Graduate School Years Album

Below are recordings of my graduate school compositions (incomplete).

I consider my graduate school compositions to be my best. Unfortunately, most of them are lost. Around 1996, I had a terrible computer accident and lost over 80 songs I had written down, from late 80's to then. I became very depressed. Although I continued composing, I adopted the attitude music is best when played and composed ephermally. That is, I compose for the sake of composing - not for posterity's sake. That led to some of my best compositions. That also meant many of those compositions are gone. I had to forget those pieces to compose more. And in time, I do truly forget... Neverthless, I do have some takes on tape of some of the themes. This summer (2005), I'll see if I can reconstruct some of them.

In the mean time, thank you for visiting. And please enjoy what I have on already.
