Ragtime Novelties

On Gamelan & Marimba

Some of these novelties have very strange titles  viewed from this century and the musical  content can be somewhat whimsical or require  amazing dexterity on the part of the pianists for  whom they were originally composed.  Darkey Tickle    Dope                            Dew Drops          Four Little Blackberries Dizzy Fingers    Four Little Sugar Plums   Grenwich Witch Cleaning up Georgia Dimples Kitten on the Keys Ragtime Chimes Stumblin’ The Mascot

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
Our arrangements are based on MIDI  transcriptions of the original sheet music  published ten years either side of 1900 in the  USA. Many of the transcriptions in this selection  were produced by John Cowell and have been put  into the public domain without restriction. We  used a digital sample based version of the  Indonesian Gamelan together with a selection of  digital Marimbas. With trial and error a consistent  set up was developed and then adapted for each  recording. We have sought to emphasise the  contrast between the two voices of the piano  music whilst emphasising the rhythmic content.   There are more Gamelan Ragtime tracks on the  Rags, Dances and Intermezzos pages and you  might also be interested to hear our selection of  other march tunes.
