    Time Hero

    Hello people... it's been a while I haven't been here. For the people who don't know me (I think everybody... haha), I'm just a rookie in this fantastic composing world. I wanted to share a piece I've been working on, it has still missing features I'd like you to help me with. It is called "Time Hero", and I tried to make a cinematic background of the theme, about a hero who can travel on time, the past, present and future. I hope you like it and I'll wait for your comments.

    Very beautiful, introspective, and "thought provoking". Enjoyed the "clock" or "ticking" reference/play. Most of the time, cinematic music is "bipolar" in personality within 5 minutes of beginning. When it has "the blues" it very depressed; when it is "happy", it is noticeably ecstatic. I would make the crescendos in your piece more "grand" to contrast with the "hypnotic flow" whole or tone of your work.

    Hope this helps ...

    Thanks Michael, your comment is very important, because for me it's been a long journey in spite of I'm just a beginner. I'll consider this and thank you for your time.

    Great job! The textures sound great, very realistic and convincing.

    I would agree with the earlier comments regarding the need for greater use of dynamics. For instance, the cymbals at 1:46 sound a little odd to my ear, placed as they are in a fairly quiet passage. Being part of a crescendo would bring them to life.

    I'm impressed with your work.
    Regards

    Thanks for the advice Owen, there's a lot of things I have to learn, not just about composing, but also the notation software I'm using. I'm going one step at a time, and this comments are helping me a lot!

    Thanks again (y si, si soy costarricense!).

    Re: Time Hero

    Good to see you back with us, Andino! And you know,
    the best way to surmount "rookie" status is to come
    and bring us more material, more often... lol!

    There's much fine work in this, though I do hear you
    struggling a bit with the resources -- the use of
    dynamics, phrasing, articulation, tempi [the notorious
    Four Horsemen of Performance]. Yet, not to worry,
    time and practice!

    Much of the writing in this, with its tenderness and
    occasionally Coplandesque introspective reflection,
    was much enjoyed. Do bring us more!

    My best,

    Andino:

    I think you are off to a great start here.

    The woodwinds sound very nice and the
    overall piece has a good blueprint. I think,
    with the constructive criticisms you have
    already received, your creative effort will
    blossom beyond your original belief.
