H. S. Teoh replied to Jana Cole's discussion My first ambient piece: Spaces
"It's nothing complicated, really. It's just that unlike real life sound synthesis, computer synthesis has a limited range of amplitude ("loudness"), so if your sound waves add up to a larger amplitude than can be represented by the computer, it will…"

Jana Cole replied to Jana Cole's discussion My first ambient piece: Spaces
"Thanks everybody for your feedback! I'm glad it's resonating positively with people. As for the distortion, I'll start paying more attention to that. I usually focus on the music theory side, but I guess it's time for me to learn and understand more…"

"Even though it doesn't have the high, bright polyphonic synths, it reminded me somewhat of the score Vangelis did for 'Blade Runner'. Nice work."

H. S. Teoh replied to Jana Cole's discussion My first ambient piece: Spaces
"The mp3 sounds a bit distorted in places; did you turn up your master volume too high? Or is your application generating amplitudes that are too large, causing numerical overflow? You might want to turn it down a notch or two, to prevent the…"

"Hi Jana, this is quite nice and works. I could see this as background music played in a subway or other public space."

Jana Cole replied to Andrew LeFevre's discussion Coming Home
"Well, if I had to make one suggestion, it would be to improve the dynamic range. When real instruments are playing, the timbres have an intensity that computer orchestras don't have. As a result, the computer instruments seem to lack expression,…"

Jana Cole replied to Olmnilnlolm's discussion The Discussion of Major and Minor Modes—Are we in danger of restricting our vision of what constitutes good music?—How many ways are there to compose?

Jana Cole replied to Andrew LeFevre's discussion Coming Home
"You're new to composing? That's hard to believe.

I majored in film scoring at Berklee, and I appreciated the way you synced the text.

Very nice as it is. You're obviously thinking programatically, and I can see the action as I listen. Thanks for…"

"Hi Victor. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to a bit of my work. Yes, I've always admired the harmonic subtleties in Satie's Gymnopedies. I'm certain there's some influence there. Now, my thinking in creating my pieces --- I don't…"
