Rip away...the only way to improve. But thanks for the preface. Now if I can just get the Dana Point Symphony interested...
I\'ve worked on this piece a lot. So, its easy to think that I can get away with some of that. Busted. I knew I was treading thin ice but I wanted those strings. My ears are not that great. Both in training and in the fact that they ring quite loudly all the time.
I\'m going to work on it some more after I finish another one. I hope I can count on you to listen to another.
here\'s a couple of things that came to mind. The very opening section had a master volume ramp sound to me. Meaning the way it swelled in sounded a tad overly automation created. The other thing that struck me was that the percussive elements (the tamborines and clickity clacks, how\'s that for orchestral nomenclature usage?) were a bit more \"up front\" than I would like. This is really evident when they drop away for the little section at the 2/3rd-ish area.
Outside of these tiny quibbles, I like the piece a lot as a whole. good work man.
Sharmy\'s right tho, it would be great to hear this played live. Maybe submit it to that contest... oh ... wait... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]
