Original Music from the 1990s

In high school I mostly played guitar, and in college I mostly composed music on the computer. Here’s a selection of that work.

Liquid Mazes, 1993 (High school)

I wrote (most) and recorded these songs while in high school. I played guitar, was significantly influenced by Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and JS Bach. “Joy” and “Satch” are probably my favorites. My mom was holding a dieing tape recording the the audience for “Satch”, which is why the speed and pitch both increase slightly over the course of the recording.

Computer Music, college (1995-1997)

Encore music composing software seemed pretty advanced, even over ten years ago, and enabled me to compose some simple multipart pieces. You can listen quickly from the “mid” link (for midi) and see the notation using “ps” or “pdf”. The first two and the last are probably my favorite.

Matt and I worked together on projects in CS 442 Introduction to Parallel Processing in Fall 2006. He’s hosted my site since April, 2007, and there have been terrific benefits. First, the server is beautifully configured and fast, and he’s given me plenty of space. Working with him has allowed me to provide my SISUS software prototype, which is an R package which I haven’t released, yet. He discusses his implementation of the software needed in his blog post. He is quick to respond, works meticulously, and understands the big picture as well as the individual pixels.
