Well, who do you think deserves this title?

I'm talking about people who should be ranked with Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Aguado, Sor, Tchaikovsky, etc etc.

My nomination is Brian Transeau
My God, it's full of stars!
#3
I don't have a composer to nominate or let people know about, but if you don't mind me somewhat wasting a bit of space, I am interested to see who other people say and find some examples of their stuff

So I guess this is just to say nice thread idea

I second your nomination, and yea Clint Mansell deserves an honorary mention(maybe best soundtrack composer?)

I'm not quite sure. But I think an important factor that obstructs me from judging is the test of time. The greats all have withstood the test of time and still remains relevant and celebrated.

However, I think Prokofiev (slightly outdated) has the potential to be looked upon decades from now.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Exactly.. the purpose of this thread is for you to nominate those who you believe will withstand the test of time, become the greatest of the great, and set the curve for the decades to come.

At all risk of being flamed, I'd like to at least mention Steve Vai. He composed for his most recent album and I was very impressed.


Yeah, Sound Theories is fantastic.

John Corigliano is a favorite of mine, or at least from what I've heard. He's already getting on in years though. There are a couple of band composers that I really like. The band world is the only place where new compositions actually get regularly played.

Would you do it?

Aye, him to

There is also a pianist I met at my school who is godly. I asked him to play for me and we went to a practice room to play. Anyway, he started playing and he started playing what I thought was a song of his (or piece *glares at The Madcap) since we were talking about original stuff and when he finished about 5 minutes later, it turned out to be nothing but improv! I was all I then showed him Space Dementia by Muse and he figured it out in less then 10 seconds (the intro...Muse fans know).

He has the potential to wield the force with good use.
