very good compositions...just one thing regarding orchestration , on "An easy task" one or more flutes playing in octaves with the piccolo would work better...my point of view...
...there´s also some things that didn´t please me on the EQ...but I never comment about it...ciao!!!

Gave them a listen. Compositionally they're nice.. different that what I normally gravitate to, but I enjoyed listening to them. I feel I know you better because of it. I think I liked the Waltz the best out of the three. I would agree with Leo that a few spots didn't please me in regards to eq, but as you and I know, that probably boils down to 'taste'... I now you like it darker more muted than I.... no biggie.

Newman???) - sounds like him - or he sounds like you .

thanks for your replies.
Leo: thanks. About the flutes playing with piccolo, they are there already, but i'm afraid they loosed in the mix because the piccolo is too high.
Yeah, some eq issues are due to my mixes with headphones, i'm working to fix that for future releases.
Kid: Yes, you know more about what i like ...i said to you that my comments to your mix are mainly due to my "darkish" preference.
Rob, many thanks for the nice words. About libraries used:
- SISS mini
- EWQL Silver strings and percussions
- Advanced orchestra woodwinds
- Sam Solo session brass for all brass sounds
- Various percussions, from Silver and from old Sam's stuff, plus a xsample celesta.
Sadly I dont own VSL or other major libs, most of my works are done with "lite" libs. Also the clarinet glissando is the one included in AO.
I'm sure "kindergarten cop" sounds like me ...I have T Newman out of my window in Italy every day asking me for some music...
Hi Luca, really nice compositions! and I definitely think they carry your signature sound, as always, I think you are orchestrating better on each piece you write, and I specially love the colours in " a mask in the dark",... there's only at the end a slight problem with rythm in the percussion, at 1.02 or 1.03, but it's almost unnoticeable, I'm just telling if I may because I know how perfect you like music to be and I think this piece could suit into a demo cd very well
Great work, as usual, Luca.
Many yhanks Ivàn, Polar and Ned.
Ivan, well...you know...youre absolutely right...I honestly use to be very shabby on endings. I guess I got to take more care of them as of the other parts of the pieces.
Very nice! I enjoyed listening.
I like biggie_waltz most.
