'Worse Than My Byte'
ore computer music, created in GarageBand: the title should give you a clue as to its style. The beauty of this and similar programs is that, even though I'm out of practice and my fingers are stiff, I can create music by recording in sections and at slower speeds, and build up the effect I want. Here we have a jazzy little fugue for six instruments - not written down, but improvised a small bit at a time. In fact if you examined the fugue carefully it wouldn't really hold up - the lowest two lines are simpler than a real fugue should be - but it's just for fun: partially inspired by Alec Templeton's Bach Goes To Town (which you can hear on my latest podcast).
I have posted two versions of the fugue on the 'MacJams' site (which showcases home-made computer music):
A version with rhythm backing
And one without.
