Thanks to kirk and spedblavio, I have found a new place to post my music. Some of you had tried at my old website and had discovered that the links were broken.
You can now find the music at:
All the stuff there right now is very small in size due to the file size limitaion of my previous site. I will upload more when I get a chance.

I'm on my work computer so I can't give a listen but I will surely do so when I get home. Thanks for sharing!

Paul man... PAUL!
Really excellent work, I'm very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed listening! And this sort of thing usually leaves me cold (midi-realized prog and classical). But your writing skills make up for the shortcomings of your production environment.
I've only listened once through, so it's a little premature to name favorites but so far I especially liked "Flight of Imagination", "Rennaisance Dance" (oh, you might want to fix the spelling there I just noticed: should be Renaissance), "The Water Cycle, Part I - Rain"... like I said, it's too soon. I enjoyed them all.
Aside from production and effects, some of it could benefit from a little patch and midi-data tweaking to introduce more realistic expressiveness to the instruments. But where this is usually a major shortcoming of such work, in yours it is a minor point. Sure we'd all love to work with real instruments, orchestras etc. Making it sound real and alive is one of the biggest challenges. But as I said, the strength and sensitivity of your writing overcomes these difficulties to a much greater degree than similar things I've heard, especially considering how it was produced.
Right on, man!

Thanks for the kind words:D
Believe it or not, you're listening to MIDI output straight out of Finale through a Roland Sound Canvas, and recorded in Creative W@ve Studio (EDIT: had to type it this way to remove the flag!), which comes with any SoundBlaster card. That's all I have at the moment!
Although it is somewhat possible to fine-tune MIDI events in Finale, it is very cumbersome, as that is not really what Finale was designed to do. It's great for writing out scores, though (I bought it while taking some college composition classes).
I look forward to someday having software that will allow me to have more control of MIDI, as well as allow me to record real instruments - I have my eye on Cakewalk Home Studio right now because it's closest to what I can afford.

paul- very impressive. you're going to be
an absolute monster turned loose w/ home studio!
i listened to "two minutes..." very nice.
it reminded me somewhat of genesis
(a good thing).
i'll listen to more of your and richard's tunes
as i take breaks throughout the day.
if either of you get stuck for sounds, my library
has around 80,000 .wav files by myself
and everyone from the moscow symphony to...
i even have midi drum files by bill bruford,
cleared and royalty-free of course.
i posted a greeting on the i.c. forum's
"new members" post, drop in and say hull-ow.
'good to see you guys grab a mitt and get
