"Thanks James, this is very interesting.
You do not talk about the CC11 (expression controler). My experience showed me that it as also very important to use the CC11 to modelize the bow movement of the string player when you want to achieve a…"

Cyril C. replied to Adrian Allan's discussion Is there really such a thing as "inspiration" in composition ?
"Inspiration !!! That's a big word !
As Eric said, Nothing comes out without work. And So do I.

Inspiration is just the first little spark. The you have to work hard to bring your idea to the next level.
Inspiration is definitly a result of your…"

  • HI Cyril,
    Thanks so much for the compliment!
    Best regards,

  • Cyril,

    I really like your latest piece: "Morning" This is a very distinct departure from your Big Hollywood lineup and demonstrates some serious versatility in terms of style. I would say that this piece speaks with a much clearer voice. It has some real heart and is thematically adept. I saw people stretching and yawning. This song speaks whereas some of the other stuff tends to shout. I also like the contrasts here. You move around in terms of orchestrational density (texture, I guess is the proper term) and dynamics with some very nice thematic development. This is a real superior piece of work and sounds more personally yours than your other stuff.

    Bien Fait.

  • Sounds like you already are my new friend!!

    Good luck with everything.

  • Hi Cyril, Thanks for the kind comments and great having you as a friend. I love "Warlord"! great tension with not compromising space in the piece and great melodies! Nice Job!
  • Wow, this is very good for somebody who hasn't studied music! I would suggest you don't; it will probably tarnish your natural compositional style.

    Work on your production chops, which is always a real treat. (erm, do I keyswitch or layer elements? that sort of thing.) You're solid here, but given your choice of tools and style, production is going to be very important, so it really needs to be top notch.

    There are a few places where your orchestration tends to get carried away. (The Hans Zimmer affect) Nothing real egregious, just something to keep an eye on. Contrast is usually more effective than just turning it all on. I have this problem, myself and still haven't solved it.

    In general, though, you've got some serious talent here. Get an agent.
