Hi all,

I would like to share my latest work for orchestra and several contemporary instruments. I wrote a specific main theme in places where a saying (the message) is put in the middle. I would also like to introduce to you a rather special tune that I've loved since I was young. It's written in a Sundanese style. The melody is original, but it uses notes progression known in Sunda land (in West Java, Indonesia), where I grew up. I would love hearing your thought.

  • Hi Sam - This is a pleasant listen with good sound.  I can't hear the words of the message very well, but maybe that's just me.

    Thanks for posting.

    • Hi Ingo,

      Thank you so much for taking your time listening. Really appreciated it.


  • A piece so easy to listen to. It's the early hours for me after a very hot day. I feel cool now as the night, still a little warm holds me from sleep. So this sort of floated through the warm tranquil. 

    The balance works very well and it flows. Only problem was the "message" was too indistinct, buried under the music. I loved the end few minutes. At around 7 minutes it seemed to get agitated only to rest back into calm, a flute solo before finally fading out. Ephemeral, ethereal. But it was all enjoyable and it looks like you caught me at the right moment.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Dane,

      Thank you for listening to the piece. Glad I could sort of help easing your moment. Appreciated your thought regarding the music.
