Solo Piano Works
Approaching Chorale style 4-part counterpoint with some modern harmonic tendencies. I'm trying to see how within the rules I can stay while breaking out of a strictly tonal context. Mixing jazz tonality ideas and a traditional approach to voice leading can yield some pretty interesting results. While it's hard to put this into a key, it cadences really nicely with some beautiful resolutions. Check out www.dantownsendmusic.com for more information
Point and Counterpoint
In response to those who are fighting for equality in this country by lending their time, effort, bodies, supplies, support, ears... Thank you for your effort. Thank you for your empathy. Thank you for taking the time to listen. Thank you for acting. This video depicts my coping mechanism of musical creation, as well as my tribute to those who are helping the effort to support the black community. All was written within the past week I am not perfect. I have made mistakes. I will do whatever I can to listen, learn, and internalize that which will promote love, unity, and equality for all people. All lives do not matter until Black. Lives. Matter.
