I have completed another album of music, predominantly electronic and poem music. Head over to the ‘Works’ page to download Most Afternoons.

As one can tell from the lack of updates around here, I have not been able to update the site for a while. I took a much needed sabbatical from music in 2012 to pursue other interests, but I am now writing again. 

I’ve just moved to Australia so I’m not sure how frequently I’ll be able to update this site in the coming months. Fortunately I now have a blog which will be updated quite frequently.

I have finally got round to putting together a small collection of my poetry which one can find on the Writings page. I expect to focus more on poetry than composition in the next few fragmentary months.

The inappropriately titled Keyboard Sonata now has an mp3 to accompany it on the works page.

Apologies for the long delay, I’ve been finishing my MA for the past few months and writing a lot of music. I’m going to take a break from composing for a few years now. Sebastian Berwick is playing one of these new pieces on October 27th, for those who are near Huddersfield, more details on the Performances page.

Lots of updates on the Works page: I’ve finally uploaded a video of the ‘bi-opera’ Clive Tyldesley: The Unofficial Biography in Sound written in 2010. There are also some recordings and scores of pieces I’ve finished over the past 6 months or have been recently performed.

The biggest news is that I’ve finished an album of tape pieces composed between June 2009 and June 2011, imaginatively called Tape Pieces. This can be downloaded for free from the ‘Works’ page. A video of She Gods of the Shark Reef is also now available.

I’ve added a page with some of my essays after several people have requested them. The topics range from rap music to Adorno to Richard Ayers. Other projects on microtonality, Plato and totalitarianism and ‘Moment Form’ may follow.

One new piece of mine and some recordings of Palimsest ensemble have been uploaded onto the brand new page, ‘Ensembles’. 

The mp3 and score for ‘a boy for you, a girl for me’, as well as the score for I get a Kick Out of You, are up on the works page. At the moment I’m working on no less than six pieces(!) which are at varying stages of completion, but will all be complete by the summer.

I’ve been very busy working on a few new pieces and settling into north-east england. As a result I still haven’t uploaded everything but there are a few more mp3s, a video of Boulez on the Tube on the Works page and even a new picture on the Biography page.

I’ve uploaded a few more mp3 files and fixed a few bugs. I’ll hopefully have the rest of my scores, mp3s and videos up by the end of the month. In other news: would you like an email address @jackcoleman.co.uk? Add a bit of prestige to your business cards. It’s like a more exclusive hotmail. Email me if you’re interested.

Score for Boulez on the Tube and an mp3 of Caruso Fridge Magnet uploaded to the ‘Works’ section. I will work on uploading the rest of the pieces in the coming weeks.

I have uploaded the site! Scores, mp3s and videos will follow.
