It has been an interesting few months. I've had workshop classes in fiction and screenwriting, not to mention composition lessons and a music research group exploring Pure Data.

Some works I''ve written this semester are "Yuugen," a short story; "Means to an End," the first act of a screenplay; and "Refracting Avalon," a one-act opera for Lyric Baritone and Piano, for which I wrote the libretto (a collage of excerpts from Goethe's Faust that I translated into English) and music.

Of particular interest is a blog that I've been wanting to get off the ground, but until now I haven't found the right time to do so. Seeing as I have fewer obligations for the next month. The next week or so seems like a good time. Once the first post is up, I'll post a link here. Look forward to it!

Be careful with your ceramic burr coffee grinders. The ceramic pieces are so very fragile.


Resplendent-Dawn's Profile Picture
Traix Heiden
Artist | Student | Literature
United States
The music and literature of Traix Heiden reflect many interests, including Japanese poetry and court music. Consequently, Traix’s music often involves expanded musical gestures that manipulate time and timbre, and his literature shows the influence of narratives originating from Japan. His output includes works for small and large instrumental ensembles, choral music and keyboard music. Much of his music is directly or indirectly related to his creative literature output. An ongoing project is the composition of a large multi-movement work for wind ensemble and narrator, based on one of Traix’s original stories, a novel in progress, which is part of an umbrella project codenamed “Saralied.” This project seeks to encompass many genres of both music and literature, often intertwined and cross-pollinating. Myriad styles and genres influence his work, notably the Western and Japanese classical traditions, metal, and literature from the science fiction, fantasy, and horror traditions. Traix has studied under Warren Gooch and Mara Gibson, and is currently studying composition at Truman State University under the tutelage of Charles Gran.

You're a composer, no? Do you have an compositions to share via dA or another website?

I have an account on SoundCloud. The pieces I have on there are in a variety of styles, but only "Tarantella" is a live recording. If you want to see sheet music or some of my vocal works, I can send you an email.

Thanks for the watch. :heart: And I really liked the book The Snow Child.

You have some really nice poetry, after all. 

My only problem with that book is the third part: I though it was a little rushed and less cohesive than the previous two.
