This is the website of Clement Jewitt, PhD: composer, writer, etc.

 

Owing to concerns of unwarranted intrusions either to this site or to my email client, the CONTACT PAGE has been reworked to a non-automatic design.  Requests for music scores, articles etc, can be made via that page.  Some articles are uploaded to academia.edu and elsewhere, indicated on the relevant page.  Music recordings are just samples - Clement welcomes interest contacts.

 

Here are and will be information on my musical activities, together with writings, pictures (sketches etc.), photographs, and other material relating to interests and creative work other than the musical.  The Galleries page awaits renewal.

 

My written words

Use the navigation on the left to select which type of writings you wish to explore.  Of course I realise that even enthusiastic web browsers will balk at reading most (or all) of my stuff.  But you never know, there might be something unexpected here for you! 

And it is all rather varied—articles on a range of subjects; personal accounts of experiences; an unfinished book on a trip to E.Africa; reviews; hard nosed conference proceedings, my PhD thesis.  There is even a ghost and an SF story, and a wacky dream fragment.

If you don't look, you might miss something . . .
