More pleasant distractions for your life. Have fun!
Here are three more pieces for piano and orchestra. Hope they fit somewhere in your brain!
Here is a reference I used for my Biology class some years back, in case you need it. And, as always, I add a new piece of music, which, in this case, is completely unrelated. Enjoy!
Three short compositions for you pianists to figure out. Have fun!
I call this “Everywhere I Go.”
Here are three more themes of very different mood and tempo. Hope you like them!
Here are two of my songs, one from 1972 when the Vietnam War protests were going on, and one from about 1995, when horses were still useful. Enjoy.
This set of four pieces was written between 2008 and 2020, and includes a salute to a bright morning, a string piece with a piano as percussion, a mystery, and finally, an untitled orchestral piece I wrote in 2008. Have a good time!
The following pieces track the ontogeny of a butterfly, from the magnificent egg through the busy larval and anticipatory pupal stages, to the flying and mating adult, and finally the memory of a life well lived. These pieces come from my archives, from 2008 through 2020. The last (Theme 1) was the first piece of instrumental music I ever wrote on GarageBand. Enjoy.
And another new song!
Here is a song I wrote in about 1974, commemorating a pilgrimage some friends and I took to Los Alamos, NM on August 6-9 to call attention to (and address and bemoan) the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We were a rag-tag group, walking from Taos to Los Alamos through Santa Fe, sleeping in fields, and carrying signs. The inspiration was from Saint Francis, who walked about similarly, calling people to join the “new madness.” We met with the director of the Los Alamos laboratory, who assured us of the necessity of building earth-destroying bombs that he hoped we’d never have to use again. After I recorded this, a friend sent it to Joan Baez, who, I hope, had a chuckle.
And, a while later, after hiking and camping along the Conejos River in southern Colorado, I wrote this peaceful song. I recorded it recently, and I can’t sing so well anymore, so…
More soon. Thanks for listening!
