Wednesday 20th October 2004 - Solis Invictus from Suite Moisés (Lovizol Concerts 30) - - copyright © 2004 Ricardo Frantz (lovizol at terra DOT com dot br), all rights reserved. (9 k, 77 sec)
October 21st 2001 - Underwater Fright - - copyright © 2001 Ron Roos, all rights reserved. A variation on an earlier (and much larger) piece, Underwater Flight (which can be found at, in the September contest archives) ... This one is a single track, GM, and although is not as powerful a piece as the original, still gets the idea across ... this was an experiment to evoke emotion with sound. See what you think. Enjoy! (37 k, 221 sec)
October 21st 1998 - Circus Follies - - a fast, upbeat piece for piano, marimba (or xylophone) and trombone, copyright © 1998 by David Rubenstein. (14 k, 80 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.)


Things in England? (posted by Keith, 9 Jul 2019, 20:22)

Hi Jim,

Difficult to say really ... most people here think we're completely doomed! I'm rushing around doing quite a lot of conducting and arranging music though ...

Good to hear from you.


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
I did this with the traditional MS Paint program
