Thank you for asking my opinion. I regard yours highly and it is an hour to be a composer-freind. I would like to echo what has already been said about the piece. You should continue with it. Could it be more extreme in loudness, ppp, fff?…"
I use EWQLSO but i must say I do prefer what you have done with the Miroslav/HALion. It sounds less synthesised. The production of the EWQLSO seems sightly better in that it sounds more compressed and fuller. Just about to receive some…"

About Me (MUST be more than 10 words to be approved):
I think that the music on this page is an important cornerstone of what I am and what I do. At my core is a passion for creativity and I hope that shines through in something as apparently ‘simple’ as creating music. What you’ll find here is a collection of original composition (midi versions and live recordings) and live recordings of free improvisation.
The improvisations are recorded live edited minimally, for example there’s no multi tracking involved. The recordings are part of a collaboration with Walt Shaw, a very successful free improviser (www.myspace.com/waltshaw), produced through April to August 2010. The whole album (SIGNAL) can be downloaded free from . Matt Le Mare: Tabla, percussion, electronics, voice; Walt Shaw: Percussion, gongs, objects, electronics.
The compositions you hear are created for a contemporary ensemble. They are flexibly scored for a nationwide organisation which is dedicated to enabling amateur musicians to get involved in contemporary music making (www.coma.org).
I hope you enjoy my music, comments welcome…

Hi Matt, I had several listens to your "Water Potion" and like it a lot! Nice build-up with its medieval beginning with fanfare-like elements and drone (bourdon). And then the vocal/voice part that has somehow a science fiction like feeling. At least something like a synthesis. And it all has a Matt Le Mare touch. Great piece of music!
Your piece sounds great. At the beginning of it the first thing that came up to me was Stravinsky's "Le Sacre du Printemps", that horn rithm pace blast... then i see some minimalistic construction behind it and blocs of music, each one developing as one entity of their own. That permits me to see a well formal and structured piece. Well done, my friend.
This piece is done. No need to change, is awesome.
Now the next step for you is to find a way on next piece to develop some connection between blocs (if you made another piece on this manner) in a progressively way.
Thank you very much for your positive and encouraging feedback Matt. Always nice to hear from you. Thank you for your advice as well. I will certainly keep it in mind when I work on new music to include natural pauses, that will be a good exercise.
