MUSIC 
These three are me playing the piano, mistakes and all, with no 'computer tricks'. The were sequenced using a Roland RD300S keyboard, 88 weighted keys.
Close To You
Misty
Somewhere My Love
 
These are all duets, two pianos with me playing both.

Sir Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance" (familiar to most as the graduation march) was arranged for 8 hands, two pianos - all 8 hands mine. 
The "St. Louis Tickle" is an old rag time piece. Someone (I wish I knew who) had programmed this for the Radio Shack Color Computer Orchestra-90 5 Note Synthesizer. I wrote a program that converted from that file format to MIDI. This must have been in the early 80's.

These three were played and arranged by me on a Yamaha PSR-520, 61 key synthesizer. They are classical in nature. "Fiddle Faddle" by Leroy Anderson is all strings, Cavalleria Rusticana contains the meditation and prayer from the Pietro Mascagni opera, which I believe to be some of the most beautiful music in the world. "We Gather Together" is an old Dutch hymn I arranged for Thanksgiving. It is a work in progress. I'm adding the interlude that Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops used when they performed the piece. Also will add the pipe organ closure.

These were played by me one part at a time on a keyboard (U220 and RD300S). And then were edited in Cakewalk (there still a couple of minor glitches in them). Count Basie's "One O'Clock Jump" was arranged by me. One O'Clock Jump and Joe Garland's "In The Mood" are scored for a small group - bass, piano, drums, trumpet trombone and sax. "South Rampart Street Parade is an old Dixieland piece and, along with "Someone To Watch Over Me", were scored for big band - bass, piano, drums, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 4 saxes and 1 clarinet. I played these parts from some old big band charts I had laying around. The piano solo in South Rampart Street is an original.
