    Introductory Greeting

    Hello, Everyone!

    My name is Sean Damon. I am a composer, guitarist, and very happy owner of GPO and J&BB.

    Let me say on the outset that I fully agree with the overwhelming consensus of this forum. Sample technology has truly liberated the composer from reliance on the performer; especially those of us without the necessary connections to facilitate actual performances of compositions that, without such technology, would remain dormant on dusty bookshelves. Just as Mendelssohn’s family provided him with his own little orchestra for which to compose his wonderful works, developers and providers of this revolutionary technology, such as Gary Garritan, are providing all of us with virtual musicians through which we can finally communicate our music directly to the world—Hallelujah! While many people speak of creating “mock-ups” for use in their efforts to achieve actual performances of their works, I believe given a good high quality sample library as well as a high degree of proficiency in the art of sequencing, one should look at the very real possibility of selling performances of work straight from one’s studio; forget the performer altogether. Don’t get me wrong. It is true, of course, that no virtual reproduction will ever match the quality of a performance of a well rehearsed piece by an ensemble of fine musical artists, but I, for one, revel in the fact that we now have this new and extremely powerful tool for use in our efforts to contribute beautiful works to the world. Obscurity no more!

    Sean

    P.S. I have been listening to your contributions to the community for a couple of years now and I want you all to know that I am thrilled by the fine new music I have heard. May you enjoy great success through your efforts.
