I recently purchased VSL Solo Strings and I'm learning to use the free VSL player that comes with that library. Dane Aubrun has posted some beautiful pieces on Composer's Forum using VSL so I asked…Continue
"This is fascinating and skillfully constructed piece Liz and it will appeal to some but I doubt that it will ever be popular even by classical standards. But you knew that you were setting high standards for yourself and your listeners with…"
"Modern-ish yes and delightfully so. A composer who feels limited by an extended library is a force to be admired. But I must ask the vocalist "What's a nice girl like you doing here?" She seems so reserved and elegant amidst the…"
"Dane what you have now would give more flexibility to a lyricist I think. The botched abortion tale is certainly dramatic. Steven also has several partially done 'scripts' for a space musical series. 'Interstellar Fur…"
"HI Dane -
My friend Steven Bancroft is a talented, if unorthodox, song writer and he (after my suggestion) is interested in writing lyrics for your project. Steven is not a librettist and does not read music so this collaboration may not work and he…"
"Very nice extended work here Michael, it held my interest and I enjoyed it. You have good sounds and orchestration and an interesting style which seems to blend impressionism with some folk and romantic elements. It's very difficult to…"
You said you are looking for a librettist, do you have a specific project (opera?) in mind? If you spell things out perhaps someone on CF could connect you with someone. Would you consider an amateur, what language or form would this…"
"Hi Diego, welcome to the forum!
This piece sounds just fine the way it is, you already have harmony and an implied melody with an ABA song form that is used by many other songs. You can extend this or add parts to it or call it good and move…"
"Dane I agree with Liz here, "stunning in effect" is a good description. I don't remember you using such a wide collection of sounds before but it it works wonderfully here with so many colors blending and contrasting. The idea…"
"Thank you Dane, the same to you and everyone else on CF.
I really appreciate having a variety of quality original music to enjoy and expert advice to listen to from all of you. Here's hoping that 2021 will be easier and safer for us."
"You have a great feel for this medium James, this is an enjoyable listen. Thank you for the video score, it makes reading this too easy.
I have the EW wordbuilder app and it is frustrating to use for me at least. Their choir sounds…"
"Great news John, congratulations!
Your instincts were much closer than my armature logic; of course it all depends on their budget like you say.
I hope you can share with us here as the project progresses and as you are able, hopefully…"
What have you composed for? Or what medium do you work around?
Film, Web, Small Ensemble, Songs, Contemporary Ensembles
What is your favorite genre or style of music?
I like them all
Is music your main income source?
No - Not at all.
Where do you live?
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.
I've played various styles of music semi-professionally off and on for many years, and written both instrumental and vocal material during most of that time.
