1) Never use key signatures at the staff beginnings;

"Thanks for the link Ray. You are right, real performers will always have better control over sound. Though, a good virtual instrument can be live controlled too. This is another instrument, it should not compete with its acoustic predecessor. "

  • Mathematics!? Computer Programming!? Piano Improvisation!? You've just made a friend! I look forward to opening a dialog with you.

  • Thanks. You're doing quite a serious work yourself!

  • Actually my 'jazz' is some sort of twisted version of jazz- 'fake jazz'. Ha! Whatever it is, I am having fun!
  • I'd like to hear something similar to Two Jazzmen, which is interesting, but with pauses and a swinging jazz rhythm. :)
  • Wonderful music
  • Hi Andrew. I absolutely like your music. Although it already sounds great the way it sounds now, I would love to hear it performed by a real orchestra. I am new here on this forum and you're one of my first encounters here. Great! Thanks for your music.
  • Hi Andrew, thank you for listening and for your positive feedback. It's wonderful to hear such diversity in your music. Amazing compositions. :)
  • thanks Andrew

    I like your music, you can never say what is due to come, but you can always enjoy the present moment as part of an organic thing... two aspect normally incompatible. And, more important, never boring !

  • Thank you again. I guess convention will change... Really like the textures of your compositions...

     

    All the very best

  • Hi

    Thank you. Innate Affection was composed for an ensemble. Some of the musicians are not as proficient as others, but equally musically expressive. So a piece that would include them in the make it enjoyable was important. So some of it was composed so it doesn't really matter what pitch is played as long as it's in the right octave and the rhythm is played correct; so the interpritation could slip into improvisation if needs be...

    Do your compositions get played out? It's intresting how your peices hand together...

     

    Very best wishes
