I haven't posted any music for a while so here is a piece I would like to get some criticism of. This is a woodwind quintet that is tonal and quite accessible. It is influenced by the classical…Continue
"That's a great story; yeah the hidden code stuff gets goofy on Sibelius too sometimes. Actually a lot of stuff gets goofy on Sibelius, but that's probably just my laziness about not learning it better.
I didn't make myself…"
"Hi Liz, this is a very impressive work actually. It's long and intricate and thoroughly modern, all of which I like. Dane and Tim have asked and discussed the many questions that come up with your work and this discussion makes for…"
"Ideally you would have an EQ plugin and a compression plugin on every channel. That will give you a lot of control over your instruments. The plugins typically have presets that handle a lot of situations for you. What you are looking…"
"Hey Rick, you mentioned overloading your DAW when you've turned up your faders, I'm just wondering if you have done any EQ on your tracks? Samples and instruments tend to build up lows and low mid-range frequencies and there is not…"
"Welcome to the forum Liz and thank you for your encouragement and suggestions for my piece. The tempo issue that you mention is something that I do need to address. Some work with tempo changes, as you suggest, is probably the best solution…"
"Thank you Tim for your support to me here and your contribution to this forum.
The interplay between parts in my piece is something that has always attracted me to music in general and I spend a lot of time thinking about it so I'm happy…"
"Hi Rick, I like your song, it's fun to listen to and it does make me think of music of a certain era which is cool also. As far as production, as you say there is a lot that you can do with midi so how far you go with that is up to you,…"
"I wondered about some of the range issues on this Dane so thank you for that and the encouragement. And I'm afraid I'm pretty dependent on non transposed scores, Sibelius makes it easy with a button that automatically goes back…"
"Good points Gav, thanks for that. Three beat rhythms have a lot of momentum which is attractive but then you have to go somewhere with it which can be an issue. I understand the tempo feel that you mention but I didn't want to rush going…"
"I enjoyed this piece very much, Ingo. The instrumental lines are pleasant, the interplay between them and the turns of "phrase" sometimes even clever, and the music never quite does what one expects. I did get a sense of sluggishness in…"
"Hi Ingo, I appreciate these pieces a lot. So different, unique and rich of content. Brilliant treatment of the instruments creating great sound, those woodwind sounds that are so immense and beautiful, put together in a nice thematic…"
"Nice piece Ingo. I liked the interplay especially in the 2nd part. This is where I think the music was beginning to come into it's own. Especially interesting was 3:03 to about 3:13. That one passage has a lot of interesting things going…"
"Very nice piece, Ingo. Easy going, dance-like and the rhythmic twists come across well. I can see no performance problems. The low flute would work ok in an ensemble of this size. No crit of the composition at all. The interplay of the instruments…"
Thanks for the score! It has a mideval dance-like-quality which I think you were striving for, with some kind of modern update which I can't quite put my finger on. I seem to hear several pieces rolled into one, each of which seems to…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
