Cyfansoddwyr Cymru/Composers of Wales Newsletter 42
January 2012

From the Editor
January is often a bleak month for news, but this year we are very glad to offer our sincere congratulations to John Metcalf on his being appointed a member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2012 New Year Honours List for services to music.

Christmas with its own well-loved music is behind us now, and it is strange how quickly the New Year takes over our consciousness. There are new beginnings however, and by the end of January most music institutions have their concert programmes in full swing, and as you see further on, we have news of performances of members' music.
The season is full of promise! Please read on!

Y flwyddyn yma, fodd bynnag, fe hoffem gynnig llongyfarchiadau calon i John Metcalf ar ei etholiad i Urdd yr Ymerodraeth Brydeinig (sef MBE), yn Rhestr Anrhydeddau'r Flwyddyn Newydd (New Year's Honours List) 2012, am ei wasanaeth i gerddoriaeth..

Mae'r Nadolig heibio nawr, ynghyd â'i mor gerddoriaeth annwyl i bawb, a rhyfedd yw meddwl mor sydyn y try ein meddyliau ymlaen at y Flwyddyn Newydd. Mae cymaint yn cychwyn o'r newydd – erbyn diwedd Ionawr mae ymron pob rhaglen cyngerdd wedi ail-gychwyn. Wrth daro golwg ymlaen fe welwch bydd sawl perfformiad o waith ein haelodau yn y dyfodol agos.

Sonic Arts Network

The Case for Reviving the Sonic Arts Network in the UK

1.Challenging the status quo of music culture by raising and broadening the cultural bar, thereby engaging and recognising the avant-garde as a valued, and thereby justified, alternative participant and contributor to the social, educational, intellectual cultural and musical health and wellbeing of society in its own right.

2.Supporting alternative opportunities for engaging creative changes with imaginative challenges of digital technology.

3.Recognising the cultural value of alternative genre including minorities for sustaining and maintaining a viable and dynamic cultural environment.

4.Recognising the cultural, intellectual and social consequences of a an inclusive economic-led mindset of a narrowing commercially based and subsidised culture

5.Provision of opportunities for cultural articulation and choice available now and in the future from new sonic instruments and repertoire.

6.Developing progressive attitudes and experience of all electronic music genre about the purpose and function of cultural perceptions and strategies for new intelligent listening audiences.

7.Widening and raising cultural educational challenge from technological advance by embracing the full range of new sound based music hardware/software for sound, sound and image/design genre.

8.Supporting new opportunities by providing electronic music composers and sound artists with alternatives from pervasive/invasive over-subscribed the status quo.

9.Responding acoustically, environmentally and aesthetically by interfacing the shrinking world view with the expansive universal world of sound.

10. Challenging regressive public attitudes to sonic art music by a sustained program of listening with new ears, starting in the kindergarten.

Sonic Arts Network

Rhesymau dros adnewyddu'r Sonic Arts Network yn y DU

Cychwynnodd y Sonic Arts Network ym 1979 yn Llundain. Y bwriad oedd hyrwyddo recordiadau o waith yr aelodau mewn gwyliau cerdd a chyngherddau, yma yn y DU a thramor. Ac hefyd i gynnal gwyl gerdd f.ynyddol unai yn Llundain, neu yn theatr sain Prifysgol Birmingham, o'r enw BEAST (sef Birmingham Electroacoustic Sound Theatre). Adeilad arbennig oedd hwn, adeiladwyd at y pwrpas gydag uchelseinydd aml-sianel I berfformio cerddoriaeth acwsmatig (a dedicated purpose build location as a multi-channel/loudspeaker diffusion venue of acousmatic music).

Pwrpas Sonic Arts Network [SAN] oedd hyrwyddo pob cerddoriaeth electronig, boed electroacwstig, acwsmatig, electronics byw neu gyfryngau cymysg (mixed media) ar gyfer arddangosfeydd ayyb. 'Roedd ganddynt gylchgrawn rheolaidd a chylchlythyr, a blog ar-lein o'r enw Diffusions.

Diflannodd SAN fel canlyniad sefydlu Sound and Music yn Llundain tua phum mlynedd yn ôl. (Mae fy aelodaeth i yn dyddio o 1981.)

