"Thanks for all the input, it is much appreciated. 
Roger, I am using Sibelius 7 notation software and the sound samples that came with it.  I think most of the instruments sound reasonably good for what they are.
For a while now I've wanted to…"

"Nathan,  I say 'Bravo' excellent job all the way. this left me curious for more, as tho'
leading up the something bigger and even more dynamic.
The quality of the sound is far better than some I've heard and the individual instruments are clear…"

"This would be a great opening theme for a suspense or dark fantasy movie, except I would lose the flute...too bright for this piece, at least for me.  I dig your progressions and the pacing.  "

Robert Hunter replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Mood Build
"It seems the opportune moment to develop would be around 2:10, where you change the ongoing motif of E-C-B to E-C-B-G# - there's lots of possibilities there - key change, development of the motif into a longer melodic strain, etc."

Nathan Wakefield replied to Natanel Arnson's discussion Some dance music
"This didn't really sound like dance music to me.  I don't listen to the dance genre that often, but what I've heard generally sounds upbeat/happy.  The beginning of this track felt serious or determined, not the "lets have a good time" flavor I was…"

"Thanks for the feedback.  Robert I have a really hard time creating longer pieces.  I usually hit a wall about mid way through and don't know where I want to go, or how I want to end.  A lot of the time the music evolves simply by accident.  A few…"

"I have nothing much to say..

Filmic. You fully master the art of building up the dynamics.

Good job"

"Hi Nathan,
I liked this piece, enjoyed how it slowly builds over time. Rather than have this simply peter out at the end, I can see developing this into a longer, more complex work.

Nathan Wakefield replied to Arun Sol's discussion 3 one-minute samplers of my music
"If you want some meaningful feedback, you should post a few full length tracks.  There were several "bits" I thought were promising, but I need more than a few seconds to decide if I like it or not.
The speed at which you changed songs was rather…"

Lawrence Aurich replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Pensive, an instrumental piece.
"Nathan,
     This piece has a nice flow, good combination of instruments.  For variety you might start a phrase on count two or three
instead of count one.  I agree that sometimes you may have an idea for a melody, but other times it is better to…"

Julien replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Pensive, an instrumental piece.
"I really enjoyed this, very emotional, you seem to work in a similar fashion as I do, find simple chords then work from there and get emotions out of it. Great piece, I'd love to hear it played by a real orchestra to give it its full potential."

Nathan Wakefield replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Pensive, an instrumental piece.
"Most of my music evolves from me simply playing around with instruments and chords.  I believe this piece started with the low piano chords and me thinking "ah that's nice".  After arranging the first 8 bars with strings and the guitar, the melody…"

Nathan Wakefield left a comment for Steven Paul Frame
"Hello Steven and welcome to the Composers Forum.  I'm pretty new to the forum myself and am a novice when it comes to composing.  I listened to the two tracks you posted here and think they sound good, but if you want a more in-depth opinion or…"

chris replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Fire and Rain (Theme for a podcast)
"Good piece, but I feel like you could pull 2-3 musical ideas out of it and expand upon those.  Always good to write something that can grow into multiple ideas.  I got a little confused when things had a "spanish" or "moorish" sound, however you…"

Nathan Wakefield replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Guitar&Harp
"Yeah Sibelius' convoluted reverb sounds better than the previous versions, but doesn't provide much in the way of control for the user.  Finding the sweet spot is tough and I usually, after a listening and tweaking for a while, decide its "good…"
