Music is often separated from the other arts, but that will not be the case here. I have a few compositions I plan to record and would like to share and, since a dedicated site for them is unwarranted, they will appear in this music “gallery” in ART @ CHC.
I ask only that, if you care to listen, please avoid playing on laptop speakers. Even earbuds are better! Thanks.

The first recording I’m sharing here is a composition I wrote sometime in the mid-1970s. It was a staple of my home piano-playing sessions, and over time I developed a number of variations on the tune to forestall boredom. I finally recorded the piano track on our Yamaha U1 upright in February 2016, for a future CD for my spouse. In February 2020, I dusted off this track and added other digital instruments to the mix. The analog and digital performances, the arrangement and the mix are all mine and the end result is not mistake-free. It is, however, good enough for me and I have spent enough time on it — probably a month.
I once wrote a few lyrics for this song but never really developed them.
