"No, I'd definitely prefer to be able to write big as you do. Your music has such a presence - awesome. I tend to blame my amateur software ;)"

I think the key to learning how to critique, is your own self-awareness. It takes time to become a good listener, someone who sees all of the details that create a powerful whole. On a daily basis, begin questioning all that you…"

"On giving titles to compositions, this is interesting as i rarely know what to call my pieces. Most of the titles are a mix of start date, initials and version number. I sort of feel like giving titles is a bit too sentimental or something! This…"

"If one can only determine good or bad for oneself then what is the point of even voicing an opinion? "If I like it , it's good. If I don't like it, it's bad" Is that how it is?
Is everything subjective then? EVERYTHING ? is it possible to be…"

  • Thanks for the comments on my stuff. I like your stuff, but I think perhaps you should invest in some better/stronger percussion - just listening to PixieDreams it sounded a little mechanical. Maybe one reason you like my stuff is because I feel I have been influenced quite a bit by Hans Zimmer.

  • I'm glad you dig my stuff, Beth!  To be honest, I wish I could write more "classical" sounding pieces like your music. I've recently started trying to write for smaller ensembles, but It grows into something huge and over the top. My new piece "Prepare for Space Launch" (check it out if you like "epic" music).. started out with just a simple string melody and blew up uncontrollably. Oh well.. next time.

  • Hi Beth, Thanks for the kind words. Yep, you will definitely enjoy better samples with more control over expression. (It's hard to do emo pieces with Finale.) Debut Score 3 has good lines and form. Nice and interesting interplay. It breathes. It would rock with better samples and more expression. 
  • Thanks for your comment :) Will check out your stuff later today when I finish song I'm working on. All best x
  • thnx so much! but what d'u think to do with my tracks for earning/money? :)

  • HI there, good stuff, exatcly the third score is for me the best. I like you harmony, is simple, but nice... But you should change sound bank...
