I had this dream the other day where I was flying around in a Wonka's Chocolate Factory-like setting ... It was more like a gigantic enclosed park, and it looked very Tim Burton-esque, or something from a Mark Ryden painting. I composed this song with the vague image of my dream in mind the whole time, and I thought you all would like to hear it. The song is here: http://www.nigel.has.it and it's entitled "Into Wonka's Factory Land". Of course, all comments and suggestions are appreciated. Mostly Vienna was used, but I used some soundfonts here and there, and the percussion is all Miroslav.
I think you have good skills, especially considering your age.
I was studying classical guitar at that age.
Its great to see a young guy like yourself who's so
musically broad. That's a rare thing these days.
I like the piece. I like the detche' intro, though i hear a few
off rythym notes. Really only 2 actually. Maybe you were
de-quantizing and went a little overboard on those.
I think you did a good job overall with orchestration.
I realize with most of your pieces, you're going for the
evocation of a mood. Wich you accomplish.
My uneducated critique would be, though the parts are
smoothly connected, the seem unrelated at times. There's no
one memorable phrase that gets developed or repeated throughout.
But that may not be what you're going for, or what you're about,so......
I'm new at this orch stuff, so forgive any ignorant comments.
Either way, i enjoy listening, and i will enjoy watching you
progress in your art.
Thanks for putting up so much great stuff for us to listen to
for free at your site!! VERY COOL!!
As a preparation for listening to this song, i tied my leg on the Computer Desk just in case things get out of hand .
The intro got me floating a bit untill all the string section came in and found my self lying on the roof .
You've done a excellent job and this Does describe a Chocolate factory thing . Excellent. A great composer is before us people
