Topic: Witchwood

    Sean said this is my best work ever.... you be the judge..

    Most of it is GPO, like strings, and pizz, and aggressive bows, as well as ALL the woods.

    Gosh, Sam, haven't seen you in a bit -- welcome home!

    Really nice writing in this; I've had it looping for a while,
    listening with interest. Very astute, ingenious use of
    orchestration, and I like that subtle and unobtrusive
    introduction of male voices.

    Now. The crucial question is: Is there more?

    I want more, Sam, I want more...

    Great job on this!

    Very nice work indeed!

    Terrific mood and setting.

    The title is fitting for this arrangement. Definitely evocative of forests and witchery!

    great work!

    ...love to hear more

    Yes, forests and witches. Very well done. It has an almost Mahler like quality.

    Good stuff! It has a certain Edward Scissorhands feel to it... light and mischievious. I enjoyed it.

    My only suggestion would be to back off just a bit on the reverb. It seemed to be a bit heavy and perhaps obscurring some of the finer detail.

    Thumbs up Re: Witchwood

    Nice work Fire! Has some "Elfin Magic" to it. You been studying with Danny Elfin?
    The orchestration superbly illustrates the title. Not enough praise for such and awesome composition.

    Great name and great music too. The winds were quite special.
