Greetings Marie-Anne,

The Violin is a very beautiful composition. I have two compositions that have some solo violin in them. However they are not on my page here. Thank you so much for sharing.

Very best,

Larry Elliott

Great music. Super awesome foundation, good use of strings, good libraries, good structure! I'm Stephen M Lloyd with ADENS SKY, I as well LOVE native music. Karl Jankins opened my mind! Great to meet you!

Most definitely!  Nice textures and statements...very inspiring indeed.  "The Violin" is nice.  I'll be checking in and listening.  Thanks for writing back Marie-Anne.

Hola Marie-Anne, found your site by acci-way. Totally into ME/N Africa rhythms and disparate instruments mash-ups. Māori rocks! Your use of contrast is very diametric, no cross-pollination. You also capture those gritty string resonances which I like better than butter legatos. Well done.


BTW: Congo Nzinga hymn you should check out. You'd have fun weaving its raw chorus with some of your string chops and orchestrations.

Hi Marie-Anne,

   Just visited your site, and listened to "The Violin" it!! Also noticed on your site that we use the same equipment...Mac & Logic.  I'm pretty new to midi composing but am taking some courses on line w/Berklee.  Here's a link to my site..   I have some music posted there, if you'd like to listen.  If you do, let me know what you think.

    I just purchased Vienna Inst. cube...big bucks for that. So I'm trying to get to know it, but having a little trouble with things now. 

   At any rate, I love you web site and your music!

                                Take Care, Bill

Hi Marie_Anne, thanks for your encouraging message - it's a great project but it's been dragging on for sooo long - looking forward to wrapping sometime in August. What do you do?

Thank you for your kinds words :) 

I love your Masia Mara - it's beautiful. 

Did you record the voices yourself? I can hear the South African influences in your works clearly. Such a nice element which compliments the strings so well.

Thank for all your positive comment, they make a difference to the way I feel about them. Been struggling a bit with listening to my own work recently. I'm really impressed with Masia Mara! It's been a real pleasure hearing you develop as a composer over this year. I'm excited by the direction you have chosen. Combining singing from other cultures combined with your classical influence is inspiring and sounding professional. One area that you may want to develop in is using natural pauses. Congratulation on your success and look forward to hearing more from you...


Best wishes

Hi Marie-Ann!

Thanks for adding me to you friends. Listened to your music. Lovely string writing. Wish I could write like that.

Sorry I was not able to talk to you during the meeting in London.

Best Toomas

Thank you. I think it helps so much to use real strings combined with sampled ones. I use a really good local violinist and layer all the parts. Id like to do more pieces like that when I get the time. Im sorry I didn't get to the concert for care but had to return home because of work commitments. Hope to speak to you again soon.

Dear Marie-Anne,

I am listening to your "Tomorrow", and everytime I enjoy it more. I like the simple, intimate atmosphere you manage to create, so soft and delicate. But what I am most impressed with, is that violin! Wonderful writing indeed!! Congratulations, thanks for sharing!
My best wishes! Biiig hug!! :-)
