"HI Andy--

Due to the type of music it was, i also had tried listening to it similar to that way..and as much as I did enjoy it, imho, I still felt a change--as I said, not a huge one--was needed..

Nice work--I enjoyed listening to it:)

"Thanks Bob....will certainly bear your comments in mind. For me the genre of the piece is such that I thinks it's actually 3 times too short. If you try listening too it in a darkened room while lying down it finishes far too quick/ The variation…"

"Hi Andy. You could try soundcloud next time. It is a site where you can post your music in widgets. "Ambient Life" is a beautiful piece of music and I think it would make a great video. The music suggests a cave by the sea with it's echo effects."

"Hi Andy (Sizzler)-

Ive listened to Ambient Life and I like it..it works:)

My only observation is that for me it goes on a little too long without SOME change--some form of contrast--and you lose me around the 2:30 -2:40 mark.

The short key…"

Thank you for your kind comments on Ambient Moon. I've just been having a listen through your playlist ..... very nice ...... and confirms for me that ambient doesn't have to be all slow amd mushy .... I particularly liked 'Dreamland' with…"

"Hi Andy,

Just listened to it again (Jesus, I wish I'd written it). What's really good about it is it's potential anthemic qualities. You could use the same progression at the end of the mass with a full scale SATB chorus blasting it out with the…"

  • Greetings Andy,

    I like your music very much. Thanks for sharing.

    Very best,

    Larry Elliott

  • Andy, what program do you use to achieve the realistic sounds in your piano concerto, which is a real ear-pleaser, by the way.

  • Really must apologize Andy for this very late reply. I've really been busy these past few months.

    Thank you very much for that link to the Cue Sheet FAQs. Every little bit helps to get one familiar with the internal workings of this machine. I hope to chat more down the road and hope your own endeavors are going well.

    Take care.

  • Andy... Your music is real...
  • Excellent Andy thanks for that. That will help with some questions i have.

    Mark...
  • "Ambient Life" is a beautiful piece of music! Kudos. :)
  • Andy, call me a traditionalist, but I'm having trouble with the percussion on 'Credo'. I understand that nowadays, composers (karl jenkins etc) are striving to create some sort of originality with their music, but after a promising intro and a wonderfully original chord progression, I'm not sure it works for me. Having said that, I'm only one person and I'm sure most other people may feel differently. Now the Kyrie (achingly beautiful) has come on, and I'm thinking maybe the contrast will work. I don't know.
  • Ambient Life is an interesting track. I can hear your references to Enya among all the other stuff going on in the track. I like that it isn't too laid back because those wishy-washy laid back ambient tracks are what gives new age music a bad name. Good job at keeping it roughly ambient yet lively enough to be interesting to concentrate on listening to rather than just playing in the background.
  • Andy, I'm honored that your "Ambient Life" was done after listening to my "Dreamland". And I agree with you, Ambient shouldn't just be slow and mushy. "Ambient Life" is great! I like the clarity of each instrument, as well as the interaction between the different instruments. You know how to choose sounds that fit nicely together. Also, you must know a lot about music production, because your mixing and mastering are great and very professional-sounding.
    Funny enough, we share a military background: I worked as a lawyer for the Air Force for seven years.
    I'm brushing up on my music theory at the moment, but as soon as I start writing songs again I might knock on your door for some advice.
    Cheers! Anton
    PS: Where does Sizzler come from? Can I call you that?
  • Hi Sizzler, found this by clicking back from your Facebook post. I thought I might learn something; there's plenty to learn. H.
