"Cornelis Jordaan said:Thank you Donald!
The scene it was meant to accompany was very much like what you described. Interesting that you say you could almost hear a choir! I do believe it is a bit of an illusion caused by the violas. I've also…"

"I can see the chase scene unfolding as i listen....galloping horses...the hero on the chase....the damsel in distress about to be rescued...its all int there. Love the mix. Don't what you're using for samples, but they sound great.

I could almost…"

Bill Ricci replied to Cornelis Jordaan's discussion What comes first - the notes, or the time signature?
"For me ,even before the notes, a calm quiet. Searching inward. Many times looking in so far that I see and feel the parts of me I hate..or love. These feelings wear vibrations(pitch) but are much older than the notes that represent them. On the…"

"If you compose a waltz or tango the rhythm comes first."

Greg Brus replied to Cornelis Jordaan's discussion What comes first - the notes, or the time signature?
"For me, the only purpose of time signature is to simplify the score and make it easier to both write down and read/perform. So I focus on developing all the other elements first, and then adjust the signature - whether it becomes plain 4/4, odd 11/8…"

"Thanks for the comment Zach!

I was actually experimenting with the panning a bit, moved my orchestral sections around a bit. Thank goodness its not a real orchestra that I moved around constantly, they might have attacked me with my own score."

"Hi Cornelius, good work, finelly I can hear a "pianistik" piano work other that "diletant arpeggiando". Andrew are right to expand that section and I suggest You to augmentate the end (maybe to repit the last phrase and after take the last "h").…"

"Very very good piece of music here. Interesting and dynamic with a hint of kind of that jazzy blues sound in some of the harmonies. I like that!
Very, I wouldn't say virtuosic, but hard to play I take it, but not at all out of reach of other…"

"Hello Salvin,

Thanks for taking the time to listen. Yes I did use a bit of a mixed bag of tonal language when I was working on this... I'm glad it turned out well.

"Hi Cornelis. I like this piece. It has some minor pentatonic sound and some whole-tone sounds and then some sophisticated, dissonant developments."

"Hi there Andrew,

I'm really glad you enjoyed it! I probably will end up expanding some sections, I can never leave my work alone once I've penned it. I think it is a bit of an itch. I regularly pick up works again that I finished months or even…"

"Hello Cornelis, welcome to the Composers' Forum. The sonatina is beautiful, virtuosic enough to attract the listeners' attention and interest, and understandable enough, as to the music form, to keep the interest. I liked especially the…"
