"Here is my type-as-I-listen review. Hopefully you can make sense of this when all's said and done!
The opening is... mystical comes to mind. Reminds me of Native American spiritism. I like the quick pickup @0:45 with the xylophone (or marimba—not…"

Tyler Hughes replied to Matthew Pelandini's discussion In The Village
"I really liked this piece, loved the harmonic language, going from non-tonal to somewhat tonal seamlessly. I loved the interplay between the saxophone and piano and you really showed off the beauty of the saxophone's tone. I only really wished you…"

Michael Lofting replied to Matthew Pelandini's discussion In The Village
"Hi Matthew.
I write "traditional" tonal music but I can listen to a piece like this and think yeah , this composer has something worthwhile to say.
Frenetic, introspective, snatches of calm. Your piece goes through the gamut of human emotion.
I am…"

"At that tempo, there are a couple of challenges I see;  in mm. 38, the independent playing in the marimba is very, very tricky.  While maintaining a roll in the right hand, the player, in order to make the leaps, has to swivel his wrist back and…"

Matthew Pelandini replied to Tyler Hughes's discussion Sonata No. 1 for Piano
"really nice left hand stuff.  I like the overall arch of the piece.  Such a modern sound for a classic form.  Why a sonata? I'll admit is a great story-telling device, and a great palette for painting...
I like the clarification the octaves give at…"

Matthew Pelandini replied to Matthew Pelandini's discussion One Legged Man
"It is similar to storytelling, painting, or any other communicative art. 
As you know, we are all story tellers in our own way.
Thank you so much for the conversation.  This is why I like this site so much!"

"AH.  That is a great question!!!!
I REALLY had the think about tis when I was in school.  I wanted to be an intentional composer.  And I am.  But, to put into words how to choose note to note is difficult.  I imagine the composition as a cliff.  And…"

"A very astute questions.  As to the principles it was composed on, I think very visually, and that is why all of my compositions have titles.  The "One Legged Man" is a musical story about an encounter watching a man walk with only one leg (hence…"

  • Amazing music
  • I´m listen to your Dreamscapes and I am very fascinated, very good music! Can I get the sheet music?
  • I was wondering IF any Composer's here use Native I Instruments - EWQLSO Platinum or Platinum Pro Expansion & Symphonic Choirs or any who are also technical guys?

     

    I was promised Life-Time Support for these expensive products however they are liars and the support is virtually non-existent.

     

    I had my system stolen and had to start again and am having Installation problems I didn't encounter before some 6 years ago when I fist Installed them.

     

    Regards
