" Hi Rick, a pleasant sounding 70s-ish pop tune. You hit all the correct chords at the correct moments. I did feel that it went on a bit long for song that doesn't seem to vary that much in overall tone or volume. As a suggestion, I think a…"

A delightful piano composition - Peacherine Rag

Posted on December 9, 2014 at 12:47am 0 Comments

I started composing because of the music in the movie "The Sting" - the ragtime of Scott Joplin. His music is not only great sounding, but a fun fit fit for the fingers - physically enjoyable to play. Here's a piece which was not in The Sting, but which is a delightful example of his work - about 3 minutes long -

Another composer has posted recently on the forum about a piece he wrote inspired by French music which is about fountains. I won’t post this on his thread, which is about his composition, but thought you might enjoy it - ragtime composers liked to compose on this theme too, and one of my favorites in this genre is a piece written by a guy named Robert Hampton called “Cataract Rag.” (Cataract is a synonym for Waterfall). The middle section (starting at about 1:50) particularly is delightful…

Hi all,

Joe Wall is a Baltimore composer who does interesting things. I once got to see a multimedia presentation of this piece by him, about how, as a small child, he mused on the satellite program. I've never forgotten it. I find it meditative and hypnotic. I've been looking for it for years online and finally found it. The last few words spoken I particularly find affecting. Hope you like it.…
