Thomas Rack replied to Thomas Rack's discussion String Quintet Movement
"I don't think there were any non-string sounds in the patch I used, although it is obvious there is a fair amount of voice doubling built in to the setting I used. In regards to the instrumentation, I would very much like the piece to have the same…"

Thomas Rack replied to Thomas Rack's discussion String Quintet Movement
"Thanks, it is intended to be just a string quintet however the VST I used for string instruments seemed to sound best when set to full strings, so thats just a placeholder till I can get it performed. Just noticed myself that there are a few bars in…"

Thomas Rack replied to Mantas Savickis's discussion Mantas Savickis - "The Dreamer" for piano (2011)
"Really liked the conversational flow of the phrasing you did with this. The floating feel of the quieter upper register parts I thought was particularly excellent. Keep up the great writing!"

Nobuyoshi Tanaka replied to Thomas Rack's discussion A few of my small ensemble pieces
"Hi,
I like these works., Because here is because they are often reflected in our emotions, including anxiety.I can not even imagine a modern society there is no dissonance.
Nice job, thank you."

"None of the titles for the EP were really symbolic of the song itself, except in the case of incoherence. "Panda" was only really called that as I originally wrote it as a soundtrack to a friends film which included someone dressed as a panda eating…"

Noah Fraioli replied to Thomas Rack's discussion A few of my small ensemble pieces
"Hi Thomas,

Of the three you had posted, "Incoherence" made the most sense to me as a song. It was dissonant, and dissonance suggests to me a lack of coherent thought, or confusion. "Panda" took me a while to understand; if you meant that pandas are…"

Spiros Makris replied to Thomas Rack's discussion The sustain pedal and note ties, clarifying my score.
"it shows up only one page for me but anyway. I would agree with Nate, but: if Thomas clearly wants the harmonies to sound together (for example, measures 1 and 2) he should note it (as he has already done). I consider it a very basic decision wether…"

Thomas Rack replied to Thomas Rack's discussion First completed piece for my latest large ensemble work.
"Thanks for the feedback, the piano part was a little off the cuff as it was the only part which I hadn't written out at that point so a lot of poor improv was there which I will definitely revise for the next version. "

Thomas Rack replied to Thomas Rack's discussion The sustain pedal and note ties, clarifying my score.
"Thanks a lot, that does sound much simpler than what I have there. It seems that using phrase marks is something I'm yet to fully grasp in writing actual performed scores as opposed to up until recently making most of them purely for midi data.…"

Nate Mitchell replied to Thomas Rack's discussion The sustain pedal and note ties, clarifying my score.
"In general however, leave the pedal markings to the performer, the subtleties of piano pedaling are best left up to performers in most cases (except in cases where very particular effects are desired).  Simply indicate with expression markings the…"

Nate Mitchell replied to Thomas Rack's discussion The sustain pedal and note ties, clarifying my score.
"As a pianist, I can tell you that most sustain pedal markings will be ignored or interpreted rather freely.  Pedal markings are usually seen by concert pianists as mere suggestions, and they will generally follow their ear more then what is on the…"

"This work is, in short, a re-imagining of the 'professional-juxtapositions' school of contemporary 'pitch-class-perception' composition.This composition is the only one of its kind, due in part to the inclusion of highly-avant-garde…"

Jonas Aras replied to Thomas Rack's discussion First completed piece for my latest large ensemble work.
"It is plainly obvious that the act of dominating complex modulations causes one to become contrapuntal.  Your Wagnerian influence is the concept of juxtaposing orchestral oppositions, which modulates chords and causes bitonality. It is always…"
