◄ Compositions List

Yamaha QY-10


"Semenal Musickal" consists of a flurry of songs I created, input, or lifted when I first got a QY-10 work station and began my journey into computer music via midi. As such these include pieces of sheet music from my youth (or later) I had here and there in my apartment, ideas floating around in my head, and songs that were timely to events happening in the outside world at the time. The album "In Search of Australopithecus Brummicanus" together with this album complete the QY-10 music set (it is all original music, whereas this is not), and in the notes about it I described the immense limitations of the QY-10. All the music was written or devised (perhaps that's a better word) in about 5 months' time.

I put up a lot of samples here, as just revisiting this tinny sounding stuff was pretty interesting for me historically, and I could see the seed of future trends. This may not be a point of interest for anybody else in the universe, but hey, they're not writing this page.
