Nice composing Mr. Porter. I like your work.

Yes, the musicals I wrote for kids, and I guess I am still writing, are different fare than a lot of what's out there. I am spending a lot of time reviewing voice leading and counterpoint in order to write a choral music, which a music director in Colorado asked me to write ( I suppose based on my previous work). however, I've not written hardly any satb and didn't study counterpoint in college the the learning curve is steep right now.
Is the Compassion Symphony one of your works. I need to look about this forum a bit so I can listen to your stuff.

Yeah, He apparently took some things too personally. you know how he is.

Bob, I have listened to several of your pieces, and find Funeral of the Gods, and School Project to be most inspiring. Having read some of the other comments on this forum, I realize that my uneducated opinion is of lesser value, but as an avid music listener, I can tell you that these two pieces are deserving of accolades in praise. I think we might have some very common interests in approaching music composition and development. Both songs captured my attention and held it, even though there were a couple of lulls in both pieces. I anticipated a return to the melody. Your choice of instrumentation was very wisely used, and I could heard the horn solo beyond the front of the mix. (very nicely done) I will continue to listen to these in the near future, so there may be further review. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Bob !
I was just listening to your track "School Project", it's very clever and quite emotionally deep. I like it a lot ! It is also a good source of inspiration.

Many thanks for commenting my track a few days ago.

Wish you well

Mp3 files and other gripes

Posted on November 8, 2012 at 8:57pm 0 Comments

I've had a bad day so I'm feeling a little grumpy. Sorry. So I'll get right to it.

I like to listen to the music that folks post here. I am surprised at the talent. Most of us are hobbyist and care about what we post. I know that SoundCloud is a popular place to post music. That's fine. But SoundCloud does not work on my Android tablet or phone. The Forum sponsored method of posting mp3's (which was the way I thought we were supposed to post music) works just fine. The main reason I…
