    'Score in F minor'

    Hi,
    Here is file that I (maybe) finished last week.
    'SCORE IN F MINOR'

    http://www.glamator.com

    I've bought additional RAM that gave me new possibilities to explore GPO.
    Description of file:
    Basic sequence and variations, martele bowing.
    All instruments are GPO.

    Thank you for listening.

    Hi, Glamator--I'm glad to see you posting something here again.

    Your stated intent, from your website, "...computer controlled melodious music with classical instruments.." is certainly born out with your new piece, "Score in F minor." It's very lovely, the soulful legato melody riding on top of the more urgent, minimalist Cello rhythm.

    I think a re-phrasing of your intent should be considered--Your music, while realized on a computer, could well be played by live string players. It's not only music for a computer.

    Thank you.

    The concept in this piece is very useful as a backdrop to film or TV screen movement.
    I wonder what DAW you use or is this from a notation programme.
    A little reverb would be nice.

    Thanks

    Hey, this song was fun to listen to. It reminds me of the kind of thing I normally hear at the other site I frequent (ctgmusic.com) where electronic music and minimalism predominate. The sound is very dry and artificial, but it looks like you were going for that on purpose and I do think that the music suits the sound very well, so I'd consider that a success.

    There is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Therefore there must be a God. You either get this one or you don't - Kreeft & Tacelli
    The will to achieve is not sufficient. Some things should not be achieved. - Rimsky-Korsakov
    Musicians are just these guys that want to make music. Okay, they want to have a wonderful lifestyle, but the majority just want to make really great music. - Jon Anderson

    I liked this! Very clean writing, with some able
    harmonic work in it.

    I could definitely hear this as supporting music
    in film work -- and perhaps as an independent piece,
    as well, if it were developed more.

    Music does not need to be complex or busy to
    be beautiful; but a couple of areas in this I might
    suggest more attention...

    Perhaps bring the solo lines up a little. And by
    all means, more work with tempi and dynamics.
    This writing is inherently quietly dramatic, and
    I think the strength and impact of it would
    benefit.

    For the record, I've listened through this about
    a half dozen times. To me, it's really quite
    engaging!

    My best,

    I really liked this! The repeated rhythmic theme on the strings worked well for me. I actually liked the dry "up close" sound this has. I agree with David, bringing the solo lines up a touch in some places would add a lot to this piece.

    I look forward to hearing more from you.

    Cheers,
    Kenny

    I prefer live strings players more than computer.There are prejudice that computer music can't be melodious and realistic and that was reason why I wrote that sentence. Computer is practical. You can easily check your ideas.
    Thank you for post.

    Cubase SX, Wavelab, Emu 1820m sound card, Emu Xboard 61.
    What is right amount of reverb is difficult decision and some kind of compromise because I wanted aggressive bowing. Next version will be with more reverb.
    Thank you.

    Thank you for post. I've tried to imitate martele bowing. That was reason why is sound dry. Other instruments need more reverb.
