It seems that music can just be played or arranged better and better
as time goes by, not to mention the variations on themes and musical characteristics
produced with different instrumentation. As all songs are continuously
"upgraded" or edited into an improved standard of performance, each
published song includes the edition number at the end of the name.
All edition versions of
each song will be made available for music studies when the time is
right, as well as manuscripts produced if I get around to it.
I am still having fun with
the technology 'at my fingertips', though I have long ago given up
the idea that I will "make money" from the
activity. "It ain't Rock and Roll"...... But it's making
many people feel good,
and that's what matters to me the most.
unfortunately - as the case may be.... I have composed well over
2000 pieces of worthwhile music but due to the complexity and
dare I say it, the sophistication of many of the pieces... and
due to an absence of time, space and various forms of support
many people in "creative" positions often find themselves in
need of and seriously lacking, I have given myself a task that
is virtually impossible to complete in my lifetime.
The editing and various
production levels relating to each piece of music demands more
years than this body of mine will facilitate... Unless I am
somehow freed from various shackles through luck, divine
intervention, or some kind of super-resourcefulness, I am going
to have to choose my more favoured pieces to complete and
release before time runs out. I estimated some time ago that I
had till around 2022. Since that time I met my over 80 year old
father after a 55 year separation and I suspect I might have
more time than I thought.
Whether people thought
my prediction (written up on page 01) was a psychic flash or the
roll of a dice. I was actually calculating available time based on health
and other factors and thought that it was about right to be
ready for the "divine intervention" thing to "do its thing" by that
time. My newly re-discovered father of over 84 years of age, may have encouraged me to re calculate, but
sometimes a flash may be more than just calculation when one has
any connection with the outer or inner "realms" at all.
The editing stages of
each piece of music has to do with the nature of the composition
method.... ad lib. And this method has rather a heavy dependency
on how one is feeling at the time and what is impinging on one
also. Being free from restimulation is the ideal state. I wonder that I might have left it a bit late to do with
each piece what I would like to. But I will keep at it as
long as I can.
I don't know really
what makes it so important to me to do this project before
dropping the body, and perhaps I am not meant to know before the
right time. As I get "older" I wonder and marvel at what
motivations one experiences as a human being throughout ones
life, and I have a suspicion that motivation in relation to
art is more worthwhile for oneself as a soul, and thus of value
to others. Really great composers such as Handel, Beethoven and
others in this category seem to
have demonstrated this pretty well.
So enjoy each piece and
even each song version till the final version is left to you not
too far off in the future.... I will try to tool up and get back
to do some more work when I can... If I am meant to.... LOL
