Hi Guys & Girls,
Since I don\'t have a website, and I wanted to make a track of mine accessible to a few people I know, I decided to use the \'Composer Vote\' area (MP3.COM takes forever!). Now, although I don\'t want/need my ego stroked, and in fact was not even expecting anyone to take the time to listen to my piece, it was a little shocking to discover that 5 people each gave my track a score of 1. I thought that maybe my piece just wasn\'t those 5 voters \'cup of tea\', but I was shocked to see the same voting for 2 excellent compositions by Noys and Jamesmcwilliams!!
Is there some immature \'composer vote\' gang that are just trying to keep themselves at the top of these massively important charts by giving every new composition a 1? I voted for several pieces, and the lowest I gave, for a piece that I really didn\'t think was good, was a 3. I gave an 8 and many in between. I wouldn\'t dream of being so harsh as to give anyone a 1! Maybe that\'s just me?
Interestingly, the piece I posted, which is a mock-up of the simplest arrangement of a theme from a film I had the privelage of writing for, drew praise from many of you guys, including Simon Ravn and Damon. Strange how the main composer, the Director, and the suits at Miramax liked it as well! Go have a listen to the pieces by Noys and James McWilliams. They are really good. I would easily give them 7 or 8. In fact, I will go back there now and vote for them.
If any of you \'voters\' are reading this, congratulations!! Are you happy that you\'re still riding high in the Giga charts? This is about honesty guys, not ego. You are obviously a very sad bunch.
