Thank you Tyler and like most of the comments here what a fabulous forum this is.
Thanks Tyler. I am already getting engrossed by the blogs, forum and chat room.. Haha.. I better be careful.. lolz and I already see how it plays... haha
HI thanks!!! I think this is a very exciting website for composers and I find the discussions quite interesting!
Thanks Tyler for the welcome back! It is good to see the World Music Group which I created is doing well in my absence! Actually, I am also experimenting with cinematic orchestral music now and one reason for my return to the group is to learn from others in this genre as well as contributing to the group myself of course. It feels good to be back!
thanks just the same....

Thanks for your welcome. But frankly, i'm only approaching you because i'm stumped for an answer to a 'technical' question concerning the introduction of a GONG into my next composition (piano concerto 2013.) Nevertheless i hope this qualifies me for acceptance even though i don't want to avail myself of its other facilities, or submit a profile, and so on.
