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.
