Flying Kites - quick piano impromptu

Started this discussion. Last reply by Gabriel Kovalov Feb 1. 7 Replies

I actually wrote this a good while ago, and have kind of re-birthed it. The rhythms were a bit complicated for me then and I came across this piece in an old music notebook of mine, hand written. It…Continue

Experiment No. 3

Started May 25, 2017 0 Replies

I haven't been able to get on here as much as I'd like. Work and all that jazz (My real job, unfortunately) But I was able to buy some new electronic toys with all this hard work and thought I'd give…Continue

There's Beauty in the Earth

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dave Dexter Apr 28, 2017. 4 Replies

Another one of my 'no score' tracks, more DAW based and electronic composition wise. But I thought I'd share it with you guys here as it has received some interesting feedback. A slight bit of…Continue

"Hi David, No, not the rhythm, I think you are playing the rh at b22 cf, an octave lower in places, that's all. This is definitely the sort of music that might sell well, have you thought about adding a few more movements. As you already have…"

David Lilly replied to John Driscoll's discussion The Art of Reverb
""Do you apply the same reverb across all your music? Across all your orchestral music? If not, what justifies your choice?" Absolutely not- you should look at your reverb choices to reflect the type of room, or if you're going beyond…"

"Thanks for listening Mike!  Could you explain a little more the disparity  you're referring to? In my world, I feel I am playing what is written at bar 22. I had a little trouble notating the rhythm of this section so I…"

Mike Hewer replied to David Lilly's discussion Flying Kites - quick piano impromptu
"Hi David, Nice to see you back here... I agree, a great little piece, but why the disparity between the score and the recording? The music from b22 cf would sound great as written... Just one other thing, at b57, the b naturals should really be c…"

"Delightful piece David; full of drive and vigor. Very tonal and non chromatic, which served the mood perfectly. Keep up the great work."

Flying Kites - quick piano impromptu

I actually wrote this a good while ago, and have kind of re-birthed it. The rhythms were a bit complicated for me then and I came across this piece in an old music notebook of mine, hand written. It was quite "wrongly" written, so I figured I'd do my due diligence and notate it as correctly as I can (the rhythms are still weird in the one section, and I'm not sure I got it right? Maybe I can get some feedback on that) That is me actually playing for a change and not the computer- so the audio…See More

David Lilly replied to Robert Fisher's discussion Presence - Piano/Electronics
"A simple idea, presented in a simple way as it should be, in my opinion. I enjoyed the listen.  Personally, I would have preferred just the track as piano. Or, taken the ambient noises and presented them as a very dull, static like sound…"

Experiment No. 3

I haven't been able to get on here as much as I'd like. Work and all that jazz (My real job, unfortunately) But I was able to buy some new electronic toys with all this hard work and thought I'd give them a spin. This is a bit untypical of my usual work, but it's a serious attempt at:-Creating something unique that people can say "I've never heard something like that before" -Pushing VST plug ins and the endless limits of electronic music to... well... its limits-Atonal writing -Changing tempo,…See More

"Ray's reminded me of my own impression I'd forgotten to post - I like the music and playing a lot but I think the production is too busy. In the first 40-odd seconds, there's what sounds like a delayed guitar adding a sort of rhythmic…"

Ingo Lee replied to David Lilly's discussion There's Beauty in the Earth
"Very well done David, it fits the ambient label perfectly.  I'm not a fan of ambient stuff and I would most likely choose differently on some of the mix settings but that's no criticism, good work."

There's Beauty in the Earth

Another one of my 'no score' tracks, more DAW based and electronic composition wise. But I thought I'd share it with you guys here as it has received some interesting feedback. A slight bit of experimentation with poly rhythms on the 'chorus', or pick up parts. But nothing absolutely stunningly unique in my opinion. https://soundcloud.com/davidlillymusic/theres-beauty-in-the-earthAlso made a really…See More

Gav Brown replied to David Lilly's discussion Writing at a fast tempo frustrations
"Hi David,I find writing at a fast tempo easier than writing at a slow tempo, simply because the notes in a fast tempo are less distinguishable than they are at a slow tempo, where every note is heard separately from the others and may be…"

Lawrence Aurich replied to David Lilly's discussion Writing at a fast tempo frustrations
"Let me say (in English) what I think Kris is alluding to.  You need to decide which notes are melody and which notes will fill in the chords.  An excellent example is Ravel's, A Boat on the Ocean.  He will write one…"
