Biography

I have been on for more than a year now and have thrived on the conversations here on iCompositions.

I write mostly classical music, presumably a comfort zone: I've only literally made music as part of high school band. (Clarinet.) I aggressively seek and listen to different kinds of music but when I sit down to write, the melodies and harmonies are spoken by trombone, clarinet, cello, etc. and I just record what I hear.

My greatest fear as a composer is to produce something boring. So my songs tend to start simple and build layers and countermelodies on top.

I check in about once a month and at that rate I've learned it's impossible to keep up with the creation going on here. Thanks, all, for your support and advice, and for taking my comments in good stride.
