This is my first orchestral work.It might be a simple tune but it helped me get my feet wet.Any feedback would be helpfull.Thanks for listening.On The Ocean of Life [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
I Love it. Very beautiful and reminds me of film music. I only wish that I had written it. Congrats. You did a great job. The only thing I might have done differently (and this is only my personal taste) is to use the suspended cymbals on your builds instead of the piatti but still it sounds great. It is inspiring me to get offline and try to write something myself right now. Cant wait to hear more from you. Maybe you could tell us what your instrument list is and what you use to actually write (notation or sequencing software).
The title does it justice. \"Ocean of Life\" is cinematic and flowing. I can imagine looking over the ocean listening to this. Moments of calm and tumultuousness followed by tranquility. Very effective. And excellent arranging and balance among the instruments.
Thanks for posting this and I hope this can be posted on the GPO demo page.
Gary and the others on this forum. I met this man a few months ago and if it weren\'t for him introducing me to GPO, I would never had known. This piece is very special to me as a listener because of his great warmth and personality!
Musicman, I heard this piece in it\'s infant stages and ever since have been waiting to hear the finished product. This is as wonderful as I imagined it would be. I do have a love for the ocean and your piece has brought me to its shores. As for technical, you know me to be one who critiques from the heart.
Very beautiful. Awesome! Thank you for posting. See you soon. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Wow! I really enjoyed this so much! I\'m quite impressed! You\'ve been hiding your talents from us for much too long!
You really did an outstanding job on this. The orchestration fits so beautifully under the melody that floats so gracefully above. The spatial quality of the piece is most admirable - every thing had room to breathe. In my own writing, I find that hard to achieve.
Thank you so much for sharing your music with us! I look forward to hearing more form you in the future!
