"How easy would it be to convey these complex sub-levels of the poem's meaning through music? How would you go about doing that - is it like trying to put irony into music?"

"It is the stock Sibelius 6 sounds. I might export the MIDI and take it to college and see if I can get an improvement on it."

Jamie Sutherland replied to Jamie Sutherland's discussion Largo for Piano and Trombone
"I agree that it would be better suited to a different instrument. I was running out of time for writing the piece, so when I found something that flowed I went with it.

Jamie Sutherland replied to Henry Cavalier's discussion Thoughts about Composers vs. "Composers"
"@Ray - my apologies, I do use Sibelius 6, which uses rubbish samples, so in that sense I do embrace technology. I input notes to make chords on multiple staves to create the sounds which I wish to produce. I do not however scratch my head over bit…"
