I've got tens of compositions (and transcriptions and arrangements) stocked up, so I'll slowly be publishing them on Musescore. You can listen to my works on Musescore's website (the audio will not be mastered there). I will not be publishing my pieces in order of composition. If enough of you request downloadable files, I'll start stocking up my Google Drive.
Very nearly all my pieces are for solo piano--it's at the point where I have piano versions of songs I eventually want to transcribe for bands.Compositions on Musescorehttps://musescore.com/user/9996931/sets/2213611ClassicalMarche-Sonate
It's a march, complete with repeats. Wait...no...why isn't it going into a trio? No! Noooooo! It's actually a sonata-allegro! ...That really sounds like a march.Little March
Switch from Marche-Sonate at the correct time to this song, then back, and--all of a sudden--the combined songs really are a march!Scherzo Infernale
A blazing fast standalone scherzo and trio, this is rather heavily influenced by Alkan's Scherzo Diabolico.Out of Strife (Comes Hope)
As seen in its subtitle, this march is strongly influenced by Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance marches, particularly his 3rd such march. But unlike that march, Out of Strife (Comes Hope) ends victoriously!
Despite being subtitled as a piano solo version, no other arrangements of this piece currently exist.Fire and Ice Polka
Composed in the style of the Strauss family's polka(-schnell)s, this polka(-schnell) aims to be a crowd-pleaser.Trumpet Exercise
...This is more here for the sake of completion than anything, but this exercise to improve trumpet embouchure (without changing fingering) is one of my first attempts to write for instruments other than the piano.Bad-Tempered Dances
One of my earlier pieces, this bad-tempered rondo contains a series of dances.Bell Carol
Named because of its resemblance to fast renditions of Carol of the Bells, this is one of the earliest pieces I composed. The central section is significantly slower than the flanking sections, though.Piano Sonata in D Minor ("Piecemeal")
Etude in D Minor ("Eil Ton")
Movement 1: Inexorable
The weightiest of the four movements and the latest to be composed, this sonata-allegro is more than 9 minutes long counting repeats. It is stern and, while turning towards happiness, inexorably marches to its doom.Movement 2: Rondo Oscuro
The first movement to be composed--and the only one I ever publicly performed--this rondo emerges from the shadows with a simple first theme and explores various other moods.Movement 3
This is a simple, old-fashioned minuet with a rollicking trio.Movement 4: Tribute
This sonata-allegro is actually a tribute to Super Paper Mario. While not actually using any of its music (as I had not listened to the soundtrack at the time), it contains leitmotifs for several important characters and roughly outlines the plot of the game.
This colourful piano etude depicts tumultuously flying over crashing waves. Practice your arpeggios and chords at once with this etude!Sonatina in C Major ("Pastorale")
Another of my earliest pieces, this is soothing and cheerful fare.Sonatina in F Major ("Classical")
If you're into thoroughly classical music, this typical sonata-allegro is for you. This is one of my earlier works.Piano Sonata in E Minor ("Scherzando") (Unfinished)
Suite in E Flat (Unfinished)
This is an aggressive, scherzo-like sonata-allegro. It starts with a jolt to attention--stark chords, followed by a daring flurry of ascending notes. Perhaps its second theme group, which initially appears in G major, is the call of the Wild Hunt. The Wild Hunt takes an even darker turn by the end of this piece.Movement 3
This scherzo and trio is affable and genial.
Kids On the Monkey Bars
Movement 2: Hidden Royal
With many mood changes, this sonata-allegro depicts the story of a prince who attempts to explore his kingdom incognito, only to see his royal status exposed in front of everyone, including the lover he had met on one of his incognito trips. Eventually, he accepts both his royal duties and his strong desire for freedom (the reason he tried exploring incognito in the first place).Movement 3: Chargers
Depicting the wild rides of a knight and his companion fairy, this is a rough scherzo with a sprightly trio.
This experimental piece depicts children singing (badly) as they play on the monkey bars.Piano Sonata in F Major ("Cosmos") (Unfinished)
Funeral March No. 1 in B Flat Minor
Movement 1: Sun
This enthusiastic sonata-allegro depicts the sun.Movement 3: Stars
This fleet-footed scherzo and double trio depicts the stars.
