In late 2002, when "the powers that be" were looking around for a place to have a war, and brokering for allies and support - I composed a four-movement suite for trumpet solo with synthesizer sound-track, titled General MIDI Suite.
1. Reveille
2. Charge
3. Taps
4. March

My friend (and recently retired Army Band musician) Steven Musker performed the suite live, with amplified laptop computer. He used the scrolling form of Finale, and the syncing of midi-file and live performance was pretty good, considering we were using a pair of Advent speakers with no amplifier and no mixer in a small but very resonant hall. This is a tour de force for Trumpet and of course, Steven is an outstanding performer.

The sentiment is distinctly anti-bellum, and remains so today.

An enjoyable listen. What's most interesting to my ear is the contrast between the live and the not live music. Great trumpet playing. I like the music as well!
