This piano piece called "Legend of the Argonauts" is written in the classical style by composer Keith Theodosiou.
Michael Fonos from Poland has composed a selection of midi tracks, some inspired by fantasy books or imaginary films.
Ragtime continues to be a popular choice of music, and we are please to present an original two-step rag:
And here is a reminder of another original rag in our catalogue:
The following MIDI files have been contributed by Mike Sekuloff from Canada. They appear to be both ambient and programmatic in nature, perhaps best described as "Stream of Consciousness", borrowing stylistically from Classical, Film and World genres. More music by Mike is available from his mp3.com site.
Here are some interesting Progressive MIDI tracks sent in by Jared Boice:
This promising piece by Martin is best described as a soundtrack in the cult horror fantasy genre. Martin is also developing a suitable screen-play.
Since quite a lot of the original music on this site is by Jim Paterson, the works have been grouped by category.
Jim Paterson, who maintains the mfiles web-site, has recently been composing music for mobile phone games. Many of the latest mobile phones are "polyphonic" and can play music in midi format. Jim's article about some of the issues facing such composers was published by "Midlet-Review". The following midi files have not been used in any games but represent examples of typical midi loops for Games. Please note that the balance has been adjusted to compensate for the relative weakness of bass sounds from the small speakers used in mobile phones.
These are themes suitable for use as background music or title tracks for film, TV or radio.
This is a very broad category including Jazz, Ragtime, Blues, Gospel and related styles of music.
This set of tunes may suggest various folk music styles from around the world including the likes of Latin or particularly Celtic music (no surprise given Jim's nationality).
Music in this category has something of a pop beat to it.
These works are suitable for particular occasions, or are works in a classical style suitable as pieces for the music student, at easy or moderate levels of difficulty.
