Hi friends.... As far my knowledge is concerned certain genres of music need humanising. I see humanising as the art of adding realism. The true flavor intended comes out only after humanizing.  The…Continue

Thank you Shivaranjan.  I appreciate the comment.  I'm listening to 'Suspense'.  I like the use of percussion, and the counter melodies. Nice changeup.

Shivaranjan, I like your compositions very much, especially the Suspense Sequence.  I can hear the Indian music influence, and there's nothing I like better than the fusion of different cultures and traditions, as I think that is very fertile ground. Your music drives forward with some very compelling motifs, and the orchestration is very rich.   

I am curious as to what you mean by "humanizing" and "realistic." I'm guessing you mean it's more accessible because it's not atonal?  Just curious, because I certainly have ideas about that.

Hi Shivaranjan, I like your orchestral pieces very much. There's no need at all to put the epithet "amateur". Thanks for sharing your music! Rudi
