    After a Summer hiatus, Dennis returns for a conversation with composers Elizabeth Alexander and J. David Moore, two of the founding members of the Independent Music Publishers Cooperative, a group of eight composer-publishers working together to market and distribute their music. The cooperative’s shared website provides a central hub where directors and performers can browse the group’s individual catalogs simultaneously, and serves as a guide to the composers’ best work.

    MPP 060: REBROADCAST David & Matthew Maslanka on Forging Your Own Path

    MPP 060: REBROADCAST David & Matthew Maslanka on Forging Your Own Path

    Originally aired 8/15/2017

    In case you haven’t yet heard the news, composer David Maslanka passed away last week on August 6 after a brief battle with cancer. David, along with his son Matthew, was a guest on the show back in January for Episode #38.

    Reading other composers’ and performers’ reminiscences of him online, it’s impossible to overlook the impact he’s had in our corner of the world and beyond. From his simple exhortation for composers to Just Show Up when it comes to writing every day, to his acknowledgement about our craft that “nothing about what we do is convenient,” he has been a source of encouragement and inspiration for many composers over the decades.

    So this week, in honor of his memory, I’m rebroadcasting episode 38 on Forging Your Own Path with David Maslanka.
