Feel free to download any of this music and use it for stuff – Creative Commons (attribution-sharealike) – all I ask is to see what gets done with it, really. Just out of curiosity.

Added on 15 December:
– Autumn Leaves – a simple piano waltz with a bouncy clarinet melody. It sounds a bit 70s sitcom-ish. So I made one without the clarinet too.
– Piano Riff. That’s what it is. I like it but am not sure where to go with it.
– Windmills. Harp with a piano melody running throughout. The middle part reminds me a little of Dire Straits’ “Private Investigations”. Apologies to Mark Knopfler and pals.
– Untitled. One of my favorite pieces so far. Piano, strings, bass.
Some variations on a theme I’ve had stuck in my head for months, but just cant get to come out right:
- wind – long version– kind of a dreamy loop with a clarinet melody and building strings toward the end
- wind – short version – a little slower version of previous, with saxophone instead of clarinet, no strings
- wind soundtrack – quiet version – similar to previous, but with a kind of “wah-wah” effect
- This is the first / original version (from a previous post): Soundtrack final
Dangling bit dark, looping keyboard piece, adding drums at the end
Come on come on – kind of a cheerful pop instrumental which sounds better on the keyboard than after it was transferred to the computer 🙁
Dark Cave – a short dreamy piece I did to add music to a video taken inside a cave.
Seashore – dreamy, reminiscing, a bit sad. Made as background for our time at the coast. To watch when we’re old.
Wonderful World (Seashore part II) – I wanted to make the video sequence above a bit more cheery, so I came back to this piece at the end. My apologies to the late Mr. Armstrong.
suess3 – just a basic beat I made to accompany our entry in Dr. Seuss’s 50th Anniversary Video Contest for Green Eggs and Ham.
safetydance 2 – another tune for a second entry in the Army’s Safety Video contest. It’s a bit more fast-paced, tries to be a news/tech intro piece.
An “Album” I composed and recorded on my PSP using the game “Beaterator”
1 – Prologue – short flute bit that was originally part of track 2. Theme repeats elsewhere.
2 – Parabolic – slow beat with guitar flourishes that gradually becomes more electronic. I like how it builds in the end.
3 – Ring Of Fear – 120bpm, a bit techno, incorporates “Ring of Fire” and other tunes.
4 – Steppe It Up – Started out a bit central Asian but ended up a bit silly. Incorporates various melodies.
5 – Flying To Kandahar – Kind of funky, actually wrote this while flying to Kandahar. Try that on a C130.
6 – The Matador – Tried to make this a bit Spanish sounding. But with a techno beat.
7 – Funky Bricks – Yes, the riffs from “Brick House” and “Play that Funky Music” do fit together, in case anyone was wondering. With a few others thrown in.
8 – Coastal Wind – Starts out reminding me of the “Prince of Bel-Air” theme. Mellow, but builds.
9 – Ulf Attack – A bit of a Middle-Eastern sound. Average speed.
10 – Fiddler On Crack – What happens when you mix “Fiddler on the Roof” with Beaterator?
11 – Desert Attack – Reminds me a bit of the music for an action film set in one of those “Indiana Jones” settings. Alternates between mellow and intense.
12 – Nomad – Again, a bit of a Middle Eastern flute-techno thing. I like this one. I think it would sound good with proper instruments.
13 – Scuba Steve Blues – Started out with some sounds and a basic beat, and ended up with blues. Don’t know what Scuba Steve has to do with it, except I like Adam Sandler movies.
14 – Dubai – This picks up the prologue again to round everything out. Strong beat, and kinds of mixes together elements from all the pieces above. Written during a flight delay in – guess where?
