I'd hate classical music to end up like the contemporary (visual) art scene which seems to me excessively conceptual.
He gets a good idea for a piece and runs with it. It's all a big bit of fun.
sorry, that came off like I was criticising the piece itself, which I wasn't. Actually I like the dense bit at the beginning most.
