Listen to My Compositions (If You Dare)

I’ve added some more recordings to the archive of all music I’ve participated in. The recordings that just became available to me are all from the period of 1995-96, which was my most prolific year of composing music during undergraduate music studies.

There are five pieces: a bass clarinet duet, a piece for solo piano, a piece for electric guitar and harpsichord (with a title referring to the work of H.P. Lovecraft), and a couple of pieces for large ensemble.

I’ll be working on getting more recordings of my work in the next year, but it’s come to my attention that some of the recordings of pieces I liked even more than these were irrevocably lost, as was the one and only archive of a jazz trio gig I really wanted to post here. Ah well, that’s life. There’ll be other jazz gigs, if I ever get back to practicing… and there’s still hope for a couple of the compositions, one of which I’m thinking of reworking for two pianos and string quartet (as the original, for two pianos and electric guitar, left something to be desired aurally, though the concept and material worked very well, I daresay better than some of the stuff posted above).

Anyway, if you’re interested in hearing what was my most experimental music, the stuff I did just before I chucked music aside and dove into literature and writing, follow this link. But remember, “experimental” means “weird”.
