Tom Prince replied to Gavin Brown's discussion Composition Competition #2 Proposal: Fanfare
"I'm in, though maybe it could be just a bit longer? Say 2 minutes maybe? 
And I'd recommend listening to John Adams Two Fanfares for Orchestra as an example of something a bit different than what you might expect from the term fanfare. The second…"

Tom Prince replied to Tom Prince's discussion DJ TJ - Funky Jazz Tune
"Thanks again. I was consciously trying to avoid "standard" jazz chord progressions in this. And I can totally see what you mean about the A section melody. 3 times is good, the 4th is overkill. Thanks in particular for the constructive criticism.…"

Tom Prince replied to Tom Prince's discussion Mondo Bondo - Cartoon Spy Theme
"Thanks. I do love the kiss off at the end (from the JABB library), I just wish I could get a bit better sound of of it in general. Or find another library for pop/jazz horns."

Gavin Brown replied to Tom Prince's discussion DJ TJ - Funky Jazz Tune
"I really like this. It has a cool beat, is very laid back, with a memorable melody, really funky. Good improv. The use of the triplets in the second theme is particularly effective. Chord choices good. If there is one thing I would say in the way of…"

Gavin Brown replied to Tom Prince's discussion Mondo Bondo - Cartoon Spy Theme
"Like it. It has good energy and totally fits in with the idea of being written for a cartoon (I've written some music for cartoons myself). Love the squeal at the end!"

Tom Prince replied to Jean-Michel George's discussion Composing with EWQL and NI sound libraries ...
"Wow Jim, I'm guessing you haven't done a lot of audio engineering. Where to begin. Well if a string quartet sets up in my living room there is going to be reverb obviously, since my living room isn't and anechoic chamber. As for compression and…"

"Well have a great vacation and hit me up when you get back home. It's so easy to do long distance collaboration now and I think it could be fun.
Tom"

Tom Prince replied to Jean-Michel George's discussion Composing with EWQL and NI sound libraries ...
"Now remember this is a very quick demo to show what mastering can do. I'm not saying it's the best it could be or even better than yours, but I think it shows more detail in the work.


First time I'm posting like this so I hope I'm doing it…"

Tom Prince replied to Jean-Michel George's discussion Composing with EWQL and NI sound libraries ...
"Hey Jean-Michel,
Musically I enjoyed both works. The only thing I found a bit odd was the piano scrap sounds in the Lullaby. I usually think of those more with the horror genre. I also thought the actual snare sample in the Lullaby didn't quite fit…"
