Explanation 0f My MIDI's and Musical Style

    Much of my music is very theme oriented- similar to video game music. I am now a video game music composer, so naturally game music inspires me. I wrote some of my game music for a multi-player strategy game I created, starring the Greek Gods of Olympus. Since I cannot program as of yet, The Gods' Game remains in board game form and has for many years, but hopefully one day will be programmed. Much of my game music is imitative of the Role-playing Game (RPG) style. In addition to game music, I compose for the piano, so I sequence and arrange several pieces for MIDI. Other pieces I compose using the computer and my Peavey keyboard; these pieces are what I would call program music or modern classical. These styles have shaped my music thus far. But I try to expand my composition style with every piece I write to better my composition skills and musical understanding.


Soundcard and Repeat Note

    As an additional note, I composed all of my MIDI files using Creative's series soundcards. So, at least a wavetable soundcard or nice soundfonts should be used to enjoy these fully. Some songs might suffer in quality without one. Also, I loop most of my video game pieces once to show that, were they playing during a game, they would repeat endlessly.

Etudes, New Age, Modern Classical
very meaningful pieces not necessarily meant to be in a game

Song Name

Description
*Crystal Fields An experimental piece; done by pure instinct. It is like program music, I added some poetry:
...as the crystals grew and pierced their shards through the soil, so did the children run amidst them, shattering all but joy and showering light.
(see
award room)
Electric Cascade The piece that broke out of a many month compositional dry spell... Began as a techno battle song, became quite a bit more. A groundbreaker for me; very new style.
*Field of Wind An old composition made new with the joys of MIDI; the title explains the music: Expressive wind and string ensemble piece.
