Topic: "Alptraum"

    "Albtraum"

    All of Y'all,

    I had an hour or so this morning, so I wrote "Albtraum".

    Albtraum is German for nightmare. (These are not sounds that I normally write.)

    All of the instruments are GPO.

    Larry, it must be tough slowing down like that; having
    to spend a whole hour on a piece.

    Seriously, this is fine work, harmonically inviting,
    adventurous -- and damned effective.

    I'd strongly encourage you to consider expanding this.
    This has the strength and underpinnings for a much
    larger scope.

    My best,

    Mr. Dave,

    You actually like this...for real? Are you OK? Any fever or stuff like that?

    I'm kidding...I'm kidding. Thanks for your nice comments concerning this questionable effort.

    I am worried. I can turn out comps like this all day long but what do I have at the end of the day? I dunno. I dunno. Probably not very much.

    My best to you and Miz Sosnowski.

    Yes, seriously, Larry, I do -- and quite a great deal.

    I've often said you're at your best when you go out
    on a limb, and somebody comes along with a saw on
    the other end.

    I'll give the Missus your regards, soon as she stops
    all that cavorting.

    Re: "Alptraum"

    I will listen to this piece later, but I would like to add a little funy fact: Recently Germany and Austria changd the grammar and spelling rules of the German language. Quite a revolution it was...

    The new spelling is supposed to be "Albtraum".

    Thanks for the information. I am unable to make a correction because we can't edit the main titles on this forum's listing.

    Larry,

    yes this piece is effective. I am shivering.

    Really, it has some depth in it and makes listen.

    But I can also relate to your comment. I personally find it much more difficult for me to write something with a positive effect than with drama. Therefore I mostly try the first one

    Keep on you good work!

    Larry, I wouldn't name this "Alptraum" or nightmare. It has serious depth in it, which came from life and not from fantasy.

    I like this

    I appreciate your comments, but this is not the type of thing that I normally write. I am a "tonal" person.
