Alright, here's another percussion ensemble. This is different from anything I've posted for 2 reasons, 1. I tried experimenting with a new style, and b. this is the first song I've written for Finale 2008, thusly the first song I intended for GPO. The only non-GPO instrument is the Vibraphone.
So, this one is called Dreamscapes, I wanted to think of something else to represent the frequent changes in sections, but that was the only thing that came to mind that fit the mysterious (at least I hope you think it sounds that way) sections of this piece.
Yes, I know I've only posted percussion stuffs...I hope to do something more along the lines of orchestra soon, but I felt I needed to finish a song on F-2008 before I exploded, so this is it.
You crack me up - REeeeally inspiring (not) to click on something that the creator is calling "lame" in some way. Chuckles. I understand you don't like the title, but self effacement in a subject line won't necessarily attract the most listeners.
BOOM!--This thing cooks. You do great work with percussion. Realy short but Sweeeet.
Why didn't you use the GPO Vibraphone? It's a great instrument.
Some of the sudden volume swoops are sounding unnatural, volume slider over-kill I think. But the recording is otherwise doing justice to your work.
Hey - You could add this to the Halloween music contest going on in General Discussion!
Hi Michael, I enjoyed your “Dreamscapes”. Each rapidly changing section seems to grow out of the previous one. I’m not sure of a better title than what you gave it, but it reminds me of an after hours romp through a haunted fun house.
I realize this was short, but I didn't want it to be repetitive, which I was very well on the verge of doing.
Rbowser: as far as GPO vibraphone, I would have loved to use it...but I don't think finale 08 comes with a full version of GPO, so I am GPO vibraphoneless...
englishgent: perhaps... Dream of the Clown-o-phobe?
lesotho72: flute? hmm....perhaps. I'm working on an orchestral piece right now...I've gotten really far into it...about 6 measures! I plan on having a part with prominent marimba in it somewhere...perhaps I could use it as an accompaniment to a flute solo...thanks for the suggestion!
REALLY COOL! Yeah, maybe it wasn't long... but for real, I did envision a "Dreamscape" setting. I don't know call me crazy, but it sounded a little Danny Elfman-on-mallets to me at times. I think it's neato man. Interesting indeed.!
