    Cool FINGAL'S CAVE - Midnight serenade of the cave bats

    Hi everybody,

    This is sort of a continuation of my previous "Romantic Dream Theme", from where I took some elements that resulted in this piece.

    "FINGAL'S CAVE" or UAMH-BINN in Gaelic.

    2 - *Midnight serenade of the cave bats* - new


    Welcome to visit this misterious Scottish cave.


    enjoy!

    I did enjoy you UAMH-BINN. It's symphonic but also pretty cinematic. It almost asks for some visuals.

    You're getting a good sound here. I did notice that it seems to sort of get cut off at the end.

    Hi again, Phil! Glad to see you back in the GPO arena
    Look forward hearing your next piece.

    Back to "Uamh-binn"! The end is now smooth.

    Glad you enjoyed my frantic cave music.
    I was exhausted after this, I promise. Wanted to grab some of those strange moods...lol!

    Such an entertaining frantic escape from a monstrous yet looney forbiddon cave!!

    You like that bass trombone?

    The rapid piano was a brave change; also enjoyed the lonely timpani area; "could hear an echo?".

    Great work Fred!

    Hi Michael,

    Traveling to Scotland in my mind was an interesting experience that resulted in this Cave idea...lol!

    Yes! I love bass trombone, especially the fat piercing higher tones!

    I don't exactly remember how I got the "Fingal's Cave" idea, but I think it was the chromatic piano parts that triggered it.

    Lonely timpani can create interesting moods. And yes! Added a few echo effects to the orchestra.

    Thanks for having written such an inspiring review, Michael!

    Gosh, I think I've got this all out of order, having gone
    to the first part second and the second part first (as
    far as Fingal's, that is) -- but it was well worth a
    second visit to the Cave, my friend... especially with
    that frenetic battiness.

    The isolate timpani is a powerful mood setting device
    in the right contexts -- and like you, I love getting
    down in the bottom, growly, blatting range of that
    bass trombone!

    My best,



    David

    Cool Re: Uamh-binn

    Glad you enjoyed your visit in the cave, David!

    I was in a special mood that day when I composed! I remember my wife's heartbeat increased considerably when she heard this music, lol!
