Here We Come A-wassailing

from the music of David Tsai

This is a synthesized recording.

I was enjoying the winter season when I heard a particularly catchy tune. After doing some research, I decided to arrange it for the flute and piano.

Synthesized means that a computer generated an audio clip by compiling together different sound samples. No real people were involved in the production of such a performance (except for the computer operators and programmers). Thus, the recording sounds sub-realistic and lacks the qualities of a human performance, such as expression and establishment of the Pyramid of Sound.

My compositions, in the order in which they were written, are as follows:

  1. In the Flower Field
  2. Hope for Peace
  3. Friendship Song
  4. Victory
  5. Victory Revisited
  6. Here We Come A-wassailing (Arrangement)
  7. The Evil Scientist
  8. The Storytellers
  9. The Star-Spangled Banner (Arrangement)
  10. Only Words
  11. [The Current Working Draft]

I’ll be putting some more performances up here sometime. There are two other compositions, titled Ghost Note and Mysterious, but they are so short that I didn’t include them in the list above.
