The resident was pleased to hear the main character’s lecture, and decide to enjoy a leisurely stroll toward the red-light district.

The main character in this piece is a 29-year old theology professor and doctoral student on the ultimate quest to discover the meaning of life. This quest of discovery had inspired the person to make stops at numerous places where many people gathered, including that of Luisenpark, St. Sebastian’s Church, Yavuz Sultam Selim Mosque, and even SAP Arena. Yet even these places of interest left the main character puzzled and ever more curious than before.

The main character heard a public religious gathering at Carl-Benz-Stadion, where numerous religious leaders gathered to celebrate the first ever “International Day of Religious Tolerance.” It was during this four-hour event that the main character realized that his “meaning of life” meant finding enjoying what the world offers, but being also mindful of his actions and never to take advantage of people.

So, with guided spirit and renewed belief, the main character began to power walk to random places until just seconds after sunset at Lupinenstraße, where the place was buzzing with people busy at work. But the main character was rather perturbed, because the person noticed that other people, namely tourists, were taking advantage of the female workers. As one woman approached the main character, the main character reminded himself of the words from the lecture earlier at Carl-Benz-Stadion. The main character decided to give the woman a proper night out on the town, with dinner, dancing and the romantic kiss without lust or anger, but with love and class. The couple enjoyed a romantic night after midnight.

This piece has a format of 4AABB4ACC4ADD. Zez Confrey’s “Dizzy Fingers,” James Scott’s “The Suffragette” and Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag" were the basis for this piece. Confrey’s influence is felt during the final section of the piece.

This is the forty-second destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Liege’s Rue du Champion.

The main character in this piece is a 30-year old goat yoga instructor. This person spends most of his time abroad and rarely stays in one place for more than four consecutive days. However, the main character enjoyed perfecting goat yoga in Belgium, and decided to take the craft to the people. That journey included a nine-day stay in Liege, as the main character demonstrated his talent toward numerous crowds outside several places of interest, including the church of St. James and the Citadel de Liege. The main character even became a main attraction as it delayed the opening of what locals called the “Old Lady” – the cycling event of Liège–Bastogne–Liège. Finally, the main character even brought his goats at a pedestrian zone outside the city’s Opera House, where the main character, along with his goat, joined locals in eating bouquettes and drinking beer.

The main character was even pleased to hear that Stade Maurice Dufrasne was attending a Guinness world record for most goat yoga instructors inside a stadium, and decided to join in as well. After six hours of strenuous goat yoga, the main character decided to take an acrobatic stroll along the city streets. Right before an orange sunset came upon Liege, the main character arrived at Rue du Champion, where the person noticed many attractive and busy women.

Unfortunately, many of the women rejected the main character’s presence. However, the main character had his secret weapon of goats and with the trustworthy companions, the main character was able to pull off an impressive act. The performance was so memorable, that it caught the attention of one lucky woman: a flaxen and auburn-haired, green-eyed woman, who many residents described as the hardest woman to please. The main character did his part to excite the woman, and found more ways to excite the woman, beginning with chocolate-flavored beer and chocolate-covered Belgian waffles, and ending with both people holding hands at a busy shop in Rue du Champion.

This piece had a format of 4AA4B4CCADDCC. Anatoly Lyadov’s “Ballade” and Felix Mendelssohn’s “Venetian Boat Song” (Op. 30, No. 2) were the basis for the piece, the latter whose influence is evident in the C section. Also note that the D section is an eight-bar section.

This is the forty-third destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Thun’s Parkplatz zwischen Bahnhof und Postzentrum.

The main character in this piece is a 29-year old numismatist and money services business owner. This person spends every day thinking, breathing and loving money, whether it is modern-day dollars and euros or even ancient Phoenician goat yoga instructor. Every four months, this person enjoying taking nine-day trips to Switzerland, but this trip was different as the main person would be visiting Thun for the first time. This person made the most of the vacation, as the main character spent the first day as a guest lecturer talking about the benefits of numismatics at Hotelfachschule (Hotel Management School). The nine-day excursion saw the main character read four books about money laundering at the famous Stadtbibliothek Thun and even donate 50% of his business earning to the city famous Scherzligen Church.

