Curry de la baroque

Get Flash to see this player.

I had named this one 'September 2000' in lack of anything better. That was a peroid (a happy one) when I was penciling music with the great app 'Melody Assistant'.

Of the few available instruments, the organ was especially appealing and I remeber I started experimenting with that when I first got Melody Assistant. And then this composition came out. I figured the melodies out on the guitar and then pencilled in the notes.

The Melody Assistant version I had can't be used on OS X so this version is fixed, can't make any edits on the Mac I have now.

I love the music by Johann Sebastian Bach, and I hope he would forgive me this one. Of course I have drawn much from him but I am sure he would have done it in another way. Guess I am breaking a couple of hundred baroque composition rules here which I am totally unaware of. (Maybe ComposerClark and others can hear this).

Anyway, not knowing which rules eventually are violated, after seven years I still find the piece enjoyable .. even my critical self.

Photo: A baroque organ. "The former Benedictine monastery Reichenbach-organ". Found it on flickr.com (or maybe I stole it, didn't find any rules .. anyone who knows?)

I recently tried to transfer a favourite (and mercifully short) piano piece to midi from the printed score via the pencil tool in Logic and found it almost impossible to do successfully. So ... I am impressed that you were able to get this from guitar to midi via the same path.

Musically, it is very sombre, and understandably doesn't have the life and sparkle that your music has on the guitar. But, considering the medium, this is a good piece of work. Congratulations on leaving the square :)

Curry style organ!
I admire anyone who has the patience to do a whole piece consisting of penciled in notes. That in itself is an accomplishment. Doing it well is even nicer. i know nothing about Baroque and how it should sound, but this sounds good to me! :-)

King of instruments
Sounds grand, Curry! Very nice writing, I really like your pedal countermelody in the bass, and rich chords & progressions, very satisfying piece of music... and it SOUNDS like it was written for an organ, as opposed to a guitarist just plopping a guitar piece onto an organ. You also show such variety in your skill! The ending was fun. The only thing about the ending I didn't like was the fade on the last held note... I'd have preferred that the notes stopped abruptly after the long hold, so you could hear the reverberating echoes die slowly away in ithe cathedral :-)

So, I have the MacOSX version of Harmony Assistant, do you want to send me the old Melody Assistant file, and I'll export it to MIDI/GarageBand for you? I think Harmony Asst. will read old Melody Asst. files.

That "footstep" in the bass...
...makes this sound like a processional... I can imagine monks or priests filing into the church in step with a piece like this...

There are bits of this with a "Bach-ish" flavor, but there are other, distinctly non-Bach flavors in this that I don't have the musical vocabulary or training to describe...

I have noticed that a number of MacJammers who are known for a primary style or idiom that is "their thing" also have secondary, tributary streams of creative effort that they enjoy doing that feed into that main outlet, however circuitously. So even though I will admit that my greatest love is for your guitar pieces, I totally get why you would spend time penciling in a composition like this, or sampling a honey jar, and I enjoy hearing other aspects of your musical mind... which is a very musical mind, indeed...

It reminded me of far more of Albinoni's adagio in G minor especially in the base line than of J.C. Bach. Whatever its inspiration it was a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for sharing this lovely piece with us.

This is you all over Curry (It is amazing how you can get your guitar to sound like a church organ :-).
I could listen to this all night!
So impressive!
Thanks Johannes

Guitar player since 11. Can't play other instruments than acoustic guitars, well maybe aside from instruments that are tuned the same way; like ukulele or bass guitar. In younger years I took inspiration from classical guitar, American acoustic... [see more]
