This is more than a performance by amazing percussionists. It's a piece by a young composer named Josh Forget, a senior at Williamson High School. During a recent concert at Hochstein School of Music and Dance, he wowed audiences with his compositions for orchestra, solo piano, and drums. "That was cool just because you didn't have any tones to work with," Josh says. "It was all ethereal, all rhythms, rhythmic themes instead of melodic themes that are recognizable. I like everything." Josh wants to compose film scores and he's already off to a great start. He's scored several films for RIT students, recorded his own cd, and written an original piece for symphony orchestra. One of his teachers and mentors is Hochstein Music History Instructor Rob Goodling. "My first imperession was how motivated he was, As a composer you really need that," Goodling says. "He can compose in so many mediums, that kind of variety is rare for an 18 year old composer." Josh has been composing since 8th grade. Here he is practicing one of his pieces with fellow musicians at Hochstein. "I usually start at the piano and I write it out in a computer program," he says. "I'll say, okay this little base line can be for the bassoon or this thing up here can be flutes or piccolos or this melodic material can be on the brass or something." The magic begins in his head and comes out through his fingers. Next year, Josh will attend SUNY Fredonia. He'd like to write for the movies! One day, you may just hear one of his scores on the big screen.