This is a stark and tortured funeral march with a lyrical, slightly troubled trio.Angry Dance
More of a dance excerpt than anything else, this angry dance is the result of accepting a challenge to compose something with exactly 100 notes in it.Song Without Words No. 1
Like Felix Mendelssohn's Songs Without Words, this is a short, song-like piano piece. Its genial melodies are reminiscent of Christmas carols.King Thrushbeard
Composed for a contest in https://musescore.com/groups/soloinstrumentchampionships/discuss/2653921
, this piece for solo bass clarinet depicts the Brothers Grimm fairy tale of King Thrushbeard.Tarantella No. 1 in C Minor
This snappy tarantella in sonata-rondo form constantly plays with its sense of key.March of the Empire
Depicting an evil empire and a rebel force that hopes to beat it, this march boasts impressive power and emotional range, but it should be within reach of intermediate to early advanced pianists.The Abyss
Yet another of my earliest pieces, this brief tone poem depicts the calm of the deep sea.A Sonata-Allegro in Under 2 Minutes
Exactly as advertised, this especially swift and terse piece fits an entire sonata-allegro in less than 2 minutes, including repeats.Rocket Piece No. 1
One of my earliest pieces, this sonatina starts off with a Mannheim rocket theme and is paired with Rocket Piece No. 2.Rocket Piece No. 2
One of my earliest pieces, this rondo starts off with a Mannheim rocket theme and is paired with Rocket Piece No. 1.Etude-Coronation March in G Major
This coronation march of a piano etude focuses on beat subdivision.Concert Band & Marching BandPercussive March
An unorthodox march in rondo form, this march is strongly reminiscent of 20th-21st-century concert band music...and ends up near-quoting 2 too many other works, IMO.
Despite being subtitled as a piano transcription, the concert band version of this piece currently does not exist.Daring March
Another unorthodox--perhaps daring
--march, this is in unconventional instrumentation and not-quite-conventional form.RagtimeImprov Rag
The first rag I ever composed (but the second I ever published), this is strongly influenced by Joplin's famous rags. ...Except for the fourth strain, which is strongly influenced by tap dance music and "This Land Is Your Land".(Mottled) Penny Rag
The second rag I ever composed, this starts off sounding like silent film music but broadens emotionally as it progresses. Eventually, it returns to the first strain, but by then, it is broken and forever changed.Unseelie Rag
The third rag I ever composed, this evokes images of daring, mischievous, even malicious fairies. Its incredibly fast passagework reveals influences from both Felix Mendelssohn and George Gershwin.D-Reamy D-Rag
A slow drag, the influences on this rag are less clear than in several of my other rags...except in the third strain, which sounds like tangos and flamenco music.The Other Ragtime March
What do you get when you cross a rag and a march? This!Sonata-Rag
What do you get when you cross a rag and a sonata-allegro? This!Alien Briar Rag
Beware: this rag is full of bizarre, striking, and utterly alien chord progressions.Simplicity Rag
An easy rag for relative beginners, this is meant to be sight-readable at full speed.Seelie Rag
Perhaps evoking images of considerate, reasonable fairies, this rag also involves incredibly fast passagework--this time in a highly jazz-like manner.Alpha Bravo Foxtrot
This swift foxtrot conjures a slightly military atmosphere, and it even attempts to strafe the listener at one point.Ragtime Evening
A purposeful return to old-style, Scott Joplin-like rags, this piece is a serenade of a rag.JazzTook 5 to the Wing
The first full jazz piece I ever composed (but nowhere near close to the first I ever made themes for), this is rather like an improvisation on the chord progression that Ridley and Meta Knight's themes share in the style of the Dave Brubeck Quartet's "Take Five".Rock/Metal (Includes Crossovers)It's Only Us Together
Rock? Pop? Latin? Does this song even care what genre it's in? It struts and sways around exotic harmonies and rollicking rhythms regardless.Toccata No. 1 in E Minor ("Alla Metal")
Beware: as a classical-metal crossover piece, this is pretty unpleasant-sounding, especially if you're not used to listening to heavy metal.Regressive Form
The "Regressive Form" in the title is sonata-allegro form, but that's the only thing that's classical about this heavy metal piece.Video Game Music Loops (With Special OST Endings)Thunder On Boss (Boss Theme)
A generic boss theme for a hypothetical video game that does not (yet) exist, this is sure to fire up all player characters in-game! (Final, bonus, and special semi-final boss themes I compose will convey some of the personality of the boss.) Bars 79-111 (everything after the repeat) are the OST-only ending.
Despite being subtitled as a piano transcription, no other arrangements of this piece currently exist.Theme of the Light Warrior (Special Boss Theme)
A special boss theme for a fan character I made, this is the first video game theme I ever composed, which is why it sounds like classical music. Bars 45-72 (everything after the repeat) are the OST-only ending.
Despite being subtitled as a piano transcription, no other arrangements of this piece currently exist.Out and About (Overworld Theme)
A first/Level 1 overworld theme for a hypothetical video game that does not (yet) exist, this march-like theme goes for a grand, orchestral feel. Bars 61-93 (everything after the repeat) are the OST-only ending.
Despite being subtitled as a piano transcription, no other arrangements of this piece currently exist.Fraught Forest (Special Level Theme)
This is a dark forest level theme for a hypothetical video game that does not yet exist. This forest is supposed to make you feel tense, uneasy, and agitated.
Despite being subtitled as a piano transcription, no other arrangements of this piece currently exist.
