"I can not give the technical feedback other professionals here can give.  I liked the progressive intricate language between the instruments.  It reminded me of the third act in the "close encounters of the third kind"…"

"Hi Brandon I really loved this piece - great arrangement of the parts, great blend, nice build-up. When I listened to the opening bars I thought at first you had an organ in there. I was thinking a lot of things as I was listeneing to it -…"

"Nice one mate! The part from 1.19, the part were the sax is playing. I think it's a little too empty and kind of get's rid of the nice flow I got in in the beginning. Maybe add some more layers? the rest I think is very good :)"

"A sixties sound with a modern feel, I like it!  Percussion would be good for this I think, maybe even guitar and bass? Good work, thanks for posting."

"Brandon, I can't offer any more advice other than that shared above. I don't know enough about the technicalities of the instrument for the specific score to hand. All I can add is my enjoyment of the piece throughout. I was transfixed by…"

"56-60 should be fine for any professional jazz players, it's not a weird juxtaposition, it just looks ugly on paper. Notify them well in advance that this is the place they should check out and digest above everything else and they'll…"

"These are legitimate points made by James although after playing it a couple of times the rhythms in bars 56-60 are quite manageable, but only because it feels right after it's been dissected. I don't think a session musician would thank…"

James Giddings replied to Brandon Schwab's discussion Throwing Feathers - Brandon Schwab ---- All Feedback Appreciated
"Sounds really great! I enjoyed how it developed and found it a satisfying piece of music. I wonder if you are aware of how difficult it would be for live musicians to perform bars 56 - 60? In isolation, the 4/4 to, essentially, 12/16 would be…"

"I like the repeating motif here. Concerning the relation to the Superman Theme. I hear a similarity there but the melody leaves out one note. I didn't make the association until Saul mentioned it. I would agree most definitely film…"

"There is maybe a need to be concerned here about copyright. Your theme is simply taken almost in an identical manner from John Williams soundtrack for the film Superman. You simply slowed the theme a little, but its poignant nevertheless and is…"

"Hi Brandon, I like it! Definitely movie and very Spielbergian at that. It felt to me like an end-piece, something to be played as the credits roll. I think a faster version, perhaps moved up a bit in register, might do as an intro. I had to listen a…"

The Great Big Machine in The Sky - Brandon Schwab - FEEDBACK APPRECIATED

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuLQWdwZLiY&feature=youtu.beI normally write longer through composed pieces that are more suitable for live concert bands and orchestras to perform, but I thought I'd give writing purely for listening and not for other groups to perform a try. This is more film score-esque than my normal pieces. Id love any feedback. See More

"Hi Brandon, This is a very interesting piece dynamic wise, lots of up and downs in thermes of volume and expression. The harmonic content is also interesting, not extremely experimental, but good for the general listener. Keep up the good work."

"Lovely orchestral work. Nice bass rhythm. I appreciate that resolution appearing at 1:50 forming a nice complementary contrast, an effect I search myself when composing. Thank you Brandon. Kjell"
