"Thanks Bob. Haven't heard from you in a while. I was just in that kind of a mood when I started it. The death scene from Looking Glass always gave me a good chuckle. Deems Taylor really disappointed me. Looking Glass is probably the only thing…"

"On the one hand, I like the change, I like the overall feel and tone of the piece. On the other hand, some repetition is a comfortable thing in a piece of music. Very definitely a feel of Debussy in there."

"Art... Well done!  So many textures and colors. I hear what others are saying about a possible lack of unity, but to me that is the charm of the piece. Michael"

"Hi, H.S. It really is a stream-of-consciousness kind of thing. Much like a dream would be. There are 2 major themes involved. First, that figure in the harp part that I introduced early on and then finished with. Second, the theme brought in by the…"

"As it turns out, I found a decent and more precise hi-pass filter among Logic's "legacy" AUs. Applying it, along with the tips I got on this thread about how to use it, made a huge difference."

It's been a life-long dream drive to create music. Been in bands, played in orchestras and listened to it all. I've always wanted to compose, but didn't think I could do it until I got serious about working with DAWs. I guess the DAW is my instrument now.
