    Need critique / help.. please have a listen :)


    I like it, but there\'s something odd about the strings part.. I can\'t put my finger on it. Maybe it needs to be filled out with the horns. Or maybe something with the counterpoint is strange. Anyone?

    Thanks for listening!

    well it\'s not that odd. However, I think I heard some parallel 5th\'s in the strings. If true, then it\'s NoNo if you\'re seeking a true counterpoint.


    Ps. If you send me the score, I could check it out for you.

    For a guy who doesn\'t profess to know much theory, I\'d say you do pretty well indeed. I
    especially like your realistic soundstage- I really feel like I\'ve got a seat up front and center for the orchestra.

    I\'ve noticed that you don\'t have violas toward the center. Could you possibly enhance the string sound by doing this? I know it tends to obscure the woodwinds, which are very unobstructed as is. Anyway, I think you have a winner. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks guys!

    I think the problem is this: towards the end of the string part , the bass (cello + bass, doubled) hit a C that sounds weird. The whole bass line from where the strings come in goes like this:

    D C Eb D Bb C D A

    That third-from-last C is the culprit, it doesn\'t go. In fact, maybe even the Bb before it sounds out of place. I\'ll have to tweak it later to see if I can make it sound nicer.

    Thanks for listening, glad you like the piece [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
