Ok, so here it is, my first composition and recording on my 1840s Broadwood Square Piano.
Apologies in advance for it being so mournful and dirge like, and my playing being so wooden – I never claimed to be a pianist. Lack of piano ability is what makes […]
I didn’t think I was going to get anything done at all tonight. I spent most of it battling with installing the EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Silver PLAY Edition (which is even harder to say than it is to type). I already had EWQLSO, but a few months ago they […]
Ok, so I skipped one again. At some point I’ll probably clean up the skipped ones and post them.

I think I was in a funny mood when I started […]
I should probably come up with a better name for this – it’s a pretty boring name as it is, and it doesn’t look like I’ll ever manage it in three hours anyway ;)
Tonight’s piece took just over five hours to produce.
Last week I promised they wouldn’t all […]
