I use East West Orchestra, in a very personal way, and with a huge amount of electronic techniques. I tend to perform on midi keyboard and use piano roll rather than score, to get a more human touch to my fake interpreteurs. Scoring come for me later... I improvise very slowly
I agree. It's great to have a supportive group of people interested in listening and able to provide constructive and informed feedback. I appreciate your comments. The C-Lydian piece was an attempt to create an atmospheric piece in the fashion of Gareth Farr's "Waipoua" (not sure if you know his work, but he's a New Zealand Composer that I like).
I keep listening to your "Shape Shifter" piece. It's very tense and dramatic. The harmonic breaks remind me of Michael Gandolfi's piece "Soliton Waves" (from his "Garden of Cosmic Speculation" album).
How do you like Boulder, compared to Mill Valley?
Again, thanks for your comments and your music. I look forward to hearing more.
Thank you, for listening to my work. I'm currently working on an album- my first group of high-quality recordings that have me doing most of the work of tracking and mixing and performing. I joined the Remote Sessions Group here at the forum. As a result, I am happy to employ the services of Chris Alpiar. A great sax player! I'm also working with a session drummer who will record his parts at Nantucket Island- Seth Burkhart. Both of these guys can be heard on 'Solstice'. This forum is pretty easy to navigate. You've done the basics- uploaded your music, and you can write a blog, and reply to various posts by others, make friends, etc. There are a lot of knowledgeable composers and you(we) can learn a lot from them.
