"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."

Well you've certainly caused a furore on this thread.....lol
I listened to your piece with interest at first not sure what to think....... but it grew on me and I listened again. You do need to write what you want to write and I applaud you…"

"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…"

  • Andy, I love Ambient Moon. You've taken some really nice-sounding drones and atmospheric sounds and blended them into a very soothing whole. And you've spread them nicely over the whole keyboard. Good work!
  • Hi Andy,

    Thnks, I'll be sure to listen to your stuff asap and get back to you, nice to meet you...

    Cheers~

  • Hey Andy. I'm listening to African Dream and I love it! Very inspiring and beautiful work. Its like a fusion of new age and symphony orchestra styles and has great flow to it. Really fantastic work and production!
  • Hi Andy. Thanks for your kind comments. I like your stuff particularly your Gloria. Excellent :-)
  • Andy,

    Your Piano Concerto is awesome! Totally enjoyable. Good luck finding a great player to champion it. I have an idea of someone you could approach, but I'll send that privately. Just send him a link to this recording and ask him to listen. Even with a champion it'll be an uphill battle. Do you know any rich people who might be willing to make a donation to an orchestra to underwrite a performance?

  • Congratulations, Andy, on making EWQLSC sing! Your Gloria is also an interesting piece, somewhat reminiscent of Karl Jenkin's works for orchestra and choir. Thanks for sharing!
  • Andy, I like your experimental work, especially African Dream: I feel at home listening to something like that, because it's unique and fresh. I'm tired of listening to the same old sound from most film composers. Good luck to you!
  • I really like the Octet rendition of Have yourself a merry little X-mass...You should try Garritan for your piano.
    Cheers
  • Just added a 'String Octet for Christmas', please enjoy. Written for a friend who plays in a charity orchestra and various combinations thereof. Will be scoring it over the next week or so if anyone out there is interested.
    Kind regards

  • Ok Simon's persuaded me to upload the concerto.....although it wasn't quite ready, ie the volume is not quite balanced in the thrid movement with that of the first two and it needs a bit of tweaking from the mastering point of view.....but at least it gives an idea.
    Please njoy and any comments welcome.
    Thank you
    Andy.S
