Was wondering if you could help me with this. Usually I post here just because I wonder what people think of the music. But this time, I really am after a bunch of feedback if you have the time.
To give some background to the piece here is something I wrote about it on my blog
"(the music I prefer to write) uses some techniques and instruments from classical music, and combines them with electronic music making and a pop sensibility. I call it classical fusion."
You can read the background at my blog where there is an excerpt of the music:link
or download the full piece here: link to old music
edit! updating the piece, new mix is here: link to new music
In this piece I combine GPO instruments with drum machine and samples of metal, clay and glass. I certainly use a pop sensibility but try to retain the polyphony of classical music. In any case was seeking feedback on a few things. My impressions are:
- I could use a lot less density in the music at first? building up the polyphony more gradually. The development in this piece is all about the polyphony, not so much the melody or themes.
- Are the strings mixed too high?
- I spent ages mastering, there were so many instruments I wanted them all to be heard clearly. However, maybe somethings really should go in the background more. Also, I think maybe I compressed too much?
ta in advance
