Under construction (maybe)

The question as to whether I will ever finish this construction is one buried deep in problems as to whether I think it is useful to have such a page. To what use will the information be put? Will it add to the sum of human happiness? These are just some of the questions which are raised.

Quick links: Electro-acoustic Music, Other music, Computer Algebra, Quality Compilation, Politics, My music, Vegetarians and if you want to offer me a job my Curriculum Vitae.

The following links are of much more dubious value, and may indeed be of even less interest than John Fitch. Any comments on these fragments can be send to him by mail.

John ffitch as Composer

The complete catalogue is being constructed elsewhere. As I have time the material here will migrate to the new catalog.

Voice in the Machine

The Voice in the Machine was a weekend course given by Richard Dobson and John Fitch in December 1994 as part of the Community Courses of the University of Bath. This work is a collage, assembled by John Fitch, of the students' work. (Unfortunately I do not have the names of all the composers). The sound quality of this down-sampled version is not good.

Collage 8KHz 110s 858Kb

Tape works

There is only a small body of completed works described here

For Fabienne

A short piano work, written in 1964 for Fabienne Thain, and recently revised. It was written to be played on a real piano, but as I cannot play, this is created by Csound and a sampled piano.

Prelude (extract) 8KHz 20.34s 318KMb

Prelude (as MIDI file)

Singing in the Bath

A CD of music from Bath, including the pieces above, have been created and is available for money from me. There are 14 tracks, including music by Peter Cook, John ffitch and Jeremy Leach. More details can be found elsewhere.

Vegetarian Links

I am the administrator of one of the vegetarian mailing lists,, and am also a recipient of other vegetarian lists. From this it should come as no surprise to you to discover that I am a vegetarian. As a service to many of my friends, here are some links to vegetarian resources.
