Sunday Morning Music: Elephants Piss in Fear

The title of this movement from Time Grown Old – Images of the Mahabharata, that I composed back 1995, is a literal translation of an actual phrase from the Mahabharata. The entire four movements form a concerto for pipe organ, percussion, and electronic sound.… Continue Reading “Sunday Morning Music: Elephants Piss in Fear”

Tales of the Laughing Wizards

It is so easy to get distracted in life, isn’t it?! My intention with this blog was to regularly call attention to past pieces I’ve written as well as new ones. It’s the “regularly” part of that intention that went astray. So, today, I’m… Continue Reading “Tales of the Laughing Wizards”

Amidst the city’s desolation, the Anima appears as a woman clothed in radiant white

I added a new track to The Geography of Dreams: Amidst the city’s desolation, the Anima appears as a woman clothed in radiant white. There’s two kinds of programmatic music: what are often called “character pieces,” short pieces with a descriptive title, the music… Continue Reading “Amidst the city’s desolation, the Anima appears as a woman clothed in radiant white”

The Forest

Larger pieces evolve and often change direction, entailing a complete reworking of the idea and its parts. That’s what’s happening with this new groups of pieces called “The Forest.” The Soundcloud tags I’m using are “electronic,” “ambient,” “fae,” and “elven.” So…that pretty well describes… Continue Reading “The Forest”

Tales of the Laughing Wizards

Admittedly, these are outright, unabashedly commercial pieces aimed at a specific audience, namely the good listeners of radioreddit.com. I’d uploaded some of my short pieces for piano there and surprisingly they’re getting repeat airplay and upvotes every day (so I know it’s not just… Continue Reading “Tales of the Laughing Wizards”
