"CLASSICAL" WORKS (with Liner Notes) BY RICK A DUNCAN
All works performed on a Roland XV-88 except #6 which also features Mari on a real flute. All works written on an old Encore 3.0 music program sent to me some dozen years or so ago by one John Clancy. This "no-frills" program fits easily on my work computer and enables me to claim that I get paid to compose. So thanks again, John. - RAD     September, 2006

Answering Machine


When I got my first answering machine, I put a song/message on it with these lyrics:
  Oh yes, we finally went and got ourselves an answering machine
  It`s something that we thought we`d never do to our phone
  So if you want to leave a message and it`s not too obscene
  We`ll try to call you back when we get home
The tune stuck with me for years so I did something with it here. (2.2MB, 1:54)

Flute Sonata in 3 movements


I wrote this for Mari, thinking we`d find someone to play the piano part (not me!) so she could perform it. The only problem was, we didn`t. So Mr. Roland had to do it here. (13MB, 11:05)

I got into writing variations on old T.V. show themes. Very bizarre. These are unedited and went onto the score exactly as you hear them. The "Andy" one somehow combines the theme with the opening notes of Mozart` s "The Marriage of Figaro" Don`t ask me how that happened. (4MB, 2MB, 3MB, 6MB | 3:26, 2:27, 1:36, 4:57)
