    Oriental Lady

    Hi Everyone
    I know that it has been a long long very long time since I've been here...Just have not felt up to it....
    However, I do have a new but very short work that I thought you may like. It's called Oriental lady and it is for Harp. I use two different GPO Chromatic harps.
    Here is the link to my sound click site and then just choose Oriental Lady.
    I do hope you like it.

    Not a lick of sense!

    Good to see you back here with us, Cliff!

    I listened to Oriental Lady in the small hours last night;
    a good time to appreciate the spare and delicate
    outlines of the piece.

    Nice job on this, my friend. One doesn't generally think of
    the harp in this context; but the choice of a pair of them for
    this was good one.

    All my best,

    Thank you very much for listening to my work.
    I greatly appreciate having some one of your ability listen and then ge gracious enough to comment......

    I wanted to develop it more but the composition just would not lead me where it wanted to go!!! if that makes sense.....Once I start a work I try to let it direct me where to go ...I do not try to force it at all.....I know that this does need some more work but I think that this is the stopping point for now........I did want this work to have a lot of space in between sound.....kind of ositive space and negitive space.....for the most part I think I got it......but there are sections I would still like to see be reworked ......any way

    just my 2 cents......but thnak you kind sir!

    Hi Cliff,

    so good to see you back.

    This is delicate and lovely, like the cherry blossoms so prized by the Japanese (or my flowering crabapple trees, which have much the same effect in the late spring when their petals drop and dance on the wind).

    I have a friend who plays harp; if you would like to share it with her -- I am sure she would find it lovely-- would you send me the score in .pdf format if possible?

    Warm wishes to you Cliff,
    and once again, welcome back!


    ps. Have you ever seen "Memoirs of a Geisha"?

    This does indeed sound very oriental in nature and the Hraps were a good choice for the instrumentation.

    Well done

    Cliff - a very delicate and beautiful work. Sorry to hear you have not been up to playing lately. I also go through these stages but I always (as you) get back where I (you) belong. Expression through music is a fickle and delicate thing.
