"For me, I can't be overly protective or defensive about the age of digital pianos. I can see benefits to both. A digital instrument is probably cheaper to maintain in the long run, and won't detune when you least expect it. A real piano…"
"What a very pleasant way to start my day. I feel it deliberately holds back from expanding the themes too much and bringing in bigger, grander chord structures. Instead you give, in my ear anyway, a basis for hope and expectation. Take from the…"
"Nice one. Very uplifting and positive. Bob has a point with climactic pause. Maybe add a hint of a hanging high string to fill the gap just fill a second of suspense, then bounce back into the closing theme.
Good work. Keep it up."

"Do you have anyone who has access to better sound samples. I found the (what i assume to be) midi samples very hard to listen to.
In my own endeavours to gain more experience in arranging and working with a DAW environment, I'd be happy to run…"
"Very pleasant. I've been working on such a consuming, angry piece this morning that your step out of my mood zone had done me wonders. I especially appreciated the change at the four minute mark. Nice resolution. Keep up the good work."
"I'm a traditionalist and like to see my music fully scored out., although I also want to know what it sounds like as I write.
I know a couple of lads who work through Cubase and get some incredible sounds by just layering from a midi…"
"Funny what pulls you into a sound, isn't it?
I was listening to Cantus Arcticus by Rautavaara this afternoon and found myself lost in the blend of music and recorded birdsong/sounds. If you have the connections, this could make a really…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I have been performing for many years, on and off, in both classical/choral settings and the folk circuit.
In the last year, I realised it was the right tie to put some of my own ideas to paper/audio and began the unexpected journey that I'm now on.
Feeling no firm commitment to a style or format, ensemble or solo, my early works have embraced a range of musical snippets which have wetted my appetite for more.
I'm here, on this forum, to share, learn and enhance my own work, whilst offering ideas and encouragement to others.
