ABOUT: In the late 80's I had this idea, and not a little bit of delusion, that I could take all 3600 lines of text in Shakespeare's Richard III (wiki) and turn them into something musical. It didn't matter that nobody before had managed such a monstrous task. I could do it. Sure. I even talked to a director about staging the show -- after having completed two songs (!). He was supportive, but wanted to hear back when I had more done (hey, Art, send me your phone number again, won't you?).

By the late 90's I had conceded it was unlikely that, at my current rate of composition, I would live long enough to get to the death of Clarence much less Richmond's arrival. So I decided to work on themes and motifs to support a staged production. Uh-huh. Someday. But I love the idea, and I love the play, so here is a track for Act I Scene 1 (and I do have more finished tracks to come). Work began on this track on October 3, 2001.

Info on the historical Richard, Duke of Gloucester.
INSTRUMENT VOICING: Three tracks of piano, Fretless Bass, two tracks of single Violin, Velo Strings, and five tracks of drums.
HARDWARE/SOFTWARE: Roland JV-35, Macintosh computer, my friend MasterTracks Pro, a DBX gate, an Aphex Aurel Exciter, Tascam board, BIAS Peak software, M-Audio SOLO firewire interface and Garage Band to get the track out of MasterTracks, iTunes to convert it from AIFF to MP3. And Dreamweaver and Photoshop CS2 to build this page. Many thanks to all those whose hard work on these items made it possible for me to share this with you.
