It's a given that there's a lot of symphonic compositions going on here with GPO. However, I'd like to get a sense of what other styles of music you compose, with or without GPO. For instance, I'm sure there's folks out there who spend time in the studio with GPO and then go out to play live gigs in bar bands, etc.
I'll throw mine out first. Although I'm not a strong symphonic composer, I initially got GPO with the intent of doing some film work in the future (if I ever get caught up with my company and reclaim my spare time!). Additionally, I'm a huge fan of the big band swing music of the 40s, ala Benny Goodman, Glen Miller, etc., and will definitely be playing around with JABB in that regard.
Probably my primary direction for many years was rock & roll (although that's a pretty broad label), both in bands and in the studio. Since I've been in Atlanta, though, I've been writing a lot more on acoustic guitar, still rock / pop oriented stuff. Orchestral instrumentation still comes into play with some of this. I mean, if the Who can include French horns, I figure there's no rules in rock.
Again, time permitting, I'd like to get around to composing what I guess you'd call New Age instrumental music, which is what I listen to when I take the phones off the hook on Sundays.
Although my taste in music is much more diverse than this, these are the things that clamor for my attention when I'm in the studio or want to play live gigs. What about the rest of you? We know you do some wonderful symphonic compositions. What else do you do?
