Over The Misty Mountains Cold (Howard Shore Version on Piano)
For anyone who might be interested in the "Other" version of this song. ;-)

A quick 'rendering' (I learned the music this evening) of the musical theme heard in "The Hobbit" trailer on the piano, with one variation after the main theme. I attempt to convey some of the mood found in the movie (I keep wanting to say 'film'!) version.

An a-capella multi-track attempt can be found here:

Over The Misty Mountains Cold (Original Song for Tolkien's poem from
For anyone interested, you can hear me play the "Howard Shore" version of this song on the grand piano (no singing) at:



This is a rough track - 3 voice (all mine) with MIDI piano & cajon drum - of the original song I wrote last year for J.R.R. Tolkien's poem in "The Hobbit". I sing it lower (d minor instead of e minor) and have made a number of elaborations to the melody in various stanzas. I am working on doing a twelve voice track for this, but that will be a while yet. In the meantime, any constructive comments or suggestions would be welcome ("You suck!" and "The one in the Hobbit Trailer is WAYYYYY better!" don't count.) This is my very first attempt at doing musical multi-tracking & I have lots to learn.

The Sheet music for this (for anyone interested) is available, along with the MIDI & MP3 at:



Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day,
To seek our pale enchanted gold.

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells,
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught,
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day,
To claim our long-forgotten gold.

Goblets they carved there for themselves,
And harps of gold, where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men or elves.

The pines were roaring on the heights,
The wind was moaning in the night,
The fire was red, it flaming spread,
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The bells were ringing in the dale,
And men looked up with faces pale.
The dragon's ire, more fierce than fire,
Laid low their towers and houses frail.

The mountain smoked beneath the moon.
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.
They fled the hall to dying fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.

Far over the Misty Mountains grim,
To dungeons deep and caverns dim,
We must away, ere break of day,
To win our harps and gold from him!

J.R.R. Tolkien

Handel: Sarabande in D Minor, With Variations
A stately dance, somewhat melencholy in mood, with two variations. The fourth movement Sarabande of George Frideric Handel's Keyboard suite in D minor (HWV 437) for solo harpsichord. It's been used in a number of films apparently, including Stanley Kubrick's "Barry Lyndon" (an orchestrated version) and Brian De Palma's "Redacted".

The Miracle On Portage Avenue: A Christmas Poem
This is a reading of a satirical poem I wrote back in the 80's, inspired by a silly remark of a friend of mine. I hope that you will enjoy it this Holiday Season. :-D

The Miracle On Portage Avenue (A Christmas Poem)

I remember, it was a bitter December day,
And I was downtown, visiting the salespeople
Who worked the front of the Family Hamburger House.
The sky was clear, but the traffic was noisy,
And my heart felt like a lump of coal: I was sick,
Sick unto death, of Christmas,
And the relentless, remorseless Christmas music
That tinkled and blared
As I scuffed my way through the pasty brown snow
That had clotted on the sidewalk, when
Sudden in my breats I felt a thrilling,
As though a million notes of music had played themselves upon my heart,
And in a cloud I saw coming a celestial choir,
Thousands of little gray sparrows arrayed in black tuxedo and top-hat,
Carrying tiny music stands.
In a gale of flappings and chirpings,
The natty birds descended on the Trees and the buildings,
The telephone lines and the street lamps,
And there was a silence in the city.
Then in slow crescendo, the Beatific Birds raised
Their plaintive voices into mighty music:
The 'Ode to Joy' from Beethoven's ninth.
Music! that filled the streets and skies
And the little baskets overflowing, overflowing!
Never had my soul felt such a pleasure,
And I found myself singing with them,
As the people around me were. "Christmas!
Miracle of Faith and Life!" I cried, and the birds departed,
Leaving me on the street corner with a confused drug dealer.

Video #666: The Video of the Beast! (With Important Subliminal Messages)
This is my 666th YouTube video, and I thought I should do something a little special for the occasion. :-D

It's not really so much music as an audio experiment - if you like some of the more spacey abstract modern electronic compositions you might like this.

