Timothy Smith replied to Robert Caley's discussion Hi folks!
"Glad you're over here Rob.  I am also a part time church musician, worship leader. I seen the invite to someone else over there. 
What libraries are you using? I just built a 140 track template in Studio One 4 using mostly Amadeus as a sketch pad.…"

Robert Caley replied to William Maxwell's discussion Concerto for Soprano Saxophone and Orchestra
"Hi William,
I really liked this piece, all three movements. Haunting and expressive, and it's nice to hear sax being used in an orchestral setting. The sax playing is exquisite, and the orchestral parts (especially the strings) are lush and make a…"

Robert Caley replied to Timothy Smith's discussion The Restitution
"Hi Tim,
I liked this one -- for whatever reason, it evoked some of the music I heard in some of the older, European art-house films I was exposed to in film school (way back in the day, maybe 35 years ago - I can't even remember the names of the…"

Robert Caley replied to Jos Wylin's discussion Pierlala Again... Tribute to a free mind
"Ok, I really enjoyed this. Just lovely. Each variation holds interest, and the piece is a great listen from start to finish. In particular, I like your use of woodwinds (something I'm still trying to get a good handle on in my own music), and the…"

Robert Caley replied to Robert Caley's discussion Two short compositions: "The Soldier's Hornpipe" and "A Song for the Trillium Queen"
"Thank you for the very kind words, Jos. I really appreciate the feedback. And yeah -- I find it really tricky trying to achieve a natural balance between the instruments, and hard to resist the urge to cheat if it sounds good. Sample libraries, no…"

Jos Wylin replied to Robert Caley's discussion Two short compositions: "The Soldier's Hornpipe" and "A Song for the Trillium Queen"
"Hi Rob,

Excellent cinematic work, both themes. The building up is perfect and the recordings are just superb!
Although the mix is rather technical and not so natural, the feel is perfect. I don't mean that as a point of criticism, only a remark on…"

"Thanks for the kind words, Liz. I'm a really big fan of soundtrack and scoring music, and that is the sort of stuff I'm trying to emulate. So, I'm thrilled you found my stuff cinematic. That was the goal. :) Liz Atems said:
You don't say whether…"

"Thanks for the kind words, Timothy. Much appreciated. And yeah, I am really trying to capture an old school, cinematic vibe with my music.  Timothy Smith said:
Hi Rob,
These are both excellent! I especially liked the second one. The sound stage is…"

Liz Atems replied to Robert Caley's discussion Two short compositions: "The Soldier's Hornpipe" and "A Song for the Trillium Queen"
"You don't say whether these were written for a film, but they have that wonderful cinematic feel, especially Trillium Queen. +1 to Timothy's comment. I loved the themes in both of them, and the instrumental combinations. Congrats."

Timothy Smith replied to Robert Caley's discussion Two short compositions: "The Soldier's Hornpipe" and "A Song for the Trillium Queen"
"Hi Rob,
These are both excellent! I especially liked the second one. The sound stage is prefect to my ears. Reminiscent of older Hollywood productions contrasted by more recent offerings where more unusual elements are sometimes mixed in. They both…"
