The Freemantle Conservatory
Music Library
Freeman-Toole Sound Files
This library includes several live recordings
of Richard Freeman-Toole performances,
but are mostly MIDI readings of
Freeman-Toole compositions.
They are made as artfully
as possible, and work as
truthful representations
of the inherent compositional ideas.
Of course the purpose of this site is to
inspire real live performers to play
this music for real live audiences,
so we need to draw the line
in our praise of electronics somewhere
short of definitive.
