Recordings

This website  presents about 500 mainly percussion based arrangements of classical pieces with fresh colours from new world instruments in exciting ways. Many of our recordings feature combinations of a Balinese Gamelan Orchestra, Marimbas, steel drums and vibraphones. These combinations have worked particularly well with Ragtime and other piano music. More surprisingly the addition of Ocarinas and flutes for orchestral pieces including symphonies have produced consistently effective results for all but the slowest movements. 
Quality The digital recordings of these arrangements were compressed into MP3 files. They are sampled at 48k Hertz and encoded at 192k bits per second - slightly better than a CD. They are suitable for use with all your MP3 Players including iPods, iPads, iPhones and Android devices and can readily be added to your collection by means of the relevant software such as iTunes. But as with most music they benefit further from good quality speakers or headphones.

Donationware - How it works

Copyright: we retain the copy right on our arrangements for public performance or any other commercial application but grant you the right to download it free of charge for your own personal use.  Donation: If you enjoy the music I would be grateful if you would make a donation to the charitable Trust Fund run by Croydon Whitgift Rotary Club.
More Info
This project was inspired by Emerson Lake and Palmer, Wendy Carlos and Evelyn Glennie amongst others - the percussion arrangements belong to a Feel Good Electronica musical genre - more than old wine in new bottles - they are original recordings which repay active listening. For example our recordings of Beethoven's 3rd and 5th Symphonies show how new world instrumentation can shed new light on even the greatest classical creations - bringing them to life in fresh and exciting ways whilst remaining true to the original spirit. This is  born out with our interpretation of numerous concertos and two symphonies by Dvorak including the Largo.
