"I think that, for the most part, people don't really listen. We here listen because it's what we do. Music is background for most folks. I tend to like a good film score better than most classical music. The general public likes Country better than…"

"This is a very well done piece.Sadly music like this often tends to get lost behind a movie theme or heard so often that people tend to tune it out as the fill for a movie. IOW they don't REALLY listen to it.

Neil Wighton replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion The Emperor’s Enchanted Box of Yin and Yang
"Rodney. I just loved this piece. It was absolutely enchanting, interesting, quirky and mood evoking all together. It very much left me wanting more at the end. Do you intend to develop it further? I feel very inspired to try something "different"…"

"Hi Timothy. I just love the warm, bright sound that you've achieved with this. It evokes thoughts of the countryside very well. I feel that the timing of the guitar is a little shaky at times and could do with a bit more attention. I also wanted the…"

"Thanks Dane. Yes the music was very much dictated by the video footage.  As my knowledge increases hopefully my command of dynamics will improve. Dane Aubrun said:

"Neil,
I really like your writing. Good job.

"Nice work.
Just a shame the video can’t be shown – copyright I suppose – it raises a few questions about dynamics. But as far as the piece goes, fine. Well done. The harmony all fits together. “Mix” is fine.
