Thats odd you could not reply, I just went to that thread and could reply no problem. Are you certain you were logged in fully? Please if you can check it again it would be a great help ;-)
Thanks for the positive feedback. We dont want to make a mandatory thing so we are really hoping enough folks can toss in a dollar or two and we dont face shutting down or making it for paying members only, a lot of the spirit of the community would be lost.
Enjoyed your C/F# video!
C and F# in and of themselves are fun to play with . Tritones are sinus clearers to the uninitiated. But folks like Scriabin, Ives, Stravinsky and others had fun with such a combination
Hey Pete, Thanks for adding. Wow, what a mine of information you are - I can't believe that I haven't come accross your page before now. Really enjoying your work and would love to pick your brains occasionaly too, as I'm new to orchestral arranging - Excelent.
Hi Pete, many thanks for that add. As a double bass player, I've always loved the sound of string instruments and the vast variations in nuances and colours they can create - albeit Tchaikovsky to Mahler, Mozart to Debussy, Brahms to Stravinsky.
I have really enjoyed listening to your tracks and often cannot tell whether they're real strings or software instruments. I want to upload some of my more string orientated pieces but haven't been too pleased with any string sample packs I've come across yet (except Vienna Symphonic Library - which I'll get sometime when I've 8 grand spare!! haha)
Hi Pete, thanx.
I am a music tutor (Violin & Viola) at BIS Jakarta. Please listen to the one of my composition on my page, this web, tell you about pentatonic of Java, Nusantara. Lovely. It's, 'SEMANGGI SUROBOYO' one of the real story that I have composed for my orchestra style. And it will be played, in concert, by NUSANTARA CHAMBER CAMPURKESTRA on august this year in Jakarta. And it's the first time for me, as a Music Director and Conductor. Feel free to inform me or give some sugessions or contact me. I have been learning & interesting about ethnic music in my country. Thanx, Pete for your information about Ahmad.
Thank you very much, me too I've to tell you that I liked your playing so much and I like your jazz playing on the violin,
Yes I have some very simple setup studio at home, I record my violin at home and sometimes I make several tracks to be big orchestra and sometimes I make tracks for the cello with my violin, record the cello part and shift it an octave down,
You can try to play the Oriental style, I can send you the violin part for one of my compositions for the violin and piano, you can listen to it Cousin's Dance.mp3
Please let me know if you like it to send you the score after adding some oriental ornaments,
Have a nice time
then I fell in love ;-)!! And moved to Berlin. Actually several members of the band found german wives/sweethearts, which led ultimately to the band's dissolution as we were all too far apart geographically. I found a niche in the media business and for the last 15 years have been doing the music for RTL daily "soaps", among other projects. I have quite a few colleagues in the fringes of the musical & theatre world. The Rocky Horror show is still a cult here!
Thanks for your comments and wishes on my wall, Pete! "4 years as MD on the Rocky Horror Show round Europe and the UK" - heh, I know a number of people who will consider that extremely cool :) I take your point about blogging, and oddly enough I have recently been looking into ways to incorporate it - either as a sub-page on my site or by moving the whole thing to a wordpress site of some kind. I'd rather keep ownership of the HTML for now though, as I like to have control of details :)
Thank you for adding me,
Yes I have simple studio at home, I use the softwares and my violin and I don't write my music using any keyboard, if you watch my video La Mush Anafor example you'll hear a big string oriental orchestra; that was just me and the violin solo also is me, I have many videos in the youtube.com as well.
Have a nice week end,
