Music

Original compositions

Vocal arrangements

Number 5 (2004-2006):
Wind quartet version
Piano version
Beware the unusual key signature (B flat, E flat, C sharp, F sharp), though in practice it almost sounds like G minor...
This piece is rather somber, with contrapuntal, Bach and Romantic influences.
Listen to the piano version (ogg file, 4Mo)
Number 4 (June 2003)
Little aria for cello (key signature: B flat, F sharp, G sharp).
Number 3 (January 2003)
Tonal piece using the Arabic scale in a classical setting (key signature: G sharp, D sharp).
Listen to the first few bars (ogg file)
Number 2 (April 2001)
Easy to listen, a play on the flexibility of the blues scale.
Listen to the first few bars (ogg file)
Number 1 (April 1996)
Somewhat reminiscent of rag-time, with a lot of modulations.
Listen to the first few bars (ogg file)
Number 0 (June 1994)
Among my first; markedly more basic and romantic.
Number -1 (1991/1992, I forgot the exact time...)
First half-decent piece, an unfinished boogie.
