David Hitchcock replied to Lassi Tani's discussion Piano composition
"This song reminds me distinctly of running around a town in a classic RPG.  I love it.  And I bet Lassi knows a pianist who could record this for him :) 

I don't want to try to interpret Tyler's specific meaning, but the one thing you COULD do is…"

David Hitchcock replied to Lassi Tani's discussion My first composition here
"I definitely like where you're headed with things here.  Have you done a "car listen" on this yet?  One of the crucial elements to mixing is listening to your track played back on as many things as possible (I usually try to listen on my studio…"

David Hitchcock replied to David Hitchcock's discussion Theme and Variations inspired heavy metal tune
"Thanks Renan!  I'm glad to hear you loved it!  This kind of fusion can be admittedly hard to pull off, and there are plenty of ways to get it wrong.  I'm glad this song stands up to discerning ears!

And thanks Lassi!  Funny it was a Finnish band…"

Lassi Tani replied to David Hitchcock's discussion Theme and Variations inspired heavy metal tune
"It's great! I like especially how you managed to combine different styles, electronic, metal and orchestral. I like experimenting with style mixing and here it works really well. It's interesting that it's over 7 minutes long, which actually felt…"

Renan Javier Cabrera replied to David Hitchcock's discussion Theme and Variations inspired heavy metal tune
"Hey David, usually I wouldn't really call myself a big fan of this type of fusion but color me suprised! Loved that whole intro bit especially the 30 seconds when the theme and chorus kind of kicks in.  
Also, I liked the pause going into the change…"

David Hitchcock replied to Lassi Tani's discussion My first composition here
"it's got some great spacing to it!  I myself am still exploring how to humanize these things as much as possible, but this sounds more like sitting in a room listening to an orchestra already.  There are a few different articles online that are…"

David Hitchcock replied to Peter Linn's discussion Pricing out a commercial gig
"I'm not familiar with exact pricing in this industry (yet), but I know something about overall marketing to consider here - you are worth what you say you are, at least in the eyes of other businesses or individuals.  If you want to work for free…"

David Hitchcock replied to Lassi Tani's discussion My first composition here
"I had no idea FL Studio was this powerful.  I use Kontakt 5, or at least Garritan.  What advantages do you find with EastWest and Apocalypse Ensemble vs. Garritan?  I'm going to be expanding my library soon, hopefully.  "

David Hitchcock replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Mac Pro vs iMac?
"I've found that as I get further into the realm of the music industry, particularly composing, that production knowledge and capability are paramount. I have an iMac myself - 2.5 GHz Intel processor with 4 GB of DDR3 memory - and while it CAN run…"

David Hitchcock replied to David Hitchcock's discussion Theme and Variations inspired heavy metal tune
"Alexander, the brief pause was intentionally abrupt.  The sudden absence of passion and activity I felt would be an interesting way to prepare for both the musical and lyrical content for the rest of the song.  Those tiny little beeps should…"

David Hitchcock replied to David Hitchcock's discussion Theme and Variations inspired heavy metal tune
"Thanks for taking the time to listen and review, Lawrence.  Yeah, that piano solo had absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the piece.  It was actually just intended to exist in the studio for laughs (the inside joke), and as a joke our producer…"

Lawrence Aurich replied to David Hitchcock's discussion Theme and Variations inspired heavy metal tune
"David,
     I have very little expertise in this style of music, but I liked it.  You could lose the piano solo at the end.  Oh,
Now I read your blurb about the piano solo.
Lawrence"

David Hitchcock replied to David Hitchcock's discussion Theme and Variations inspired heavy metal tune
"The little piano thing at the end isn't a portion of the piece itself - it's actually transitional material between that track and the one that follows it, and is something of an inside joke between myself and the studio where this material was…"
