Big thanks to Richard Meek for recording the bassoon parts for my compositions Alas! and What It Is, two of my favorite pieces.  Richard is an outstanding musician and has always supported new music.

The Spice of Life

Nov 28, 2017 - Posted by stuarthinds

I see that it has been a while since my last post, but it’s not for lack of news, just not very interesting news. Since completing my latest book, “Making Music with Overtone Singing,” I have been busy with a wide variety of busy work and back burner tasks that have been waiting for my attention. It has actually been quite enjoyable. I really enjoy working in my new shed and being there probably increases my production. Good things are on the way.

Anyway, I’ll try to do better, and keep following me on Facebook as well as my website. Thanks!

A Lot To Do

Oct 31, 2016 - Posted by stuarthinds

My special concert with Indian singer Nanda Banerjee was a great success!  Really enjoyed making music with some of my favorite musicians: Hsin-Jung Tsai, Paul English, Max Dyer, Patrick Moore and new friend Brandon Bell.

Now I am working on some projects that have been on the back burner for a while:  finishing my new book of pieces for overtone singing with steady fundamental and recording all the pieces, composing a new piece for Spektrum, and working on a possible new album.  Lots to do!

Successful Performance at IDRS

Jul 20, 2016 - Posted by stuarthinds

My performance at the International Double Reed Society convention was a great success!  I composed a new piece for overtone singing and bassoon for Richard Meek which we premiered at the 2016 convention at Columbus State University.  The piece was a big hit and it was nice to spend some time with Richard, one of the finest musicians I know.

New Recording on Sound Clips Page

May 25, 2016 - Posted by stuarthinds

I have added a new recording to the playlist on my website.  Only a Night is a song with simple piano accompaniment combining overtone singing and regular singing with lyrics.  The music is based on Raga Yaman, an evening rag, that complements the imagery in the lyrics.  Enjoy!
