Seeadot Music Publishing

Seeadot Music Publishing Discover your new obsession. Seeadot music-the best choral music you've never heard.

See-A-Dot music publishing was created by choral conductors for choral conductors. We know it's hard to find great new choral music, and can take hours searching through huge catalogs for a few gems worth performing. We thought we could make it easier by making sure that each piece in our catalog is worthy of a great performance. The catalog is high curated and focused on music for adult choirs, especially colleges and universities, though there are gems for community choirs, professionals, and strong high school ensembles. We believe it's the piece that matters most, not the composer or the group that first performed it. We want to help new, up and coming composers gain the exposure they need to get the recognition they deserve. We’ve run into too many wonderful pieces that will never see life after a first performance, and we think that’s a tragedy. We want to help get this music and these composers out into the world for the enjoyment of all.

Mission: To provide easy access to high quality contemporary choral music; to encourage the creation of new works; and to help up and coming composers to advance in their careers.

Ceremonial Burning, by Nilo Alcala

NOW AVAILABLE AT SEEADOT: We are happy to announce that Nilo Alcala's CEREMONIAL BURNING is now available at seeadot.com!

Mila, Great Sorcerer – PROTOTYPE

We are incredibly proud of Andrea Clearfield, as she just premiered her latest opera, MILA, GREAT SORCEROR, at the PROTOTYPE Festival in New York this past weekend! We hope MILA continues to develop and will receive a proper premiere in the near future!

About MILA, GREAT SORCEROR:

“Folk hero, singer, and spiritual teacher, Milarepa has been venerated for one thousand years. But as a child, directed by his mother, he wields black magic against the aunt and uncle that stole his inheritance, and destroys his entire village. His remorse sends him on a life journey from mass murder to enlightenment. Set to lush orchestration melding Eastern and Western sounds, his transformation and redemption into the most revered teacher of Tibetan Buddhism offer hope and spiritual wayfinding to all who regret acts of consequence and seek higher ground. ”

Wow, we hit 600 likes over the weekend! It feels like yesterday that we hit 500 (it was actually about a year ago, but okay). And we are so glad that we have 600 people who care about new, exciting choral and vocal music.

I wonder when we'll get to 700? 🙃

Hymn to Aethon, by Fahad Siadat

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🎉🎉🎉

We are super excited for 2019, as we have numerous pieces coming down the pipeline! Such excitement calls for an equally exciting piece to showcase, such as Fahad Siadat's HYMN TO AETHON.

Cinematic and epic, this wordless piece has a heavy metal vibe to it. The piece is an exploration of timbres for the voice that combines minimalist elements with droning harmonies and syncopated rhythms. It is a one of a kind experience for adventurous choirs. It’s a great way to get ‘out of the box’ and experiment with what the voice’s capabilities while still thrilling your audience.

12/21/2018

From all of us at See-A-Dot, we would like to wish you and yours a happy and safe holiday. We'll be back in 2019 with more pieces, more composers to feature, and some fun developments in store!

Stabat Mater, by Jonathan David

Tis the holiday season, which means lots of pieces in Latin, carolers invading your neighborhoods, and lots of melismatic singing (did you know there are 20 syllables in the word "Gloria?"). But we've also been on a serious Jonathan David kick lately, so why not take a brief break from singing the alto part of "All I Want for Christmas is You" and take a listen to STABAT MATER? Particularly suited to large ensembles, the harmonies in this piece are straight forward, but the length and musicality required make it both accessible and a challenge to any group.

To order a perusal score of STABAT MATER, visit www.seeadot.com.

Golden Callings, by Carson Cooman

Just finished working on an SATB arrangement of Carson Cooman's GOLDEN CALLINGS and it's sounding pretty "golden" moment! Certainly puts us in the mood for winter and the holiday season.

From it’s opening chant-like section to it's energetic ending, GOLDEN CALLINGS is an evocative setting of a beautiful text. The whole piece feels like a narrative told from a masterful storyteller. Great for a collegiate chamber women’s ensemble or professional group.

Alleluia, by Robinson McClellan

Out of the three Alleluias we have in the See-A-Dot catalog, Robinson McClellan's ALLELUIA is the one that gazes most at the past to foretell the future: the modal melodic lines sound downright out of the Ars subtilior movement, the counterpoint is Renaissance-like, and the harmonies have a subtle, early-20th century feel in their refractiveness. Yet melding these different influences together creates something fresh, or something akin to a lost, experimental Palestrina mass now found.

This piece is great for upper-level high school choirs, college choirs, and professional choirs looking for something particularly "chilling" for their programs. You can purchase perusal scores at www.seeadot.com!

Seven Line Supplication for Guru Rinpoche, by Harry Einhorn

This hypnotic, chant-like piece is both a choir and audience favorite. Based on a traditional Tibetan prayer, Harry Einhorn's SEVEN LINE SUPPLICATION TO GURU RINPOCHE is a master class in choral blend and breath control, as the piece is made up of beautiful open and jazz harmonies that make you feel like you are undergoing a spiritual awakening!

American Breakfast, by Saunder Choi

In AMERICAN BREAKFAST, LA-based composer Saunder Choi beautifully sets Michael Yarsky's text to create an effective piece that asks vital questions, but does not provide didactic answers. Howls, yodels, stabs of bubblegum pop singers intoning "semiautomatic," and spoken text from a semi-automatic rifle manual all coalesce together to create a harrowing depiction of the current moment.

American Breakfast serves multiple purposes as a work of art: it is a meditation for a traumatized public, an outlet for the frustrated helplessness we all feel in the face of tragedy, and a message of human solidarity from the ensemble to its audience.

Bohemian Highway, by Jon Olmstead

Jonathan Olmstead's BOHEMIAN HIGHWAY is a piece that follows in the tradition of polyrhythmic, timbral vocal composition, and like the music of Meredith Monk or Pamela Z, feels like a piece of music from some unexplored territory. Olmstead borrows polyrhythms from West African music and marries that with jazzy, rich harmonies to create an inviting atmosphere. He also decides to set the music to monosyllabic nonsense text - which can sometimes sound like some ancient language. In this way, Bohemian highway is uncanny, as it is a piece of music that feels so familiar but does not have any signifier of actually being familiar.

It also helps that this piece is a real treat to sing! Not only is the piece highly accessible, it's also adaptable to any program for any kind of choir. We've had high school choirs, college choirs, and professional choirs perform this piece, with high praise for both the performers and the composer.

For more information on BOHEMIAN HIGHWAY, visit www.seeadot.com.

It could be said that Los Angeles has conspired, by countless means and for many decades, to make itself into as hospitable an environment for new music as possible.
