  1. This is my "Three Sententiae for String Trio Op. 325". It is my 2nd set of sententiae for the ensemble of string trio. Here is the link to my previous set of sententiae for string trio:
  2. I'm at a loss of words on how to describe this work. The idea behind it was a study in string textures -yet, it seems to have gone beyond that somewhat (at least to me). Compositionally, each section utilizes a descending motif -with various variations over it. It's definitely not minimalist in design as the changes aren't as subtle -and there is a fine demarcation between some of the textures. Hope you enjoy.
  3. Closer to the finished product. This piece is intended as a submission for a music festival -so, I'm trying to make sure it's as close to perfect as possible. I've expanded the second entrance of the slow section -playing around with the ascending chromatic scale alongside a 4 note motive. This work is a bit personal to me in that it is a reflection on life, death, and my own experience of the two (under the lense of bipolar disorder). Hope you enjoy!
  4. Proud of it. string trio mvt 1 demo 111.mp3
  5. this seems like a genuine community and I'm honored to be able to share my pieces here. Some feedback would be wonderful.
  6. This is my "Nine Sententiae for String Trio Op. 277". It is my 2nd composition inspired by the YC Summer 2016 Competition on the theme of Shakespeare and is my entry for that competition. It is a set of nine sententiae for string trio inspired by and intended to demonstrate the truth of the Shakespeare dictum from Hamlet (Polonius), "Brevity is the soul of wit." 'Sententia' is a form I have originated and define(d) it thus: 'Sententia' (plural: 'sententiae') is the Latin for the word 'sentence'. The Oxford dictionary defines 'sententia' as "A pithy or memorable saying, a maxim, an aphorism, an epigram; a thought, a reflection." For me a 'sententia' is a musical utterance of a thought that is complete in itself, like a sentence. It is also an utterance that finds no need for any elaboration or development. Hence my sententiae are short pieces that come in sets and are often related to each other in some way. I have also provided the extended context of the Shakespeare Hamlet quotation in the PDF of this description. I hope that these sententiae that are in fact themselves examples of a form based on brevity have succeeded in demonstrating that famous Shakespeare quotation. I fully believe it, as demonstrated by my development of the form of the "sententia", and was inspired by this Shakespeare quotation to compose nine of my best sententiae. As is usual with my sententiae, they are brief. But in tribute to this great Shakespeare quotation occasioning them, I have taken extra care to ensure that they are pregnant with meaning and witty in their brevity! I am aware that composing to "demonstrate" such a quotation exposes me to being judged by it, by the principle that it proclaims. But I hope that I have succeeded to meet the challenge in these nine sententiae! I think that this Shakespeare dictum is unique in that it itself demonstrates what it proclaims, the truth it declares. It is witty in its brevity! It sets out a profound truth about wit, wisdom, insight, cleverness, intellect, intelligence, and/or humour (to use some of the synonyms/connotations of 'wit') in the briefest possible way!
