FROM THE MIDI DIARY ARCHIVES:
18th June 2004 - Balance - - copyright © 2004 Keith Bramich, all rights reserved. (4 k, 57 sec)
June 19th 2001 - Kidsongs - by Jim Taylor. Copyright © 2001 James K Taylor, all rights reserved. Here's one we all played if we took piano lessons, or knew someone who did. These little songs use only the black keys, and many self-taught piano players start making up songs with just the black keys. An example of this is the opening of the song Those Were The Days, the theme song to the TV show All In The Family. I think piano teachers use this song to keep kids from being afraid of playing songs with lots of sharps and/or flats. (16 k, 109 sec)
June 19th 1998 - Spaces - from Three pieces in memory of Ken Mitchard (10 k, 240 sec)
(From 19 November 1997 until 18 November 2006 we featured one new original MIDI file each day - there are well over 3000 of these, and we'll feature some different ones each day. These are all smallish MIDI files, and suitable for downloading quickly via dial-up connections.)

Thanks Keith (posted by Jim Taylor, 7 Jun 2019, 09:38)
|Hey Keith. How are things in England? I just turned 73 May 21, and every now and then, I start to think I am becoming mature. Shudder. Someday, if I actually retire, I will get back to composing. I am a retired band director, but I drive the school bus (am doing summer school this summer) and leading the music at an awesome little country church.|
Good to hear from you
a brain on music
Credit difficult with MIDI Diary (posted by Keith, 6 Jun 2019, 08:50)
|Actually, Jim, it's quite difficult to submit pieces by other composers here - it's really just set up to accept original new music.|
I think I'm guilty of something similar, by the way, when I submitted my 'Hallelujah Grotesque' - it's based (obviously) on a piece by G F Handel and I don't think I mentioned that.
Good to hear from you again here, anyhow. Just listening again to your amazing 'Basso Continuo' from the MIDI Diary Archives!
