"Hey Spiros, that's weird don't you think? So they never wonder on how to achieve that quality sound with a hi-fi system? Do you really believe that? Hmm, maybe you are right, I would even know how my piano was built from the inside to the outside,…"

"ok , got ya!
c'mon, you know what I mean, the clavi/harpi chord was there too, no? Concert pianists are always tested on their pianism with some kind of Bach music these days, certainly in piano competitions. Most of them have cd's with Bach and the…"

""If I do not have a good justification for these things other than "oh well , it sounded right to me", or " I couldn't think of anything better", then yes, I don't need any help, I can be a bad poet all by myself. If my poem touches the heart of…"

"Of course you don't care Bob: you're a composer and you can hear how it sounds in your head, with real instruments, probably? Or you read sheetmusic (you don't need to hear the music) and hear it in your head? Probably most of the composer guys here…"

"Am I not able to impress you with a good story because I can't read/write? Do I really need to know all that grammatical/spelling stuff in order for me to create a great play? Isn't music like any language out there: it's telling you something, only…"

"So this Lindsey Stirling is doing what Vanessa Mae did about 20 years ago...
What is so good about 'house' music? In view of the performer (dj for example): You would really know when you are behind the decks/in the dj booth: mixing music, creating…"

"Well guys, I feel a bit of "relief" when reading this :-) It's now about 3 years since I took my first piano lessons. A couple of weeks ago, I made my first 'composition'... proud that I was, I wanted my piano teacher to give me some feedback about…"

"Why would writing a "Mozartian" symhony these days mean you write "popular" music?? Because we stampted that kind of classical as being popular, right? I like this music so much, if I would have the skills to compose works like that, I'd do it. If I…"

Dimitri Asselman replied to Thomas Ellis's discussion Selection of my Works, Potential?
"Hi Bob, as to your remarks, I can agree with most of the things you mention.
Of course you won't become a better composer by having better sound libraries. And of course, If you can create music with 'only' the tools you have available, this might…"

"I think my question kinds of fits into your post Gav. Since a long time, i've been questioning myself: "Where are the Van Beethoven's, Tchaikovsky's, Mahler's, Rachmaninov's of today"? I can't seem to find them or maybe i'm just not aware where to…"

"They call it a 'just a folk song'?... now that's a kind of score to me :-)
your intro, sounds like a combination of dragon rider and a theme of James Horner's Titanic, so yes, very cinematic indeed :-) I don't care, I like it, but sometimes the…"

"Hi Thomas, 
without checking your last youtube link: I was thinking that your music ROCKS, but you are certainly missing the right libraries. Your compositions sound too, how can I say this "wussy, nerdy, too 'well-behaved'"? They miss the EPIC…"
