As of today, it is possible to order the scores of some of Ray's compositions from this site. Go to the (new) 'composing' section from the main menu and you'll find the 'catalog'. There you will find more information on how to order the sheet music and also some rudimentary (for now) samples of the compositions on offer. Currently the catalog features one big band compostion: "On the brink", but more are to follow soon (so you might want to check regularly!), including compositions for other ensembles than big band.
This site has been checked on a number of computers now and it was noticed that it was all a bit too dark. So the colors are changed to lighten it up a bit. They may still change a bit as the new scheme has to be tested on a number of browsers and computers again. (The beauty of style sheets: 10 minutes and the whole site looks different!)
It has been a long time since the last update of this site. Too much has happened in that time, so let's just pick up from here again. A Members-only area has been set up on this site, to exchange information with the members certain bands. Access is restricted with a password, so this new update will only benefit a select group of users.
The last saturday of February, Ray broke his right collarbone, so he has been "off-line" for quite a while. Slowly, things are healing and he has started working again (just in time for the taxes...). Everything still goes rather slow and sometimes painful, but at least he's working again
It took quite a long time, but finally: the fourth release of this site is active!
