Extractions: OME people say you can judge musicians' personalities by the instruments they play. Friends of Blair Carter McMillen, a 30-year- old concert pianist, describe him as a typically relaxed keyboard player. "The lower pitch the instrument, the more laid back the person," said Immanuel Davis, a flutist and a friend. "Oboe players are often uptight people. Brass players are beer drinkers. Blair is definitely on the low-pitch, laid-back end of the spectrum." Mr. McMillen, who graduated from Oberlin and has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Juilliard School, doesn't know a lot of people who aren't musicians. He says he's spent "the last 20 years in a practice room," working on everything from baroque music to the blues. In January 1999, he left his practice room to hear a favorite Shostakovich concerto performed at Avery Fisher Hall. During intermission, he dropped his program behind his seat and Keiko Nagata, a corporate bond analyst known as Kay and a fan of classical music, picked it up. "I looked around and there was this beautiful woman," Mr. McMillen remembered. "For me, it really was love at first sight. It took about one minute." Both were alone and fell into a conversation, which wasn't unusual for her. "Whenever I go to concerts at Lincoln Center, old ladies or old gentlemen always approach me," said Ms. Nagata, who is 32 and works in Manhattan for NLI International, an asset management subsidiary of the Nippon Life Insurance Company in Japan. "They say things like, `Do you study music?' So I was kind of used to it."

Coilmp3 Coil (2000). Commissioned by pianist blair mcmillen. Premiered by blair mcmillenand Nathan Davis at the Yellow Barn Festival in Putney, VT on July 21, 2000. http://www.hausemusic.com/httpdocs/Conservatory/ConservatoryMP3/Coil/Coilmp3.htm
Extractions: Coil Commissioned by pianist Blair McMillen. Premiered by Blair McMillen and Nathan Davis at the Yellow Barn Festival in Putney, VT on July 21, 2000. Written in Brooklyn, N.Y. and Greenville, N.C. Originally, the "coil" of the title was an incredibly long string of pitches (about 9 keyboard lengths) that I "wrapped around" the piano keyboard, providing myself with a deep well of raw material to draw from. This was discarded after I worked through many resulting possibilities and was unhappy with them. I then began a piece using symmetrical tetrachords, usually using 4-note chords which had the quality of two notes enveloping two notes snugly (like C-F enveloping C#-E); like measuring cups stacking into each other, or a magician pulling ever smaller hats out of hats. Thus, I retained my large intestine- or accordion-like approach to the pitch material. I still liked the title, so I spent some time exploring meanings of the word "coil." I discovered that Shakespeare used it in a very imaginative way. In his usage, the "coil" is a life conflict a conflict of the earth-bound body. His most famous usage is in Hamlet's most well known "to be or not to be" soliloquy. "Éwhen we shuffle off this mortal coilÉ" means, in short, to die. To Shakespeare, our days on earth seem as if our eternal soul is wrapped in mortal flesh and bones like a coil of material around a core. COIL develops continually, spirals, and grows. The life which flows through it which is also its own unique harmonic language are pitch collections, that are united by one concept: symmetry.
Extractions: Photo by Gregg Ward Bio In June of 2004, Hause will be composer in residence at the Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, N.Y., where he will present four evenings devoted to his music as performer, conductor, curator, and improviser. This is the latest in a flurry of Brooklyn-related activity, as his Trumpet Concerto was performed by the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra in February, by soloist Eric Berlin. In December 2003 he produced scenes from the third opera, Man: Biology of a Fall , at two Brooklyn venues under the auspices of a grant from the Brooklyn Arts Council. Additionally, he served as a Teaching Artist for the Brooklyn Philharmonic Education Program for two years. This summer Hause will fulfill a writing residency at the Edward Albee/William Flanagan Creative Persons Center at Montauk, Long Island. His wind ensemble arrangement of Trumpet Concerto , was premiered in April at the University of Massachusetts, and will be performed at the International Trumpet Guild International Conference in Denver on June 16. His chamber music recently received British premieres at concerts in Winchester, Salisbury and The Isle of Wight. Hause has received recognition, praise, and notoriety for his in-progress opera trilogy
