    "Harp To Harp Talk"

    Muzikvolkes,

    This is my "Harp To Harp Talk", two harps and a small group.

    It is my hope that you like it.

    Nice Piece Larry. I think that it could use some variation in the velocities though. It is a bit even and machanicle. I do like the writing. The use of the two harps would be very fun to play live.

    Thanks for posting it for us larry.

    Awesome Larry,
    I never think to write for a particular instrument like that. THis sounds like something in a film to me. Atleast that's what I walk away with. Very nicely written. I agree that it could be a bit more dynamic but then again, my stuff could be better in ways that yours already is. I love the GPO harp too. Do you use the glissando midi things or just do it on a keyboard? Just wondering. I've never used them but then again, I dont know anything about harp. Please keep it up.

    A "Harp To Harp Talk"? Groan. Oh, alright, alright, it's your piece, you get to title it, I guess... lol.

    Call it what you want, but this is some great-sounding harp writing, Larry.

    On the mix, I might suggest perhaps most of the other instruments need to be held back somewhat more. The harp's got a fair amount of power but is harmonically on the pure side and has not the explosive percussive envelope of a piano -- so, against, say, a full set of synth strings, its modest nature will render it too timid to cut through the texture...

    First. . . The title. . .

    Got to love Puns!!

    Now. . . The music. . .

    Another beautiful piece, Larry. Like your choice of instrumentation! Two harps just talking away. . . LOL!

    . . . but talking in a way that's very pleasant and interesting.

    There is one theme to this piece that I find particularly "haunting". It is difficult for me describe except that I want to hear it over and over again.

    As always, Larry. . . expert writing!

    Cheers!

    I must stop writing "haunting" music. It gives people nightmares.

    Thank you, Theodore for your support.

    I know little about the harp also, Eric, but I'm trying to educate myself.

    I don't use keyboard. My mouse is my friend.

    Thanks for listening and commenting.

    I especially like the feeling I get from listening to this piece, I can't describe it in words but I really like this one.
