This project has two main aims:
The second goal - to provoke development of mantroch may sound vain. Mantroch was created as a way of synthesising different traditions. Time and time again I have found myself reverting to basic principles gained from species counterpoint to create a ground for a mantroch piece. Therefore, perhaps it is worth exploring more formally and systematically the potential of synthesising the two traditions.
There are donate buttons in the right index on all of the pages. This is via paypal, although I have made my own button. I have other ideas for free information on the web, and some of these need both time and a lot more space. The suggestion for donations is to help offset costs incurred in this counteropint (and teach yourself bagpipes) and to raise funds to undertake something wholly more ambitious...And if nothing else, it helps support my mission - to drive piping forward!
I sincerely hope you enjoy exploring species counterpoint.
