Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ian MacPhail for “Stylophone Demo”:
Very weird, very cool. I like this experimental track you're on with this one. Is it crazy as hell? Yes. Cool tones. Check. Would like to hear some more of this stuff. I like that it seemed a little off the cuff, informal. Very zany and fun.

Thanks,

I'd love if you'd write some music for me to play on it! I'm stumped with it, improvising on it is very hard, and nothing I write tends to transition to real instruments very well. Something a minute or two long, with the range being from A to E the octave above it.
Chords are no problem, I can have dozens of recorded tracks.

Up for it? :D

This is a piece I've been working on for a song, I think it might sound good coming from you on your new Stylophone. All of the chords are for written out measure for measure, in 4/4. The last C7 should be sustained:

Em Em7 Em Em7; C7 C Csus4 C; Em Em7 Em Em7; C7 C Csus4 C; A7 A A7 A; F; F#; Em Em7 Em Em7; C7 C Csus4 C; Em Em7 x 2; C7 C Csus4 C; A7 A A7 A; F; F#; G G G7 G7; Em Em7; F; F#; G G G7 G7; Em Em7; F; F#; Em Em7 Em Em7; C7 C Csus4 C; Em Em7 Em Em7; C7 C Csus4 C; A7 A A7 A; F; F#; Em Em7 Em Em7; C7 C Csus4 C; Em Em7 x 2; C7 C Csus4 C; A7 A A7 A; F; F#; G G G7 G7; Em Em7; F; F#; G G G7 G7; Em Em7; F; F#; Em Em7 Em Em7; C7(sustain this chord)

I just need to look at how many different chords are there, since I won't record the whole thing in one take :P (each note must be recorded individually...)

Just going boating around the islands on the west coast of Canada.
