"Thank you so much for your thoughts.  I will certainly look at that link.  Wow.  At present I have turned my attention to what might be called the building of the set.  It could also simply be called my efforts to resurrect an abandoned village. …"

"At first I mis-read the question, so what I thought of doesn't apply to what you were actually asking about, but the topic reminded me of a film I saw while studying abroad in Martinique (a French island  in the Caribbean) called "Le bal." It's a…"

"This is Frank again,  working on the score for a wordless movie.  I have soooo many questions and would like input.  The responses that I got here already spurred me on.  I now have a playlist of potential musical "quotes"  which I would like to…"

"A great suggestion Graeme.  Thanks.  I am glad  I got onto this forum.  A development from just this evening is that I am now in contact with some Portuguese musicians.  I suspect,  though,  that they are not "composers" but more like "free…"

"Thanks. That is sort of what I thought. I will probably commission the works. I will want to have control of the timbres, the keys, and the tempos in any case. An example would be the first movement of "Christ Lag in Todesbaden" for an overture. I…"
