Antipodes is the name of a series of compositions that I wrote for my Master's thesis for my M.A.T. in Music. Half are twelve-tone, or serial compositions, and half are tonal (or modal).

You must have the RealPlayer G2 program installed in order to listen to the piece. If you don't already have it, you can download it from RealPlayer. You can get a copy for free, or get the deluxe version for $29.95.
Total time is approximately 33 minutes. The music is kind of like

for details and I'll mail it out to you. The CD will also have
Scientists, my Bachelor's project, on it.
For a bit more, I'll throw in the rather extensive papers that were written to accompany both works. They explain the compositional procedure used and other interesting background information about the pieces. For considerably more, I'll send you the complete musical scores that were also prepared as part of the projects.
