Music video montages on YouTube

Three of my tracks have accompanying video montages and these are available on my YouTube channel. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that they compress the stereo track to mono when they convert submitted videos to the FLV (Flash Video) format.

I've since found out that if you transform the video to FLV prior to uploading to YouTube, you can preserve the stereo. I'll have to work on this for the next videos but for now mono will have to do. You can always listen to the stereo versions over on my main music page.

A new take on the Dr. Who theme tune

Not long ago, I was playing around with some music and I ended up making a "techno" version of the theme from the television classic, Doctor Who. Unless you're a Brit or a SciFi fan, you may not be sure what Doctor Who is, in which case I'll briefly explain that it was a BBC TV science fiction show that has run, on and off, for decades.

If you want to listen to my re-theming of this iconic tune in an electro/techno manner, you can check it out at The Doctor Who Remixes site or over on my music page.

My own music is now online!

Well, it's taken a while but I've finally launched my new music site! Friends and family tend to be very lenient with their criticism but they've often told me that I should really do more to promote my own music (after all, that is my first love. I enjoy my job but I love composing!)

Check it out at www.jimmo.org.

There are demonstrations and samples available under "free music", although these are mostly classical in nature. You can listen to samples from the album I'm currently working on too!

The music files are hosted in the UK, so you may need a little patience to download or stream the mp3 files from other parts of the globe (depending on the quality of your international internet feed).

For those with Simon Cowell tendencies, you have the option to leave criticism on the forum :)

(Note to foreign readers: Simon Cowell is a music industry personality infamous for his very blunt but usually correct critique)
