Looking for advice before producing it.  What do you think of the percussion? the melody?  Any advice appreciated. Thanks,

I posted a video on Youtube of me playing one of my violin/piano compositions, Forward Not Back http://www.youtube.com/user/sandysoul99Appreciate any comments, I know the sound quality is not great.  It's just a live performance with my average video camera.  Hope you like the melody.  One of these days, the technical aspects will improve.See More

"It has a lot of nice changes.  I can learn so much just from listening to the way you smoothly transitioned to a different ambiance but kept the same overall feeling.  Excellent!"

"I started this piece month's ago, so the resemblance is coincidence.  I'm going to redo the percussion. I'm going to take a step back and relook at that.  Thanks so much for listening."

This one has better volume, sorry for the TRIPLE post. Just listen to this one.

Sandy Herrault replied to Mark Grand's discussion Zemfaza
"For my tastes, it pleasingly melodic.  That's what I find most interesting.  The minimalist approach is nice, but then it seems it needs more body after about 1/2 the way through.  More countermelody, etc..."

My Music

Posted on March 16, 2011 at 4:49pm 2 Comments

Here's my first entry.  I wrote the music for a trailer, Fall of the Hunter's Moon.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWT-21xbMAI

I didn't write the flute part, but all the violin parts under it, about 7 lines and the jig are all original.  I then recorded them at my home studio.  I'm working on another trailer now, in Protools and Kontakt 4, after composing in Sibelius. Thanks, Sandy

Thanks Sandy.  I sort of live in 2 worlds. On the violin I read music and play works of other composers, but I prefer composing by ear for some reason.  Thanks for listening.  I enjoyed your piece too.  That's fantastic that you've composed for a movie trailer.  I haven't done that yet.

Go to the main page. choose "start new thread" and choose "music dissection" from the drop down box. Add the mp3 and the PDF of the music to the file upload on the new thread and press submit thread. Thanks.

By the way I have a brand new piece on there!
