Jos Wylin replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Genesis II, part I for narrator, choir and orchestra
"Hi Saul,
Thanks for your remply.
I agree with the narrator's voice (my voice) that it doesn't fit quite the total ambience. But this has a reason and a solution is to come with the second part. I recorded the text with the mic of my iMac and of…"

Saul Gefen replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Genesis II, part I for narrator, choir and orchestra
"Hello, Jos.
The instruments and voice have a certain  asymmetry to them. The narrator's vocal tone is louder than the instruments' sound. So I believed it would have been better if better daw had been utilized to contrast the natural sound of a…"

"Great piano job! I love the way it evolves although it flows so nicely towards the end.
Yhanks for sharing,

"Hi Saul,
Thanks for your comment. However, I don't understand your advice about 'better DAW software'. I use Presonic Studio One Pro as DAW, only VSL instruments (on VI Pro and Synchron Player) and as mastering software  Ozone 9 Pro. The used…"

"Hi, 
Thanks for the message on soundcloud.
 
I think that this is very interesting and beautiful music. I think it would sound much better with better daw software. It would give the piece an epic feel something that this piece could use.
 
Regards,…"

"Hi again, Jos,
This VSL transition is causing a few problems. No doubt you'll already be following the MISSION ACCOMPLISHED thread. I fear for those using their products professionally. A few seem to be in trouble.
I'm raising it as a separate topic…"

Jos Wylin replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Across Night Lake for Small Orchestra. 4'40"
" Great score Dane!
Good interchange of ensemble and solos, as if they're in a quiet conversation. The ambience and recording are of superb quality.
Just a small remark or question: have yoy changed the release tails here and there in the solo…"

Jos Wylin replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Genesis II, part I for narrator, choir and orchestra
"Hi Dane,
Thanks again for your comment.
Regarding the voice: I had to do it myself at home with the computer mic. That's why it is soundoing a bit off the ensemble. But when the second part will be ready, I'll record all the voices (narrator) with a…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Genesis II, part I for narrator, choir and orchestra
"It's always a pleasure to listen to your work, Jos.
I can hardly add to my earlier comment. The scoring is as good as perfect as is your balancing the choir with the orchestra. At no point do they seem to be fighting. At around 4'54" when a reprise…"

"Thanks Ali.
I admire your insight in the composition. But again, as usual, it's mainly a matter of taste and musical purpose. (You were right in your obeservation about the lyrics). Here, the text is the most important part, but unfortunately…"

Ali Riza SARAL replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Genesis II, part I for narrator, choir and orchestra
"Hi Jos,
I liked the disorientation trick at approx. 1 min.  You could have made it even more
striking if you had played with the figures also.  Your approach is rather loudness plus
orchestration I guess.
 
A work skilfully based on the beauty of a…"

"After the revision, there's a bit more presence and the final crescendo starts a little bit earlier in the brass section.
It has been added to the existing link.

"Thanks for this wonderful tribute. I love the use of the ethnic instruments? You've caught the right atmosphere with very simple means. That's great.

Jos Wylin replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Withdrawn
" Hi Dane,
This is a fantastic piece, wonderfully orchestrated. Musically, I wouldn't change much. I would only give it a little power boost to augment the drama and some more depth (room acoustic). But the instrumentation is perfect and very…"

Jos Wylin replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Concerto Piccolo, Part II (Ukranian folksong)
"Thanks Dane.
I received the song from a friend of mine (choir director) who asked me to play it on accordeon to accompany her choir. I was so thrilled by the melody and the chord successions that I almost immediately concluded to use it in my…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Concerto Piccolo, Part II (Ukranian folksong)
" Nice one, Jos. It sounds baleful but flows well. I liked the way it came to a semi-close around 3'11" to give way to a violin solo before building up again. I dare say the troubles in Ukraine are inspiring a fair bit of art at the moment so this is…"

    now we are better friends than ever.

    Did you post a contribution to the Dance Contest? Your Ballet may be a contender.

  • Hi Jos,

    It’s fastlane(Phil) from the defunct Garritan forum. I’m glad to see you on here. I became a member years ago but I haven’t been active for some time.  The prodigal son returns I guess. :)
