I like to
write songs. Nothing spectacular, just some amateur stuff.
All the files below are in mp3 format.
- Here is a very brief (20 sec.)
experimental song called A Pythagorean Triple, featuring me on piano,
harmonica, and glockenspiel. I have been obsessed for some time with
creating music, such as this piece, that is polytonal, polyrhythmic, and
non-dissonant. Each of the three parts is in a different time signature
and in a different key signature. However, at any given moment in the
song, the notes being played are all part of some major or minor chord.
The piano is in 3 time and in the key of C sharp.
The harmonica is in 4 time and in the key of A.
The glockenspiel is in 5 time and in the key of
F. The three key signatures are equally spaced apart from each other. The
three time signatures, 3-4-5, give the piece its name.
- Another experimental polytonal,
polyrhythmic, non-dissonant (PPN) song called Shakurina. This one is
computer-generated from a MIDI file. The three parts in different key and
time signatures kick in at the end; until then, it's just bizarre.
- Yet another computer-generated PPN
song, this one called Four Lane Highway. This one has four parts doing the
PPN thing, in 2, 3, 5, and 7 time.
- A very short computer-generated
song called Two Bridges. I think it sounds like a theme song, but
to what, I don't know.
- Here's a guitar track for a song called "Won't You."
Any singers out there want to collaborate to put vocals on top of this,
please let me know.
crossword and otherwise
- Here's a crossword called Turn, turn, turn. There is, of course, a gimmick to
it; see if you can figure out what it is.
