I'd like to increase my knowledge about composing. I've got a good grasp of music theory & reading music but want to explore further. I bought a work book with exercises By Russo which is great for practice but I also like to fill in some knowledge.
So anyone got any recommendations either books or online? I'm interested in some modern & minimalist stuff but anything at the moment would be great _________________
Ah, the heady days of trying to get beefytoanz out of my Marlin strat by adjusting the pickups right up to the strings.
Schoenberg's Fundamentals of Musical Composition can normally be found online. I've off to bed now but if you haven't a copy by tomorrow night I'll email you one.
Funny, I'm preparing to put together a lesson on composition for some Year 10 pupils next week and we'll be starting with minimalism on account of if being a fairly easy way of demonstrating compositional devices.
