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…

The Laser Farm Dialogues

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.…

Thank you for the warm welcome, Gav!  Looks like a terrific and friendly forum for composers.  I've resisted joining many forums due to the bickering, mean-spirited discussions, and/or contempt for fellow composers' works, but it seems we won't have to worry about that here :)
