A few days ago, I finished recording a piece I composed called The Scarpe in E Major. It’s a meditation on a part of my Tormay Trilogy. Music is one of my biggest loves in my life and I rarely feel more in tune with existence than when I’m composing. Or perhaps I should use the word create instead. I’ll leave composing to Herr Bach and other worthies. If you have a moment, click here and give The Scarpe a listen.
I just posted a short instrumental I recorded called The Ghost in the Attic. It’s a meditation on one of the characters from the Tormay Trilogy who first appears in my newest book, The Shadow at the Gate. Garageband, of course, with a final mix in Logic Express. You can listen to it here.
Here’s another seat-of-the-pants song. Give it a listen, and feel free to take it if you want.
Here’s a song from my old rock band days in Chicago. Those were fun times, but hard on the vocal chords. Anyway, this one is called Camera. It’s a bit harder than the other tunes I’ve put up on this site.
I think I wrote this song in about five minutes. Yeah, that’s potentially a double-edged thing to admit, as some listeners might point out that the song certainly sounds like it was written in five minutes. My view on it is that sometimes creativity springs forth in immediacy and instantaneous completion. How is that possible?
