"Hi Dane
Just listened to this - catching up on stuff that I've missed. It's an impressive piece, no doubt. Certainly deserving of a performance by a good quartet. Words like "stark", "lunar", "austere" & "desolate" spring to mind when I'm listening…"

Just listened to this - certainly an enjoyable piece, lively, optimistic - a breath of fresh air given the current climate.

  • Michael,

    Just as honoured to share some great conversations with you.  We're all lucky that music is part of our lives, to whatever extent we pursue it.  Thanks for your kind words and much continued success with your work :)

  • Welcome back, Michael!

  • Thank you for the welcome, Michael. I have actually been a member here for a couple of years, and I have posted all of my tunes. I'm not sure what location on this website they appeared in, but people did respond, so I know they got heard. I posted them in Music Analysis And Critique. I have enjoyed the input from the members here. 

  • Thank you! I'm hoping to post more soon. I'm enjoying listening to others work, though I'm traveling at the moment and I can't access many audio files from my phone.
  • Skating is a fabulous little piece, reminiscent (to my ear) of some of Jongen's works. It would make for an excellent National Film Board score.

  • Thanks, Michael, I'll post there once I have the equipment/software for making PDF's of my music.

    I can see now that I'll have to learn how to use Finale or Sibelius or both. I've had both for years, but have taken only a cursory look at them.

  • Can't wait to trade fours on feedback man, I'll post some music soon. 

  • Thank you for welcoming me to the site and getting me started, Michael. I'm sure I'll see you around in the comment threads! Cheers, René

  • Thank you for your encouraging words Michael!

  • Thank you Michael!

    I have already taken my time to read a number of interesting threads and blogs and get used to this forum. I will be posting some music at some stage - whenever I'm ready. 

    I'm currently working on a very short virtual piano+strings+choir thingy which I hope to get to a stage when I can call it ready (not finished as they never are). I am still learning the ropes of "virtual  orchestration" and proper production practices. At the same time I'm  trying to learn how to properly structure the music and develop my usually shortish ideas to a longer pieces of music. I find it extremely challenging to get the musical balance right, especially with strings. Well, I think like with real instruments, it just takes a lot of time and requires practice and more practice to get it right. 

    Pekka
