Socrates Arvanitakis replied to Roland Mair-Gruber's discussion Compositions based on literary sources
"Well, I am slowly developing an approach to that sort of thing (music with literary associations) to suit my own needs mostly, and I don’t think it would suite anyone else, but it’s this: Because I write a lot of verses, I usually end up with a lot…"

"In my opinion literature (especially poetry) and music (as we mean it today) go hand in hand from their conception in the conscious mind. The ancient Greeks did not have a special word for music, it was just the art of the muses (the 9 daughters of…"

Roland Mair-Gruber replied to Roland Mair-Gruber's discussion Ragnarok (Roland Mair-Gruber) and the question about realistic soundscape
"Spacing the sections more realistically is a good part. I try to implement that. It's a good advice cause I try to make my midis more realistic. Although my orchestra template is not that way unrealistic: FL, Ob, Cl, 2 Bassoons; 3 Trumpets, 4 Horns,…"

Henry Morris replied to Roland Mair-Gruber's discussion Travel Through Time - Roland Mair-Gruber - Epic Orchestral Music
"Hi Roland ...
