New Wiki site for saxophone repertoire

I have just set up a new WIKI as a ressource to keep us informed of any new pieces written or performed for saxophone.



For those of you unfamiliar with a WIKI, it is an interactive web site which can be edited by many people. The best example of this is Wikipedia.

Some New Material - would like some feedback.

I've recently posted some new material.

A couple of shorts that I did for the MFTM course:

Indianapolis
Raggae Electronica

They are both exactly 1 minute long and are meant to be looped.

And also 4 new installments in a series I am working on based loosely on Tolkien's the Silmirillion

The Dawn
The Long Road Home
Call to War
The Refugees

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Thanks.
