"Wish you a happy new year as well.
I'm glad that you like it. This was a very unprepared performance, which is why I didn't use a richer left hand part. I experimented more with it and it turns out this is all it needs.
I didn't realize it before…"

Spiros Makris replied to Matis Leima's discussion Where did the money come from?
"This is on the right direction but still needs work soundwise. The noise sample at the start can be made into a rythmic part through echo and chopping effects. I don't like how it ends abruptly.
The lead sound works but could be better. The baseline…"

Socrates Arvanitakis replied to Spiros Makris's discussion Kalamatianos dance in maqam zavil
"Hi Spyros,
I nearly missed this (for looking at a lot of other more irrelevant threads). I am glad I did not in the end.
I agree with your definition of Zavil as Mahur + Nikriz, but much more importantly I enjoyed your creative fleur and…"

Spiros Makris replied to Ian Ring's discussion Is it anachronistic to use Italian terms in scores?
"In my opinion, what matters in a score is to convey what you absolutely need to be performed in an accurate and clear manner. As a performer, if something is not written or at least implied, I'll do as I see fit-that may or may not be acceptable by…"

Spiros Makris commented on Spiros Makris's blog post Bach Allemande on the Bouzouki
"I think his name is Petros Andreou, on a 4 course instrument.
I didn't even notice it was performed on the original tonality-it's a very respectable choice, considering the culture of plucked instruments and folk musicians in general.
Personally,…"

Socrates Arvanitakis commented on Spiros Makris's blog post Bach Allemande on the Bouzouki
"Nicely played!
I liked the phrasing and the sensitivity of the player which lets the melodic ideas to breathe freely and to interconnect as well as the decision to remain in the original tonality (G major), which makes some 8ve replacements…"

Spiros Makris replied to William Allen Ellis's discussion Fallout 4 Trailer Score - Re-imagined
"The lack of sound effects, which I guess you removed along with the original music makes the result feel a bit boring, or lacking. I don't take that into account though, since it's impossible to have them anyway on a music re-imagining.

Spiros Makris replied to daryl sprake's discussion the reason why classical music is dying
"To be entirely honest here, most tickets for classical works are not that expensive. The fee for a night of the state orchestra playing one of the usual pieces (let's say, some beethoven symphonies), is about 8 euros for the unemployed and students,…"

Spiros Makris replied to Gavin Brown's discussion Mr. Bach
"It's worth noting that the most simple pieces are the hardest to interpret well.
Regarding this one specifically, the "orthodox" approach (which I usually follow) is to not use any pedaling at all, as with all (or most of) bach. At the same time,…"
