Ingo Lee replied to Douglas Locke's discussion Microcosms
"Very well done and enjoyable Doug. You have great sounds, good orchestration and strong melodies. I remember liking your earlier work but remarking that I would enjoy hearing something more adventurous and this seems more intricate and uptempo which…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Douglas Locke's discussion Microcosms
"I didn't quite know what to expect coming to this piece, but it sounded very grand and sweeping. There are moments of lightness and fun, as well as deeper moments of greater emotion.  It sounds like it would be fitting as a soundtrack of some sort,…"

"Here is the score.  I use a lot of tricks to make Notion do what I want it to do, so this is really messy.  Usually I just concentrate on the final sound.  I don't worry much about a neat and tidy score. 
Score"

Douglas Locke replied to Luis Jardi's discussion The Time Machine, soundtrack Ancient World
"Loved this music.  It reminded me of something that could be in the next Avatar movie.  Very professional sounding.  
I use Notion 6.  It's a love/hate relationship. I went and bought one of the better DAWs and Spitfire BBCSO Pro a while back and it…"

Luis Jardi replied to Douglas Locke's discussion Microcosms
"Great Work!  For a Microcosmos-style documentary, it would look very good! I like the "dialogue" you have created between the instruments.

One of my hobbies is taking close-up photographs of insects. On the hillside above my house is an overgrown field that puts on an awesome display of wildflowers during the summer. It's my favorite place to take photographs as it is teeming with…

Douglas Locke replied to Gabriele's discussion Ouverture Mélancolique
"I guess it's partially due to my lack of any music education, which takes me ages to compose even few seconds of music, and partially to my legendary laziness :D
Wow, this sounds like me.  lol.  
You're doing great.  I too enjoy this kind of music. …"

Douglas Locke replied to Ali Riza SARAL's discussion There is a Reason 1min 57sec
"I would like to hear this with actual people singing.  There is no doubt the midi doesn't do it justice.  I like the base and drum remaining constand during the rising chords.  Nice effect. 
It seems you're writing something that might be performed…"

Douglas Locke replied to William Swan's discussion Fugue for Brass Band
" I'm not a fan of baroque, but this piece is airy, and fun.  Some of the chords you used were clever and gave it a little more listenability for me.  Like others, I can't say much about the genre as I don't listen to it much.  Sounds like a…"

Douglas Locke replied to Marvin Cripps's discussion Videos
" This isn't bad at all.  People don't really do music like this anymore, it seems.  Though it's not really in that style, the chords and lyrics remind me a little of something Pink Floyd might do with more electric guitar and sweeping…"

Douglas Locke replied to Alfred La Fleur's discussion Solitary carnival [1:58]
"Very nice.  Simple, but professional sounding, if a bit cliched (nothing wrong with that if you are doing it as a soundtrack).  Agreeing with Dane that it made me think of movies like Cinema Paradiso and Once Upon a Time In America (Morricone…"

Victor Eijkhout replied to Douglas Locke's discussion The Wolf King
"Cool piece. Very nice orchestration.
I'm sort of with Rowy in this: every 10 seconds sounds great, but every 10 seconds also seems to be a new idea. I'm not getting a sense of unity.
Also I wonder if you're not too much tempted to use the whole…"

Rowy van Hest replied to Douglas Locke's discussion The Wolf King
"If I may offer you a little criticism, I wouldn't try to come up with something new in the orchestration every few bars or phrases. I also find the harmony a bit flat. Not much is happening.
The type of music you are trying to write requires a…"

Kjell Prytz replied to Douglas Locke's discussion Exercise - The Western Face.
"Certainly enjoyable. I like the speedy tempo and the rich instrumentation. I could not here much melody but the mood makes it beautiful and leaves a nice aftertaste. 
Well done.
Kjell"
