"Hi Gav,
I haven't been on this forum for a very long time.  I'm more of a songwriter than a composer.  The main reason I responded was because I got an email for a contest for Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, which just happens to be the main thesis of…"

"Can it be a song?  I wrote a song that covers all four elements.  I also wrote all the music for it.  I'm not sure how long it is though.  I think it might be more than 2 minute long. In fact, I'm sure it is. I could create an abbreviated version of…"

"Another thing I'd like to convey to a potential professional producer is to imagine this song as the background to a video.
In the video imagine a soldier singing this.  Around him is all manner of devastation in a "desert devoid of love" matching…"

"Sorry for the broken link.  It should be working again now.

Yes, I wasn't asking for help writing a melody to these lyrics, I already have the melody written for the song. I also imagine a professional singer might tweak the lyrics to their own…"

"Hi, here's my commercial thoughts, so forgive me right now. Great poem and heart felt. Now, as for a song, the best performers in the world struggle with a song like this, but can make a hit, why because they are famous and have a huge fan base and…"

James Burnon Ross replied to Noah Fraioli's discussion Instrumental Metal Piece (working title) No. 1
"Hi Noah, it sounds like it would be pretty awesome played on real guitars.   I'd love to see the score.  I'm interested in writing a similar type of guitar piece.  I'm also wondering what program you used to create this midi?"

James Burnon Ross replied to Sylvester Wager's discussion Poor, lonely Jazz category. And we owe so much to Jazz: every day of our lives.
"Yeah, but can't that be applied to any music really?

I mean, I seriously doubt that people like Bach, Beethoven, etc. thought of their compositions as "intellectual theorems".  They probably just notated the music that they heard in their minds. …"

James Burnon Ross replied to Sylvester Wager's discussion Poor, lonely Jazz category. And we owe so much to Jazz: every day of our lives.
"I only just recently got into jazz.  That's a very long story in itself. 

I'm not exactly a "composer" in the strictest sense of the term.  I prefer to actually play the music (i.e. improvise it) and then write down what I've done.  Of course this…"
