"Hi Emily,

I like the way this develops. Nice 5ths over the harp arpeggio? Definitely a melancholy work. Very reflective. Nice use of pads. Uncluttered mix. Clean and straight forward. I didn't have the technical issues listening on my system…"

Emily is there a chance of viewing a score at all?"

"Huh.  I wonder if it's because you have a different sound system.  I know I should probably check it out on other systems - I only use two.  Because when I play it on my system I hear it fine, right up to the end."

"Hi Emily,
The piece on Soundcloud is 4:01 in length, I see that it starts to dimuendo around 3:49, there is about 5 seconds of sound after that during which there are almost no notes playing, and then the last 5 seconds or so is quiet. It has the…"

"Thank you Gav.  I am actually puzzled about what you heard at the end - not quite getting what you meant.  What I put there was that minor six chord, a slight ritard, then I it diminished into the resolution tonic chord.  Very quiet.  I'm wondering…"

"Hello Emily,
This is an evocative work which envelops one in the sound and moodiness of it. The picture on your Soundlcloud of a snowy winter's evening seems to me to match the mood quite well. A memorable melody and a sweet and simple approach to…"

Emily Bond replied to Timothy Smith's discussion Composition- Ride On The Wind
"I loved the rich texture of many instruments in this piece.  In addition to the pedal point, which I agree, the ear loves to hear, the Celtic 6/8 rhythm is always going to appeal.  Nice work!"

  • I listen to all playlist, I really enjoyed it.

    non western scales are harmonized so smoothly and emotionally

    brava !

  • Emily

    thanks for listening!

    I use East West Orchestra, in a very personal way, and with a huge amount of electronic techniques. I tend to perform on midi keyboard and use piano roll rather than score, to get a more human touch to my fake interpreteurs. Scoring come for me later... I improvise very slowly

    thanks for your interest

    I'll listen to Lonesome Underground soon

  • yes you did ! 

    I had the feeling of huge feelings combined with logic pulsions

    I hope you'll like my music

     

  • Dear Emily

     

    Great many thanks for your comment. It was really nice to listen to your music.  Any chance of my playing a recording of Souring in our local church one Sunday?

     

    There appears to be an Eastern mystical quality to some of it.  Is that a correct inference? 

  • Thanks Emily,

    I agree. It's great to have a supportive group of people interested in listening and able to provide constructive and informed feedback. I appreciate your comments. The C-Lydian piece was an attempt to create an atmospheric piece in the fashion of Gareth Farr's "Waipoua" (not sure if you know his work, but he's a New Zealand Composer that I like).

    I keep listening to your "Shape Shifter" piece. It's very tense and dramatic. The harmonic breaks remind me of Michael Gandolfi's piece "Soliton Waves" (from his "Garden of Cosmic Speculation" album).

    How do you like Boulder, compared to Mill Valley?

    Again, thanks for your comments and your music. I look forward to hearing more.

  • Ah yes- the Grand Canyon is awesome. My favorite is Zion Park.
  • Pure Genius... Wonderful music.
  • Thank you, for listening to my work. I'm currently working on an album- my first group of high-quality recordings that have me doing most of the work of tracking and mixing and performing. I joined the Remote Sessions Group here at the forum. As a result, I am happy to employ the services of Chris Alpiar. A great sax player! I'm also working with a session drummer who will record his parts at Nantucket Island- Seth Burkhart. Both of these guys can be heard on 'Solstice'. This forum is pretty easy to navigate. You've done the basics- uploaded your music, and you can write a blog, and reply to various posts by others, make friends, etc. There are a lot of knowledgeable composers and you(we) can learn a lot from them.
