"Hi Gilbert:
I'd be interested. I currently use Sibelius for writing and playback and would be interested in any tips and tricks you might have to make playback sound better. I use East-West with Sibelius but am considering others like VSL and Berlin…"

"Hi TT:
I really enjoyed listening to this piece. I agree with Gav about the sitar feel. Meditative almost. Interesting mix of instruments and style. A harmonica would have really sent it over the edge for envisioning the cattle. Thanks for writing…"

"Hi T.
Thanks for your incredible compliment! I love what you've done with "Apples and Oranges" using mandolin. The mandolin is a beautiful instrument. Why did you stop playing them? I'm glad that my music inspired you to start playing it again. It's…"

Robert Hunter replied to roger stancill's discussion Nocturnes for 'lesser hands'
"Hi Roger,
Initial comment: you need to activate the right hand more - it could be carrying on much more melodic content.
More later...

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."

Robert Hunter replied to Nathan Wakefield's discussion Mood Build
"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.

I really enjoyed listening to your "Two Part Motet" in Phrygian. I've never explored Phrygian, only Spanish Phrygian, so listening to your piece has inspired me to begin a composition in that mode. Thanks for the music, and the…"

  • Thanks very much, Robert!
  • Thank you Robert! :)
  • Hey Robert!  Thanks for the awesome comment about 'one torch!'
  • Robert, thank you so much for your comments!  It is not often one gets such thorough and careful listening as you have done for my music.  

    Just a note about flutes:  I actually use flutes fairly rarely, but really love the sound samples of clarinet and English horns with my particular program, and that's probably what you are hearing more often than not in my writing.  Since I write for chamber music rather than orchestra, the solo sound has to be good, and I have to say, the English horn is an amazingly expressive sound.  Eventually I'm going to have to get out of my shy little existence and find some real musicians!

     

  • Robert,

    I've been listening to your 2 latest, and enjoying your very coherent thematic material and your amazing developmental skills.  Frankenstein at the Dance is really a pleasure, with your eerie harmonies and monster motifs.  I can just see him lurching around the dance floor.  Have you thought of making this a suite of separate dances?  You certainly have enough material for it, and it might break it up in a nice way.   

  • Robert,

    Thank you for listening! I'm a little nervous being here, as I don't feel like a composer in the traditional sense. My background as a classically trained flutist with symphony orchestras does influence my music, but the rest comes from years of pent up emotions! Now that I've started writing, I can't stop - there is so much to say.

     

    Thanks again and looking forward to lfinding my way around this site and listening to everyone. How long have you been on this site? What features do you like best?

  • Hey Robert,

    Got a chance to hear your S2M1 piece.  Even over one inch speakers it is a good listen.  Particularly like the rhythm figures and spirited instrument combinations.  Looking forward to run the list as I can during the rest of the week.

    Best,

    tony 

  • Thanks Robert.  I'm glad you like the Finale.  If you are possibly intrigued by it, you might find a lot of questions answered in the previous 3 movements.  With reference to the EW Samples, I'm making good use of them now, but I seem to have lost the sound from the rest of the computer....lol.

    So when I do figure it out, I look forward to listening to your music.  From Dianne's comments, it really does sound interesting.

  • Robert

    Thank you for the response.  I'll be getting back to you.

    Regards, tony

  • Hi Robert - I'm listening to "Not Rest In" and love the restless back and forth between all the instruments and the recurring pulsing theme which serves to unify this very well-written piece.  Where did you learn to orchestrate?  Also, what sound application do you use?
