    Many thanks for listening, Jon; and I am pleased you find
    the scores on the site useful. I like to listen to pieces
    with the score in hand, myself.

(And yes, this is a good thing!) The reason being that I wanted to give the piece the time and attention I believed it would deserve. To my (admittedly simple) mind, such music requires more attention than other stlyes. The complexity of interaction, development, etc. deserves full attention. So this morning I fired it up and I've now listened to Emergence multiple times.

    There is one thing that wraps up this piece to me. The final piano note. It took me off guard, wrapped up all of the activity prior to it and faded into the future as time does. Amazing.

    The quality of your programming is as high as your compositional skills. I have a great deal to learn by listening to your music. Thanks very much for sharing your work, it is truly inspirational!

    Kevin, I agree that much modern music asks for more care
    and attention in listening -- otherwise you miss some of the
    most interesting elements. I hope, too, though, that this
    style succeeds in being listenable in a more casual and
    relaxed manner.

    Thank you for another vote for that ending... lol. That
    was a risk; but as I grow more accustomed to it, I think it
    was the better choice.

    As for my programming skill, I again plead none, though.
    This is straight notation in Finale.

    Thanks again for listening, Kevin!

    My best,

    Louis, my friend, it is wonderful to see you back; we have
    missed you here.

    Many thanks for the kindness of your comments, Louis;
    and I look forward to hearing more music from you very
    soon, too.

    I urge you to reconsider, Jim. Our relatives wouldn't

    PS-those little utilities are most helpful!
    Welcome, Jim. I use the Zoom thinger quite a bit
    myself, especially when working on larger score in
    Finale.

    For those with an interest, there are several odds
    and ends of software utilities that musicians might
    find useful, here:

    Hi John,

    Not many people are familiar with the Huxley Variations,
    written fairly late in Stravinksky's composing career, and
    I am most certainly highly complimented that you hear
    a resemblance. Stravinsky is an abiding influence on so
    many modern composers.

    I use the contrabass clarinet in most orchestral scores,
    as standard; not only for its unique color, but also to
    provide a good deep bottom for the woodwinds.

    Thank you for listening John, and for the kind words!

    My best,

    Thanks, Graham. And no, I doubt we are alone in this.
    Especially in modern music -- where you're often working
    without a rulebook. In more traditional compositional
    landscapes, that "next note" is easier to choose because
    there's an established framework within which to make
    your choices. In more modern writing, the choices are
    broader and more numerous, and the decisions accordingly
    expand to consume more time in the writing.

    My best,

    A fitting closing comment to this thread, Joe.

    Yes... the answer is seven... lol.

    David!

    I've heard it! And I've heard it! And I've heard it! And I saw the score! Plenty of times

    I like it quite a lot.

    I didn't read the whole 12 pages (god forbid if I did that ), but I do have to comment on glimpses I saw...

    I do think that the whole work is very coherent. The form, although not obvious, is perfect! Your musical language says quite a lot to me. and the orchestration is exactly as this piece required imho.

    It's perfect!

    The recording is also very nice. Some of the percussion sound somewhat strange, but it's probably Finale at fault (Sibelius? or you use sequencer. I fail to remember that )

    Either way thank you very very much for sharing this wonderful piece of music. Much obliged to be able and post in your thread.
