    Water Music

    The Kaweah is a California river, short and splashy, with plenty of rapids.

    Dynamic markings are general guidelines, with plenty of room for artistic expression. The mp3, (GPO Steinway) is a better representation that Scorch. Perhaps the rain will abate for a time, and then I will not be so focused on watery things. But tomorrow will bring another storm, so I guess it is time to fetch the pontoon shoes!


    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. The mp3 is the GPO Steinway.

    Top-flight, Richard... an excellent piece!

    With many of your pieces in some way oriented around water, I think you've come to a point where you truly *are* transforming it into music. This piece left me with the strange sensation of -- I don't normally suffer hallucinations, by the way -- being literally comprised of a river myself.

    I've had this looping for a short while now... a genuinely unusual experience! I suspect you're tapping into some very deep, er, currents in the human mind -- however it is you're doing that...

    Water, water everywhere and not a drop to ... well you know.

    After listening to many of your pieces, I get the sense that you love a very strong rhythmic drive to your music. This piece is no exception. Even if you had'nt mentioned what the piece is about, one could certainly get a feel of fast moving water over rocks and stones, rippling fast than not so fast as it flows along. This is a wonderful musical presentation.
