Topic: After a few hours with Overture 4 . . .

    After a few hours with Overture 4 . . .

    Time for a short string suite! Nothing too special here, just my first product from fooling around with Overture 4 for just a few hours (I just got it yesterday, yay!). I must say, I love it! It's the best thing since sliced bread! It will definitely become a vital tool in my music making. I still can't wait to get my hands on K2 as well.

    Compositionally this piece is pretty simple . . . perhaps too simple . . . perhaps even weak! But it's nothing too serious, just getting a feel for the new and improved Overture. The score is also provided (made with Overture 4 and PrimoPDF, a free PDF converter program).

    Version 1
    MP3 : http://wizardwalk.com/music/StringSuite.mp3
    PDF : http://wizardwalk.com/music/StringSuite.pdf

    Version 2 (added Oct. 1 2005)
    MP3 : http://wizardwalk.com/music/StringSuiteV2.mp3
    PDF : http://wizardwalk.com/music/StringSuiteV2.pdf

    Enjoy!

    Sean is a genius? You're crazy.

    This is just great Sean. A few hours? That's just amazing really. Won't call you a genius, though, how about gifted individual? LOL

    Good work Sean.

    I hope your parents approved of their investment!

    Now - (and this is a joke ) - have you ever used any of the black notes on your keyboard?

    There's black notes? I thought those were just spaces between the keys. Man!

    Thumbs up Re: After a few hours with Overture 4 . . .

    Sean, to have fun without using black keys it's genial as using only black keys (...but it should be pentatonal )

    What a nice and expressive string music. Good investment yeah...

    Yes, he has obviously been playing catch-up on what he missed by being away so long.

    I am downloading your piece now. Takes close to infinity on my connection.

    Don't let them mess with you Sean!

    You also have D-dorian, E-phrygian, F-lydian, G-mixolydian, and (best of all) B-locrian to exhaust before moving on to the black notes. Those white notes were good enough for about 1200 years, so you're just carrying on a time-honored tradition. Maybe next year you can take up B-flat. ;-)

    Well, I just listened. Now I will look. Nothing wrong with music being simple. Sometimes that is truly difficult to achieve. I certainly hope you have made your parents listen to this so they can see that the money was well spent!

    This is just too cute to mention!!! You did a great job. I can simply see an 18th century nobleman entertaining his guests at a lavish banquet in his chateau.....

    Even Stravinsky, or was it Schoenberg, said that there's a lot left to be said in C major .....

    Isn't OVE4 just great......

    Kind Regards
