A composer named F. Stowe, with the handle Zendada, is apparently
developing some sort of musical opus based on Paul Morphy.
I can't play the music on my computer, but for those who can,
here are several pieces he's made available for previewing:
Paul Morphy Suite: Pt. I : Morphy's Susanna
Paul Morphy Suite: Pt. II : Aura Lee
Paul Morphy Suite: Pt. IIIa: Prelude to Battle
Paul Morphy Suite: Pt. IIIb: Morphy v. Anderssen
Clarification on this item:
The Paul Morphy Suite is composed by Forrest Stowe. Some of the vocals included are by singer Anchor Mejans.
To see a video of "The Ballad of Paul Morphy", visit:
Just to clarify:
The creators of these pieces (The Paul Morphy Suite) are Forrest Stowe (a.k.a.: ZendaDa & the vocalist is Anchor Mejans). The pieces are currently up for listening on Sony's Acid Planet site on Zendada's page: http://www.acidplanet.com/artist.asp?songs=347056&T=6147
This music (as yet the series is incomplete) is totally imaginary and only loosely based on some of the more colorful aspects of Morphy's life.
"As I mentioned, I can't preview it myself"
I would count my blessings.
I got my funk on.
Somehow the last one.. Morphy v. Anderssen sounded like chess on drugs.
