Rod has pass away - he will be missed.
Welcome to INITIUM. We specialize in lesser known and long neglected music of the mid-18th century. Insofar as possible we work from original sources (manuscripts).

------> A SOUND OF HISTORY
IN THE ARCHAEOLOGY SECTION HERE, I TRY TO SHOW THE USE OF MUSIC ARCHAEOLOGY IN RELATION TO EACH OF MY PUBLISHED CD MIX DISCS. MUSIC ARCHAEOLOGY IS THE COMPLETE THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING AND PERFORMANCE OF A MMUSIC MANUSCRIPT AND IT'S FIRST PERFORMANCE - FROM DISCOVERY TO TODAYS PRODUCTION OF A RECORDED DISC OF MUSIC. I HOPE TO SHOW THE VALUE OF THE USE OF A COMPUTER AND SYNTHESIZERS. VIRTUAL MUSIC, IS AN INDISPENSABLE MUSIC TECHNIQUE LEADING TO A PERFORMANCE OF UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPTS AS THE COMPOSER INTENDED.
THIS OFFERS US THE TRUE SOUNDS OF THE PAST SO THAT WE CAN BETTER PERFORM WORKS NOW - A WAY OF HEARING AND PERFORMING MUSIC - A SOUND OF HISTORY.
IMAGINATIVE MINDS WILL SOON CATCH ON TO THE NEW CONCEPT AND HOPEFULLY HELP US ENJOY MORE OF THE MUSIC FROM OUR HERITAGE. I PERSONALLY HAVE CHOSEN THE 18TH CENTURY - OUR UNKNOWN MUSIC HERITAGE FROM CENTRAL EUROPE - A GREAT AMERICAN HERITAGE 1715 TO 1791.
CD MIX DISCS ARE AVAILABLE: firstname.lastname@example.org
