  • Refer to my post from the other movement because this movement has almost identical critics. 

  • This forum is for constructive criticism, not trolling, Fred.

  • Ouch. It's like a spanking from my daddy.

    Gee I'm sorry Hunter. When you asked what I thought, I imagined you were making an honest request.

    So let me be more explicit. Your piece is, in my opinion drivel because:

    1) It does not recognize or respect the inherent characteristics of the instruments. For example, I am tempted to ask if you have ever played the timpani, or even seen one?.

    2) The timbre in which you choose to "compose"  emphasizes  textures which seem to me to be far away from enabling a coherent or logical sonic texture.

    3) There is no logic or consistency of either form or thought to your mercifully brief "music".

    4) My guess is that  you sit dabbling at some kind of electronic musical device with out the benefit of either training or a logical roadmap designed to provide a discreet musical image, yet you call your scribbling "ambulance ride". It could equally well be called "scrambled eggs."

    5) Grow up. Learn to write. And don't be such a pussy when someone calls you out for your incompetence.

  • Hi Hunter,

    Perhaps you might post a piece in the "Suggestions Wanted/Open to Revision" forum. I have done so before and have received some good suggestions from colleagues. By posting it on "Music Analysis and Critique," you are saying "here is my finished work, what do you think?" and then you may only get a one-time thumbs up or thumbs down from commenters without any actual dialogue taking place. If you post to SW instead, you are saying that you are open to ideas for improvement and you may get positive comments to improve your work, and even dialogue if you agree to make alterations and post them. While I am not a symphonic composer and cannot offer commentary on your use of instrumentation, I do feel that the piece you have offered here does not really work very well. I have also had the same impression of other pieces you have posted (I listen to everything posted on the home page feed). Some essential elements seem to me to be missing from your music - a sense of melody, harmony, development, and an original voice. One final point - from the frequency of your postings, you clearly have a lot of energy and love to compose, a great thing! Best to you and every wish for success -

  • Lets keep it tactful Fred. We don't need to resort to insults to get a point across. honesty doesnt have to be rude. Keep that in mind for future post.
