New song: Thumos

Well, it was about time I added something to this website – I’ve been so busy at work that my free time has been limited to making a website that is work-related (I will unveil it to the world if I get permission from Loyens & Loeff – although it’s clearly my creation, it would go against the code of conduct to publish it without obtaining permission) and to weekends.

I have been working on what was meant to be a concerto-like orchestral piece, with a piano melody as centrepiece, but the music evolved away from the orchestral setting.

I therefore present to you Thumos, the latest creation of the Peter Craddock music factory.

In other news, I have finally taken the opportunity to put all of my music in Creative Commons. The current licence is “Creative Commons by-nc-nd“, which means that you are free to download/distribute/copy the music, subject to the following conditions (to quote the CC website):

Attribution — You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
Noncommercial — You may not use this work for commercial purposes.
No Derivative Works — You may not alter, transform, or build upon this work.

Therefore, download away.

All about jazz

Today, I decided to finally record something that has been in my piano keyboard’s memory for nearly a month, a jazz/blues song (depends on what you consider to be jazz and blues, I guess, given that the two concepts are understood differently by everyone).

So, there we go, Thing-a-Ding can now be added to you list of most awesome or worst compositions ever. Your choice.

Two new songs

Sometimes, I sit in front of the piano and start playing random stuff, and every now and again, something strikes me as having potential.
Some of these songs are created and then set aside because I no longer like them, while others are forgotten.

And some are recorded.
As a result, there are two new songs in the “Music” section: Far From The Homeland, and Nuit.
Listen to them and let me know what you think.
