Topic: Assert Ot Evol

Share/Bookmark
  1. #1

    Assert Evil

    I've been working on this one for 2 weeks. You've commented, and given suggestions. I implemented some, and politely ignored (but appreciated) others.
    Here it is again, after another long long day of composing. I'm worn out again. But my energy will replenish after a good nights sleep and I'll be ready to start again. I hope you enjoy.

    My main focus was the beginning few minutes, the back half of the piece hasn't been tampered with too much. Thats tomorrow effort.

    Thanks for the comment. Both good and bad are always welcome. I perfer honesty to sugar coating. I guess its all those relationships I've been in that makes me feel that way.

    PS. I am also aware for those who are sticklers, that in the Mahler-esque section in the middle, I used a GM Snare (oops) instead of the Basic OrchPerc Snare. Yes. I am sorry about that, later versions will haveit corrected.

    Love to Tressa, Tuba Jedi Master?

    The transition is fine. Very beautiful writing here. To my ears, the string entrances are a little too forceful. A more "caressing" approach would be nice. The snare drum ostinato would benefit from a little bit of propulsion, just a slight accent on each group of four sixteenth notes to help localize the rhythm in the overall texture. Nice work!

    Kudos to Darwin. I figured it wouldn't be too hard to figure out.

    Thanks for the tip about the strings. I'll keep that in mind as I conitnue my musical explorations. I appreciate the comment!

    Hi Tuba, I liked the transitions. Maybe a little rough going into the faster section, but that section was my favorite, so I can forgive it being slightly out of the blue.

    Great work

    Hi, Tuba - Great to see you back in The Listening Room with more music.

    Nice! - Transition pretty much works for me- Turning "on a dime" can often work well. Perhaps with a percussive layer to make it even more jarring and definitive.

    That last section is certainly anxious - I'm left wondering where you will go next.

    Hopefully, we'll soon enough hear where you go.

    Thanks!

    Not bad for a tuba player. (just joking). I very nice piece. It did not seem to end with a strong resolution to me. It stopped, and I expected more to happen. A very nice job.

    Its not finished. Its still undergoing composing. I pretty much already know where I'm going with it, but it'll be several weeks or months before I finish.

    Benjanim,

    I think that you are off to a really good start with this work. There is a lot of very interesting ideas here and the implementation works well. Hope to hear more of it soon.

    I enjoyed what you have finished.

    As a performance piece it sounds like it would go over well with an audience.

    It really keeps your interest and has a nice pop(as in The Boston Pops) feel to it.

    I hate to sound noobish, but what sort of percussion did your minds eye hear there Bowser?
