Hearing ragtime (thanks Nicole!) always makes me think of summer and summer always makes me think of ragtime. With the first day of summer only a few days away, I thought I'd post this in celebration:

I tried to paint an impression of a starry summer night loosely around the ragtime form, in this case IntroAABBACCDD. The 'A' and 'D' sections are the "twinkley stars" bits. The 'B' section is a nod to traditional ragtime and 'C' is based on a latin ryhthm I heard one day.
This is performed using the GPO Steinway piano with Ambience Concert Hall 2 reverb.
Any and all feedback is welcome!
