I have considerable experience in editing and typesetting, not only through the production of all my own scores and parts, but also through work for other people. I’ve provided a number of materials for print and web publication including performance notes, traditional scores, graphic/text scores, performing parts, Sibelius files of traditional repertoire, as well as music examples for websites and academic publication. I use a variety of tools to proof, edit, and produce musical materials, including the following software packages:
- Sibelius (currently running version 5)
- Microsoft Word
- Adobe Acrobat
I’m always willing to develop skills with other tools and software packages as required.
Perhaps my most prized skill is being able to computer-set complex contemporary scores quickly and to a high standard. I’ve edited and/or produced materials for several contemporary composers, including Nigel Morgan, Lauren Redhead, Mic Spencer, Alistair Zaldua plus a number of student composers. I also produce scores and parts for all my own work covering a range of styles and purposes – open notation scores for installation performance and performing parts for studio session-work, for example.
At the request of Professor Rachel Cowgill I set music examples for Chapter 14 of Cowgill, Rachel, David Cooper & Clive Brown (eds.), Art and Ideology in European Opera: Essays in Honour of Julian Rushton (Woodbridge: Boydell & Brewer, 2010) – click image on left for link.
