|I owe you, and God,
a big THANKS!
First, for bearing with me since I started moving in (well over a year now).
Second, for your invaluable support, whether by re-visiting this page, positively ranking it, or for your e-mail. You made me feel like a really useful person. Thanks, again.
I'm still committed to my promise that, as this page continues to really take shape, you'll like to honour me with your visits. Plenty of times!
Who I amMy name is Hosam Adeeb Nashed, I live in Egypt (believe it or not, I'm Egyptian). I'm a composer, although I work as a computer programmer. Actually, I'm aTechnical Coordinator, but that's too big a title, isn't it.
What You Can Find Here... (so far, that is!!)
- Ever wondered whatever happened to the Music of the Pharaohs? Here's a place to start...
- Or about our own modal system? Start with my introductory page: Painting With Scales.
- Tips on how to play the Block Flute (otherwise known as the Recorder) using our scales, i.e. including Quarter-Tones (the interval is in fact three-quarters of a tone), so all of you can try out those scales I'm going to tell you about.
- You don't know much, or anything, about those Quarter-Tones? Ever wondered about their historical origins? I have a theory of my own on the subject!
- A Tribute to the late maestro Aziz El-Shawan (pronounce: a-ZEEZ esh-shaou-WAN), written by my American friend Lawrence David Moon (Composer and published Poet and Novelist).
- My is my Discussions Log Book, which will always be regularly updated. So, check every so often. Think of is as a FAQ, really.
What I Plan To DoAlthough I really can't say I'm modest, I don't intend to talk much about myself. There's not much to tell, really! Instead, over the time, as this page grows, I'm going to inform you on:-
- Further details about our modal system: scales, rhythms, instruments. Especially my favourite one, the Egyptian Flute.
- More about my great master, El-Shawan. His life, style and works.
Meanwhile...Wish me luck with this dynamic page of mine.
|And... I'll need your feed back. Positive or ... otherwise.|
