"I agree with your comments in particular about the over present obstinato and the mix. I need to remind myself let a project sit for a few days before I release it. I've since worked on it and it's a better piece for it. I appreciate…"
"There are some lovely ideas here. I like how the melody starts simply with the flute, and the intensity picks up with the addition of the counter melodies. Unfortunately, this is overpowered by the ostinato bass. At one point I felt the counter…"
"This has an interesting mood; noble, reserved, and a bit sorrowful. I think it captures how you feel about him musically.
Compositionally, I think the bass is too dominant. It has a grinding ostinato that makes my speakers (and ears) buzz. You…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
Since I was a teenager I've been making short films. I always loved making them but there was something very special about taking the footage into a quiet editing room then placing one shot against another. That's when the magic really happened. And most magical of all was when I would bring MUSIC into these films. Instantly I could see what a powerful effect music had. Though I always had an excellent feel using it in my films for many reasons it would be years before I would compose and bring my own music into them. But when I did it was as if a door was flung open and wondrous, eclectic, powerful music stormed in.
I've always loved Classical and Classic film scores and my music reflects that but I have far ranging tastes including Glass, Vangelis, Bach, Gabriel, Jenkins, etc. "Lost Islands on an Imagined Sea" is my first album. I's filled with what I'd call short and hopefully captivating works taking the listener to distant times and lands.
I appreciate your compliments on my choral music. I'm hoping to assemble an octet of classically trained vocalists to perform and record A Dawn Never Ending this summer. It would be nice not to have to hear a virtual performance of my music. ;)
My view of music is that it can be used to paint a picture, or tell a story. Many of the works I have here, and some on Soundclick that aren`t here, I hope can communicate that. Thanks for the good words. :)
