I decided to post some miscellaneous recordings I had sitting around my hard drive.

Otherwise, read on for a track-by-track description.

First up, here's a tune I made with the idea of using it for a film or video game soundtrack. This mix has an extended intro.
[SND] 3-4mellowpianofullmix-mastered.flac                         24-Nov-2006 02:15   18M
[SND] 3-4mellowpianofullmix-mastered.ogg                          24-Nov-2006 03:19  2.9M
[SND] 3-4mellowpianofullmix-mastered_64kb.mp3                     24-Nov-2006 03:17  2.0M
[SND] 3-4mellowpianofullmix-mastered_vbr.mp3                      24-Nov-2006 03:19  5.6M

This next tune is very much in-progress. The piano take will probably be replaced and overall the song will change quite a bit before its final release. Consider this a "demo" mix.
[SND] 190bpmGminorRendered.ogg                                    24-Nov-2006 03:18  3.9M
[SND] 190bpmGminorRendered_64kb.mp3                               24-Nov-2006 03:20  2.5M
[SND] 190bpmGminorRendered_vbr.mp3                                24-Nov-2006 03:18  5.6M

Now on to the piano recordings. This is a recording of an improvised 12-bar blues on acoustic piano:
[SND] acousticpiano-12barblues.flac                               24-Nov-2006 01:52   12M
[SND] acousticpiano-12barblues.ogg                                24-Nov-2006 03:19  2.3M
[SND] acousticpiano-12barblues_64kb.mp3                           24-Nov-2006 03:20  1.4M
[SND] acousticpiano-12barblues_vbr.mp3                            24-Nov-2006 03:20  4.5M  

Here's a short improv track with minor tonality and a walking bassline:
[SND] acousticpiano-minorenergeticwithwalkingbass.flac            24-Nov-2006 01:36  7.5M
[SND] acousticpiano-minorenergeticwithwalkingbass.ogg             24-Nov-2006 03:15  1.4M
[SND] acousticpiano-minorenergeticwithwalkingbass_64kb.mp3        24-Nov-2006 03:17  871K
[SND] acousticpiano-minorenergeticwithwalkingbass_vbr.mp3         24-Nov-2006 03:15  2.8M  

This is a short segue I made that would be suitable for transitioning between segments in a TV show, radio, film or other broadcast media.
[SND] balladmellowsegue.flac                                      24-Nov-2006 01:26  3.0M
[SND] balladmellowsegue.ogg                                       24-Nov-2006 03:15  639K 
[SND] balladmellowsegue_64kb.mp3                                  24-Nov-2006 03:15  394K
[SND] balladmellowsegue_vbr.mp3                                   24-Nov-2006 03:15  1.1M  

Finally, here's a take of some turntable scratching I did, using a Technics 1200 turntable, Rane TTM 450 mixer and an Ortofon DJ Pro needle.
[SND] vinyl-99BPM-squelchyexperimentalscratching.flac             24-Nov-2006 03:14   20M
[SND] vinyl-99BPM-squelchyexperimentalscratching.ogg              24-Nov-2006 03:16  3.3M
[SND] vinyl-99BPM-squelchyexperimentalscratching.wav              24-Nov-2006 03:14   42M
