Hey, sometime after I finish my PhD...

...would anyone be interested in being in a Fediverse Virtual Choir to sing some of my work so I can put recordings online?

Eric Whitacre did this (not on the Fediverse) and it worked super well. I... definitely don't have his resources, but I can probably film a conducting track that people can sing to.

I'm a choral composer; I like to release my music under free culture licences, usually CC by-SA.

I'm working on a PhD in contemporary sacred choral composition.

I'm neurodivergent, and I have multiple healthcrap issues. I'm a migrant. I'm Christian.

You can find my work at and fund it at

I also run Cecilia's List, a project to highlight Christian sacred music composed by people who are not men. That's very much on the back burner for the time being because of PhD stuff, though.

New rule:

You don't get to say "oh, you could sell that on Etsy/set up a Patreon/write an e-book and sell it/etc" unless you promise to buy stuff from the person you are saying it to, at a price that pays them a living wage for their time *after* material and admin costs.

I'd say "I don't make the rules" but I totally just made a rule, there, so.

A few people on my FB page asked for something like this; mandala 'templates' that they can practice filling with detail.

This pack has 8 mandala templates; four small, two medium, two large, at 'free or pay what you want' :)

I've just written a hymn tune; does anyone want to write a text for it?


In general I prefer to work with CC by-SA texts.

Hey, uh, I know my circle on here isn't very music-oriented. But in the isolation I've gotten back into engraving (typesetting) public domain music. If anybody has any particular public domain piece they'd like transcribed into a digital file with MuseScore, I'll do it for free! (provided I can find a scanned score, and it hasn't already been done well). #music ♻️🆗

today listening to Caroline Shaw's Partita for 8 Voices. It's like listening to the vocal equivalent of prepared piano...

If anyone wants to comission me to do data visualization or data analysis of some kind hmu because I kinda need cash money.

I'm serious, even though I know almost nobody needs this skill.

If you need someone to design a database application I can do that too.

OK, I'm doing this teaching thing: and (classical music) harmony! Everything from notation, basics of acoustics, intervals and scales to music history.

I'm available for 1-on-1 lessons and small groups (2-4 people). Price: Sliding scale for 1-on-1, pay-what-you-can for group sessions.

I'm in the CET/CEST time zone, fyi.

So, I have a Bandcamp page with some old recordings on it:

But my brother's band is *also* there! COVID-19 stuff is hitting him pretty hard, both of his dayjobs have dwindled to almost nothing.
