Contests as inspiration

Sometimes a contest specification resonates with a project I already want to do, or it triggers a musical thought that I want to realize right away. I’m often ready to react right away to Vox Novus’ 15-Minutes-of-Fame calls.

A deadline, a performer (or a duo or trio), a short duration — more like a sketch, rather than an elaborate composition — a challenge, a puzzle, quickly accomplished.

I’m offering these Minute Music pieces as free downloads. As of today, the collection includes Altered for horn, Double for soprano, Turbulient for clarinet, Examinate for flute, viola, doublebass.
