Marc Yeats

classical contemporarysoloorchestralchamber

Marc is a composer, landscape painter and artistic practice researcher. Together with explorations of temporality, perceptual obfuscation, serendipity, play, geology, layering, erosion, landscape and place-specific resonance, these art-forms, structures and approaches cross-fertilise and influence each other to find embodiment in his work. Understanding, researching and developing this self-referential relationship remains his life-long challenge and passion.

Patrons connecting with Marc will get a unique insight into how the relationships between painting, music and landscape shape his creative practice.

🔒 Music, Painting, Landscape and Me: An Autobiography

Back at my favourite local Beech tree, I’m talking about the Arts Council England DYCP funded book I’m currently writing, ‘Music, Painting, Landscape and Me’, explaining the challenges approaching the autoethnographic autobiographical content of the chapter I’m working on just now. I talk about how the subjects covered in this book are at the very heart of my practice as a composer and why it is relevant to discuss these wider creative issues.

🔒 New Piano Piece and More on Creative Survival

Here, I present more detailed information about one of my current composition projects and again discuss the importance of saying ‘yes’ to exciting opportunities even when the usual money from commissioning isn’t available, explaining how crucial the income received from Music Patron is in this regard in keeping one’s professional profile alive and work performed in public.
