I was not sure if those were mp3s or midi- my Mac just plays them right 
on the site and it sounded very piano-like to me...

while we are on a Ragtime kick - I recently found out about this 
publication - "The Ragtime Ephemeralist"
(the website is http://home.earthlink.net/~ephemeralist/index.html ) 
Volume 3 is available now, the first two issues are out of print. The 
editor/designer is award-winning cartoonist Chris Ware.
