in 1990, i was living
in southern New Hamphire. i had been retired from performing
for about seven years. i had been employed for several years
as music director for a children's dance program in the local schools.
that year the program director asked me to compose music for
the kid's annual performance celebrating their accomplishments,
to take place at Keene State College in June '91.
the theme of the concert was to be the life of inventor
Thomas A. Edison. this is the music i composed for the show.
the recording is the demo i did in my home studio as a guide
for the orchestrator. i perform all the vocals. i
play all the other parts using keyboards and an Alesis hardware
sequencer and drum machine.
