Socrates Arvanitakis commented on Paul Buckby's blog post Influence and style (input required)
"Hi Paul,

Paul Buckby replied to Michael McGonagle's discussion What would you do with 100 notes/events?
"I would interpret the 100 events as intentions, be it a musical element or otherwise. I would be inclined to have guidelines for an improvisation rather than 100 specific pitches. I always find it interesting to see how others interpret your…"

Paul Buckby replied to Janet Spangenberg's discussion What are the greatest benefits...
"I think that Bob is right in that we are not the best judge of our own work. Whilst I post very little in terms of works on here (Most of my work is written down on manuscript or is not suited to standard instrumentation or technology) I feel that I…"

Doug Lauber replied to Paul Buckby's discussion Sub Genre
"What are you looking for? Simply allow various influences to inform your own original music. Composers have been doing that for centuries. An eclectic album that comes to mind, is the Beatles' Sgt Pepper album. It stand out in my mind because it was…"

"I agree bob, in my first blog post I spoke of why cant music just be music without the need to pigeon hole it.

I have discovered though, that many artist want their own identity and create something which represents them and what they write and how…"

"Bob, I am very sure that you are very musically aware and agree that you shouldnt told to like something if you dont. I am simply pointing out as a general observation, aimed mostly at some of my comrades with whom this discussion comes up almost…"

"I'm glad to hear it! There are some out there who only look at Cage and 4'33" and write him off and do the its not music spiel... I am of the opinion that you should listen to everything! If you dont like it, at least you have tried to broaden your…"

"I agree, Grant Kirkhope (the banjo kazooie guy) has done some great work. He did a really good pastoral pieces for the viva pinata game. I am glad that game music is getting recognition because the quality of scores in the elder scrolls, world of…"

"Thanks Michael for the great feedback.

Sorry Village didn't do anything for you. Im glad you get an image of a deserted village from it though, that is the idea. Its play-on words, exchanging deserted for distorted due to the textural and timbral…"

"I feel like I have been misunderstood a little.

I am all for tonal music. I feel that the academy maybe teaches it more as gospel than that of finding and aiding your own style. I found if you do not fit the mold, think outside of the box, you are…"

Paul Buckby commented on Paul Buckby's blog post Translation - Suggestions

"Hi Gav,

Thanks for the feedback, it is appreciated.

I agree to a certain extent regards the structure issue, in 'tonal' music there needs to be a build and release of tension to fit the mold. It is the mold however that I think stiffels music.…"
