About Douglas Boyce

I am writing to you because you know my music and you know my love of connecting the traditions of the Renaissance and the Early Modern with the contemporary. I also have a fascination with rhythms and textures that shift between order, fragmentation, elegance and ferocity. But again, you know this.

What you may not know is: over the last year I have enjoyed some signifant success with the release of a portrait CD on New Focus Recordings, with performances by counter)induction, Trio Cavatina and the Aeolus Quartet.

  • Colin Clarke in Fanfare described the compositions as "vastly stimulating on all levels, whether intellectual or emotional."
  • Allan J. Cronin of New Music Buff called the work "seriously engaging and masterfully developed music."
  • Chris Spector in Midwest Record Review wrote this: "Wild stuff you don’t have to be a Sunday afternoon egghead to enjoy or penetrate."

So, the question is, "what's next"?

To enhance the opportunities for me to grow my body of work over the next year, I have signed with Patreon, which is a crowdfunding membership platform based in the United States that provides ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons".

In other words, you may support me and my work through Patreon—at any level comfortable for you—and for that generous support you'll get regular news blasts on upcoming events, be able to hear and see live and studio performances and videos of my music, access digital scores and my writings on the pieces, and receive links to recordings of me talking about the pieces and their creation with friends and collaborators.

And if you’re terribly bold and dramatically generous, you can even commission new works.

There is no better way of knowing 'what's next' as being part of its creation.

So, follow the link to Patreon, explore recent examples of my work, choose from among the tiers of support and become a patron of my work.

Thank you!
