OK. I invite anyone interested to listen to this. It's a very short piece for small orchestra. And I say listen, that's just what I mean. And leave some meaningful comment. Oh, you can say that the piece sucks. But that doesn't help anyone. You can say that it's a nice piece. But that's not what I'm looking for.
See, I don't believe that music is what's on the printed page, or in this case, a sound file. I don't think that music is what you hear, either. I tend to think that music is more what goes on inside as you listen to it.
So, if this piece does nothing for you, that's fine. Thanks for taking the time. But while you're at it, leave a note about why. You might think it needs a modulation. I think it's too short for that. You might think it needs some tempo change. It is constant for a specific reason. But there are plenty of other negative things to say. When you say things you didn't like, it tells me that you really did listen. So be specific. It helps me and it helps you. You'll notice I'm not posting a score. I don't think you need it. When you hear a new classical piece or a pop song that you like, do you rush out and get a score for it to study? I hope not, that's just weird. You make several judgments about it as you listen.
Maybe someone of you likes this. Great. Why? What about it? What part? I have a favorite 2 measures, myself.
Which brings me to the sound set. After I get a few comments, I'll share how I made it. If your first thought is that this would sound better if run through different software, or even if played by a live group, you are totally missing the point. Your not listening to the music. Even if I posted this using GM, you should still be able to listen regardless. Have I written good notes? Can't tell, listen again.
You don't have to, of course, but I think it's for your own benefit.
But I get it. Personally, I don't care for piano music. I tend to not listen to it here. I have posted a different version of this elsewhere. And I'm really kind of posting this version for Stephen Lines.
