For anybody who knows the harp well? Are these lines playable of a harp? (Ignore the bar numbers. They don't apply here. Also, I don't know how to designate a repeated line like this)In case you're…Continue

"Oh, no. I've been concentrating on Classical for the last few years. For my taste, it's best not to linger on a passage when a transition is calling, but that's just me. Like you, I have always found chamber music a little…"

"MIDI has its limitations, for sure. Maybe if I just wrote rock tunes. So far, either my music isn't good enough to attract the right ears, or I haven't found the marketing magic to attract the right attention."

"Don't sweat it on my behalf Art. I enjoyed the music, the playback is a terrible hindrance to your expression, which is a fine one imo, so I hope you can get a live performance and more importantly a recording."

"Mike, I think I can mock up scores for the 3 movements in a couple of days. They will probably lack much in the way of pauses, dynamics or tempos, but the notes will all be there. Would that suffice?"

"Those are some really nice remarks, Mike. Thank you. Getting real live musicians to perform my music is what I'm working for, here. I don't think a piece is really complete until it's been interpreted by other artists. (I have a…"

"Art, This work has some great moments and is incredibly inventive. I do like your  harmonic sense and lyricism. I'm sure this would sound even more effective with real players imparting emotion to the lines and some of the busy, intricate…"

Dave Dexter replied to Art Lowell's discussion About My Score

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.
