Many here know me for my mock-ups of the classics. Truth is, I did a little composing in high school and later in the eighties. Life takes many unexpected turns and I got away from music altogether for many years. When I returned, my focus was demos.
The music of the many fine composers here has inspired me to try my hand at composing again.
Here is a short piece called Gargoyles. Premise. The listener is outside a cathedral at night. It is calm and peaceful. Then....the gargoyles come to life and party like...Gargoyles. In it I make extensive use of the medieval chant Dies Irae (apologies to Berlioz and Rachmoninov). Seemed appropriate for the setting.
Comments welcome, as always. This is my first attempt at writing in 19 years. Have as much fun listening as I did writing.
