The above tracks are generally for high quality headphones and not for loudspeakers

Mystical Suite contains nine ballet scenes depicting various mystical phenomena. See the links below for details.

Musical joke Christmas Toys Fighting and Climbing up the Christmas Tree is a small and scary 5.5 min. ballet-phantasmagoria, where sparkling Christmas Toys dance, compete and fight for being perched on the most beautiful places of the Christmas Tree. It includes comical mobilization scenes, tread and horror of broken toys, beautiful kitsch-dance of the toys on the Tree branches, and winning apotheosis of the perched figures.

Only after completing this track I realized that

this joke is about musicians fighting and climbing up the media attention,

about university scientists fighting for the recognition of their results,

about businessmen fighting and climbing up the financial pyramid, about ...

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
My occupation "for living" is mathematics and computer science. As a musician, I am more a pianist-improviser, depicting current mood and impressions, than a composer writing music in a cold mind status with strict calculations of the music form, texture and harmony. I find many musical inspirations in a scientific research, and sometimes vice versa. Presenting my compositions here, I am looking for a feedback and for ideas how to improve the quality of the music, better organize the improvisation sessions, develop and apply specific tracks etc.

In 2010-2011 I received several awards in the prestigious "Song of the Year" songwriting competition:

Mathematics!? Computer Programming!? Piano Improvisation!? You've just made a friend! I look forward to opening a dialog with you.

Thanks Andrew ! You give me a lot of encouragement and I´m glad that you like the piece . I always find it difficult to analyze what happens in me when I´m writing . In this piece I was subconsciusly influenced by Xenakis : Persepolis and a poem by Joseph Brodsky : December in Forence :  I wish You all the best my friend . Caj .

Andrew ! Long Orbit nearly gave some kind of dizziness , in a positive way . It´s so far from my musical thinking ( just now ) but I like it very much .  Be well my friend . Caj .

Actually my 'jazz' is some sort of twisted version of jazz- 'fake jazz'. Ha! Whatever it is, I am having fun!

I'd like to hear something similar to Two Jazzmen, which is interesting, but with pauses and a swinging jazz rhythm. :)

Thanks Andrew ! I now decided to never let any of my accounts to "save" my passwords. And also take care of the other advices. Interressting how you experience music . The thinking on music as "sound" has gone deep in to me ( for ex Gerard Griseys thoughts and music ). Thanks again. Caj.

Thanks Anrdew, I have done as You said :an external drive where I´m put all my scores and music ( not connected to internet) . Another thing , I like the use of microintervals but I don´t know how to calculate all the overtones ( in notation ). All I have read about it goes over my head (I´m very bad at matematic). Is there any other way to calculate overtones from a single note ?   Be well Caj.

Useful MIDI connector between different applications

Bome's MIDI translator -- I found this in another forum (Cockos's Reaper). It allows to easily join different DAWs, sequencers and everything related to MIDI, into a single rig with architecture and event logic which you define.For example, you can build a rig, where you conduct a mechanical DAW-performance of your score in real time using computer keyboard keys and/or mouse: changing a tempo, making accents, switching instruments and expressions etc.  See More

Non-zero budget studio options?

With my current DAW and (mainly hardware) synths I plan to expand this studio, including its hardware and software components. The number of publicly available options is overwhelming. What are the main differences in most popular DAW, software synths, and audio and MIDI hardware, from your experience? I do not speak of VSTi-s, which are generally well demonstrated and discussed in Youtube; I do not speak of zero-budget options too, since they are thoroughly analyzed in another…See More
