"Thank you guys! And thanks alot for the feedback. Really appreciate it. I've been composing for about 1,5 year now and I try to learn and grow as much as possible. 
Valerio: I use cubase, and I mostly use cinesamples' orchestral samples. I think the…"

"Very nice feel. Though I think the cello has a more plaintive, soulful sound if it is in a bit higher register. "

"It is beautiful.
The distinction of parallel basses vs opposite direction movement can be perceived
and it gives a better depth which underpins the crush of cymbals.
I prefer not to use parallel movement when arranging folk songs
but in your case…"

Valerio Dalla Ragione replied to Eirik Gisnås's discussion Ghost of Tom
"Very nice orchestration, its climax is very cinematic.

Graeme Helliwell replied to Eirik Gisnås's discussion Ghost of Tom
"Very nice indeed. Nothing particularly new or innovative in it, which is a strength for this short piece. The production is great, very atmospheric, realistic and satisfying. I wonder who Tom was.... and if he'll spend more time."

Kjell Prytz replied to Eirik Gisnås's discussion Ghost of Tom
"Beautiful. Sure you will prolong this, lots of space for that, both thematic and instrumentation.
I like the parts with the small format best. The grand format arrives rather unmotivated and could be fit in better, building more slowly towards that…"

Gavin Brown replied to Eirik Gisnås's discussion Meandering Streams
"Hi Eirik,
This works very well! The orchestration is perfect and supportive of the melodic line without overwhelming it. It has a good balance between sections and just the right amount of contrast to keep it interesting. There is a susserating,…"

Bob Porter replied to Eirik Gisnås's discussion Meandering Streams
"Very nice.Thanks for posting.
For me, the opening oboe and English horn solos were almost totally eclipsed by the lushness of the orchestration. Is that a bad thing? Maybe not. But I almost missed the fact that those parts were important and not…"

"I can see this song used in a ballet.  It's a moving piece and I'd love to see visuals for it.  Great job!"

"Thanks guys. Michael i do struggle with titles. I guess they are not that important to me. But yeah, I see what you mean. Sometimes I actually feel I ruin the whole emotion by giving the piece a name. Because I feel like the piece should not be…"

Jonathan Shearman replied to Eirik Gisnås's discussion Icy January - orchestral tune
"Beautiful. I don't listen to a lot of orchestral music so may not be much of a judge, but an evocative theme and with great depth in the arrangement. I particularly like the rhythmic single note that you hear at various points in the composition.…"

Eirik Gisnås replied to Agustin Loreto's discussion Some feedback on this first ever string arrangement.
"I understand that you want to move one with another. If you'll revisit it sometime I'll be happy to listen to it again. I think there is much to learn from going back to older pieces and see what can improve :) "
