I am a musician and information technology worker living in Melbourne, Australia, and an infrequent contributor to Wikipedia, the reason being that I invest most of my time editing musical works, many of which are freely available at the Choral Public Domain Library or the Petrucci Music Library (where I am an active contibutor), and have an interest in many diverse musical subjects. I tend only to step in to edit pages when they contain outrageously incorrect information! (That is, to say, practically never.)
- I am the principal author of the Wikipedia article on Brian’s most notable work, the Gothic Symphony, arguably the largest choral-orchestral composition in the history of Western art music. I am one of the team of proof-readers and editors of the UK-based Havergal Brian Society’s Scores Sub-Committee, which is currently typesetting this work, amongst others; I am the principal editor of Brian’s Seventh Symphony, which is mercifully written for a much smaller orchestra!
Other articles I occasionally keep an eye on:
- Requiem masses, e.g.
- the requiem by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as it is notoriously surrounded by misinformation as well as outright myth.
- the unfinished Tenth Symphony in F sharp minor.
- Tall structures
- the IAU's new planet definition
- Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting prolific batsmen (cricket)
- Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, possibly the most beautifully typeset book ever printed?
