LFO Orchestra Vol.1

If you haven't figured out what LFO stands for, figure it out. I won't tell. Obviously it's all me. Vol.1 being the beginning. I actually created these in an effort to learn. I'd play the tapes in my car and criticize myself. As time went by, I learned to dislike what I had done more and more. I started out LOVING everything I did. Now I'm out of that mode, thank goodness. VOLUME I takes two cds. Only one cd is needed for MP3 files.
You be the judge!

My eternal thanks goes to my friends, (in alphabetic order)
Reid Carter, Ira Gorden, Lynn Milano, Rani Reeve, Furman Simmons, Paul Smiles and many others.

And of course,I could not have done this without the support of my wife Sue, my son Bruce, and my daughter Melissa for helping me to keep the faith.
This web site is dedicated to them.

For an out of date incomplete list of midi files click here .

All of the following are available as midi, printed music or recorded on cd. The cd sounds like the Mp3 files.

All of the midi files on this server are modified and somewhat abbreviated. There is enough of each song (about 20 measures) to give you a feel for what they are like.

This is a set of improvised tunes. Playing time is about an hour. All of these songs are available in midi format. Hardware used was Proteus I, Proteus II plus Roland's Sound Canvas.
The midi files have been converted to (G)eneral (M)idi for your sound card.
All the mp3 files are recordings of the songs using my synths.
The cd sound is naturally better than the mp3 files

Goodnight Farewell was the very first midi I ever created. Yamaha Keyboard Only!
No Computer.
After thirty years of not playing, writing, not even listening to music,
I was talked into trying by a VERY GOOD Friend... Paul Smiles.
At this point in my life I owned and operated a computer shop and warehouse.
Electronics got me out of the music business!, and then back into it.
