I recently purchased VSL Solo Strings and I'm learning to use the free VSL player that comes with that library. Dane Aubrun has posted some beautiful pieces on Composer's Forum using VSL so I asked…Continue
This is a piece written for chamber orchestra that I would like to get some feedback and criticism on. It is a short piece in what is roughly an impressionistic style. All comments are welcome,…Continue
I haven't posted any music for a while so here is a piece I would like to get some criticism of. This is a woodwind quintet that is tonal and quite accessible. It is influenced by the classical…Continue
"I'm running late as usual, just put my contribution in the mail and gave Gav the details, it should arrive well before the 30th. Of course our post office in the US has some issues lately so we'll have to keep an eye on it, but it is…"
"Great use of rhythm and varying meters Gav, the pulse is never lost yet never boring. Michael has a good point about using counterpoint but it's a short piece and you do have some contrary motion there. I felt you could do more with the ending,…"
"Well done 8Rivers, this is pleasant and attractive. The repetition is effective and you include additional parts often enough that our ears aren't bored by it. You could have blended the two sections more smoothly, or even begin the…"
"Very nice Gregorio, your ability to inject fresh sounds into traditional forms is a great skill. Might be hard to actually sarabande to this in places but that wasn't the point at all of course! Thanks for sharing your book with us as you…"
" Ingo, I am familiar with some of those contests which I find interesting. Birds of a feather flock together. All depending on the group results can be amazing. What I have found is some of the better software has forums that seem almost…"
"We are pretty lucky Tim, pretty spoiled in fact when you consider what composers in the past had available to realize their compositions.
I'm sure you are familiar with the 'mixing' contests that are popular on some of the audio…"
"Hi Ingo, Yes indeed, it would be interesting to make head to head comparisons. I'm not sure how the results would sway those who have already had good results with one product. As you say, so many variables are involved.
There have been…"
"Hi Dane - On the subject of tonal and CPP composition I'd like to offer two resources which may be helpful. Most of us probably know most of this stuff but these are good (cheap) references. And if not then please…"
"Hi Tim - It would be interesting I guess to do head to head comparisons of VSL with other companies and I wouldn't be surprised to see mixed results from doing such a test. The problem for me, besides the obvious limitations of time and money,…"
"This is all very informative. Thanks Dane for this information!
Since I only dipped my toe into the water here with respect to the Synchron player most of this doesn't apply to me...yet. There might come a time when I delve a little deeper into…"
"I enjoyed listening to this Ramon. I appreciate that you have based this on an interesting theory and at some point I would like to look into this and other such approaches to composition but I'm honestly more interested in the result…"
"They both sound great really Dane, good melody, harmony and orchestration, you can't go wrong with either one. I suppose if forced to choose I'd go with the older one but not for any important reasons. There are many things…"
"Jon - Thank you for listing this resource, I was able to get to the video series from the second link you provided. I will listen more when I have time.
Here is another resource you and Dane might find useful. This site is Open Music Theory and has…"
"Fun to listen to Joost! Modern flavor but not too weird, nice rhythmic variations. There's lots of directions you could go with this and I'm sure you can figure them out. Just a matter of listening to everything you can find, maybe…"
"I agree with Liz that there are a finite number of combinations when using traditional tonality. We're all using chord tones and step wise motion with 1/4 notes and 1/8 notes, so duplication has to happen. There are websites dedicated to…"
"Very nice Dane and certainly different from some of your other works which I think is a good thing. If nothing else the contrast between traditional pieces and your contemporary works enhances the dramatic aspects of the latter.
What have you composed for? Or what medium do you work around?
Film, Web, Small Ensemble, Songs, Contemporary Ensembles
What is your favorite genre or style of music?
I like them all
Is music your main income source?
No - Not at all.
Where do you live?
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've played various styles of music semi-professionally off and on for many years, and written both instrumental and vocal material during most of that time.
