Very cool...
Love the use of the whole tone scale.... and parallel movement. Nice work!

although there is some whole tone scales here and there, mostly my goal was trying to avoid traditional intervals and cadences (although a couple slipped in).

i started from a one hand ad lib improv and cut and pasted it into its final form.

thanks

Hey Bill, the "ice"olated piano works for me! Appropriately sparse.

i tried to be very conservative on reverb due to a recent comment from Drakonis on another song.

thanks

Thanks

that's the term i was looking for: tone poem.

like i said to lunatrick, i was trying to avoid the usual harmonic things, i even tried to abandon rhythmic regularity as well

thank you

i guess the tonality is the ice, and the rhythm is that ice breaking tree limbs at random.

yeah, that's it. :-)

Excellent performance Bill!
Really wonderful piece in true twentieth century style. Really enjoyed this. Can you do an entire suite please?

it wasn't actually performed, it was more like assembled i guess - the original midi recording had far less content than the outcome.

an entire suite? hmmm... maybe. i'll keep that in mind and see if it happens.

thank you

Rich track
Appropriately chilly and still. I wish it were twice as long, though.

Cheers,

i kind of squeezed as much as i could from the small amount of material i had. i suspect that twice as long would be 4 times harder to do - but who knows? i was also concerned that the longer it runs, the more likely it would become tiresome - there is no cohesiveness, like a repeating motif or anything.

but maybe i should explore this style a bit more?

thanks

Sorry...
...your music is great, but your titles are too frightening...

Gotta go buy extra milk and candles and bring in some more wood...

I love it when musicians are able to step outside various conventions and still be a really sweet listen, very accessible...I think you've done that here.

i think the ice storm may have left a lasting impression on my granddaughter - maybe it will be her first lifetime memory

OK, i named my next one something innocuous, even though it is frightening

thanks
