Hi everyone,

Here is my composition Shattered Dreams, for 4 cellos and 2 pianos. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks so much!

Hi Raphael

Liked the builds, the quiet moments.

I thought the piano was doing all the hard work, my only suggestion would be to have the cellos go frantic on their own sometime.

Nice camera and editing BTW

BRAVO!  I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Thanks Michael! Glad you enjoyed it! You bring up a good point that the piano parts are much busier and the cello parts are largely sustained lines. That being said, I do have pieces featuring much more frenetic cello work (see Aftermath: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmQJ-fBc6Vo). My intention was to juxtapose soaring melodies against intricate arpeggios, to symbolize a tumult of emotions set against the inevitable march of time. In future, I do hope to mix up the level of activity in my pieces to achieve more variation and a greater diversity of musical effects. 

FYI, the film was shot and edited by Craig Conoley, an Ottawa-based filmmaker.