Os am ei atgyfodi, rhaid dilyn y llwybr a ganlyn:

Trwy herio y byd cerddorol sydd ohonni heddiw drwy ehangu ei gynnwys, fel ei fod yn amgyffred ac yn cyfiawnhau'r avant-garde fel aelod gwerthfawr o'n cymdeithas, sy'n cael ei dderbyn ac yn cyfrannu tuag at ein bywyd cymdeithasol, ac ym myd ein deall a'n haddysg.
Trwy ymgymryd â chyfleusterau amgen i'n galluogi i ymateb i newidiadau creadigol drwy ddefnyddio technoleg ddigidol.

Trwy gydnabod gwerth diwylliannol maesydd amgen, a hynny gan gynnwys lleiafrifoedd, er mwyn creu a chadw amgylchfyd meddyliol byw.

Trwy gydnabod canlyniadau diwylliannol, meddyliol a chymdeithasol cul-feddwl economaidd a fo'n glynu wrth werthoedd masnachol yn unig.

Trwy gynnig cyfle i ni glywed fel pe tae leisiau newydd, nawr ac yn y dyfodol, yn perthyn I offerynnau a repertoire sonig newydd.

Trwy hybu gwerthfawrogiad o'r iaith gerddorol electronig, a thrwy ddeall pwrpas a gweithrediad agweddau meddwl gwahannol ddiwylliannau, er mwyn creu cynulleidfaoedd a fyddai'n deall ac yn gwrando.

Trwy ehangu defnydd technoleg mewn addysg, gan ddefnyddio holl adnoddau caledwedd a meddalwedd cerdd i gynhyrchu sain a delwedd yn y dull newydd.

Trwy fynnu defnyddio holl amrywiaeth y caledwedd a'r meddalwedd hwn i gynhyrchu sain, delwedd a dyluniad.

Trwy ddarparu cyfansoddwyr a pherfformwyr ym maes cerddoriaeth electronig a all gynnig dewis arall heblaw cynnigion cyfarwydd y byd sydd ohonni heddiw.

Trwy ymateb yn acwstig, yn amgylcheddol ac yn esthetig drwy fynnu dod â'r cul-feddwl cyfoes wyneb yn wyneb â byd mawr cyfoethog cyfanfyd sain.

Trwy herio gelyniaeth y cyhoedd tuag at gerddoriaeth sonig, trwy ddatblygu rhaglen o wrando gyda chlustiau newydd, gan gychwyn yn y dosbarth babanod.

News

from Richard Williams

My fanfare for the Colchester “Firstsite' Centre was selected (one of eight) for live performance at the opening of the art gallery.
The 8 selected fanfares were played on Dec.17th, one on each hour starting at 10 am. They were promised to be posted on u-tube afterwards. It would be interesting to know at what point a fanfare becomes a piece of music. The competition asked for up to 2 minutes but mine is only about half a minute. I had previously entered this very fanfare in the National Eisteddfod where it was criticised for being too short.

from Andrew Powell

Firstly, I was very honoured to be proposed (by Enid Luff), and elected, as the new Chairman of CC/CW, and look forward to working with you all to try to improve the lot of composers.
I have just been back in Abbey Road Studios (on 21st December) with the Philharmonia Orchestra and Elin Manahan Thomas, recording various new works, some co-written with Adrian Munsey, and one with Menna Elfyn - the "Hwiangerdd" from the cantata which Menna and I co-wrote last year - a commission funded by the Arts Council of Wales & PRS Foundation - "Y Dyn Unig", based on the story of "Red Lady of Paviland."
I have also finally finished the piece I have been writing for contra-bassoon and live electronics for my old friend and colleague from the live electronics group "Intermodulation".

from Enid Luff

My orchestral piece At Crack of Winter will be played by the Academic Orchestra of the University of Würzburg, Germany. There will be two performances, one on Feb. 2nd at Bad Kissingen, and the second on Feb. 12th at the Hochschule für Musik, Würzburg. The conductor will be Markus Popp.

I am also excited that a CD of my music, for both solo piano and chamber group, which was recorded at the Ty Cerdd studio in the autumn of 2010, will soon be into production, courtesy of Ty Cerdd. More news to follow - or, to coin a phrase, watch this space!

from Brian Noyes

My orchestral piece Shadows of Memory will be rehearsed by the BBC NOW at the Welsh Composers' Showcase at Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff Bay, on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd February 2012.

