Complicated reasons.  I have just given this work to a digital distribution setup and it kind of requires me sticking with them. I did it with the understanding that anyone can get access to it freely, without subscribing or any other hassle like that. It should be just as easy as getting hold of Youtube but it's not turning out that way. Streaming companies should be the way forward for guys like me if everyone is easily able to listen to the entire track without installing software and definitely subscribing! It's on many channels and somehow I will figure out a way of providing a hassle free link.  Googleplay was one of the best but it requires people to have a google account.

It doesn't work for me, I fear.

I see a record cover, but nothing happens if I click on it.

I see the title "Narcissistic", but when I click on it, I just see a page saying "Anmelden" (which means "log in" in German).

I also see your name, and when I click on that I see you sitting on a box holding a guitar, next to the word "Subscribe" (in English).

I also see, below your name, a list of five "songs" (do they mean "pieces"?). When I click on one of these I see a small picture of a youth wearing boxing gloves - is that you too? - but still no music.
No, I am not  a boxer!  Is this the spotify link? It does a setup in German.  Try the  googleplay link; it should be fine.

No, still no music, just the jolly old boxing. The first you've heard of it, what?

No boxer and no guitar for me, just a CD cover and three tracks: Narcissistic, Harmonio and Adieu.  Clicking these does nothing.  But it does say "Subscribe to Google Play Music and listen to this song and millions of other songs. First month free."   So you have to subscribe to listen.  And if you don't unsubscribe you will eventually have to pay.

Don't subscribe on my account! You're supposed to be able to listen to it for free (you might get an advert).  I'll try and get my brain around it. I'm going off the whole idea of streamed music; too many complications. It seemed like the perfect answer - people could listen to your music for free.  It just so unnecessarily difficult, having to download software, subscribe, adverts and distribution...I will sort out a solution somehow.

Shouldn't really do this but here is a link to Reverbnation where you can listen for free and no hassle.

Dig it. Minus the countable rhythms, and middle eastern hints. The entrance reminds me of the opening of Carter's Oboe Concerto.

I see. Fascinating. What you're saying is that some of the rhythms are a bit too predictable.

I love spacious music, and common time rhyhtms contrast with that. Ditto chromaticism and modal (especially middle eastern) elements, respectively. Not having heard the entirety of the work, I can only guess at your intentions there, and I'm not attempting to disuade you from them, merely expressing what I enjoy and don't.

Interesting excerpt, Ian.

Not going to attempt an analysis, but if I heard it unaware, there are some elements which might make me think the composer was French.
