"Drone in D"

Instruments: Piano, Synth

Feel: Calming, Relaxed

A very long piece of highly relaxing music - done as mostly a piano impromptu over a simple drone (very long note). The piece is in the key of D... mostly. (usually, there is an F sharp and C sharp - this uses an F sharp and B flat... there is no name for this that I know of)

"Promises to Keep"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Somber, Uplifting

Slow impromptu for solo piano. A little hopeful, a little sorrowful... I'm sure there is a word for this feeling, but I don't know it.

"Sovereign Quarter"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Dark

A re-recording of an older piece of mine on a new sample set of a Steinway Model D. This one is tuned to Quarter Comma Meantone (and not standard Equal Temperament). In this piece, it gives an unerringly warm feel, as the notes that would be least in tune in this are never used.

"Impromptu in Blue"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Eerie, Mysterious, Unnerving

Impromptu performed on a Steinway Model D tuned to Quarter Comma Meantone. In this piece the most out-of-tune notes give it a feel that is not often heard in contemporary piano music.

"Impromptu in Quarter Comma Meantone"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Eerie, Somber

Impromptu performed on a Steinway Model D tuned to Quarter Comma Meantone. This gives a very rich feel to the base chords, but leaves a couple of "wolf notes" in the gaps (most notably in the Ab). 2 minutes in, it lingers on the most out-of tune part of the scales.
