"There's always going to be lovers and haters regardless, don't let it dissuade you.
Cheers for liking my piece! If it makes you feel any better, I basically have no knowledge of music theory. I actually have a quite cumbersome method of moving notes…"

"It's exciting and catchy... Love the up-beat tempo. You could deffinately use this kind of music if not in a movie then deffinately in a video game's soundtrack."

"Thanks, yeah I looked at getting into notation a while back, but I just found it soooo tedious, so I stuck with the easier midi sequencing option just to get ideas happening quicker. Think it's about time I bit the bullet and gave it a good run this…"

"Haha "condescending?"... not at all, very helpful info, thank you!
I have tried this approach previously, but I found I was putting too much time into trying to finesse one instrument that I losing the overall structure of the song. Then found when…"

"Score work is laborious at best and takes a long time to get comfortable with, and everybody has to find the workflow that fits the best I guess.
So how do you input into your DAW? Notation software should accept keyboard or even midi guitar (that's…"

"Good point Dave, might as well do it right if the budget allows, but I don't have the complete answer.
For years I've used GenieSoft Scorewriter and then exported midi into my DAW, but it's a very limited, not good. I recently demoed Finale and it…"

"You can generate a score pretty easily, some DAWs (Sonar and now Reaper apparently) do it for midi tracks automatically. You can also export a midi track and then import it into scoring software such as Sibelius or Finale which will generate a score…"

"Cool thanks peeps:)

Dave, I honestly have no idea what you are referring to haha, I'm a noob with music theory. Do you mean build up the song in that order, or create the sections in that order resulting in all those instruments being layered on…"

"This sounds great I think, you set out your ideas and develop them well and it definitely has a "cinematic" feel to it that would work as a soundtrack for something.  Posting a score would help us to offer more comments and you'll need it if you…"

David Unger replied to Stu Lloyd's discussion Song feedback
"Stu, You have some very beautiful ideas going for you in this piece, but in my book it feels more like an opening to a bigger orchestral piece than a complete piece in itself. When the descant strings increase the dynamics toward the end I was…"

"Cool thanks for feedback everyone, so thorough, love it :) I never even thought about continuity until now, definitely an eye opener, will focus on that and try and incorporate it in my writing in future, thanks again."

"It is nice.

I could almost hear lyrics at certain parts, not your intention to make it a "sung" song?

But....Soundcloud is littered with "nice" pieces like this. Basic chord progressions with tinkling piano or similar.

Don't shy away from…"

"Hello Stu.

Very atmospheric overall. I do agree with Juan that there are discontinuities that need to be figure out and resolved.

One of them, in my opinion, occurs at around minute 1:00. Those repeating high notes (C,G,C,G,B,G,B,G,...…"

"Stu
I'm surely one of the most inexperienced composers in this community, so I’ll tell you my impressions as a listener... I like the idea of having a theme that is evolving, in this case increasing the instrumentation. I consider that this resource…"
