  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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