The main character was even pleased to hear that Stockhorn Arena would be the first Swiss stadium that would host a publicity stunt that NBC is sponsoring – NBC being the Numismatic Brotherhood for Camaraderie! There, Swiss bank leaders littered the stadium with exactly 87,909,376 Easter eggs filled with currency from over 200 countries. When the event finished, the main character walked out as the winner with $466,489 in combined earnings, including finding a rare $5000 American bill.

Unfortunately, the main character felt empty even with his love of money. As the person began his power walk from Stockhorn Arena, the main character began to take note of how many couples were in Thun. The main character began to realize this because he seldom interacts with women, even while in his business. So the main character, wearing a black overcoat, decided to keep walking until arriving at Parkplatz. There, the main character noticed a stark contrast as the street had numerous single women struggling to make ends meet. So the main character, with conscience girt, decided to do the only honorable thing; donate his winnings to the women in the area, and one woman, an auburn-haired single mother, gazed at the main character in such awe. Suddenly, the main character had more than just a love of money, but also a love in his life never experienced until now. The two people enjoyed a casual dinner and the night together.

This piece had a format of 4AA4BBCCADD4CC. Two notable pieces from ragtime composer James Scott were the basis for this piece: “Sunburst Rag” and “Grace & Beauty.” In addition, two other influences for this piece were Aaron Copland’s Hoedown from “Rodeo” and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Major, Opus 102, both of which were intertwined in the C section of the piece.

This is the forty-fourth destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Dusseldorf’s Hinter dem Bahndamm.

The main character in this piece is a 30-year old theremin player & avid traveler. This person spends every day searching for new ideas to write melodies as the person travels to a different city every 16th day. But every nine trips, the main character has one city in mind to always go back – Dusseldorf. This trip was even special because the main character accomplished so much on this endeavor. The journey began with the main character performing his works along Königsallee on a brisk, sunny afternoon. The journey with the person accomplishing other things at other notable places of interest, including bungee jumping off the Rheinturm, confessing sins at St. Lambertuskirche and even performing more theremin works at Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus. But the main character had one other secret few people ever knew – the main character is also a psychic. During the performance at Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus, this person convinced all 15876 people in attendance, along with another 38025 strangers, to join in an historic event; that was because the main character had predicted Fortuna Dusseldorf, who was sixth in the standings, would win the Bundesliga title on home soil.

So the main character escorted all 53901 people to Espirit Arena to watch Fortuna Dusseldorf play rival FC Koln. All thought the main character was just playing a ruse, but in a matter of seconds, the unthinkable happened. Dusseldorf scored a winning goal, and with results going their way (SC Paderborn winning at home against Bayern Munich; Greuther Furth winning at Dortmund; Heidenheim drawing at RB Leipzig; relegation-threatened Darmstadt winning at Hamburg; Erzgebirge Aue winning at FC Kaiserslautern), Dusseldorf won the Bundesliga.

Everybody was excited, and one random stranger came to thank the main character for the prediction. As a reward, this stranger gave the main character a predication – nine hours before the rooster crows for sunrise, the main character will find a suitable woman to love. So, with guided spirit, the main character sprinted to Hinter dem Bahndamm, where thousands of women roamed the busy streets. But it was a flaxen-haired maiden, having toiled in rigorous labor for months without respect, that caught the main character’s attention. They first met at exactly 8:23 pm local time – exactly nine hours before the rooster crows, and it would be love at first sight. The hidden psychic had his turn of anticipated fortune.

This piece had a format of 4AABB4ACC4AA. Bob Dufford’s religious hymn “Save Us, O Lord” and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Novelette” were the basis for this piece. Dufford’s influence is particularly evident in the A section, while Rimsky-Korsakov’s influence comes from the transitional phases heading into the A sections twice.

This is the forty-fifth destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Helsinki’s Kallio District.

The main character in this piece is a 32-year old lingerie designer. Every year, this person is always traveling to create new ideas based on either the latest trends or old-school techniques. The goal for this creation was simple: make every woman special, no matter the woman. Helsinki was no exception, and in a span of nine days, the main character had so many ideas to create a new lingerie line. The journey started after noticing classic styles of clothing that several young families wore at both the beach resort in Aurinkolahti and the city’s park Eläintarha. Then, the main character became even more inspired by traditional clothing many patrons wore at both Uspenski and Helsinki Cathedrals. Finally, the main character needed a touch of discipline and restraint on his lingerie line and so decided a trip to Military Museum of Finland would suffice. For nine hours, this person feverishly completes a line of 25 new pieces of lingerie – all pieces designed in a hybrid of a cubist and classical style in various shades of black, red and pink with 25 percent each made from lace, spandex, polyester and silk.

Excited by this accomplishment, the main character hoped to showcase his new line at a women’s inside Helsinki Olympic Stadium, where HJK Helsinki hosted a UEFA Europa League playoff match against Belgian club Zulte Waregem. Unfortunately, the main character received much criticism from many people and even from a few hardline male chauvinists who threw beer and vodka at the main character, an incident shown live nationally. Heartbroken, humiliated and embarrassed, this person walked with dejected spirit on the streets of Helsinki.

The main character had walked four hours before arriving at Kallio District, where a group of 25 local women stood nearly a business entertainment parlor. The women were pleased to see such a devoted person specializing in his craft and shared in his pain of rejection. In fact, one woman advised the main character to not worry because the hardline male chauvinists had always ridiculed them, but the women, working and single struggling to make ends meet, have always managed to overcome adversity. So, the main character then said, “Each of you ladies, please accept my creation that I created. It wasn’t intended for you to be beautiful to a man but intended for you to be beautiful to you inside. Be luxurious and feel rich.” The women became flattered, and the main character would stay with the women for the next 36 days, creating more lingerie that the women would feel liberated and special.

This piece had a format of 4AABB4CC4DB’4CC. Frederic Chopin’s “Waltz in D-flat Major,” Ludwig van Beethoven’s Opus No. 19 and Felix Mendelssohn’s Fantasie ou Caprice Op. 16 No. 1 were the basis for this piece. Chopin’s influence is felt in the A and B sections, while Beethoven’s influence is evident in the C section.

This is the forty-sixth destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Saint-Truiden’s Luikersteenweg.

The main character in this piece is a 30-year old bar & restaurant owner. This person had been struggling since inheriting the previously successful business from his father and uncle four years ago as so much chaos unfolded because the person wanted to do things his own way without rhyme or reason. Such actions resulted: 81% turnover employee rate, lack of operational controls and even a midnight raid on the building due to excessive underage drinking. One day, the half-niece of the borough’s chamber of commerce posted a note on the bar that the main character owns; that note read, “If you really want to save your bar and protect it from eminent domain, my advice is to come with me and visit Saint-Truiden.” So, they embarked on the journey to the city, and the half-niece was able to take the main character to three notable places: Lievenvrouwenkerk (Church of Our Lady), Stadhuis (Town Hall) and the city’s farmer’s market, where pears, apples and sweet cherries are the staples of this city. The goal in each location was for the main character to learn about going back to basics, but the main character did not have that grasped in his head.

So, the half-niece had another plan as the duo attended a FIFA Under-20 World Cup match at Stayen Stadium between New Caledonia and Sweden two hours before kickoff. The goal once again was for the half-niece to teach the main character about not cutting corners. She used the example of Sweden’s training as an example of the nation sticking to a routine and never overlooking anything, especially when it comes to competition. But it was also of little avail as alcohol consumed the main character; in fact, the half-niece had to carry the main character out of the stadium because the main character had bankrupted nine beer kiosks inside the stadium. Fortunately, the half-niece found a kiosk selling mouthwash and bought nine bottles.

So, after sobering up to walk another three hours, the main character was able to walk determined with the half-niece to one more location. This time, the half-niece had taken the main character to Luikersteenweg. Now, the main character had heard a lot about this place and was hoping for fun, only to see several boarded-up buildings and struggling women on the street looking for job. The main character began to ponder, only for the half-niece to make a comment. She said, “Let me tell you something I haven’t told you. You see these buildings that are boarded up? Well, the truth is, I use to own those buildings, and I was once arrogant and a hot shot like you. Then, one day, without warning, the businesses went belly-up and I was left humiliated and without hope. Don’t make the same mistake I made. Go back to what made your father and uncle’s business successful. Go back to basics.” The main character realized now that he needed to change, and this was the right opportunity. In fact, the main character went so much as to say, “Not only will I restore my family’s legacy, but I will also be committed to restoring yours as well.” The two people enjoyed entertainment and relaxed at a hotel.

This piece had a format of 4AABBACCDD. “Palm Leaf Rag,” “Fig Leaf Rag” and “Rose Leaf Rag, ”three Scott Joplin pieces, were the basis for this piece. The format follows that of many previous Scott Joplin pieces, where the A and B sections are in a major scale and the C and D sections are in the major scale’s subdominant form.

This is the forty-seventh destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Strasbourg’s Avenue de la Forêt-Noire.

The main character in this piece is a 29-year old aspiring sous chef and food exporter. This person has been known for improvising classic foods with a different take at both his job and his food exporting business, especially when those involved his childhood favorite food: Oreo®. So, this person to do something rather interesting: infuse global cuisine into Oreo® cookies. Strasbourg would be the perfect place, and it would be at many places of interest where the main character offered up interesting combinations. The journey began at Place Kleber where the main character sold bouillabaisse Oreo® to many residents. A vichyssoise Oreo® would be another delectable treat for both royalty and commoners at Parc de l'Orangerie, particularly at Pavillon Joséphine. The main character was so conscious about people’s dietary needs that this person even offered halal chicken Oreo® to many people at a kiosk outside Musée d'Égyptologie.

The wide flavor profiles took an interesting turn when the main character found out that Strasbourg’s Stade de la Meinau would be the host venue sponsored by the IOC – IOC being the International Oreo® Congress. The main character did not hold back with his creativity; after eight hours of competition, the main character had the eight best flavor combinations for the whole competition. They were the following flavors or combinations: rhubarb & blood orange; Hungarian bratwurst & sauerkraut; etoufee; leeks, onions and elk; rutabaga & beet; turnip & lingonberry; vodka & ginger ale; ghost pepper & harissa.

With the results completed, the main character decided to celebrate by taking a power walk and selling more Oreo® along the Strasbourg Tramway. When it was time to walk some more, the main character decided to head to Avenue de la Forêt-Noire. It was there that the main character discovered a blonde woman, working in the district and an Oreo® lover, who wanted a person to hang out, but only if that person knew her top four favorite foods. So, the main character, after careful thought, took a guess on the three foods based on her heritage and life: bilberry, tamarind, guava and Bananas Foster. The woman stood in shock and with eyes wide open replied, “My goodness, for many years, no one could figure me out until your intricate and eccentric profiles won me over. For the record, I did watch your performance at the Oreo® competition.” The main character, relieved by this comment, enjoy a casual date with his new woman and spent the evening at a posh hotel.

This piece had a format of 4AABBCC4A4DD. Benjamin Goddard’s “Au Matin” was the basis for this piece, as were these three people: Steve Duckworth, Ed Lima, Jeff Tymoschuk, all having been involved in the sountrack for the video game “Nightfire 007,” with “Chain Reaction Building Theme” the most influential theme as it is even in the 4-bar transaction following the C Section. Also note that the B-section is a 24-bard section.

This is the forty-ninth destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Prague’s Perlovka.

The main character in this piece is a 31-year old travelling entertainer & comedian with an impeccable knowledge of the world. This person’s talents go beyond the entertainment industry, as the main character’s performances have been instrumental in aiding local law enforcement agencies in the arrests of 625, ranging from petty larceny and shoplifting to even money laundering and terrorist financing. Prague was no exception as the main character had several random acting appearances across the city. The journey began with the main character uncovering four local shoplifters during a comedy sketch outside Žižkov Television Tower. While entertaining locals with a classy take on Frank Kafka outside Spanish Synagogue, the main character also foiled another group’s vandalism plan. The creativity continued as another comedy sketch inside a conference room at the Dancing House would land 16 high-profile corporate executives in jail for embezzlement and enterprise corruption.

But it was at Great Strahov Stadium, where Mlada Boleslav and Sigma Olomouc were playing the Czech Super Cup, where the main character pulled off an impressive stunt. With the help of stadium personnel and security, the main character revealed the identities of over 250 known hooligans in attendance that were looking to cause a riot. Before those hooligans could do any potential damage, stadium security had them arrested and escorted to a newly-designed prison-style train at Praha hlavní nádraží (Prague Main Railway Station),. A As a reward, the main character became an honorary member for both clubs for life and would enjoy a victory lap before the game.

The main character had a power walk when a decision was made to visit Perlovka. It was there that this person thought he saw excitement: gorgeous women, happy tourist and a continuous nightlife. But something perturbed this person, as many women, employees working at Perlovka, needed entertainment. So, the main character gathered the women for an impromptu comedy show. The women didn’t know when to laugh, but the main character would pull off another stunt: this time, with other tourists disguised as INTERPOL, confidential informants and local police listening, the main character revealed the world’s four most dangerous men operating inside a busy club. In no time, these tourists stormed in and arrested the four men on human trafficking, racketeering, enterprise corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing. After the incident, the women who were listening to the main character’s sketch all prostrated on the street. One woman replied, “For many a time, we prayed that a true gentleman would help give our district a good name for the many tourists that come. You may not quite be as pure as the Infant Child of Jesus at Church of Our Layd Victorious, but you are indeed a close second.” The main character was pleased with the comment, and the women would provide services for the person for the rest of the night and the next three days.

This piece had a format of 4AABB4CD8AA. Bedrich Smetana’s “Vltava” from “Ma Vlast” and two pieces from female composer May Aufderheide, “A Totally Different Dag” and “Richmond Rag,” were the basis for this piece. Note that the B-section is a 28-measure section, something almost rarely seen in ragtime. This piece is dedicated to those lost during two of Prague’s notable events: Prague Spring and Velvet Revolution. Their resolve is what inspired this melody.

This is the fiftieth destination in the collection of the series "Ragtime at the Red-Light District." This piece is set at Ingolstadt’s Club Lido in Kälberscüttraße.

The main character in this piece is a 30-year old mathematics teacher and an avid trigonometry fan. What makes this person special isn’t the knowledge of mathematics, but this person has been voted by esteemed professors from 144 countries as the “World’s Most Boring Mathematics Bachelor.” That is because this person has never lived life and never left his country of origin. So, the main character had a dream that had only two people: himself and St. Peter. St Peter said to the person, “Before sunset on the seventh day, you will meet a beautiful woman and fall in love with this woman. Go to Ingolstadt and live life.” But the main character became adamant and said, “I may go to Ingolstadt, but I will not be shaken. If God intended for me to be chaste, so be it.” In In any event, the main character hurried to Ingolstadt.

Excited by the dream, the main character had his eyes and imagination open in ways unprecedented in his life. So, the person began his journey with confession and guidance from a priest inside Church of Our Lady. The next three days saw the main character visit three more iconic places: Kreutzor Gate, University of Ingolstadt, and Museum Mobile. But one place had interested the main character above all others – Audi Sportpark. That was because the main character overheard a special event to happen during Ingolstadt’s Bundesliga match against Stuttgart. Audi Sportpark would attempt a Guinness World Record for the largest outdoor speed-dating event following the match. So, the main character decided to go; but after speaking to 58081 women inside Audi Sportpark, the person left empty-handed as he heard several harsh comments: too boring, too strict, too rigid, too unspontaneous, too righteous, and even one woman referred to the main character as too unclingy. Heartbroken and swearing incessantly due to the dream with St. Peter, this person walked with hopeless spirit on the streets of Ingolstadt.

The main character had reached another notable location in Club Lido, where the main character noticed a single mother working at Club Lido crying, due to a group of rowdy hooligans having harassed the woman with vulgar language and lewd behavior. The main character thought he did not know what to say to the woman, but with guided spirit, he consoled the woman and offered support and loyalty. The woman was pleased and offered her unwavering support and love, which happened 36 seconds before sunset. Then the main character, remembering the dream with St. Peter, said to the woman, “I’m ready to live life. With you by my side, life will be worth living.” So, the two people enjoyed entertainment and even a free trigonometry lesson while relaxing inside Club Lido.

This piece had a format of 4AABB4CDDA’A’. George Botsford’s “Grizzly Bear Rag” and Irene Franklin’s “Redhead Rag” were the basis for this piece. Note that the A section is a 24-bar section; in addition, the first A section is written in F major, whereas the second A section, although retaining most of the first section, is written in F Mixolydian Mode.
