This is the finale to the series, 2016 a Spacey Odyssey, though I'm going to name it something different like, A Journey into Space. If all eight pieces are played in sequence it would run just over…Continue
"Regarding score writers with decent sounds and very close to Finale and Sibelius (I believe one day it will leave them behind even in score-writing features), have a look here Lawrence. It is completely free to download and it’s improving all…"
Interesting point. I focused solely on making a smooth transition from the somber movement preceding it to the big climax at the end. Bringing in the quirky sounds of the previous movements never…"
"So you want me to say that on rare occasions even the kitchen sink can be a welcome addition to any musical composition. Well I'm not going to say that. This piece makes me want to take kitchen sink lessons, but the sink…"
"L A, for me, this was too earthbound. I hear 'seafaring' and not space odyssey.
That is the 'general impression' I got from a 1 time listening. No matter how you / we
intellectualize what we intend to compose, the…"
"lots of good ideas Laurence and some decent scoring in places. The score presentation does indeed need to be cleaned up as Socrates says. The playback does this music no favours whatsoever as it has nothing to do with what the piece would sound like…"

If all eight pieces are played in sequence it would run just over an hour.I have used ideas from Holst's the Planets in six of the seven previous pieces. In this piece I've held closer to Holst's Uranus because I think it is his best and most innovative movement. I did not look at Neptune as it seems somewhat nebulous, vague, and ill defined, (I don't get…See More
"In good comedy there is truth. Don Rickles truth was that Hollywood types were mostly idiots and not to be taken seriously. People like Merrill Streep, Alec Baldwin, Rosey O'Donnell use their celebrity status to foist upon the…"
I'm honored that you wish to analyze and cite the Boson piece. Please go ahead.
I'm not sure if the structure is like John Adams, but the ostinati, consonant quartal harmonies, and some rhythmic aspects are, and the angular theme probably. Have fun! I look forward to seeing the result.
I just listened to your 'Etude In G'. I really liked being taken on such an authentic Baroque journey. It sounds a little like the music that was used in the early Warcraft computer games. They were always notable for their very high quality Baroque style soundtracks. Have you every had ambitions in that area?
