 A kingdom being born. So this song indicates a transitional state. I appreciate any suggestions. I didn't make this loud. I might not have made it loud enough. I'm trying to get a feel for what is a…Continue

I don't usually write pop music. This creation is in response to a contest. The challenge was to write a song about a misunderstanding.I did something I shouldn't have-scanned a new plugin folder…Continue

"There's a lot of life in this!  To me it seems to take awhile to achieve the buildup and the two parts don't seem to be merging perfectly in terms of feel. It's almost like two different songs. Please understand this is the…"

"Welcome David! For lack of time I wasn't able to listen to all of it. I listened to the first track and part of the second track. Very mesmerizing. Wonderful realistic mix.  I have the JB lib too but haven't made full use of it. You…"

Timothy Smith replied to Stephen Lines's discussion Christchurch Variations
"I found this a very pleasant listen. When you said you played horn I wasn't sure which one. This is a very faithfully reproduced horn.  Not much for me to add technically here. I think I probably need to take lessons from you. You seem to…"

"@Charles Holt, I hope you are correct in that projection.I'm not so sure about the commercial movie music and video game field. This is probably the group you're referring to. Composition for real musicians though. I don't think many…"

"@Stephen Lines, I apologize if my writing style comes off as extremely one sided and opinionated. When I read it again it came across as someone who doesn't leave much wiggle room for alternative explanations or maybe I should say different…"

Timothy Smith replied to Saul Dzorelashvili's discussion Trust In God
"This is very nice work Saul. Very reflective. I like both the music and the title. Sounds like something that string musicians would have no trouble in playing. "

Timothy Smith replied to El Praso's discussion EL PRASO - Orchestral/Cinematic Music Composer & Producer
"This is a great cinematic piece. Sorry I missed this one. I see you posted it on Dec 25th.  The snare seems necessary. Not sure what could be done about it, but it seems especially overt in my left ear compared to the rest of the mix.If you…"

Timothy Smith replied to Olivér Kovács's discussion Futuristic Life
"Thanks for sharing this Oliver. I am beginning to think that maybe my medium quality headphones are mid range heavy since I just listened to another mix that I thought had excessive mids. I will withhold any more comments on the mix until I…"

Timothy Smith replied to Timothy Smith's discussion Thy Kingdom Come
"@Bob Porter, Thank you for listening to the other version. I would agree in hindsight. I think the 2nd version is nice fodder for possibly more parts. The piece seems to loose interest. Not quite fizzle out, but close. I don't fault the…"

Timothy Smith replied to Olivér Kovács's discussion Star Genesis
"Thanks for sharing. The high percussion I found to be counter productive to the mix in my opinion. I would add more low toms or similar and do away with the high spoons sounding percussion. I thought the vocal pad was ok but maybe a bit over…"

I have been involved in music for most of my life although I don't make a living at music. I would consider myself a hobbyist composer. I don't attempt to market any of my music, although I have released a guitar CD. I play guitar, piano, bouzouki, harmonica, and am an aspiring violinist. I am a worship leader/pianist at my local church. My website online mainly deals with world and Celtic music styles.