Brian sends the following programme note:
Shadows of Memory uses music from a larger composition which is based upon the prose text, The Journey by John Clare, which itself forms the central act of a proposed chamber opera. This text is dynamic, but crucially exposes the poet’s increasing tiredness, deteriorating mental capacities, and his tense homecoming, so I set myself the compositional task of writing an instrumental piece, which gradually slowed down, yet retained it's momentum and climactic effect.
Shadows of Memory - uses the same music: a repeated note/chord figure; a fanfare figure; a scalic motif (g# a b c); and a sforzando tutti chord which reappears, sometimes suddenly, sometimes as part of the narrative, marking the slowing process, and acting like the black lines in a Mondrian painting, demarcating the sections but being integral to the compositional process. The music is, then, a distant shadow of Clare's poignant text, but may be perceived as the result of my memory, of my previous composition, a memory of another (Clare's) memory, a shadow of a memory.

from Hilary Tann

Shakkei, the oboe concerto premiered at the 2008 Presteigne Festival, has been selected for the North American Saxophone Alliance 2012 Biennial Conference in Tempe, Arizona, March 15. Susan Fancher will be the soprano saxophone soloist. Two new works will be premiered in March: "Contemplations 8, 9" (SSA) by Cappella Clausura, March 17, and "Between Sunsets" (soprano, piano), a song cycle based on texts by E. E. Cummings, by the Beaudette-Strempel Duo, in an all-Tann concert on March 29, as part of the 2012 Eastman School of Music Festival of Women in Music, USA.

from Gillian Stevens

Dylan Fowler and I are working on a project with 3 story tellers (Ben Haggerty, Pomme Clayton and Hugh Lupton) on Grimm's fairy tales, composing, improvising and arranging music for performances in 2012.
I have funding from Wales Arts International to travel to Finland for a recording of my kantele concerto in Haapavesi next Autumn.

Nawfed Gystadleuaeth Gyfansoddi Ryngwladol "Citta' di Udine" (2012)

Mae rheolau ac amodau'r gystadleuaeth hon ar gael 'nawr. Am ragor o wybodaeth, ewch i: 
http://www.taukay.it/en/index.html
Dyddiad cau: Mawrth 31, 2012. Am ragor o wybodaeth, e-bostiwch: competition@taukay.it

oddiwrth Richard Williams
Cafodd fy ffanffar ar gyfer y gystadleuaeth yn y Firstsite Gallery yn Colchester ei ddewis i'w berfformio yn y seremoni agoriadol.

Chwarewyd yr wyth ffanffar dewisiedig ar Ragfyr 17, un bob awr, gan gychwyn am ddeg y bore. Fe fyddai'n ddiddorol gwybod pryd yn union mae ffanffar yn troi'n ddarn o gerddoriaeth. Gofynnai amodau'r gystadleuaeth am ddim mwy na dau funud – dim ond hanner munud oedd hyd fy ffanffar i. 'Roeddwn eisoes wedi ei yrru i mewn i gystadleuaeth yn yr Eisteddfod Genedlaethol, ond cafodd ei feirniadu am fod yn rhy fyr.

oddiwrth Andrew Powell

Yn gyntaf, derbyniais anrhydedd fawr iawn trwy gael fy enwebu (gan Enid Luff), a'm hethol, yn Llywydd newydd Cyfansoddwyr Cymru. ' rwy'n edrych ymlaen at weithio gyda chwi oll i geisio gwella byd cyfansoddwyr.

Bum yn ôl yn ddiweddar yn yr Abbey Road Studios (ar Ragfyr 21) gyda'r Philharmonia Orchestra ac Elin Manahan Thomas, yn recordio rhai darnau newydd - rhai a gyfansoddwyd ar y cyd gydag Adrian Munsey, ac un gyda Menna Elfyn, sef yr "Hwiangerdd" o'r Gantata a gyfansoddodd Menna a minnau ar y cyd y flwyddyn ddiwethaf. Comisiwn oedd hwn gan Gyngor Celfyddydau Cymru a'r PRS Foundation, sef "Y Dyn Unig", wedi ei seilio ar hanes dynes goch Paviland: “the Red Lady of Paviland."

