The Bohemian's Progress (demo recording)
I made this recording of The Bohemian's Progress while rehearsing with Mac Talla Quartet the other day.  It's not super-high quality, but it should give you an idea of what I can do when I apply myself to music composition.  This piece was commissioned by FreeFlow Dance studio from Saskatoon, SK, and (fingers crossed) will soon have some kind of a Playford-fusion solo dance routine.  

This is a reworking of three 17th-century dance tunes.  One of the great things about living in this modern age is that we have auditory access to centuries of musical styles.  If I wish, I can take these old folk tunes, and infuse them with some early German romanticism, some French impressionism, some Soviet dissonance, and maybe even some power-chords.  That's exactly what I did here.  

The lyrics halfway through are a verse from "I'll never love Thee more", by James Graham, Marquis of Montrose.

Please enjoy.
