RETIRED PIECES

Contained here are pieces that have since been retired from my 'official' catalogue of works. While this is not a comprehensive list of retired pieces, these contained herein are ones that I (and some close friends) still remember fondly and enjoy listening to. Overall, they are representitive of the musical direction I was taking at different points in my life. Some of them are still surprisingly good - others (especially the ones from my adolescence) are ridiculous, but show promise (i think).

Clicking on the piece title will bring you information about the piece as well as audio clips. Most of them contain audio. I hope you enjoy. Comments are welcome.
