~/imallett (Ian Mallett)

I play fiddle, piano, and theremin, in decreasing order of expertise. I also compose music. I experiment a lot, and as noted below, some of my pieces were generated partly through computer generation.

All resources provided here are provided as-is. You may download, copy, repost, perform, etc. these works so long as you don't directly take credit for them. For specifics, please see this page.
