Ethan's Music Page


Another Music page, you say. What makes this one different from
all those other Music pages, you ask? Well, I'll tell you...

THESE ARE ORIGINAL COMPOSITIONS

or arrangements.

THAT'S RIGHT! I wrote these all by myself. I hope you enjoy them.
If you have any comments, just write 'em in
at the bottom of the page.

MIDI MUSIC

2 On 3 By 4

String Quartet: 2 Violins, Viola, Cello.
Note: A 2 on 3 pattern is played at the beginning.
Uses Strange Harmonies, and wholetone scales.

Bachish Chorale

Organ
Note: A music theory assignment: Given a melody, harmonize similar to
what J.S. Bach would have done.

Boomerang

Brass Quintet: 2 Trumpets, Horn, Trombone, Tuba
Note: Is meant to simulate the throwing of a boomerang. When you
first try, it doesn't come back, but after a while you
get better, and it finally returns, with a triumphant "TAH DAH!"

Chopin Cabbage

Piano
Note: The assignment was to write a 3 movement Chopin-esque piece.
It's not really close to Chopin.
C-A-B-B-A-G-E was the melody for the second section, hence the name.

Coleslaw

Woodwind Quintet: Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Horn, Bassoon
Note: Took the C-A-B-B-A-G-E section from Chopin Cabbage, and reorchestrated it.

MP3 MUSIC

Family Fugue

Computer music piece for speaking voice.
Note: Based off of word associations I wrote. This is the first
movement of a 3 movement work I've entitled Suite Talkin'
The other 2 movements will be posted later.

QMS

Computer Music
Note: Using a sound I created on a NeXT workstation, I wrote this
piece. It is 4 minutes long, uses 4 different notes in 4 different
octaves, and live, will have one sound out of 4 different speakers.
QMS stands for Quadra-Mono-Sonic.

Sui Generis

Computer Music
Note: Programmed on a Macintosh using the Max programming language
then processed in ProTools. This piece was written for performace with
a dance choreographed by Andy Kepka. The program uses a mixture of
digital sampling, with MIDI instruments.
