Hi Jacob,

It is well constructed and atmospheric, with excellent production values. It reminds me of movie-music, I had a feeling of floating or flying over a jungle-land while the music played in the background. There is also a melancholy feeling about it. I think many of us modern composers owe something to the movies, even if we don't expressly think of them when composing. Were you thinking of movies when you wrote it?

Gav

thank you so much! yeah i am leaning that way but am definitely interested in exploring more abstract sounds and compositions in the future. i was feeling as i was writing it that it was leaning towards the lines of being reunited with a loved one, so then i just pushed it in that direction. maybe it was the way that i arranged the strings as to where it ultimately led me.

Hi, Jacob,

Is there a score for this?

Nothing other than wondering what was going on. I listened to the first minute and nothing seemed to be happening but that could be my ears! Besides...one learns through score study.

Cheers, Dane

yeah fair comment im still learnng so the next piece i write will be more in depth.

Hi Jacob,

it has a nice mood and atmosphere. Sometimes it reminds me of the Adagietto, your favorite?

The problem with soundtracks is that it doesn't develop, it circles around a common point of gravity. One would need the movie here to achieve the interplay. I am convinced it would work perfectly, with so many emotions and expressions.

Beautiful!

Kjell

thankyou Kjell yeah its a floaty mood, the next ones are abit more deliberate in nature. Thank you for relating it to that masterpiece , i can see what you mean, its nice to have a disscussion about music, the thing is you can always know more tomorrow.    Are you talkng about :

Gustav Mahler - Adagietto from 5th Symphony | Vienna Philharmonic, Leonard Bernstein

I was slightly distracted by the occasional drum chatter.To me it didn't seem to fit. I liked the string patches. I  am guessing maybe you were adding different elements to this using the drums in an attempt to break up the "sameness" of the sounds.

There was no significant change in dynamics and no discernible direction making it sound mostly like mood music to me. 

At over 6 minutes long I think there should probably be more interest added to it, unless you intend this for background mood music.

Thanks for posting it.

yes i agree with the dynamics only slight changes which may get a-little boring for the more trained ear  , i am woking on this in my new piece trying to add more elements and have more peaks and falls.
