How Would You Classify Your Work?
jawoodruff posted a topic in Composers' HeadquartersSaw an interesting comment in a post in the upload where someone was trying to describe their music in terms of whether they were 'neo-baroque' or not. So, figured it'd be an interesting discussion to be had -but... I don't want to just see a one word explanation of your music. So, I'll describe how I view my work -my language, my view, nada nada nada- and then you can follow suit. In other words, let's make this a valuable discussion. I consider my music to be chiefly modern. By that, I use a harmonic language rich in dissonance and outside of the traditional concepts of tonality (notice I didn't say my music was purely atonal). I do consider harmony and tonality to some degree -even in my more serial guided works. I also consider myself a neo-classicist. I strongly value form and tradition and believe staunchly in utilizing structure to make the most out of limited material (hence you'll see a lot of development and counterpoint within my works). I also, at times, borrow from other aesthetics and fuse different -often far separated- techniques together. It's not a fetch to see a whole tone derived section within a work of mine that is heavily centered on a serial row. Thus, you could say I'm a neo-classical modern eclectic.
