Theatre music

A large fraction of my original compositions are theatrical scores. Most of that music is impossible to release as such, for example due to being live performances (I hope you've had a chance to catch some of them :) Nevertheless, some evergreen pieces have survived in some form:

Nokia ringtones

The files are plain RTTTL. I've used Gnokii to transfer them to the phone.

Note that the melodies are heavily simplified and shortened; while the format is actually quite versatile, there are storage limitations with the phones (as of my Nokia 6110 at least).


I've played: drums, electric bass, kazoo, guitars, harmonica (diatonic), piano/keyboards, recorder, trackers, theremin, trumpet, vocal cords. With wildly varying levels of activity and sophistication (mostly lack of it :)
