I have now begun putting some of my music compositions on my website, and currently there are five short pieces and my third piano sonata available for listening, or, if you play piano, a link to where scores can be purchased. If nothing else, they are different, and for skilled pianists there is the opportunity to give a world premier performance of something. The computer-generated sound is not without problems. For some reason, while it does well with accel., it hopelessly overdoes rit and ral. In the first movement of the sonata, it badly underdoes the sforzandos, and it ignores repeats, which is not necessarily bad. However, it gives some idea how I amuse myself. Listen at
From February 10 – 17, Scaevola’s Triumph will be discounted to 99c/99p on amazon.com and amazon.uk.
So far, the bizarre prophecy has worked, and Scaevola finds himself on a technically advanced alien planet where he is considered a primitive, yet it is losing a war. According to Pallas Athene, only he can save this civilization from extermination, and his use of strategy is needed to win this war. But what can he do, when at first he cannot even open the door to his apartment? A story of strategy and tactics in an interstellar war under relativistic physics. If you set off on a mission, when you return everyone who sent you is long dead. Book III of a series. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O0GS7LO
And now for the something different. A side hobby of mine is composing music, and I like to amuse myself by playing it, not necessarily very well. Anyway, I have decided to make some of what I play to myself available in case anyone is interested. Go to https://ianmiller.co.nz/music then scroll to the bottom. I have listed in what I call Suite number 2 six short piano pieces that I like to play. The only connection, apart from being short, is they are in different time signatures, thus try number 5, in 5/4 time. Click on them and it takes you to a sheet music sale site, but it also has .mp3 files you can listen to.
