This video makes some interesting points about how different musicians interpret rhythms differently. Does anyone want to comment on this, I'm interested in the explanation of the Bernstein clip…Continue
"Very nice Kjell, beautiful sounds and I think the length is fine because you have enough variation and thematic material to make it work. I would like to hear more orchestration (horns, woodwinds) but lacking that is not a problem per…"
"I find your music well thought out and constructed Geert and therefore it is interesting to me. You are using familiar musical elements eg rhythm, melody, harmony and counterpoint effectively if not in a traditional style. You have limited use…"
"I'm familiar with the concept of aleatoric music but I have little experience with it so I'm just enjoying the discussion, thanks Ali!
It's all just communication, but score based devices are pretty primitive really. I guess in…"
"I have to agree with Ali that this is beautiful music Dane, and different from other pieces of yours that I have heard. The use of a chamber group in a linear fashion with a more 'modern' sound works very well for my ears at…"
"I enjoyed this Ramon. It is modern but accessible and the piano especially has some beautiful passages. I listened to both the midi and your own singing and neither version does this piece justice, so I understand your problem here and there is no…"
"Hey Saul, this is a very pretty, calm and soothing piece. It would work well as a sound track or underscore for any number of applications but I don't feel it can stand alone, for me at least.
One thing that would make this more of a…"
"That's a good performance, I think you did the right thing getting this vocal track Gav. The singer is accurate and has a good clear voice so the song is represented well.
You have a much different recorded sound on this track than on…"
"Dane I'm sure you're aware of MuseScore which is free and happily used by many. Apparently it will break out parts and export to PDF as well as MIDI to use in your DAW. To download and play with it could be a diversion while you…"
"Colin, I don't use either Kontakt or VEPro but I came across this post on the VSL forum
"I'm very pleased to say I've solved the puzzle.
Basically, I moved all 32bit VSTs into one folder which I called…"
"I appreciate your discussion of the use of computer here Ali but in the end it doesn't seem to matter, the final critical decisions are yours and the work seems 'human' to me, probably because of that. I thought the use of…"
"Well done Stephen, this has a good variety of harmony and rhythm in the right hand. I'd like to hear some more variation in your left hand, I think you could do that and still maintain your forward momentum. Thanks for posting."
"I like the way that the sections fit together and give this an overall arc. So semi-formal works for me I guess. Thanks for putting together a score, it's always useful for us I think. Scoring software is a pain I know, but then when…"
"The cello sound is great, of course the writing makes all the difference, but Spitfire has a pretty good reputation, right up there with VSL I guess. Can you combine the solo instruments for say, a string quartet or chamber piece? And the…"
"Yes I do like the counterpoint here Kjell, you've handled it well which is not easy to do. Your orchestration and dynamics are effective as well. Your piece seems to sometimes cross over between classical and romantic in the effect which…"
"We haven't seen you in a while Tim, I'm glad you're back. I see you have been busy and this is very well done. It seems cinematic to me, I could imagine a number of scenes that would benefit from this as accompaniment which is not to…"

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.
