David Cuff's Music catalogue

David Cuff has published ten original compositions on Musicaneo.

Ten original compositions have been published on Musicaneo. Originally from the UK, I was living in Western Australia from 2006 to 2018, and these works were composed there. Nine of them lie within my overall theme of writing happy, uplifting music, to try and bring some cheer to an often depressing world. I mostly compose for piano (with a few written for accompanying instruments) and these are the nine released so far. There are larger scale works in the pipeline too.

The tenth work, "16 million souls" is different. The title reflects the (estimated) number of people who died in the two world wars of the twentieth century; the timing of the piece‚Äôs conception reflects the various recent centennial anniversaries of the first war. The first part of the piece reflects on several military themes and the sounds of guns and explosions typical of warfare. The remainder of the piece reminds us that many of those who survived service on the front (including my grandfather, who spent most of WWI as a stretcher bearer picking up bodies, seriously wounded men and body parts) had their daily lives regularly interrupted by mental flashbacks and trauma resulting from their embedded and un-erasable memories. This piece is offered free, but if it is felt good enough to perform then a donation to RSL etc would be appropriate.
