 Everyone Lives Forever 5.29Mb

This was just a fun style to write. The idea for this song came from a computer game entitled "No One Lives Forever 2". I disagree with the game's title. "Everyone Lives Forever".

 I Don't Wanna Let You Go 6.20 MB

This was a request from a friend and an interesting study in how to manipulate a very simple chord progression. I like the "tight" piano solo, simply reversed toward the end of the piece.

 

 

 

Commercial Classical

 Fantasm 1.66 MB

I hear this piece as a "car commercial". Maybe robotic arms putting the vehicle together piece by piece..........maybe not.

 

 

 

Classical

 Orchestral 13.1 MB

This is my personal favorite! (A work in progress.) I love the form of this composition. The story behind this one......My wife and I had tickets to see a Christmas concert that we had been looking forward to for months. The night of the concert, I end up battling a cold. My wife took a good friend and I stayed home feeling sorry for myself. The opening line, played by an english horn, is the first thing I came up with when I sat done at the keyboard. Listen for the echoes in the middle section. I love this piece.

 

 

 

Metal

 Metal 5.38 MB    Roland Fantom X SVQ File *

The SVQ file has a change in the percussion patch to facilitate global compatability.

Not bad guitar from a keyboard player. The group "Van Halen" greatly influenced my solo guitar work.

 

 

 

Alternative Rock

I am quite happy with the "wide" guitar sound in this piece. You can watch me play this one on 'YouYube'!

Not "Walk Like An Egyptian". Listen for the mummy at the very end.

Fun with filter, pitch, and panning sweeps, hence, the name.

This is an example of how "real" a piece can sound when vocal clips are added in appropriate places within the music. If you would also like to hear some realistic trumpet work done on a keyboard, you may want to check this demo out.

With 40 minutes to kill, this is what I imagine it to sound like if "Bond . . . James Bond" were to  meet The Three Kings of the Orient !
