THANKS FOR BEING A PLAYER

  HELLO BOOT.  LOVE YOUR MUSIC AND YOUR PLAYING.      ALTHOUGH I HAVE DONE WORK AND BUSINESS WITH COMPOSERS WHO DO NOT PLAY INSTRUMENTS OR PLAY WELL ENOUGH TO RECORD OR PLAY PROFESSIONALLY, I DO APPRECIATE THE PATCH WORK TRICKS THEY KNOW AND ARE NOT SO EAGER TO GIVE THEM UP. SOME OF MY FRIENDS HAVE COMPOSED LOVELY CAPTIVATING BACKGROUND MUSIC FROM NOTATION SOFTWARE THAT DOES NOT CARRY ANY SPECIFIC MELODY BUT SELLS.   I LIKE YOUR PLAYING AND HAVE LISTENED OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS. YOU HAVE THE…See More

PIANO AND ORCHESTRA - Can Be Played By Able Pianist and 37 - 42 Orchestral pieces

             This is a piece in the works. I am composing it hopeful to get an able player who enjoys an easy and complicated piece at the same time with crisp classical concerto style and demanding brass, percussion and strings all having their say.           I am happy and open for any thought on what and where the third part should go.  I play all parts myself through a Casio Privia 850 as the action and response is close to the M I was use to performing on. I use Miroslav Philharmonik…See More

PIANO AND ORCHESTRA #72 PART 2

               After posting part one of this piece on SoundCloud I have gotten some good advice from Peter and Kurt from Philadelphia and Warren from the Juilliard School whom I have known for 35 years. Hope you were able to get on this site. It took me a while.            Concert pianists Makito, Justin, Andre and Mary, Thank You for you hints on harmonic tricks to brighten up the parts needed. I also created a more pronounced and colorful piano middle part after playing it 30 to 40 times and…See More

Hi George, having listened to the cues you've posted I can tell you have the chops for corporate commercial video underscoring. My ears tell me they lack a bit body on the low end. I wonder what you monitor your mixes on.
