"Hi Jos,
this is a very nice piece, weill suited for a dance of some kind. I just miss the guitar to get it flavored as zigan.
Many amazing details in articulations goin on giving a close to live performance impression. You must have used an advanced…"

"Hi Riza,
I suppose this is an experimental piece? I experienced it as a hearing test, searching the bounderies of human hearing. I'm a bit older and some of the highest pitches became somewhat misty. (I hope that my headphones are not the…"

"I liked this. Simple, yet captivating. The modified minor scale gives it a special flavor that adds to its charm. Thanks for sharing!"

Jos Wylin replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Ziganeska
"Thanks Riza.
I do agree, but I had my reasons to write the fourth part in a bit more 'popular' style. And a second reason could be, that atonal music (even serial or 12-tone music) is not my favourite... I really like experimenting with sounds and…"

Ali Riza SARAL replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Ziganeska
"Hi Jos,
Amazing!
The use of gestures, motives, instrumentation tricks are so strong that
I believe you could make the same astonishing effect without tonality.
And that would make it different from many many similar tunes...
Greatly thanks for…"

"Hi Micheal,
Thanks for such an extensive comment and for having taken the time to listen. I'm glad you enjoyed the piece.
I'm a bit surprised to hear about the relation with Ravel. I love Ravel a lot, but I'm not so familiar with his works and/or…"

michael diemer replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Ziganeska
"Amazingly good sound! It would fool probably 99% of listeners into thinking they were hearing a real performance. the music is well written for the instruments, and shows off some of their lesser-known abilities, like the scordatura and…"

gregorio X replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Ziganeska
"Jos, just to mention that I wasn't referring to the 'theme' as being French, but the treatment (to me) of the material - linear and transparent - which reminded me of a French aesthetic ... In fact, Ravel did a virtuosic violin piece Tzigane, styled…"

Jos Wylin replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Ziganeska
"Hi Dane and Gregor,
Thanks for your positive reaction. The theme you're referring to is not French actually, but 'Zigane' or maybe a bit Kletzmer (jiddish). That is due to the uesed scale (the zigane scale: C-D-Eb-F#-G-Ab-B-C), a kind of altered…"

"Hi Jos.
That was alot of fun - folkish and a bit French. Light and playful. Totally delightful.
I agree with Dane, the production is just wonderful.
Thanks for posting!"

Dane Aubrun replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Ziganeska
"Hello, Jos,
Well, yes, an enjoyable listen and an idealised live performance. I've no comment to make even though that's a comment! The production is thoroughly skilled as is your precision with the notation, dynamic control and articulations. 
You…"

Hi all,Here's the 4th and final movement of my trio, written in the Zigane-scale (except the middle part). It's recorded with solely VI Pro (full) instruments (flute 1, viola solo and cello solo). Like the other parts, the hall is the Schubert Saal,…

"Hi Ingo,
Thanks for listening and commenting.
Indeed, Powerpan is not a part of MIR (it would be useless there anyway, because MIR has both IR and tail reverb integrated). What I mean is the Powerpan in Vienna Ensemble Pro or the one from the Vienna…"

"Very nice enjoyable piece Jos and a beautiful sound to go with it.  I know that VSL has to keep selling libraries to stay in business so I assume that they feel that supporting the Synchron system benefits their business so it's good to know that…"

Jos Wylin replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Contradance "La Lejeune"
"That is correct. All Synchron insruments are prerecorded with the acoustics of the Synchron studio (Vienna) and they are already positioned according to the ensemble they are playing in. It is possible to change these positions (the real Synchrons…"

  • 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. :)
