I've been starting to write again and thanks to the emergence of GPO can hear what I've written and make it available to others.
This piece is about 5 minutes in length and is entirely GPO. It was composed in Final 2007 and all of the "tweaking" is thanks to Fianle's Human Playback.
I'm not at all skilled in mixing or tweaking GPO yet and so this is posted just as played by Finale.
The intrumentation is flute, oboe, english horn,Bb clarinet,bassoon, 3 horns, 2 tpts, 2trb, tuba, celesta, timpani, percussion and strings.
Thanks for listening. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
Some very interesting moments in this, David; I enjoyed
In Finale, I would suggest bringing up the levels (this was
quite low for the most part) in the Mixer; and also perhaps more
work with the notation of dynamics. To my ear, this seems
a bit dry, as well, so perhaps some experimentation with the
settings in Finale's Ambience would be in order. Also with
the Mixer, you might work a bit more toward balance among
the individual instruments.
Your thoughts mean a lot. Thanks for listening. In retrospect I trhink this was a little long and needs rewriting in that sense. For some reason I could not seem to get the mix up high enough, but this was the first time I had used Finale with GPO and hopefully that won't be a problem in the future.
For me, striking a blend between too wet wnd too dry has been an issue so I will go to school on these comments.
