"Hi Dane,
First listen:  Too much material presented too fast.
'One must conceal the depths. Where? On the surface.'
I could not perceive the depths at all.  It seems everything is on the surface.
Second listen with score:  Better. At least througly…"

"Very dramatic!  Reminds me of Walton's symphony #2 in terms of drama and language.  Not my usual musical tastes, but I did actually enjoy listening to it."

H. S. Teoh replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Prelude for Percussion
"Interesting concept! I found the persistent regular beat a little too regular after a while. I think you could leave it out in various places and/or introduce a more syncopated rhythm, just to break up the monotony.
Also, you could consider doing a…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Michael Bates's discussion 10 Variations on an Original Theme for solo piano
"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZapGoHuesUY
Why your link works when copied but not your original post is anyone's guess!
An enjoyable piece, Chopinesque to me. Nicely contrasting variations.
A live performance?"

"Hello Dane! I'm impressed by your work. Thank you! it is very very allegorical music. If you don't mind I will give an example of a composer who creates such allegoric music- Sofia Gubaidulina (Soviet/Russian…"

"Thank you for commenting and listening, Ingo.
Point taken about the clock beat but your remarks encourage me to have another go. The VSL percussion is quite a lot to handle, thousands of detailed choices. I haven't got the whole set by any means,…"

"Hi, DC,
Thank you for listening and commenting and I'm gratified that it made sense ....of sorts at least! Much appreciated as I suspected it wasn't easy to listen to.
I use mostly VSL, a collection I've built up over about 3 years since they often…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Music for Orchestra 7
"Many thanks for listening and your encouraging comments, Ingo.
Yes, most of it is from VSL though I still like and use some percussion from my very old samples. I'm pretty wary about percussion so it's good to know that it seems to work here. I'll…"

Dane Aubrun replied to DC Cornelius's discussion Ghosts In The Choir
"I thought this was a pretty good and adventurous item for your portfolio.
It seemed a little dense and blurry, probably because of heavy reverb. I definitely thought the drumming at roughly 1'10" had too much reverb, losing its incisiveness.
The…"

" Really like this.. 
I can envisage an abstract dance group doing their stuff to it.
Beautifully done.
Just out of interest:
what software (VSTs) did you use?
Peace.

Ingo Lee replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Music for Orchestra 7
"Very satisfying and accessible Dane I think you have found a happy spot between atonality and predictability here that we can all be happy with.  I'd say this is noorish but it is too sophisticated for that; let's just say there are restless spirits…"

Ingo Lee replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Prelude for Percussion
"You've definitely got rhythm here Dane, very inventive but cohesive development of a basic pulse.  The sounds are of good quality and blend together well and this is a technical feat too I understand.  It does have the quality of a classic drum solo…"

Unpitched or only vaguely pitched.Here we go, then.A prelude in the real sense - a 2 minute announcement that 'whatever' is about to start. Trying to come to terms with the sample list and handling - there's a fair bit of it. Prelude for Percussion…

  • Incidentally, I see you live in southern England (why I thought you were American I really don't know). I live in Hampshire, where do you live if you don't mind me asking?

    You are very encouraging with your comments about others' work (including mine) - I wish I had the same facility as sometimes I think I come across as somewhat unsympathetically critical.

    Best regards,

    Stephen 

  • Hi Dane,

    I see from one of the threads that you compose on paper and don't know how to produce PDFs. If it helps, my printer has the facility to copy and save as a PDF - the printer itself wasn't expensive (around $100) but the ink refills admittedly cost a small fortune. You might consider shopping around and buying something similar.

    All the best,

    Stephen
