Dan's The Man (6' 21") - Ref. 1605

Themes from "Tubular Bells, Part 1" (ProX Audio Version) (18' 35") - Ref. 1609
For CD10 I spent several months midifying the basic themes of Mike Oldfield's classic work as a homage to the piece of music that inspired my interest in music composition in the first place.  I use the word "themes" since it is impossible to transcribe all the various elements of the piece without an original score. The CD10 version was pure Korg ProX sequencer. This version is composed of more than 65 separately recorded audio tracks. Too many instruments and changes to key and tempo to mention, and difficult to mix.

Camille, Merci (Un Petit Cadeau) (3' 26") - Ref. 1612
A little thank you (un petit cadeau) for my French teacher. Hopefully this sounds better than my French pronunciation! Nylon, jazz and steel-stringed guitars, oboe and flute leads, strings, and not forgetting the ubiquitous French squeeze: mwah, mwah, mwah, darling.
Bridge provided by an EP - 116 bpm, 4/4 time
Father Christmas (ProX Mix) (3' 18") - Ref. 1613
A version of Greg Lake's Christmas single arranged for Christmas 2006.
