I've spent the past month immersed in recordings and Logic 9 to produce this album for RPM Challenge. Free download from BandCamp or you can also find it on my SoundCloud. It's been a great project - really developed the way I approach recording sounds and how I use them, also brought my technical skills and understanding along in leaps and bounds. Looking forward to doing more work like this!

So the result of having finished my project is finally having prepped a bunch of audio files. Among them these recordings from the workshop of my experimental song-cycle-in-progress, Crossing Dartmoor. Be warned: It's very slow and a full half-hour long! You may want to fortify yourself with tea… Performers are Simon Oliver Marsh, tenor (and granite stone-tapper), and Alexandra Kremakova, piano.

Just got back from a weekend on Dartmoor, walking the moors with a huge assortment of photographic, video and audio recording equipment, collecting sights and sounds for my song cycle. Here's a tiny sneak peek!

Performance tonight! My first choral piece, Drowning Songs, is being premiered by the Trinity Laban Chamber Choir UNDER the Cutty Sark in Greenwich. They're also doing Judith Bingham's Salt in the Blood, with brass ensemble. Going to be fantastic! More details at http://caitlinrowley.com/performances/

If you're in Greenwich at lunchtime, come along to this - the singers have created an amazing performance from a huge variety of styles - classical, popular, musical numbers, folk songs, Tom Waits, Charles Ives… oh, and me! Four songs I wrote on Tuesday night to texts written by the singers themselves!

I've just finished reading this book, which I thought was excellent so thought I should share. It's about musical entrepreneurship - why and how-to - with a classical music focus and even with a whole chapter specifically on musical ways composers can earn money. Some great ideas in here and an easily digestible read too!