(*The subliminal message is given at around the 20 minute mark in an annotation. :-) )

We Three Kings of Orient (Panflute)
My performance of this old Christmas carol on the panpipes. I tend to prefer the older christmas carols, with a few exceptions.

My apologies for the 'vocalizations' that you might occasionally hear; it comes partly from pumping a lot of air and also from the fact that I produce vibrato by silently (or sometimes not so silently) vibrating my vocal cords.

Twisted Christmas Carols & Other Musical Offerings
A recording of a concert I gave a number of years back at the University Of Wininpeg, where the first half of the program is me playing (somewhat twisted, to varying degrees) improvisations on various Christmas Carols. The second part of the program consists of compositions by myself of a generally non-Christmassy nature. I'm playing on a 7 foot Bosendorfer.

The concert programme is as follows:

Improvisations on 'God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen'
Improvisations on 'Joy to the World' and 'Silver Bells'.
Improvisations on 'We Three Kings'
Improvisations on 'Oh Christmas Tree', Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer' and Oh Little Town of Bethlehem. (this is my favourite of the set)
Improvisations on 'Angels From The Realms of Glory', 'Frosty The Snowman' and 'Jingle Bells' ('Frosty' is the most 'twisted' of the improvisations, at least to start, and 'Jingle Bells' ends up in outer space somehow.)

My Compositions are:

Prelude ("A Japanese Cowboy in Paris') and Gymnopodie #3
Gymnopodies #5 & 6
Gymnopodie #7
Fugue in E Minor

The music is accompanied by semi-random pictures of winter scenes for the first bit, pictures of flowers, skies and scenery for the second bit. I apologize that I haven't taken the time to make the photographs more 'relevant' to the music they accompany, but I hope they are more interesting than a blank screen. :-)

Power Cajon Drum Solo (With Snare - Long Version)
The longer version of me playing my cajon drum with the snares set on, which gives a brighter sound (amongst other things). I play fairly aggressively for the most part; though there are some quieter, slower sections I still am playing with a fairly heavy beat. A lot of experimentation with various rhythmic patterns, tones and types of attack.

Extra-Super Perfectly Cromulent Power Cajon Drum Solo (With Snare - Short Version)
Too tired at the moment to give a blow-by-blow description, but I do start off hitting the drum pretty heavy right away & keep it up for a while.

This video got cut off for some reason, so I'm making it the 'short version'.

I am playing a Heritage Cajon drum, #48.

Perfectly Super-Cromulent Power Cajon Drum Solo (without snare)
A soft intro builds into a louder, more rhythmic pattern. At about the minute mark it becomes very energetic, with a variety of beats and ornaments. I play on various parts of the cajon surface to get different resonances and timbres as well as from different angles to get different types of 'attack'. I slow down somewhat at the 3 minute mark, but the beat is still very strong. At the four minute mark or so the tension lessens & the mood becomes more funky. I spend the last 45 seconds drumming progressively softer and softer, while still varying the timber, attack, ornamentation and so on. Just because I could.

My apologies for the crappy graphic; three uploads of another video (240mb) all failed & I ain't waitin' an hour to see if this one will too!

(And the title? What, don't you agree??? :-O )

Cajon Drum Solo (Without Snare)
I recently bought a Heritage Cajon drum; this one is #48 - 'Purple Haze', I believe. In this video I attempt to demonstrate some of the abilities of the instrument.

It's a very responsive instrument, and can produce a wide variety of sounds, depending on where you hit it, how, and whether the snares are on (in this video I am playing with the snares off). It is like having a drum kit, but much more compact.

The concert grand is giving me that "I can't BELIEVE you are neglecting me for a drum!" look again. :-D

Beethoven: Sonata #11 In B-Flat, 2nd Movement (Adagio molto espressione)
One of my favourite of Beethoven's compositions, though it is not as well known as some of his other ones. It is very gentle and plaintive,almost vulnerable, without so much of the Beethoven ego as is found in some of his other pieces. There is a brief stormy section, but on the whole the mood is a quiet one.

Young Fish Swimming In the Seine River (Winnipeg)
