Trajectory X

Score preview for Trajectory X
Score preview for my composition “Trajectory X”

When making the first drafts for this piece, I had in mind the last movement of “Koyunbaba” by Carlo Domeniconi with its use of multiple hammer ons and pull offs. Like that piece, “Trajectory X” uses a non standard tuning, in this case “DADGAD”, a tuning common with steel string players.
For some reason the music that emerged made me think of space travel, perhaps the “Voyager” craft in its never ending mission into the void of space and as I built the piece up I maintained this vision and endeavoured to convey it through each section.
I have written this piece in tablature rather than notation as the latter would be a total nightmare to make sense of. Thankfully there are no inner voices or any other polyphony that might show the shortcomings in such a system and the piece is in this form very easy to read.

Another gem of a video from my good friends, Ryan & Sophie, this time with an entirely different aesthetic.

Thank you for your interest in downloading sheet music - some would say scores - of my compositions!

I am making this available essentially for free, but please do consider a small donation. Writing music takes time that I could devote otherwise, e.g. to gaining my bread and making a living.


You would make me very happy if you could let me know when/where my music is performed, and a video/mp3 would just be the icing on the cake.

If you insist on "No donation, no notification, just gimme...", then please go right ahead and steal my music.

Many thanks,
Stephen
