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
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.
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.
Adieu Mes Amours
Band Orchestration: Flute, Clarinet, Alto, Tenor, Bari Sax, 2 Trumpets, Horn, Trombone, Tuba
Note: Arranged from Keyboard Transcription of a Josquin Des Prez piece
Same piece, but with ACCIDENTAL percussion...MIDI Channel 10 is apparently just percussion.
Note: A music theory assignment: Given a melody, harmonize similar to
what J.S. Bach would have done.
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!"
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.
Woodwind Quintet: Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Horn, Bassoon
Note: Took the C-A-B-B-A-G-E section from Chopin Cabbage, and reorchestrated it.
Note: Just a melody I wrote when I was bored one day.
Percussion Ensemble: Vibraphone, Marimba, Xylophone, Chimes, Woodblock
Note: Vibes still have the 'Zerbert' melody, but harmonized with the other instruments.
Hole in my heart
Piano and Vocalist
Note: This is dedicated to my love, Elizabeth Harper

Saxaphone Quartet: Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone Saxes
Note: X-Files theme with a twist.
(Click on the Name to download)
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.
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.
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.
