Audio & Video Files
Here you will find all sorts of music I have created over the years. Some good...and some...ah, shall we say, of an earthier vintage. In addition to my own inventions there are also some pieces by friends and associates represented. These files will be clearly indicated.
Lastly, but not least, is the matter of taste.
Some of my music and that of my friends is patently offensive to some people. We worked hard to achieve this effect and are damned proud of our insult. Again, these files will be CLEARLY indicated so that your tender sensitivities are not unduly violated. Enjoy!
....but first a picture....
Dark Days A piano improvisation. A reflective ditty.
Melancholy - Why so depressed? Take some Zoloft or something! A solo piano piece suitable for teary-eyed cinema.
Minutes - a string quartet. This is a modern original work of mine that
is comprised of five, one minute movements:
1-Wheel, 2-Antiquity, 3-Moment Unmusical, 4-Reverie, and 5-Zawinal. Performed by Willy Juncosa and Hanna Beckham.
The score is available upon special request.
J.S.Bach Fugue in A mi - This is a Piano Four-Hands version of the famous BWV545 originally composed for Organ. This arrangement of my own device distributes the voices (and difficulty) more evenly amongst the two players. This was recorded live and the players are Josephine Alvarado, and yours truely. The printed score is available.
Jazz Illusion 1 - While on the subject of Piano Four-Hands music ...this piece is part 1 of 3. A hellish jazz piece to play. The score is available if you think that you are brave enough. ( Oh, I know it sounds intermediate. )
The JSB Rag - I wrote this as a paraphrase of the Three B's - Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms all in one ragtime piece. The theme is based on Bach's Double Violin Concerto in D Minor, the other two guys just sneak in stylistically. This arrangement is scored for Violin and Piano. The score is available.
Impromptu in Gb - Ok, I did not write this one. Schubert did it so complain to him, I'm only playing the piece. Song without words. What else can one say?
on Bach's little Prelude in C minor - This is a syncopated adaptation
of the famous little Prelude originally included in the Anna Magdelena Notebook.
This is another arrangement of my own device and adds some distinctly romantic
influences to the piece.
The printed score in PDF format is available for a $1.50 download fee -
Ambient Grace - Metamorphosis and two variations on "Amazing Grace". This is my electronica side being unleashed from it's cage. The piece is some 13 minutes long and an 18meg download. If your connection is slow, be patient.
In my dream - more sound design than music. Some would argue that, and accuse me of being trite and melancholic: going about with my heart on my sleeve. You be the judge. This was set on tape in 1991 towards the end of the golden age of analog home recording.
Smokafatti - From the same era as "In My Dream". These pieces were originally realized for a Video demonstrating real cutting edge computer graphics software for the time. Now it all seems sort of "lavalamp" but the music still fits.

- Video Snigglet 1- Mov. 3 from the B minor Sonata by J. S. Bach: Willy Juncosa and I are "cold reading" this beautiful piece by the Great Master....well we're giving it our best for a first try.
- Video Snigglet 2- Ok, ok...this is not MY music...just a silly video snigglet that I munged together in iMovie for hoots and giggles. It's VEGAS BABY!
