aboutJon Southwood is a composer and performer in Eastern Iowa. He studied Voice and Classical Guitar performance during his undergraduate years and then received a Master of Arts degree from the University of Iowa in Composition. During his graduate school years, Jon was on the Executive Committee of the Society of Composers, Inc.

Jon credits his discovery of the Loopers Delight and CT-Collective with pulling him out of a post-graduate hiatus from music. Since his participation on CT-Bluezette, he has contributed to the CT-Acoustic, CT-Film, and CT-Twelvetone Dance projects.

In 2004, he became co-chair of the Iowa Composers Forum, an organization dedicated to the promotion of new music of all genres by Iowa composers.

He currently splits his time between a day job performing graphic design for the educational assessment industry, raising a three-month-old daughter, composing modern classical music for various ensembles, writing for and performing with the Celtic folk band Wylde Nept, freelance music engraving, guiding the Iowa Composers Forum, and learning the Chapman Stick.

Yume is a score to a scene that would appear in a biopic for the poet
Matsuo Basho. In his last hours, he lays in bed, ill. Around him are
gathered his disciples, to whom he gifts his final poem. He recites
the 17 syllable poem and shortly afterward dies. The poem (in loose
english translation) reads:

On a journey, fallen ill
and over withered fields
dreams go wandering still

(The japanese is: Tabi ni yande/yume wa kareno wo/kakemeguru)

  Beautiful score...very modern and moody...pensive... sometimes, with some of the more dissonant tone clusters, conveying uncertainty or lack of resolution....perhaps associated with being on one's deathbed...just my personal emotive reaction. Well done.

  Delightfully dark and obscure....piano strings, right? (can't tell if its a grand or upright, however). This really brings out the weird 50's sci-fi movie in me.....I have about 70 of them, and this would make an excellent soundtrack replacement for some. Well done! Send me more like this if you have it.
