    "Dramatic Chromatics"

    Say hello to my "Dramatic Chromatics" This piece begins and ends in the key of B Major. In between I visit many other keys...hence the name.

    This is a study in multi-transposition and can be a little unnerving because of the lack of a comfortable "home" key signature. You probably will either like it or put out a murder-for-hire contract on me.

    The instrument is the GPO harpsichord with keyswitch B5.

    Sincerefully yours,

    Ol' Larry A.

    I love it! I've always been a fan of "unusual" chord progressions. This is awesome! On my second listen now Some of these phrases remind me of something Danny Elfman would write.

    Thanks Larry.

    And thank you, Kin. I like the work of Danny Elfman although I haven't heard his music in a long time.

    My best,

    Larry A.

    I like it!

    I'll have to refer to this when I'm stumped on finding an unusual chord progression to use.

    It kind of almost has a ragtime feel to it-- I'm reminded of G. H. Green's Chromatic Foxtrot xylophone solo.

    Another fun piece from Mr. Alexander! I enjoyed this piece, especially the ending. The transposing keeps the ear from getting bored, yet they do not happen so quickly that can't make sense of it. At the rate you compose, are you sure you can't beat Bach?

    Herr Bach (or his ghost) has absolutely nothing to be concerned about.

    Thanks for listening.

    Thanks for taking the time to listen. You have to be very strange to write something like this. They are going to remove my straitjacket tomorrow.

    Thank you very much for your comment.

    Study, study, study. Write, write, write. Listen, listen, listen. Ask, ask, ask. Read scores, read scores, read scores. Experiment, experiment, experiment. Work, work, work.

    Now, I am taking a trip to your website to listen to YOUR music.

    Regards,

    Larry A.
