"Rodney, It all sounds like a nice concept.  'Fallen Angel' is very evocative. I wasn't sure if the Berlin muted brass Americana was a sketch for your last mvt. or not, is it? It sounds a bit ordinary to me, but that's just a…"

"Hi Rodney - I'm not sure I understand your doubts about the finale. You want to use 'found sounds' and not have anything that resembles a sampled orchestra, but still you need a finish that resolves in a classical style?  There…"

"I have been working on this since August, now the entire work is not solely about 911 anymore but is a metaphor for the 7 stages of grief. Here is some of the score even though now movement 1 will now be 3, and movement 4 will be movement 1. There…"

"Nobody knows who or what inspired Bach's music, not even the man himself. There is no way to know, which is what makes the question less interesting to me. People will make up stuff (religion) to explain such phenomena or adhere to strict logic…"

Thanks for the invite, Rodney. I was quite impressed by your Sins of the Old Testament pieces. Dance of the Golden  Calf was quite beguiling. I'm currently listening to BelgianComposer's new Double Bass Sonata (http://youtu.be/c4wIy1qyf1E). Check his Youtube channel out. I haven't run across him elsewhere, but his work is consistently first rate. Again, thanks for your work.
