    Sketch #2: Afterthought

    This is a short (3 minutes) piece I've been working on for the past month. I just can't write as quickly as some of you and I envy your productivity. I would appreciate any comments from those of you who have time to give it a listen.

    It is all done with GPO and Finale.

    Thanks for listening. Let me know what you think.

    A very engaging work, David!

    There's a distinct dialogue interplay here...filled with a variety of moods.
    I really enjoyed the subtlety of voicing..

    And If by " not writing as quickly as others" yields this result, then by all means, take your time.
    This is a great composition!


    ...After all, it's far better to have 1 or 2 outstanding works, than dozens of mediocre ones.

    Well, done

    Jeff:

    Thanks so much for your comments. I am trying to get back into composing after a long hiatus as a psychiatrist and your supportive comments were indeed appreciated.

    David, the sense of conversation in this is what
    struck me most, with its pauses and recursions
    and reconsiderations... very effective.

    Excellent work, with plenty of unexpected but
    cogently forwarded turns and twists.

    As for productivity, I'm sure I can out-slow you
    any day... rofl. Seriously, to me? I'd much
    rather spend a whole year writing three minutes
    of music that survives the next fifty years than
    writing hours of it that dies on the vine.

    Stick with quality, my friend... forget about the
    quantity, as it's irrelevant.

    My best,

    David

    David:

    Thanks for the comments. I just found them today. They seem to have been lost in all of the Dec 24th posting.
