Kirby Park

24 Nov 2005

Kirby Park Opus 3, Composed July 2005. Kirby Park runs along the Susquehanna River in Kingston, PA. Its many intriguing nooks and crannies, along with the memories I have of the place, call for a bit more of an experimental effort than the other tunes posted here so far. The piece has definite ragtime roots, some references to blues, some nice rich 10ths here and there that sort of remind me of Errol, a bit of showiness, unusual modulations, maybe a little drama, a good bit of reflection, and I also threw in a few rather ethereal phrases here and there that are reminiscent to me of the fascinating composer Louis Alter. In other words, it's a complete mess compositionally... I'm not really happy or proud of this one for many reasons (even if there are a few moments of inspiration herein), but it is what it is. Let’s see, I believe we start out in Bb, switch to Db for a bit, and then finish off in Ab. Give it a listen. What else do you have to do for three minutes and thirty-eight seconds?!
