Duckworth, however, has never received the amount of attention that John Adams has. Maybe it's because Duckworth actually chose an academic career in music education over freelance composition. Maybe it's because Duckworth's compositions reveal a more intimate approach to scoring, length and scope when compared to the extroverted John Adams.. whatever the reason, we can still witness a composer who pioneered a distinctly American style of composition, while working in new genres such as Internet music, something he dedicated himself to in his last years.
