"Timothy, I like this. Well done. I'm just trying to figure out what the high part is. I think it is marked Violin in the video. The articulation and sound seems more like a trumpet. Which is fine, it's a great trumpet part. Just…"

Composition on Pipe Organ- Naige'

 This song is an experiment for me in using a DAW I don't often use. I was surprised by how well it went all things considered. All parts were played in real time. I have always loved the sound of the organ. In this case the organ is the software Korg M-1 "full pipes".I didn't dabble in foot pedals in this compo. Maybe at a later time I will do that. This was my first time using it Notion 6 which my DAW hooks directly to.. I exported the notation file to my iPad Pro to do some clef work and…See More

 I am a Church Pianist/vocalist/Musician and as such some of my material caters to that direction and/or message. This is an older video, before my hair started to turn grey  haha........I  postponed putting it up because I struggled with the message for a long time because on the surface  it appeared to me over simplistic as a message to the masses . IOW all of our problems don't just go away down here, yet ultimately I came around to the message personally with all of the ups and downs that…See More

Timothy Smith replied to Gav Brown's discussion Flower for String Quartet

Timothy Smith replied to Gav Brown's discussion Flower for String Quartet
"Interesting. I didn't know a lot of Broadway music was written in Ab. You have probably heard that the key of A is sometimes called the happy key. It seems to give some music a lighter feel. Sometimes changes are made to accommodate a…"

I have been involved in music for most of my life although I don't make a living at music. I would consider myself a hobbyist composer. I don't attempt to market any of my music, although I have released a guitar CD. I play guitar, piano, bouzouki, harmonica, and am an aspiring violinist. I am a worship leader/pianist at my local church. My website online mainly deals with world and Celtic music styles.
