And here's number three. To get some interesting movement in the slow intro was the big challenge here. I¨m not used to writing slow stuff.Continue

And here's the second movement. The movements of this quartet are much more connected than in my previous quartets. But that will not be noticed until the third movement. Continue

Long Forgotten Dance - movement three (string quartet)

Started Oct 19, 2016 0 Replies

Today I finished the third movement of my second string quartet. In this piece you can expect an unhealthy influence of Mozart and an appalling disrespect for classic traditions. In other words I…Continue

"Thanks! The plan is to find some string players that can perform it."

"NP2 is a huge improvement but it's not perfect. There are still room for further improvements. I guess less reverb would give a more chamber impression. I just wish Avid would update the Sibelius mixer so it would be easier to operate."

"Simply delightful!. Agree about the pizz, but not a big problem if you can find a real quartet to record it."

"Yes, I have reacted to that too. I hope they fix that in a future update of NotePerformer. Glad you liked the piece Mike!"

"Great little piece, with a lovely untroubled mood, even the faux serious bit around 1.50 had good cheer. What let it down was the unrealistic pizz. sound which was out of scale in terms of volume and timbre, nothing you can do about that I guess. I…"

"Thanks Mike! Yes, there's a bit of Swedish folk music influence in there, along with some rock. I will post the second movement soon."

Hi Lennart,

thank you for listening to my music and for your kind words. I'm glad you like what I do. I've been told I remind people of David Sylvian before but I've never heard him. I should check him out. I'm really enjoying your music at the moment. Really unique and captivating. Keep up the great work! :)

Take care,

Rowan

Hi Lennart, thanks for your kind feedback. I like your music too!

Hey Lennart,

 

I appreciate your comments.  Walking Nights and Christ He Loves You are some of my favorite of yours.  I think you would find much inspiration from Michael Talbot.  Celestial Ballet was written to describe the majestic nature of the world we live on and the insignificance of us compared to the One who created.  Many blessings and continued growth in your writing.

Hi Lennart,

Thank you for the nice comment!  Regarding how I learned arranging, I wish I had a good answer.  I don't even know if I "know" arranging, but I'm glad somebody out there thinks so.  :)  But honestly, I really don't know how to answer that question.  I did study a bit of theory, but for the most part I guess I compose by "feel", for better or for worse.  Like everyone here, I'm sure, I've listened to a lot of music, so that has certainly helped internalize a lot of common musical concepts.  I do wish I could study more about music theory, arranging, and orchestration, but there never seems to be enough time.  But I try to learn where I can.

I've listened to your music and it sounds quite good.  So for what it's worth, I think your hard work is paying off.

Welcome to the forum!

Don

Thanks man! :) I loved "Pigs of the farm" and "Walking Nights"! The latter was very soothing indeed. The former was awesome! :D It sounded like one of the happier Blackmores Night songs! :) Kudos!

A logical step

Posted on January 2, 2012 at 11:00am 0 Comments

I have moved from Grageband to Logic Pro 9 and I expect it to make a huge impact on my music. Now I have really professional equipment and NO EXCUSES! Right now I'm in the process of programming my own sounds on all the great synths. I will then remaster some old stuff and start working on new songs. I'm having fun! I'll be back as soon as I have something to show : )

Two new songs

Posted on November 10, 2011 at 5:41pm 0 Comments

I've added two new songs in my player. A piece for harpsichord and trumpet, called "Fly by Faith" and a piece for a bouncy of synths and a oboe, called "The Warmth of Your Smile". Go check them out!

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I started out writing electronic songs, in the eighties, and have later moved into orchestral stuff. Today I work with Sibelius and Logic Pro X. I also use a variety of iPad apps. Melody is central in my compositions. For me breaking with the old school is not about writing avant-garde stuff, but about using a modern tone language with old school techniques. And with modern tone language I mean mixing in rock, pop and folk music influences.
