Tooting my, er, horn

Actually, it's more like tooting my flute, violin, and viola at the same time, but I just put a virtual recording of a rather spooky piece I finished last week called Crepuscule, Interlude, and Dance on my new music jukebox page just in time for Halloween.

Yes, the recording is computer generated. Some day I want to make a recording of it by over dubbing all three instruments. I'm not quite sure which version would be more realistic.

I like it, especially the outer movements. I'd love to hear it with real instruments. The end of the third movement caught me a little bit by surprise, but I imagine I'd probably hear it differently with real performers playing it.

Thank goodness music generating machines are inferior to real performers when it comes to anything beyond the pitches, rhythms, basic articulations, and dynamics!

The music should be available from Seesaw Music in a few months (or maybe even sooner).

I really like that. I wish I knew enough about music to identify what I like about different pieces. The spookiness is fun, and the way the melodies interact. It sounds like a mix of modern and Baroque styles to me.
