    Wink Pee Ree Odd Drama (entirely GPO)

    Another DEMO toying with the wonderful GPO.
    This is my best composition to date posted here in the listening room.
    I say this because following listening to music and learning from studied musicians on this forum I now really start to hear and write counter melody instead of just pad sounds to fill spaces. Thank you all.

    The GPO instruments used as follows:

    Bb Clarinet
    Steinway piano lite
    Bassoon 1 solo oboe
    Oboe 1 modern solo
    Violin 1 solo (changed from Violin 2 solo) 20th May
    Cello 2 solo KS

    seating positions: - violin - bassoon - piano - clarinet - cello - oboe -

    I hope you enjoy it. (this is a work in progress only in making minor changes to the mix)

    Ray,

    a very nice composition and arrangement!

    Perhaps you can record it once somewhat more carried, with easy speed changes, whereby the rhythm goes then to something into the background?

    I think this would more or better put out the feelings...

    Best,

    Thanks for the observations Gunther,

    Yes, years of creating strict time for dancing is hard to break. I have already re-done with varied tempo.

    Oh, great!!!

    You know, Ray, I have composed and arranged "deutsche Schlager" for years, and that was nearly the same you did

    Ray -

    I like this. I would ask, though, if you could do a bit more pan for some of the countermelodies (just to make it easier on my tired ears). Those themes are delightful, and my neck hurts from turning my head to hear them better.

    It is nicely done. Your instrumental choices feel and sound right.

    By the way, what pee ree odd is it from?

    That was really odd but enjoyably odd.

    I tried to get a visual with it but come up with a weird dream.

    This is the most "classical" piece of yours I've heard.

    Joe,

    Following your comments I have re-mixed, spreading the bassoon and oboe left and right and eq'd all instruments to try to get more separation. I'm not Dan Kury but I've tried to take some of his tips on board. Also 128 kbps on Soundclick isn't the best but it's handy.

    The instrument choice was down to, starting with clarinet and piano, then adding the rest. As I've said before, I can't score or notate music so I just build by ear.

    My Best

    I didn't hear this piece before your remixed it. It sounds good to my modest ears now, though! I like the placement of the instruments.

    I appreciate the work you put into it as you develop your compositional skills. I learn a lot from listening to the more "seasoned" composers as well. (There's a of wealth of talent to be found here!) Your listening, learning and work paid off! This is a nice piece; a very well written composition! Well written. Well rendered. Nice job!

    This a truly captivating piece of music. There's so much going on, that one certainly has to listen several times to appreciate it all. I enjoyed this a lot. Your choice of instruments is also very interesting. Thank you.
    Kind Regards

    Ted I'm glad you enjoyed this piece because I'm certainly pleased with it.
    Three months ago I would not have got anywhere near this composition and recording level. I really am having so much fun.

    My Best
