This website is dedicated to preserving the compositional legacy of Dennis Kam. It is the result of the efforts of Raymond Lim (project initiator) and John Van der Slice, with the help and encouragement of Cynthia Chun Kam. What follows here by the undersigned is part personal recollection, part subjective interpretation of the composer's music and part attempt at an introductory listening guide. The majority of the works mentioned below are arguably among the composer's most significant and can usually be accessed as recordings and/or scores on this site. Distinctive characteristics of these pieces are briefly described, occasionally in a somewhat technical manner. Some listeners may wish to simply use the highlighted (bold) titles as “suggested listening.”
John Van der Slice.
