Happy birthday, I think? I'll listen to some more of your music  8)

Mine was yesterday. However, it is Zappa's birthday, so that kind of counts. And then it's Varèse's tomorrow. Vaguely neat coincidence I guess.

I love it just the way it is . . . .

Well, at least someone does.

With a nod to both the electric piano, and a certain Top 10 hit of the late '70s . . . .

Ah yeah I get you and Zappa mixed up because of a combination of your avatar and the quirky music that both you guys make. 8)

Maybe there's some astrological correlation between being born at this time of year and being an obscure eccentric composer.

I got the reference, although I wasn't sure of the connection until reading your post just now.

Your writing is strong, both technically and in character;  I like it.

I like it.  Is this your first piece for solo piano?

Thank you. It's the first one I've published as a stand-alone work. There are a couple of others, most recently the variation I wrote for Thatfabulousalien's project back on TC. Others I've worked on are either unfinished or just not very good.

New musics are on the way, folks, one in particular I'm quite excited about (others not so much because I haven't really gotten a handle on them yet), but in the meantime here's some not very big news.

All the cool kids are doing it, and my friend said I should get one, so I have tentatively made myself a Patreon page. I don't know why anyone would want to give me money, and I don't expect anything to come of it, but we'll see. If it works out it could be a decent supplement to the as yet meagre sums I make working in video games.

Almost ready to move into phase two of something that should be pretty spectacular if I can actually pull it off.

Introducing: Pints of Brine
« Reply #36 on: February 10, 2017, 01:22:21 AM »
Things always go quicker than you expect when you're not expecting it. Well, here's Pints of Brine.

No mere pabulum, it's a pianistic parade, a plethora of pianoid planetoid paranoids passionately perambulating in pink pyjamas by the palatial pavilions of pantonal pathos. Pax, pals, and do partake, won't you please?

Found some old unreleased stuff I might re-work into something more substantial. I don't know yet, and there are quite a few other things I am already working on, including my first composition intended for human performance, so we shall see.

Introducing a few older pieces posted up on YouTube recently. They are all related to each other.

Motbourne Rag

First, a piece made entirely out of sounds from a trombone, modified to some ridiculous degree to create a wide range of sounds which become less and less trombone-y as the piece progresses. The original trombone piece was written for a friendly composition competition on another forum.

Compressed Burlesque

Next, a short piece for piano and violin, originally written for another friendly composition competition on another forum. It's a fun little ditty that I keep thinking I'll expand with additional movements but never do.

The Hole

Lastly, a large-scale piece made mostly out of voice recordings. Motbourne Rag was kind of a technical dry run for this in a lot of ways, and the beginning and end are made entirely out of Compressed Burlesque.
