As a lot of us are already using Soundcloud it would be a good idea to integrate Soundcloud into this ning network. I tried to post embed code, but it didn't work properly. Ning and Soundcloud…Continue

Well then, I want to ask for some feedback on this symphonic work (still in progress). I named it for the moment "Waldszenen / Forest Scenes" - synonymously for some of the moods in it. The "end" is…Continue

"As we are not living in the baroque period I would prefer Ondib's definition too. We could call it "Polyphonic Contest"."

Hi,

I like your music!

Rudi, you are welcome. I appreciate your:

1- Experimentation 

2- Use of live musicians- especially drums!

I'm enjoying your music/experimentation....again!

I started listening to "Why So Nervous?" with a friend. We both instantly started dancing. I love it! :)

I finally sat down and listened to your Symphonie Nr. 1 Zweiter Satz. I enjoyed it a lot. It contained a lot of dissonant elements but I easily accepted that quality on an emotional level. The overall texture was very pleasant and 'open'. It was not overly dense. I feel like I was back in the forest again. I appreciate your choices in instrumentation. I felt like I was moving through an interesting landscape. The structure is a bit perplexing and I like that. :)  Keep up the good work!

Oh, I just noticed- you posted a new recording. Your unfinished first Symphony? It should be very interesting. I'll give it a listen...

Hi Rudi. Yes- I like Soundcloud because...it looks cool, and it shows the waveform, it's big, and tells me how many times the tune has been played. I got the Soundcloud idea from my friend's page- Ray Kemp.

What are you working on now? Today I am at the DAW, recording and arranging two compositions that I will soon submit to my drummer on Nantucket, MA.
