    Arrow "Modes"

    All of y'all,

    This is my brief organ work, "Modes", so-called because it alternates between major and minor.

    I first posted this over fourteen months ago. Since then I re-wrote part of it.

    Regards,

    Larry

    minor minor minor...major major major. minor minor. Etc.....lol. very tasteful. Very baroque. Once again, another great Alexander the Great work of pure art. You never post anything that bores me. It's so repetetive with just the right amount of change when it just tilts on boredom you throw something new in there to euprise me. Even right when it was ending i thought we were going into a new piece or melody, and your "author-ic" mind said...no no no, not too much right now.

    Loved it

    A very nice way to develop ideas in different modes. The shift back and forth is well executed. The ending seems abrupt, but I have heard that type of ending on baroque pieces. I liked this alot.

    I wasn't in my right mind when I wrote it.

    Thanks for giving it a listen, Mr. Jay.

    I enjoyed your mode shifts. I need to disagree with tuba jedi master though – although I find the instrumentation baroque, this really reminds me of music from a 1920’s radio show that was trying to get the turn of the century type sound. Parts of it have a huge ragtime influence and sound almost vaudeville. Anyway, besides quibbling over genre (it is pure Alexander), I found this enjoyable.

    Thanks for listening and letting me know what you think, Mr. Trent. I appreciate your input.

    An early Happy Birthday to you!

    Good morning, Larry

    This is entertainingly odd piece, with the bursts of rag time interspersed throughout the baroqueishly (new word, like it?) styled chase-music rhythms. Only your fertile musical imagination would come up with such a fun musical bonbon.

    Carry on, Mr. Prolific!

    That's my purpose in life - to be entertainingly odd or perhaps oddly entertaining.

    Glad you were entertained.

    A worthwhile revisitation of Modes, Larry, with its variegated
    modal and stylistic foliage.

    And Larry, I've never once, not ever, thought of you as "odd".

    A little peculiar sometimes... rofl... but certainly not odd!

    All my best,
