Thank you for your comments. i understand, it's my own voice but is similar to other composers. I've had to think about this and you mentioning it has been useful. I guess a truly original sound is hard to find, one that maybe should be be sort. I'm finding its part of my composition process to continue to find my voice/sound. I'm sure we'd al agree that is a very good thing! 


All the very best

Thanks for the positive comments and grappled with a decision to work progressively. I'm playing with adding more randomness to my compositions. I really do feel that likening my music to "Le Sacre du Printemps" was not justified. I hear the peice recently performed by the French national orcestra and was compleatly loss in it's complexity. People are still trying to figue that peice out, amazing!


All the very best

BTW, I am really enjoying Voices - the flow seems just right to me and the sounds are seductive to the ear and mind.
