"Not The Title" Pieces Available Again

On a recent walk my iPod decided that I needed to hear my piece entitled This Is Not The Title EITHER. I hadn't listened to it in quite a while, probably more than a year.  I enjoy hearing my own music after long periods of absence because it's as close as I can get to experiencing it with the ears of someone who hasn't composed my own music.

I enjoyed it.  It's a wacky piece.  Really wacky.  I admit that as a composer - heck, as a person - I have a wacky streak.  This music comes fright out of that streak.  I only hope that music of this sort will infuriate dogmatic minimalists and doctrinaire, close-minded fans of classical music.



You might remember that This Is Not The Title EITHER is the sequel to another piece This Is Not The Title.   I composed them in 2008.  It's hard to say which piece is the wackier.

Links to the music site (which shall MOG remain nameless) where you once could hear these pieces have long since stopped working.  So I have uploaded them both anew.  I'm happy to report that they are available for listening once again - just in time for 2012. 

I knew you'd be thrilled - especially if you are a dogmatic minimalist or a doctrinaire, close-minded fan of the classics.

The sound quality is, as they say, medium crappy at best.  Think of it as a feature, not a bug.  It helps accentuate the wack.
