    Daijana WallaceShades
    performed by Kivie Cahn-Lipman (cello)



    My name is Daijana Wallace (day-on-a, like “spending a day on a beach”) and I’m a composer. My writing is inspired by my own thoughts and feelings, getting to write for friends and colleagues, or a combination of the two. I like to think of some of my compositions as a journal—with “entries” ranging from playful thoughts about my upstairs neighbor to thoughts on grief concerning the death of my father—allowing the audience to step into my shoes for a period of time. An aspect of the compositional process that I thoroughly enjoy (and feel gives that extra umph, nuance, personality, or pizzazz to my music) is getting the opportunity to work with and receive feedback from performers. A performer’s expertise, knowledge, and presence is a way my work can live, breathe, and have the ability to tell stories. I’ve always valued the idea of community and even though composition can be thought of as a solitary activity (and I treat it as such sometimes), working with and learning from musicians satisfies that need to be a part of something bigger than myself.

    I’ll be starting the second year of my Masters in Music Composition at Michigan State University this fall (Go Green!) under Dr. David Biedenbender. After my time in Michigan I look forward to settling back into and being based in Wichita, KS.

    A lot to enjoy in this solo cello work: the gestures mix mild dissonance with some beautiful consonance, and harmonic movement that gradually expands the sound spectrum.

    A new composer for me - and a fascinating string quartet posted on YT by the Bozzini Quartet. Worth a listen.

    Absolute brilliance. What an amazing atmosphere of a mysterious, misty rainforest he conjures up. At moments I even heard some actual rainforest ambience coming from those flutes! I particularly love those shimmery, ethereal parts too.

    Just missed the 21st century by two years - but that's okay. It's interesting enough to avoid disqualification on a technicality.

    Lilijana MatičevskaAbolish the Police (2019)
    performance, improvisations, & recording by Ryan Williams (garklein recorder)



    The garklein recorder in C, also known as the sopranissimo recorder or piccolo recorder, is the smallest size of the recorder family. Its range is C6–A7 (C8). The name garklein is German for "quite small", and is also sometimes used to describe the sopranino in G.

    Virtuosic performance of this amazing solo piece. I am not a fan of political compositions but listening to this was ennobling, not because of the "message" but because of the musicianship and creativity demonstrated.

    Alan Theisen - La Distanza Della Luna for Flute and Alto Saxophone (2018)



    Misty Theisen, flute
    Marc Ballard, saxophone

    Program Note: La Distanza Della Luna (2018) for flute and alto saxophone is based on the short story of the same name by Italo Calvino. Throughout the course of the piece the two instrumentalists gradually physically separate on stage, mirroring the central premise of Calvino's fable. The world premiere was given by the commissioning duo - Colshire Winds (Steve Carmichael and Karen Judkins) - at the 2018 North American Saxophone Alliance Biennial Conference at University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music on March 11, 2018.

    I have not participated in this thread until now mostly due to lack of time. Partly there are way too many works to sample (and that's a good thing).

    I appreciate SanAntone starting the thread and continuing to post selections here. I also thank others who have contributed. The music here is widely varied. Some I like quite a bit and some I don't find interesting or enjoyable.

    On this page I loved The Lick Quartet. I think it's an great example of fun, interesting music that many here on TC could easily enjoy even though composed only a couple of years ago. I also enjoyed Daijana Wallace's Shades. I love the cello, and there were some lovely passages coupled with interesting harmonies. I adored Beeftink's "Birds". Gorgeous music, and I'm usually not much of a fan of flute music.

    When I started to listen to Strieder's "obscured light", I was unmoved by the music. As I continued, I found the sounds more interesting as they seemed to morph from one blend to another. The links in the post don't seem to work (page not found).
