Tim Lawler replied to Olmnilnlolm's discussion The Experiment: Can you tell which is which? LIVE performance or ARTIFICIAL?
"Yes, if the question is amended to "Can you tell which is which?  Live PIANO performance or artificial?""

Tim Lawler replied to Olmnilnlolm's discussion The Experiment: Can you tell which is which? LIVE performance or ARTIFICIAL?
"O., I can't tell which of these files were recorded with microphones and which were artificially produced.  For me, piano is unique in the way its sound lends itself to artificial reproduction.  "

Tim Lawler replied to Olmnilnlolm's discussion The Experiment: Can you tell which is which? LIVE performance or ARTIFICIAL?
"O., I listened to each sample file and enjoyed them all.  In my listening experience piano is the hardest instrument to differentiate between an acoustic source and an artificial one (given that the artificial is well executed, as…"

Tim Lawler replied to Ian Ring's discussion Tips for getting played on Classical Radio?
"Ian, this may or may not apply to your situation.   I had a classical radio station respond really well to a CD of mine that was sent to them by a concert series I was performing in as part of a promo package sent out widely in the…"

Tim Lawler replied to Gav Brown's discussion Fireworks Contest - WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!!
"I'm late to the fireworks party, sadly.   I just listened to your piece, Mariza, and it's captivating.  It's the playing as much as the piece itself.    I agree with Bob regarding your description of the piece…"

"Mr. O., I can only imagine that Baltasar G. would like the brevity of that. "

Tim Lawler replied to Wes Feeney's discussion New Member - First attempt composing for piano
"Wes, I enjoyed this very much.  It has a delicate, sincere and expressive feel.  I like the simplicity of it.  The placement of the ornaments in the upper voice was quite well done.  This is the kind of piece that would benefit,…"

"2Allegro.pdf Hi Tim ! I'm glad that you're interested. pdf score are there. but I do not know how to write music for the guitar. so that simply written in four staves. I think  three is enough . You can change and adapt this to the…"

Tim Lawler replied to Gav Brown's discussion Escaping one's influences
"I hear you, Gav. I often wonder what it was like to be a kithara or lyre player in ancient Greece.   ...where there were no expectations based on music's history, just emotional and intellectual response from listeners based on the…"

" Tim, thanks for the comment. I think the trio would sound interesting.  2 allegro written for four guitars. Is it convenient to play a guitarist?"

Tim Lawler replied to Mariza Costa-Cabral's discussion Animation by my 10 y.o. son
"Nice work, Son-of-Mariza!  My second viewing of it was in slow motion so I could see the individual drawings clearly in sequence."

Tim Lawler replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion Resurrection for Marching Band (Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion)
"Fumble typing...  iv7, not vi7"
Jul 24, 2015
Tim Lawler replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion Resurrection for Marching Band (Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion)
"I agree about the vi7 but it wasn't just the harmony at m.17 that caught me.  It was also (more-so) the way the horn was set in the mix based on the sudden, and perfectly balanced, dynamic shift behind it. "

Tim Lawler replied to Stephen Lines's discussion An alternative direction
"I like the ideas in it.   Measures 55-62 added a nice and, to my ear, welcome contrast. "

Tim Lawler replied to Alfredo Reis Deus's discussion Soundtrack for a documentary
"First I want to say the piano sounds beautiful, both sonically and in its expressive sensitivity. The strings supported that well. They sound artificial to me in comparison but artistic none the less. Yes, this is a composing forum, and audio…"

Thank you, Tim, for your comment on The Llittle Prelude.  And sorry if you get 2 responses from me (as I'm not sure it went through the first time around).  I will post it to the "music analysis and critique" forum a little later.  Best!
