Music Composers Unite!
This work wants to paint the rising of the sun, the sun beaming through the clouds and mirroring in a mountains brook, it's merciles power in the desert, it's life giving power and it's sunset at the end of a day. Just as well it may describe the rise, splendour & passing of a man . . . one of my favourite works . . .
This really blew my hair back. Awesome stuff!
Very well done Gerd!
I hope you don't mind me saying that it sounds Beethovenian. It sure would sound so much better played by an Orchestra.
Another example of your commensurate skill at all aspects of composition: proportion, balance, production. In the absence of a score I can't comment on details (not that I would anyway without cause!).
Purely my response it came across as one great hymn to the Sun, the uplifting at about 45 seconds when the brass enters, and the big build up in the bars before the climatic 3'25", thereafter easing down to the ending - lower strings? taking it down to a final note, a final easing of the excitement.
...and describe all those visuals, you certainly did! The Sun gives life, but you gave it back! A wonderful rollercoaster.
All the best
Kudos Gerd. Well done.
Very intriguing work and extremely well done as to orchestration, thematic material and recording (for an older work). Of course with present day means it could sound a lot better and realistic (strings mainly). But that aside, it's a top notch piece which I definitely like a lot!
thank you you all for your appreciation for my work. Especially, Sean, your emotional words move me and I am grateful that this work has such an effect on you. To answer your question: all of my instruments are created directly from the edited notes by the tool NotePerformer . Otherwise I don't use any libraries, but I am thinking of getting me spitfire in the future ... :-)

Gerd, if you don't mind me asking, what horns library do you use? I just listened to this again and it brought tears to my eyes and gave me goosebumps. It's really great
Wow, Note Performer looks cool! I multi track with midi in Logic which is an entirely different animal. I'm interested in writing a piece using the traditional scoring approach so I may try this software out. Perhaps it will result in a more thoughtful arrangement in the end as it is like writing blueprints as opposed to recording in spontaneous ideas via a midi keyboard. Thanks for the info and for sharing your magic music : )
