The Townsfolk

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ray Mar 16. 10 Replies

So along with my more traditional classical music that I've shared here, I also do a fair amount of electronic / electro-acoustic instrumental work as well, in a more modern style and flair. I'm…Continue

Generic Library Music attempt ( #2)

Started this discussion. Last reply by David Lilly Jan 18. 6 Replies

The other track was such crap that I openly admit I had to delete the thread as to avoid leakage of such awful material that came from myself.This is a more serious attempt at library music more in…Continue

"Hi Dave -  This was very cool, experimental wise. I think you should have taken it further, if you had the time. You could have pitch corrected each note you sampled from the glass via melodyne / auto tune, then used those pitch corrected…"

"Mm. In this case, I think it's such a specific discipline that the only way to learn orchestration is to orchestrate things. You can compose for years and never need to learn a thing about it. And if you compose something and an orchestrator…"

"Sure, this could be handed to an old Chesterton (my phone's autocorrect of "orchestrator") but David wants to do this himself - laudable but a task full of pitfalls that I'm still discovering after nearly two years and will…"

"In that case - if you're going to stick with four parts statically assigned to different instrument selections - I'd at least suggest changing the selections. You will likely end up with an unbalanced piece that fails to exploit the…"

"In regards to creating a complete score--I might be confused, but is what is notated in each of the four parts of the pdf  played by a composite sound in your DAW? For example are the strings played by one patch composed of vln vla cello and…"

"Thank you all so much for taking the time to provide valuable feedback. I value the time needed to write such detailed and appropiate responses.  Yes, the sound file / DAW is exactly how I want it to sound. Essentially, it is already…"

Dave Dexter replied to David Lilly's discussion Wild Frustration (In the Working Class)
"That's a good point. I've had far more trouble (in most cases abandoning the effort) orchestrating music written prior to any knowledge of orchestration than I have simply writing from scratch."
Friday
Bob Porter replied to David Lilly's discussion Wild Frustration (In the Working Class)
"David, What a fun piece. I wouldn't pretend to know how a DAW works, but it seems to me that you've already done the orchestration. If the sound file is indeed how you want the end product to sound, then you will need to write out a score…"

Mike Hewer replied to David Lilly's discussion Wild Frustration (In the Working Class)
"David, What a neat little piece, which is going to lend itself well to the orchestra. I really enjoyed its nervous energy. As you are aware, it has not reached its potential yet. As Dave has suggested, your approach to scoring the 4 lines is the…"

"It reminds me more of some Vaughan-Williams than Tom and Jerry, though a Tom and Jerry comparison is quite a compliment - those composers knew their stuff.From my own experience and taste, you're going about it in an odd way, but it's not…"

Wild Frustration (In the Working Class)

https://soundcloud.com/davidlillymusic/wild-frustration-in-the-working-classMy first "serious" attempt at a full blown, properly notated and orchestrated composition. The piece is satire in nature, and it's meant to reflect how most of the corporate working class are frustrated in their own little corporate world of work, and to an outsider of this environment looking in, it is kind of…See More

"Ooohhh. You're right, I leapt to a conclusion. If I was listening for 9 distinct placed guitars in a piece with 5 then you can probably forget any critique I made."

David Lilly replied to David Lilly's discussion The Townsfolk
"For the record, I have not stated anywhere this piece was the one with 9 parts - I believe there are 5 in this work. The 9 part guitar work, which Dave may be referencing from when I mentioned so in the controversial "Miniatures" thread,…"

David Lilly replied to Benjamn Ray Maisonet's discussion Minion Masters - Ravager's Vengeance
"Never on a single track - I personally feel for any track or sound you're using, you need to have a dry track - I usually apply effects on a track by sending the dry track signal (or tracks if it's grouped with another duplicate track that…"
