Michael Lofting replied to Stanley King's discussion Seeking collaboration
"Hi Stanley.
I was raised a Catholic but now I am an atheist.

I wish you well in your endeavour.
Unless you would like the challenge of working with me....."

Stanley King replied to Gavin Brown's discussion "DANCING" CONTEST - WINNERS ANNOUNCED
"I am glad I raised the issue as it has brought out useful discussion. It also seems to me most would agree that voting for your own piece is somewhat self congratulatory. I have narrowed it down to 4 pieces and since I won't vote for my own that…"

"Yes of course! I am not sure if I will vote for my own piece yet. I was just asking if voting 1, 2, or 3 for you won work was considered poor form. Gav Brown said:
You can do it. Please also vote for someone for 2nd and 3rd > Stanley King said:…"

Stanley King replied to Markus Boyd's discussion Sonata in B Flat for Keyboard
"A very Lovely gentle piece Markus. I always feel like a hypocrite when I make suggestions because I am a rank amateur. There are two places where the left hand felt too repetitive to me so when I looked at your score I can see that from 9-12 and…"

Stanley King replied to Stanley King's discussion Nebula
"Thanks Colin. It is, at this stage, not leading anywhere it is just my ideas about a nebula.  Give me about a billion years and I may be able to bring it to an end.  :D Seriously though, thanks for the direction on direction. Colin Dougall said:

Colin Dougall replied to Stanley King's discussion Nebula
"Hi Stanley
Sounds very nice indeed. This piece is actually well-named since its a bit nebulous in the sense that its hard to grasp where its leading us. They do say that it's the journey, not the getting there that counts. But it would be nice to…"

"Thanks Graeme for your very positive comments. I think it would be a good discipline for me to try and build this in to a piece without a huge climax as that is often what  I tend to do. I also think if I keep the strings playing those bars and bars…"

"Thanks Keith. I notice that most of my pieces tend to build to a climax at the end. I am not sure yet what  I will do with this piece, but if I build a climax it would have to be for some cosmic event. Keith Theodosiou said:
First I would like to…"

Stanley King replied to Stanley King's discussion Nebula
"Thanks Kjell The idea is to paint a picture of space. I tried to keep it thin and spacious and ponderous. I even thought of calling it nebulous. I see what you were thinking about in Smetana's Moldau piece especially the second movement/theme. I…"

Graeme Helliwell replied to Stanley King's discussion Nebula
"I could listen to this all night. In asking, where does it go from here, I think it's already on a journey. You could easily fill another 20 minutes of delightful ambient sounds, with or without a huge dynamic range. I suspect you have the talent…"
