Introduction

In this online setting,  you can select either Set 1 or Set 2 of the Keyboard Etudes for listening.  Or you can listen to the entire recording from beginning to end without interruption. There are Program Notes that accompany the music .

In addition, there are two sets of computer-generated images created by Ron Wallace. Each image is a visual representation of an original Etude (1993 version). There are 24 Etudes and 24 images in total. The digital images are viewable with detailed notes in The Artwork section located on the Sidebar.

The MP3′s are UNAVAILABLE for purchase. None of the music in this 2012 enhanced version is, or has been, sold commercially. It is intended for online playback only and is not downloadable.

In 2012, I added a variety of synthesizer sounds to the original Etudes composed in 1989, often coupling them together, to give the pieces a broader musical texture. The original recorded version (Titanic Records, 1993) is available for purchase online at Archiv Music.
