    Mystery Man and the Gigantic Flying Miniature Decorative Gong

    Yes, I know, it is a somewhat silly name. Also, I couldn't get a better site to upload it than zshare since it is kinda big. It's a 7-Movement Suite. Please tell me what you think.

    http://www.zshare.net/audio/57869513f11bf2/

    00:00 - Movement 1: Origin of the Gong.
    2:51 - Movement 2: Forging of Mystery Man
    4:14 - Movement 3: Il Gran Rifiuto
    6:40 - Movement 4: Destiny
    8:52 - Movement 5: Victory of Mystery Man
    9:50 - Movement 6: lolnotdead
    13:50 - Movement 7: Finale

    Here are the movements without popup attacks:
    Movement 1: http://www.box.net/shared/t1em513448
    Movement 2: http://www.box.net/shared/7y7wz8hesk
    Movement 3: http://www.box.net/shared/boab3q348k
    Movement 4: http://www.box.net/shared/v7hd06igwg
    Movement 5: http://www.box.net/shared/velp80vkss
    Movement 6: http://www.box.net/shared/1bhlg2askg
    Movement 7: http://www.box.net/shared/yoq4n4nsc0

    Also, I told my friend that he could contribute to this suite, so here it is:

    So tell me, how can you look at a title like that and not listen to it? Anything with more than 2 adjectives has to be good, right?....right? Well, your song is proof of this assumption. I really loved it, and congrats on completing such a massive work! It's a great feeling!

    First off, welcome to the forum. I read in another post that you are in 8th grade. This is fantastic for your age. I am surprised that an 8th grader would take the time to compose something like this. Very well done. Are you studying music somewhere? You seem to have a natural knack for this either way.

    The first time I tried to listen to this, the site you used tried all kinds of funny things with my computer. I had to close down IE and come back in a different window. I figured I had better stay away, but curiousity got the best of me.

    Might I suggest, breaking this down into the movements and using a different site such as boxnet. I think if others have the same experience that I had, they might not try again.

    Well done

    Congratulations on completing an intriguing and epic saga. Please give notes to what the title and movements all mean - curiosity is killing this cat.

    My favorite movement was Destiny, although I accidentally thought it started at 5:30. I liked the harmonic writing then.

    Another favorite part was the ending to lolnotdead.

    The Irish/Celtic pieces were also nice (although the flute was prominent for too long).

    Cheers,

    A warm welcome to the forum, Cransworth.

    My cat died just reading the title (and I don't
    even have a cat). Do fill us in a little on the
    background for the piece.

    Quite an interesting collection, dramatic and
    intriguing, with a strong sense of narrative through
    much of it. One has the impression of being
    presented with the substrate of a very visual
    experience, yet with the music supplanting the
    need of the images!

    My best,

    Rolifer -
    I'll do that some time soon when I get the chance. Oh, and I'm in 9th grade now. I'm in a music theory class in my school, but it is still in really basic stuff that I already know. So really, I'm just kinda going on talent alone...along with that music theory knowledge I've gained.

    YBaCuO -
    Movement 1: Origin of the Gong - The creation of the gong. It was a happy, fun creation used for many celebrations and stuff, but then it became evil...I guess.
    Movement 2: Forging of Mystery Man - Mystery Man was made to destroy the gong.
    Movement 3: Il Gran Rifiuto - The gong starts terrorizing people and such, and then Mystery Man comes to beat him.
    Movement 4: Destiny - The end of the battle between the two.
    Movement 5: Victory of Mystery Man - Self-explanatory.
    Movement 6: lolnotdead - Oh no! The gong isn't actually dead! Then, as every lame generic story must do, it goes into the gong's sad past and whatnot.
    Movement 7: Finale - It's kinda sad and all because he has to kill the gong for everything to go back to normal (I guess the gong casted some spells or something? I dunno....). This movement was really Grainger- and Holst-influenced (First part of it was Grainger, second was Holst).

    I don't have the time to sit down and give it my full attention but it all sounds well done. You have good musical ideas and ability to communicate them.

    Is everyone in your class doing work like this?

    9th grade, huh. You're over the hill kid.

    No, I don't go to a school in insane-crazy composers. It's just me.
    Well, there is one other girl who's pretty good at composing, too. She not really as good as me yet (though she would probably she other wise). She knows more about theory than me, since she is in Music Theory II, and I just started in Music Theory I.

    Hi, Cransworth

    Welcome to the Forum!---But I'm afraid "Zshare" freaked me out too much to hear your piece. Pop-ups prevented me getting to the link for quite a while - My pop-up blocker was struggling, couldn't catch some of them--I had to shut down to get rid of the last one.. ARGH! - And the player didn't work when I tried valiently to get back on--I will have to download, which is OK, but more POP-UPS kept blocking my attempt to do that.

    In other words---as Ron suggested, simply upload it to Box where there's no hanky-panky played with visitors' computers. And you'll have more success with people hearing everything if you would post it in movements.

    I hope I get to hear this at some point.
