Music for taking on a big space thing. [more inside]
It's an allegro but I don't know what work this particular movement is from.
If you listen closely the five tones from Close Encounters of the Third Kind are almost in there.
Very pleased with how the key change at 1:30ish, just before the synthflute comes in, worked out
Slower, shorter and synthed up version of Cascade
Solo Spanish guitar
Clunky bluesy picking on a Spanish guitar for the first minute and then it opens up a lot.
An Eye for Breathing and Stopping Theory [Q-Tip vs. Michael Nyman] it's just Breathe and Stop versus An Eye for Optical Theory like that's the whole thing
the first half of (what's supposed to be) a presto
Dark sibling to my global smash hit Goldenhill
It's a graptolites thing. Lots of guitars. Lots of effects. Some keys. All the rules broken.
More ambient guitar noodlings.

This is for the 60 second Metafilter November Music Challenge. My software, the Platonic Music Engine, generates 6 glorious seconds of avant-garde electronic beeps and boops for your listening pleasure! Many, many, many more details inside. [more inside]
If you've ever watched Masterpiece Theater on PBS, you've heard this Rondeau by Jean Joseph Mouret. [more inside]
In case you haven't had your shot of modernist/postmodernist classical music today here is a musical analogue to John Cage's mesostic method of generating texts. Warning, the music starts off very softly and then has loud bits. If you listen carefully you just might hear something familiar embedded within the stream of notes. [more inside]
If synthesizers were around, would Peter Illich Tchaikowsky have used one? [more inside]
Short piano solo: Snow falls on the prairie.
A piano composition written a while ago at the end of autumn for the first snowfall. The changing of seasons; the coming winter; delight in the sounds of children playing in the fresh fallen snow. [more inside]
This is sketch I did in MIDI of another instrumental song
Pensive piano interspersed with electronic outbursts and a broad, burbling middle section. [more inside]

Choral work in support of marriage equality, with text taken from a speech by a Republican WWII vet. Performed by the Simon Carrington Chamber Singers 2010. [more inside]
this came from a guitar thing I came up with. I really messed up the recording, so I should re-record it someday. [more inside]

So that you're not left hanging after the conclusion of the third movement, here's the finale of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, programmed in SONAR with the Miroslav Philharmonk library.
A few weeks ago I bought Miroslav Philharmonik, an orchestral sample library, and to test it out, I programmed the third and fourth movements of the Beethoven Fifth in SONAR. Here's the third movement. I'll post the fourth tomorrow.
My first attempt at composing a song using musescore. A bit of a baroque feel to it. (not any real training so I may have broken lots of rules of composition :P)
I sang in the college choir, and one semester, we performed this selection from Benjamin Britten's War Requiem. One day, I pictured a tremolo guitar replacing the orchestra. [more inside]
Its been a while! Inspiration struck, and while I was unconscious this is what it recorded. Hope you enjoy it! [more inside]

A fantastic piece of symphonic music with deep connections to electronica, joe's last mix by Tanner Menard is a fun ride (this performance is by one of my ensembles with me conducting). I've posted this before, but he and I are doing something different with the piece, and I'm wondering if any of you are interested in participating.... [more inside]
This piece is supposed to represent or express a particular emotion. Please let me know what emotion you think it is. [more inside]
A slow, two line piece on classical guitar, not really in a medieval style but I wasn't sure what else to call it! Hope everyone who takes the time to listen to it enjoys it. [more inside]
