    "After Dusk"

    "After Dusk"
    Several years ago a student asked me to write a short piece for her to play on a recital. She wanted "jazz" harmonies but not a jazz piece as she was strictly a "flautist." It was originally for Flute and Piano but I decided to expand it with all of this new found technology that I possess. Now I think it could be used as a Soap Opera theme. This is only Finale and GPO as I still haven't solved the sequencer mystery.

    Yeah, that flute really sticks out, Steve. Really nice changes
    and very excellent backing for the solo instruments.

    Really great chart, Steve.

    Steve,

    Very enjoyable and soothing piece. It has a Debussy/Ravel feel.

    Thanks for posting,

    I wish I could help with the sequencer mystery. I know how frustrating it can be, but once you get it to work, I think you will be very happy with it.

    This is just beautiful writing, 18 handicap? yeah right. I may be a scratch golfer, but you are consistently hitting birdies and eagles!!

    One of my favorite instruments in GPO/JABB is this flute. What a gorgeous sound it delivers. If you still have the Piano and Flute version, I am sure many of us would love to hear it as well. I know I would.


    You could call your new soap opera $o$. It has money and a cry for help, what network could refuse?

    Very well done

    I don’t hear a soap opera as much as incidental music from the late 50s or early 60s. Let me close my eyes and picture it: A romantic scene in a drama based in Paris. Leslie Caron is walking through the City of Lights thinking of the man she loves, remembering the tender moments, etc., etc….

    Lovely tune – I really like it.

    Jack & Bill:

    Thank you for appreciative remarks. I think my "old" piece is going to be played here by a 16 year old "flautist." What do they mean, generation gap?

    Ron:
    Danny Williams has been busting his rear helping me and has come up with an idea that might work. My Metro sequencer is not very well known so Danny is going to send me a Cubebase that he is familiar with. There is light at the end of the tunnel (or as in my case, the funnel.) I'm certainly curious to hear the differences once I get it cranking.
    I'll have to revise the piano part because I did a lot of "editing and amending" when I was orchestrating, but since I am retired, what else is there to do? Thanks for your interest.

    We think alike and envision many of the same things, but I must confess I was thinking more of Ava Gardner in Seattle (I like cool, rainy weather.)
    Thank you for your kind words. It is always very gratifying to be appreciated by ones peers.

    Steve,

    what a nice piece!

    And yes, I love this great sound out of your orchestrating!

    Please allow me one suggestion: For me, the flute is mixed here and there a little, but only a little bit too loud...

    My best,
