    I am welcoming myself and anyone who reads this to the new JCA Blog. Don’t yet know what will go on here, but I like the idea. Hopefully, the other composers and I can talk about our compositions, and what the orchestra is up to, etc.
    Myself: last few years for me, after having been very prolific previously, have mostly been spent revising older music. We performed my six movement song cycle “The Death Of Simone Weil” in October, and revised the whole thing…as it’s a 65 minute piece of music, making even small changes ended up taking a lot of time…I removed some passages, added some, and the band, as compared when I wrote this music (fnished in 2001) has one more trumpet and a violin that I wanted to add. Plus there were various things that needed correcting or cleaning up a little.
    Still not the same thing as writing new music. There have been good life reasons why I’ve not done much new, but am hoping to be moving forward. It’s time for some new things from me!
