UMOs

Unidentified Musical Objects. Sometimes there seems no category available. Many fantasies and rhapsodies would qualify as UMOs. Anytime I begin a new composition, it takes on a life of its own, and I never know where it is going to end up. I may try to provide a nurturing environment and give it a good education, but the eventual outcome is not so easy to predict. Often the composition goes entirely astray, exiling itself entirely from the realms of music. Of course, those pieces are never allowed on this site, as they would offend the other more civilized ones. However, the more tolerable oddballs will end up here.


Smith’s Reef

This is snorkeling music. There is a dearth of material in that genre as near as I can tell.

Raggish Rondo

This one escaped from an earlier attempt at a Fantasy and has resisted all attempts to coax it into a known form. We have decided that it can be whatever it wants as long as it stays here.
