    The Sinister Cloche

    I already posted a portion of this compositiono while I was still in the middle of writing it, but now that I completed this, here it is again, The Sinister Cloche. This is part of a series of works I have been writing.

    nice one. I liked the two-part structure, first creating tension with soundscapes and after that the uptempo carefree part. cool.

    Yes Mike, you can't beat a good tune

    Ok!! you've tidied up this effort, onwards and upwards. By the way I know already to turn the volume down on my system before listening to your work, hope everybody else does. Used to compressed CD levels instead of your DVD dynamics.

    Keep it up!!!!!!!

    Hehehe... I really liked the use of the C-B-C-A-B-G-A-A theme. Familiar...

    Your overall orchestration is very nice: delicate with little movement at time, then swelling into a symphonic blast of power. The delicacy thing I am still working on--I can't seemt to write small with such little movement. Bravo!

    LOL Yes. I am glad you liked it.

    I actually sort of barrowed that theme. But, based on the fact that three different composers (Liszt, Berlioz, and Schubert) have used it in their own works, I figured it would be alright.

    Hehehe... don't get me wrong, I wasn't criticizing. Something my composition instructor once told me was:

    "Coming up with something original nowadays is difficult. Most everything original has already been done. Therefore, it's okay to plagiarize if you know the source...only fools borrow without being able to give credit where it is due."
    And you know what? The more I listen to music, the more I find similarities. It's the ability to recombine and arrange the themes that is today's art.

    Mike,

    Really great writing and the incorporation of the Day of Rath fragment. Ya can't argue with a good idea. Nice orchestration and coloring throughout.

    Mike,
    Very nice writing. As I was listening, it seemed like I was
    listening to John Williams and Eric Coates came in, and then
    Williams returned. Two great, but different cocmposers.
    It's a feeling I have about comparison of music styles.
    I am amazed at the crescendo in timp & winds. Was this
    a program like Finale, or created with another method?

    Ps. John Williams is sort of a mentor allong with Aaron Copland.
