Ideas and Improvisations

The creations in this section are not necessarily completed, developed “works.” I have a folder on my computer full of ideas, sketches and half-developed themes. Some are just melodies, others are theme sketches with some development but not continued, others are very short ideas. Most of the creations in this section are ideas that I like, but I do not necessarily want to continue developing into longer themes. Therefore, between having them rot on my computer waiting to be developed, or publishing them incomplete, I prefer the latter.
