Hi, Listening to 'Tunnels of the Underground' - I like this kind of stuff. Love the sound overlay. Could be the overture to a rock opera. Listened to a little bit of Krays theme, but I just came in from the grocery store and have to go fix supper. Husband will be home in about 30. Thanks for adding me as a friend. I'll just let the computer roll thru your tunes while I'm cooking.
Thanks for the add. Martha Maria
Hey Sean, thanks for swinging by and dropping your kind words. I agree with you about ,melody in music today. Things are cyclical and it will come back around, they always do. Very nice tunes yourself. Stay in touch.
Thank you indeed for popping by with your very kind comments. I`d sign me up too :-) `ll cock an ear to your music when I have time - I`m busy re-editing 4 scores/parts as I`ve spent some pennies on an ad, so I`m getting ready for the "rush" - what recession he asks - surely they`ll buy!!!!
Interesting. I might have a look through the east west stuff again.
VSL does take a bit of time to get to grips with. And you have to soak it in altiverb but it's worth it I think. Just feel their programming is better than East wests - the latter has too many oddities and tuning weirdness to work as a complete library. In my opinion anyway. :-) Still some great stuff in there though. Some of the staccato stuff is yummy :-)
Ah yes LASS - that looks good. Not sure I have the patience to program each group of 4 or so vlns though :-)
Hi Sean. Thanks for the invite. Great stuff up on your website. I like the krays theme particularly.
Managed to get away from the doc scene for a bit as one of the composers I work with very kindly offered me some cues on a Polish feature he's working on. Once that's done I have to get some more tracks on my site and then go marketing :-)
Yep I'm an eastwest and VSL guy. Just deciding at the moment which way to invest a bit more cash. Either more VSl or the new cinematic strings...I'm not sure. :-)
About 2.30 into the kray theme you layer solo violin over your string line. That works really well! What is it? A sample from east west? A great idea. I must remember that. The VSL strings would sound so much better with a solo in there as well.
Sean, thanks for your comment and the friend add. I recently left a band that was trying to get signed... It's kinda strange; I desire, and have no problem with the idea of doing orchestral/film score music for a living, but the idea of becoming a "rock star" i.e: making a ton of money and fame from playing metal (I'm a guitarist too btw) really turned me off... Anyway, thanks for stopping by my page. You have some great pieces of music here. "London in the 50's" is really up my alley... slow, melodic, moody. Great production too!
Thanks v. much for the Friend invite, and your generous comment on my Tolkien song.
Not sure what I can do about the volume! It's a quiet song, and I am not sure how I would go about raising the overall volume level. However, will bear the issue in mind if/when making future MP3s of the songs.
All the best, and thank you for your interest. Charles.
