ABOUT SOUND STUDIO PUBLICATIONS
Balancing audience-pleasing accessibility with fresh, exciting music that challenges and inspires players to exceed their own limits, Sound Studio Publications offers uniquely creative, impeccably edited scores and parts that help performers share the joy of making music. In addition to our existing eclectic catalog, on commission we create custom scores that WOW players and listeners alike.
In response to numerous requests from fledgling musicians, composers and singers, Sound Studio Publications was founded in New York City in 1983 as a subsidiary of a prosperous music production company; the initial publication of "Getting Into The Jingle Business" was an immediate success and the book was adopted as a college text by many schools for their commercial music curricula. This sold-out title is no longer in print.
The next publication was a commissioned work entitled, "Interludes
for Percussion & Trumpet." This piece was premiered
by percussionist Michael Englander and trumpeter G.
Burnette Dillon at the 1985 Percussive Arts Society International Convention in Los Angeles, California. "Interludes"
has enjoyed brisk sales for many years, was featured on a Chicago
Symphony chamber music concert in 2004, and has been recorded
on Equilibrium Records (CD-58) "Old
News" by trumpeter Stephen Dunn and percussionist John Pennington.
"Brass Trio (1988)" soon followed - 1st Place winner
of the International Horn Society Composition Contest
in 1989 and premiered at the annual convention in Munich, Germany.
It was featured on BBC Radio for several years and was
recorded on CD by Finland's TRIO PUHALLUS on Jasse
Records. TRIO PUHALLUS's recording of this composition
is featured on the Wrightwood Records CD, "Piercing
The Celluloid Veil."
New works for concert band, jazz band, orchestra, brass, woodwinds, strings, percussion and more are being generated by Sound Studio Publications' principals Marilyn Harris and Mark Wolfram in addition to other accomplished music writers.
