Ray--Great entertainment, this. I Gotta play it for my fiance later today/night--It will be a good background to the beginning of a romantic evening I am sure.
"...Is there more? yes if commissioned..."
hehe--Nice work if you can get it. As someone who never makes money from writing music, I wish you the best on that.
I love to be surprised, and you keep surprising me, Ray--I never know what to expect from you, and am always impressed.
Randy, as usual I jest,
A hobby this is and a hobby it will stay.
I find it difficult doing anymore than demo length pieces as, what is the point in the finished article unless its for MONEY MONEY MONEY.
I've always been this way. merscenary.
Charity begins at home.
Nice writing but the interpretation sounds a little astmathic (sp?) to me. Would benefit a lot if the interpretation would have bigger musical bows.
Hannes thanks for listening,
Excuse me while I use my puffer to be less astmathic.
I don't understand your point about the benifit of bigger bows, perhaps you could say in a different way that I might understand you.
I started this piece with no tune. I tried to develope a tune as I worked on it but with no great success. As usual I try to create the sound of an era using Garritan Libraries just for fun. I don't have the inclination to spend enough time to really do any genre justice. I'm too busy having FUN FUN FUN!
what I mean is that you have put a nearly equal accent on *every* one of the melody.
I would try variations of that - give different accents that build up and go away again. With that you could help the phrase, and this would add a lot to your very well-written piece.
Hopefully I commented more clearly this time, if not then please write again.
Thanks, now I understand your meaning.
Yes you are right, I have not spent enough time on each part as a solo instrument, where they would stand on their own. If I did that then I could put your advice into practice. Your observations are much appreciated.
On the mark with the atmosphere in this, Ray -- it's
perfect. About the only thing I'd change is maybe
add a few sour notes in the piano -- they were never
all that well tuned... lol.
Seriously, given the stylistic range you've got (and
your [joking, I know] comment about being rather
avaricious when it comes to music) -- you probably
ought to be doing a little shopping around out toward...
what do they call that place, I always forget -- you
know, where they make the movies and all that?
