Aaron strongly recommends grabbing one of these versions because the versions are transcoded to 128kbps from mp3 files encoded with an old version of LAME that cut off frequencies above 16.5 kHz - in other words, they sound horrible.

The compositions on the album (Compositions 1993-1997), as suggested by the title, were all written a long time ago; it was all sequenced with a Yamaha CBX-T3 synthesizer. As of September 18, 2012, the versions uploaded to Dropbox uploaded reflect the third revision since the initial master was made; the versions are an older, second revision.

The Marathon Remixes are rearranged compositions of Alexander Seropian from the game of the same name.

Two short remixes of a track from Compositions 1993-1997 have also been released under Marathon Chronicles, which also serves as the name of a scenario he began building for the aforementioned game series which most likely will never be finished.

Demos 2014 is a collection of primitive piano performances, some of which are covers of other artists' material, some of which are original compositions, and quite a lot of which are improvisations. They are not heavily edited and should not be considered finished products; one of them in particular features some fairly obvious mistakes, although overall they should still be enjoyable to listen to.

Aaron can be contacted at his message board Fool's Gold either through the contact form or via private message (registration is required for the latter).
