"Dear Marie-Anne,

I am listening to your "Tomorrow", and everytime I enjoy it more. I like the simple, intimate atmosphere you manage to create, so soft and delicate. But what I am most impressed with, is that violin! Wonderful writing indeed!!…"

"Hi Leslie,

Your work is impressive. I have enjoyed listening to it, no doubt how your orchestrator skills manage to give such a deep dimension to it. I especially liked "The person in the mirror", I liked the delicate texture of it, almost…"

Finally, I found your music here! I´m glad I did it! Very much enjoyed, especially "Ethnic influecnes montage", which I am listening to in a loop. I like the transitions! They keep the ear "awake" :-) I especially liked the 1:45 change,…"

  • Beautiful work.
  • Hey Yaiza, thank you :) I can't wait to hear what you, Marie-Anne, Mike and James are creating at the moment.
  • Hey there! Really really great stuff here. What wonderful styles! So fresh!

    Keep me posted with your news

  • Dear Yaiza,

    I very much enjoyed listening to 'I give you my heart' .

    Lovely sensitive piano blending in nicely with airy strings. I like the mood you created and you kept the suspense going. You did a very good job, I’m glad to know that you tamed your strings!

    All the best,
    Marie-Anne
  • Hi Yaiza, and thanks for your kind comments about my work. Snow Pilgrim uses Tonehammer's "Forgotten Voices - Cait" library, which is excellent. I routed the vocals through a "reversed" patch on Cubase's convolution reverb. I think the percussion was from EW Stormbreakz, though I can't remember at the moment.

    I'm so pleased that everyone seems to like Euphoria! It's a track on my album, and I had assumed it would not be accessible because it was so long and jazzy - but that seems to have been its strength. People's tastes are not easy to predict, and it's probably best not to try :)

    Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing more of your music.

  • What a beautiful experience !!! amazed!! Love each one of your tracks, one of mi favorites is: Hotel Paradise!
  • Had to post a second time to say that Gomyra (Gremlin Hair Morning) is great! I know someone who does bellydancing here in the UK, and I would love to have got a gig writing music like this :)
  • Hi Yaiza,

    It's been very interesting listening to your work - there's a lot of originality here. I really liked "Coffee Blue Aroma" and "Sweet". Working through the others now.

    Your comments about "Not What I Had In Mind" resonated with me - the same thing has happened to me quite a few times :) A small number of these became published works, but most are sitting on my hard drive, glowering at me... I think they still want to escape but I won't let them out until they behave.
  • Hi Yaiza,

    I like your language regarding composing - especially "coffee blue aroma". A bit "groovy & funky" - dance theatre style. Keep on moving!

    So long
    Ben
  • Thank you for your note.

    I wouldn't call my comments on your music particularly "deep," but I can't just say "I liked that" or "I didn't like that." Those kinds of comments wouldn't be of much use to you, would they?
