Still jamming on Back From The Grave comps lately.
I've been trying to figure out how to write parts for harp & viola,
not "out there" parts but easier to read, so I've listened to Bax,
Villa Lobos, Stravinsky (elegie), Hindemith, some Alice Coltrane,
lots of Ravel, Poulenc & watched a few videos of viola recital pieces.
The more experimental Villa Lobos stuff for larger chamber groups
is SO SO good. What a great bunch of music.
I've also been trying to write marches like Eisler, so listening to a
lot of overwrought, not always effective political marches.
