Being that I have a fondness in my heart for Vietnamese things, I thought I would look into the traditional music (court music, as it is) of the country. I tried listening at first, but, well, that…Continue

Yesterday in the chat room I had brought up that I had a melody/subject that I had kicking around since my high school days, which is more than twenty years ago. It was suggested that I post it here…Continue

I apologize for the quality, it was recorded through Audacity from MuseScore, and I lost the score from a computer crash, so I will have to re-score it. :-(It is thus far really only thoughts being…Continue

"The reason he needed to do this is because both a trumpet and flugelhorn sound muddy and sloppy in their lower ranges. Thanks, man. Us trumpet players really like when that gets pointed out. Doesn't what I proposed sound a lot like what you…"

"It's very appealing. The simplicity of this kind of music is something Western music lost a long time ago. This music is not unlike the kind of music you'd have heard in ancient Egypt or Rome."

Viet inspired tune

Being that I have a fondness in my heart for Vietnamese things, I thought I would look into the traditional music (court music, as it is) of the country. I tried listening at first, but, well, that was hard as I don't find the music really all that approachable (to my western ears).
