At Last, here we are with a page of music downloads by the wonderful Darkwing!!!
Here are all my songs, long and short, old and new... something to give you a little sampling of what I do in my creative pose... scary - isn't it??

So enjoy, download, listen.. feel free to email me back and let me know what you think...

Now these two are slightly different..... They are remixes of Madonna songs.... There was a competition posted on her web site (in conjunction with Sonic Foundry) where they supplied all the samples and you had to build a song. It was here that I realised how difficult it is to remix a song and make it sound like something different than what you already know.... These remixes are rough, and you can hear some bad joins and pops and clicks here and there - but it was my first attempt at something like that... I never entered them into the competition.

So there we are - I hope you all enjoyed.... If not, then tough luck.


A brief hisory....

The German company Fraunhofer-Gesellshaft developed MP3 technology and now licenses the patent rights to the audio compression technology - United States Patent 5,579,430 for a "digital encoding process". The inventors named on the MP3 patent are Bernhard Grill, Karl-Heinz Brandenburg, Thomas Sporer, Bernd Kurten, and Ernst Eberlein.

MP3 stands for MPEG Audio Layer III and it is a standard for audio compression that makes any music file smaller with little or no loss of sound quality. MP3 is part of MPEG, an acronym for Motion Pictures Expert Group, a family of standards for displaying video and audio using lossy compression. Standards set by the Industry Standards Organization or ISO, beginning in 1992 with the MPEG-1 standard. MPEG-1 is a video compression standard with low bandwidth. The high bandwidth audio and video compression standard of MPEG-2 followed and was good enough to use with DVD technology. MPEG Layer III or MP3 involves only audio compression.
