"Thanks Chris,
It’s pretty lonely here at the forum these days. I haven’t been around in years and I think it’s healthy, and when we can, to take an interest in each others work. Thanks for doing so as well my friend. 
Cheers,

"A lovely score. Sweet, lyrical and totally fitting Keaton’s film. I also liked the relaxed quality it had. Which didn’t over whelm but organically worked with the content. Eighteen minutes of well done wall to wall music. 
Congrats."

"I agree with your comments in particular about the over present obstinato and the mix.  I need to remind myself let a project sit for a few days before I release it. I've since worked on it and it's a better piece for it. I appreciate the time you…"

Jeff Brien replied to Charles Mazarakes's discussion LINCOLN
"This has an interesting mood; noble, reserved, and a bit sorrowful. I think it captures how you feel about him musically.
Compositionally, I think the bass is too dominant. It has a grinding ostinato that makes my speakers (and ears) buzz. You…"

"Yeah that Wagner guy seems to have been here already but he doesn't scare me... much. 
 
I'll thinker around with the rhythms and see what comes up. 
 
Thanks for listen and the thoughtful comments Paul.

Paul H. Muller replied to Charles Mazarakes's discussion VALHALLA
"I like the harmonies and the orchestration, but the recurring rhythm seems to be based on a courtly dance form and this detracted  from my perception of Valhalla as a place of great warriors.  One suggestion, FWIW, is to rework the rhythm into…"

  • Amazing works Great music
  • I appreciate your compliments on my choral music. I'm hoping to assemble an octet of classically trained vocalists to perform and record A Dawn Never Ending this summer. It would be nice not to have to hear a virtual performance of my music. ;)

  • HI Charles and welcome.My first  name actualy it's Panagiotis (greek name).I think that Mazarakes its a greek name too!!(Μαζαράκης??).