Llwyddais hefyd i orffen y darn fum i'n ei gyfansoddi i faswn dwbl ac electroneg fyw, i'm hen gyfaill a chyd-weithiwr o'r grwp electroneg "Intermodulation".

oddiwrth Enid Luff

Fe chwareuir fy narn cerddorfaol At Crack of Winter ym mis Chwefror gan Gerddorfa Academig Prifysgol Würzburg, yn yr Almaen. Bydd dau berfformiad, un ar Chwefror 2 yn Bad Kissingen, a'r ail ar Chwefror 12 yn yr Hochschule für Musik yn Würzburg, dan arweiniad Markus Popp.

Ar hyn o bryd 'rwy'n cyfansoddi darn ar gyfer yr grwp Still Life with Guitar (ffliwt, fiola,a gitar), o'r enw Journey.

Mae'n bleser hefyd cael cyhoeddi y bydd CD o'm cerddoriaeth, i biano ac i grwp siambr, yn ymddangos yn fuan dan nawdd Ty Cerdd. Recordiwyd hwn yn stiwdio Ty Cerdd yn ystod hydref 2010. Rhagor o wybodaeth gyda hyn!

oddiwrth Brian Noyes

Bydd fy narn cerddorfaol Shadows of Memory i'w glywed yn ystod rihyrsal gyhoeddus Cerddorfa Genedlaethol Gymreig y BBC, dydd Mercher a dydd Iau Chwefror 1 a 2, 2012, yn y Ganolfan Mileniwm, Bae Caerdydd. Bydd cyfansoddwyr cyfoes eraill ar y rhaglen hefyd - gweler www.bbc.co.uk/orchestras/bbcnow.

Nodyn am Shadows of Memory:
Mae'r darn hwn yn defnyddio cerddoriaeth oedd yn rhan o ddarn blaenorol, mwy sylweddol, seiliedig ar destun rhyddieithol John Clare, The Journey (hwnnw hefyd yn ran o opera siambr arfaethiedig). Testun llawn bywyd yw hwn, ac eto'n cyfleu blinder corff a meddwl y bardd, a'i ddychweliad prudd tuag adref. Ceisiais felly, fel cyfansoddwr, greu darn offerynnol oedd yn arafu'n gyson, ac eto'n cadw ei hwb ymlaen, ac yn gyrru am ei nod.
Mae patrwm tebyg i'w weld yn Shadows of Memory – defnyddia'r un gerddoriaeth fwy nag unwaith, gan ail-adrodd alaw a chytgord, neu ffanffar, neu ran o raddfa (g# a b c); a chord sforzando tutti gaiff ei ail-adrodd dro ar ôl tro, weithiau'n sydyn, weithiau fel rhan o'r stori, gan olrhain y broses o arafu. Mae'n cyferbynu i'r llinellau duon yn narluniau Mondrian, yn gwahannu'r rhaniadau, ac eto'n rhan anhepgor o'r broses o greu'r darn. Dyna felly yw'r gerddoriaeth hon, cysgod o destun pwerus John Clare, yn tarddu o'm cof innau, yn y darn gyfansoddais gynt, atgof o atgof arall o eiddo John Clare – cysgod atgof, The Shadow of a Memory.

oddiwrth Hilary Tann

Cafodd Shakkei, y consierto i obo gafodd ei berfformiad cyntaf yng Ngwyl Llanandras yn 2008, ei ddewis ar gyfer cynhadledd ddwyflynyddol 2012 y North American Saxophone Alliance yn Tempe, Arizona, ar Mawrth 15. Yr unawdydd ar y soprano sacsoffon fydd Susan Fancher. Bydd dau ddarn newydd yn cael eu perfformiad cyntaf ym mis Mawrth: "Contemplations 8, 9" (SSA) gan Cappella Clausura, Mawrth 17, a "Between Sunsets" (soprano a phiano), cylch o ganeuon, y geiriau gan E. E. Cummings, gan y Beaudette-Strempel Duo, mewn cyngerdd o'm cerddoriaeth i yn unig ar Fawrth 29. Bydd hwn yn rhan o Wyl Merched mewn Cerddoriaeth 2012, USA, gan yr Eastman School of Music.
