"It feels like trapped in a dream and trying to get out. It kinda did around 3:20, only for a moment as the dream seems linger on. How did you manage with so many time signatures? Did you plan it that way? or did it come naturally as you're writing…"

Ingo Lee replied to Sam Umar's discussion Two Pianos + Orchestra
"I shouldn't have said concerto, I was thinking of some short soli passages to vary the texture. If this piece is meant as a 'slow' movement of a longer work or as an underscore work you might not want that. And really it's good just as it is.

Sam Umar replied to Sam Umar's discussion Two Pianos + Orchestra
"Thanks so much for listening and giving your thought. For a concerto style I have posted here as well a couple months ago. Perhaps you commented on it, I don't remember. But, a piano concerto with double pianos, that could be something to think of."

Ingo Lee replied to Sam Umar's discussion Two Pianos + Orchestra
"Very well done Sam, nicely written and orchestrated. I find myself wanting to hear more soli or even a concerto style from the pianos especially but this works quite well as is.  Good work!"

Sam Umar replied to David Carovillano's discussion When Doubt Arises
"Just listened to the first movement. I hear it as a conversation or even a debate between the involved instruments, especially the piano and the clarinet in the beginning, before cello and violin commenting them. The 2nd movements, with it's…"

Sam Umar replied to Brandon Schwab's discussion Dear Wadjet - for Saxophone Ensemble and Percussion, by Brandon Schwab.
"Really really liked it! Since I've never listened to saxophone ensemble like this. In times, it reminds me of music by Snarky Puppy, which I'm a huge fan of. I believe this could also be applied to a jazz band as well. But the ensemble like this is…"

Sam Umar replied to Ingo Lee's discussion Chamber orchestra with guitar UPDATED
"At first hearing, the modern style of orchestra is playing, I thought "How are you going to insert a guitar in it?" But when the guitar plays, it changes the nuance into a sort of jazzy style but still with a strange melody on the strings…"

Sam Umar replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Music for Soprano and Orchestra (6 minutes).
" I enjoyed listening to thie piece. I somewhat see the form as a conversation between the soprano and the orchestra. I wonder if the soprano would have words in it, would that be possible, given the melody structure?"

"Hi, Ramon! I'm enjoying your piece here. Somehow it has, when listening to some part of it, a penrose steps idea going on in my head. It's certainly new to me.
Regards,Sam"

Sam Umar replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion Andante dolente for Piano
"I'm in the middle of working and found you work here. Listening to it feels just right. The calming melody in the beginning, and then the ryhmic pattern in the mid, with still the melody playing. The structure develops there, before it comes back to…"
