Since 8 years I’m composing orchestral works. I find the language of a lot of today’s new music lacking real depth, beauty, communication and craftmanship. Because of this I started to compose, what I would call realistic music, based on intuitive processes in the tonal language. “The whole intellectual “comtemporary”music, which developed out of the chaos after two worldwars, has had its time in my opinion. Since there is no real development in modern composing, I feel it is time to go to a renaissance and to take the responsibility to dare touch peoples emotions again”
In the years past Nick Woud composed music for radio and television [opening music for the 3rd Dutch TV net] and for Timpani, Percussion and Brassinstruments. The first composing has been done, stimulated by his friend Ben van Dijk, former bass trombone player of the RFO, now with the Rotterdam Phil.
Most of my music will be published on:
