Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

Maybe prompted by the more oppressive, vehement things I've been working on of late, I'm offering this little number written some years ago for a local movie group. In spite of a couple of rhythmic blips it was accepted as is.

I hope it still has the warm cool of a summer morn about it. 

I rarely write music like this now; somehow miss it. Written for chamber strings, flute, oboe and clarinet. 

Any comments would be gratefully received and thank you if you've given it a listen.

Ha! Well I was surprised this was yours 'cause it didn't have any of the usual Dan things I have come to expect... You know? You are heading there to that familiar place and suddenly bam! weirdness and unexpectedness...

On a completely unrelated note, I wrote a musical many years ago where one of the main character's name was Retsis Acitore, it made me wonder where you got it from....?

Thank you, Claude.

I don't often write that kind of music although I'd class my entry for the Imaginary Machines contest as "light music" (even if I did have to borrow someone else's tune). The Acitore came from the hopes of a movie group, their working title for a feature-length. I was quite excited about the prospect and used the name on S/cloud to set up some piano tracks. The story really appealed to me. It came to nothing though. Applications for funding were turned down. I dare say the derivation of the word is the same as your character!

Anyway, this piece has only received one listen, presumably yours - so, thank you. But I'll withdraw it now to save S/cloud "minutes".

Cheers.

Oh dear, too late. I've just come across this Dane but, as Margaret Rutherford said when alluding to a handbag: "There it was...….gorn!"

Any chance of sending me a link? (spwlines@gmail.com).

Hey Dane, why don't you just upload it directly here so it doesn't get lost? I despise that Soundcloud thing anyway...

Good idea.

I will, then, contingent on what happens to Composers Forum. Contributions received so far barely meet half the target so I take nothing for granted. 

Cheers.

That's why I'm experimenting with YouTube now, I doubt that will ever go away and there's no limit on how much you can put up there...

Let's hope it doesn't come to that - YouTube is great for what it does but I would be lost without the excellent dialogue that we have on CF!

Plus the chance of getting me to sign up to anything google is slightly less than someone swimming the Pacific Ocean. The T&C are unacceptable (at least, what I've read of them).

Hi Dane

The link failed. I got the message "This track was not found. Maybe it has been removed "

I have an account with Google just and only for that, Google has no idea who I am and I use a separate browser... Heh, heh, heh, silly Google thinks it can track me...

Google will still get you. I use this computer only for composition and related websites without ever disclosing any home address details. I have an older Win 7 computer for browsing and shopping (and still do very little of that on line). I occasionally use Google to look up a composer or something music related here.

But it still knows my location / town and states it here. I have neither faceache nor twatter accounts. It can only know my town from nosing around personal details in shopping sites used on that older computer. I have an ad blocker but now regularly refuse to go on sites that demand to deposit cookies (or make it complex to opt out). That's why musiscore is a no-no. Gone are those halcyon days of Win 98/XP when things were so slow no one bothered with cataloguing our every breath! 

Perhaps in time I'll be squeezed out. Ah well. I existed before the internet; no doubt I'll exist without it.  

 

Ah well... You need:

A browser logged in to be tracked when you want to e.g. music interests, professional tools, etc

A private browser for things you don't want to be tracked on e.g. when people send you video links of kittens

A TOR browser for stuff you don't want to be tracked at all e.g. reading about celebrities... Lol!
