    New Orchestra work

    Hi guys,

    It has been a very long time since I posted here. I closed the e-mail account for this chat page, and the admin. never replied about my password to me so I had to get another account.

    But anyway I have written another orchestral piece and I would love to hear your imput. Thanks

    Hey Matthew, I liked this..... the woodwinds are especially well handled (strings seem a bit far away -- any way to bring them up in the mix?). Nice handling of some unconventional harmonies!

    Welcome back, Matthew!

    Some fine epical writing in this;and a thoughtful
    and insightful treatment of the complex strands of
    deeply intriguing philosophical considerations. The
    consistently dark coloration and tone leads one to
    ponder the possiblity of not merely death toward
    some latter transfiguration, but outright destruction
    of the spirit...

    Outstanding drive in the ending segment... I assume
    the brief tail notes will lead us on to a further
    movement on rebirth.

    My best,

    Matthew,

    Not being a scholar of fine music means I can't comment on the structure of your writing so my observations are solely on the recording of this piece. I found it difficult in places to determine which instrument or section was playing which note in the chord. I use this sometimes as a technique when arranging others recordings to hide the fact I'm not sure what the notes should be but that can't be your reason as you decided the score. I'd like to hear a little more clarity in the mixing and recording stage of your production.

    Kind regards

    Hi Ray and Steve,

    Yes there are problems in the mix. I'm hoping at some point to dump the whole thing into Sonar, and try to get a better balance. Right now I'm just so busy....

    And David, you better believe that ending leads to something else!!! The "rebirth" act ideally. (Which will probably be much harder to write).

    And thanks to everyone who has listenend and will listen to my piece.

    Matthew,

    Welcome back - and what a way to return! This is a very strong piece, full of drive and life (even though it's about dying...) Motivically very strong as the recurrent idea nearly saturates many passages - definitely lends support to the inexorable direction this piece exhibits. Looking forward to part 2.
