Musical Direction: Rob Haines

Producer's Notes: This took hours to make believe it or not. It may be a little rough sounding, but keep in mind it isn't anything professional. Ben and me, both had much fun doing it. For English class we wrote a song called 'Old Money." (dedicated to the fantastic novel, "The Great Gatsby") We then recored a musical track, and sang it in front of the class. It was a super smash hit :) So that inspried me to do this for you. I feel like explaining the song a bit, it's my take on the lyrics...
The lyrics are about two people who are in love but they slowing drift away becuase they are different, but the singer says that they can still be lovers no matter what, even if he/she was chained under the water, and the other person was floating above, they could still be lovers. So the singer is stuck on the bottom of the water, but the person flaoting should be down there under the water, but there are just those differnces that keep them apart, and showing as the song fades they drift away....slowy...slowly...
Please listen to the whole thing, the fade out begins early and around 4 minutes there is a beautiful trumpet part.

Mixed by: Ben Stockermans and Rob Haines, by using the program 'Audacity'
Produced by: Rob Haines (paid Ben $50)

Producer's Notes: I really enjoy the lyrics for this song, I had to change the verses so it was a guy singing to a girl and not the other way around, and I changed a few lines here and there.
This song was easier to record even though we had major time limits due to other sings, however we finished it.

Producer's Notes: We had to do a project in English on 'The Great Gatsby' (it was more then great!) So we decided to do a song and perform it for the class.
The day of our presentation I was going to pick up Ben, then we were going to go to school early to pratice. However, I got a flat tire on my way to Ben's, and the was the only day in history that I had forgotten my mobile at home! So I walked 20 minutes to Esso (where I work) I then called Selina's mom (who was home that day by chance) and she drove Ben and me to school. We were a little late.
For the presentation we decided to dress up in 20's clothing, I looked like a fool since my suit was a little to small for me, but quite frankly I didn't care, I had a truck with a flat tire, I was late, and I was stressed to Hell. So Ben and I go up first to do our presentation (set the standard) We rocked that room and blew everybody away. 'Old Money' was a super smash hit! Nobody else wrote and performed their our song for that project, so all of theirs were nothing compared to our project.
Ben and I continue to turn out the best English projects, we wrote a 'World War I Medley' and performed that as well.
That day made me very happy, I don't know why, but for days after I could sometimes hear people in my english class and the other english class humming the tune of 'Old Money.'

These are some of the midi files which I have composed using a program called Mozart 6.

Deer at Dusk 2:04
This was the theme song for a movie that Sarah and I did, however the tapes that it was filmed on got ruinied. Oh well the song survived. In the beginning it was over 3 minutes long and had a piano at the beginning, also some parts were an octive higher, then I sliced it down to this.

Little Raccoon 1:50
Even before I knew you I've always loved raccoons. They're just so cute! Cute little claws, cute little face, pretty tail, and they can get all fat and cuddley. They can be domesticated as well, I know a couple of people who once had a pet raccoon.

Little Raccoon (Reprise) 1:36
I really liked the first song, so I redid it. This time its slower, an octive higher, and there are some other things.

Roaring Rain Dance 1:50
I just liked this piece, took me a while to do.

Video Game 1:45
I love this one. One day i was just writing jiberish, and I started to come up with this, and to me it just sounded like music from a cheap action video game.

Loathe and Endearment 1:35
I am very proud of this piano piece, don't know if it's possible for a human to play it :)

Roses 1:22
This is my favorite piece, so simple, so beautiful. It reminds me of drinking wine and having a vase of roses on the table.

Walking in Spring Weather 2:02
This is just another piano piece.

Climatic Mood 2:29
This one is alright.

No Name Song 1:44
Quite a simple piece, I just like how it gets crazy with all the different instrments and how each one builds up bit by bit..hmm I guess it isn't all too simple then. I don't have a proper name for it, perhaps you can name it.

Possible Paradise 1:27
I don't really like this one all too much, except for the bass line. However, people who had heard it like it.

The Peak 1:18
This one for some reason reminds me of a child trying to climb up a hill and then he/she reaches the top.
