"Hi Fred, thx for the kind words. I have to disagree and say that your music by far, far the more sophisticated -- the harmonies and structure -- i don't have that facility, maybe someday.

Best wishes,
Karen"

"Oh I forgot, the requiem can be heard here: (and the lyrics are listed with translation). The voices are simulated -- just "Ah's" but that is the best I could do with the software I have!

  • Hi Karen!
    OK I will listen to the other movements I have not gotten that far yet. Like you, I also tend to write tender legato type of music.
    Yes I do write my own, but then when I need a piano solo for church, thats when I re-write the solo for orchestra, so usually the orchestra stuff is made up while the piano arrangement is already given.
    IF you look at my Video... that was recent...and I had to compose music for video directed and created by Zennor Alexander. So thats an example of my dense originallity :-)
    For sequencing I use Cubase SX3, for notation I use Sibelius 5.

  • Hi Karen!
    Hey thanks so much for joining me!
    Yes EWQL is East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra software I use to compose. Most of this you heard in my demos.
    What I meant my soft creative scores, so far what I have listened to, they are very passive & creative. :-)
    I am glad that you would like to be a link on my website! I will post it shortly. You can go to www.spdmusicproductions.com and click on the link Musician Friends. It will link back to your soundclick page.
    Stay in touch my dear!
