Hello, my name is Dirk Griffin and I am an instrumental composer. As I have money, I pay to have real musicians perform my material. So, far, due to an unexpected period of unemployment, I've been unable to afford this small Luxury.
Why this name?
Upon reaching an ability to respond to specific auditory stimulus, my parents kept calling me by this name and so, I've kept it.
Do you play live?
I don't play, but I will keep you updated on any instrumental groups performances and any concerts in which my music should happen to appear.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I think we will lose many things (like the concept album), but that we will gain greatly in variety of available artists.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
My history is just that history. I'm now focused on my future.
Satie, Ives, Stravinsky, Bach, Debussey, Copeland, Bernstein, Rock and Roll, Bluegrass and folk music traditions of the world.
I haven't been everywhere, so I don't know yet. Let me get back with you on this one.
Anyone interested in sheet music for these preludes can contact me via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send PDF files of the scores to them.
