    "Modes"

    Y'all,

    Here is one of my works that I composed at around seventeen or eighteen years of age, so expect a lot of immaturity. I can't remember, but I think that I was fascinated at the time by the use of alternating major and minor keys so I called it "Modes". Duh!

    I ended on a unison tonic to let the listener choose major or minor. When you hear the last, sustained note, alternate between the two modes in your mind and make your choice.

    My best to all,

    LGA

    Hi Larry
    I'm quite new to the forum but have already noticed that you are a regular contributor of music and commentary. Very nice to hear this youthful work. It is loaded with optimism and I enjoyed listening to it very much. Since I am a GPO neophite, I have started my journey by (similar to what you have done here) taking old pieces I haven't heard in years and rendering them using GPO in order to learn the ropes. It can be great fun to revisit the music of our well-spent (completely spent) youth. It is helping to listen to your work and the rest of the contributors to the site. Thanks for sharing your music!

    Mr. Paul,

    I'm not sure that MY youth was well-spent. I devoted a lot of time to chasing chicks. Hey, wait a minute! What's the down-side to that?

    I have hundreds of my works from the past on manuscript paper that I hope to slowly GPOize (Brit. - GPOise). The process brings a lot of pleasure to me.

    Thanks for listening.

    Regards,

    WOW!! This is awesome! I love the concept, and it is of course well executed.

    You simply must have some secret to be composing like this from such a young age

    The ending is perfect. I can hear it as either major or minor depending on my desire

    Great work, I look forward to more of your old pieces newly GPO-ized!

    Your music always lets me forget the woes of life and smile.

    Top of the mornin' to ye, Lad.

    Thanks for your compliments, Sean Patrick. I guess there is no "secret". I just do it. I actually started composing at around eight years of age.

    I am pleased that my music "uplifts" you.

    Best regards,
