This is my first post in the GPO listening room, so be easy on me. A little background info first. My name is Michael Stephen Miller. I am currently 18 years old, and have been writing music since a little before the year 2000. I have also been playing the piano since I was four. This little piece of music is one I wrote a few months ago. A few months before I wrote this piece I had some termoil between me and a friend. The details are very involved and I won't go into them here. Durring the third week of the summer, we managed to work things out. I wrote Jubilo and Dance a few days later. It is a celebratory piece. Anyway tell me what you think.
Thanks for your input and sorry I couldn't respond sooner. I am planning on rerecording the piece after cleaning up some of the balance issues. A lot of the ballance issues are due to the fact that I wrote that piece origonally using soundfonts. As you may or may not know, soundfonts use velocity based dynamics. As you can imagine, migrating a velocity based midi sequence to a sample library like GPO is NOT easy. The worst part is, some of my pieces reach lengths of well over 20 minutes. My longest piece is over a half hour long. That one is going to be a real project. But anyway, I will post another message to this thread when I get the final recording done.
I can really sense the excitement in the song, much like some of Stephen Schwartz's stuff. I can totally relate with the transition from soundfonts to GPO, but I think that the piece itself has an amazing dynamic potential.
