    Crazy Organ

    An organ-ized rendtion of my march for band.

    I like the organ version better because I don't like much percussion. I am the only person I know of that wrote arrangements for an Army band without percussion. This was done with GPO organ.

    The link will lead to three choices.

    At the top, you will see a blue button to play the mp3.

    Just below that, you will see the score, if you have the Scorch plugin. Otherwise, a blank where the score ought to be. Here you can view the score and listen to the Scorch playback (GM), not a good sound, usually.

    Below this, under the heading of details, you will see a choice to download the mp3 file, which is the best choice if you want to hear, and don't have broadband. .

    For heaven's sake, Richard -- you've gone all tonal on us!

    I'm heartbroken.

    Please, my friend, for sake of your reputation and my longing for the old Richard's music... could you redo this in three different keys at once?

    I beg you...

    Well, this is really an old piece, just a new setting, from band to organ. I am not likely to stay so hard core tonal. I have another few marches from old, but the new works will be mostly polytonal or free tonality, sliding around a bit with a tonality that is present, but resisting definition!

    I hope it's not that hat that's responsible for this, Richard. I have one just like it, as I mentioned previously -- and now? I don't dare wear it, for fear I'll be striken with an attack of I-IV-V-I.

    Seriously, sounds rather neat on the organ. I use percussion sparingly, myself, and do not miss it... and it lends a certain calliope-esque whimsy.

    What fun!
    This would be great on a theatre organ! I wonder if there any theatre organ libs out there? I think PMI has one. Hmm, there's also a theatre with a nice organ out in NY. Maybe I can sample it since the owner is friends with my organ teacher.

    This is a great march that sounds great! I'll agree with you on the percussion to a certain extent. It really depends. With this march it really sounds great without percussion. The bassline/accomp. give a nice beat and percussion really isn't needed.

    Great piece!

    BTW: nice hat! I have one just like it!

    I rather enjoy your occasional deviations into tonality. You still manage to be quirky enough to be enjoyable, lol.
