Dane Aubrun replied to Andy Pattinson's discussion Exorcism : Scene 1 for String Orchestra
"I suppose it can be regarded as impressionistic in which the mood and effect can dominate.
(I'm hopeless at writing melody because of trying to move away from keys unless it's 'light music' so I'm reliant on motif (which can turn into a semblance of…"

"I suppose this was more textural. Its a good point and I will perhaps write more of a  melody style for scene 2 rather than textural again. Gav Brown said:

"Hi Andy,
I didn't hear a lot of melody in this one, and what is there strikes me as somewhat repetitive and I was not able to maintain interest -

"Oops sorry about that slip, Andy. I noticed the same in bars 78 and 82 not marked div so overlooked the closing line. I'll have to buy myself a white stick for looking at scores!!!

"Thanks Dane , I must add more dynamics for sure. The the bass at the end is a divisi but I must mark it more prominently. Thanks for the advice on the accidentals. Eerie trance scene coming up  probably using Whole Tone and Augmented chords. Dane…"

"Hey, Andy.
Great atmosphere. It works and comes over in the Hammer Horror mood though it felt more like someone/people escaping or the swirls over whatever demon emerging from the victim. Energetic, powerful, the vertical spacing is excellent. A…"

"Cheers Dane, new piece should be done before end of Feb. Looking forward to trying out the Discovery! Dane Aubrun said:

"Great to learn of your forthcoming work, Andy.
Discovery is worth giving a go considering they're still offering it free by the look of their page. It's fairly limited but what you get is good, except you can't turn the reverb off. Another point is…"

"Many thanks Dane. I am soon to get some Spitfire samples too: the free Discovery pack. It will be interesting to hear the difference.

My next work has become a terrifying piece for string orchestra and there is going to be another learning curve in…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Andy Pattinson's discussion Movement 3 of my Symphony in the old style.
"Hi, Andy,
Very little to say about this. Unlike Gerd though, I'm no expert on classical styles. So I can't comment on orchestration detail except to say the vertical layout seemed accomplished and the unison/octave doubling lent it clarity of…"

"Thanks Gerd, I did overdo it a bit. I was seeing it all as strings first + oboe and horns!

Gerd Prengel replied to Andy Pattinson's discussion Movement 3 of my Symphony in the old style.
"Hi Andy,
 I like your theme and the festive character of your work, but your intruments play so much in unisono (playing the same notes or an octave higher/lower) which does not sound so well. I would try to give the instruments more an individual…"

"Many thanks Gerd . Yes it is based on the Mozart 1st , well spotted!  Gerd Prengel said:
Dear Andy, this is very beautiful. Maybe I would do the accompanieing staccato notes with even a little less volume. 
By the way, your piece reminds me of…"

"Dear Andy, this is very beautiful. Maybe I would do the accompanieing staccato notes with even a little less volume. 
By the way, your piece reminds me of Mozart's very first symphony, K 16, 2nd mov. Do you know this one?
Gerd"
