    Wink The stars of the milky way

    Hi everybody in the big wide world! Welcome to

    1. "THE STARS OF THE MILKY WAY" - INTRODUCTION

    Time - 2:36


    2. "THE STARS OF THE MILKY WAY" - original mix with less reverb

    Time - 3:12


    also welcome to listen to David Lynch talking about the Milky Way.
    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


    Also watch the trailer of my documentary movie "MAN OF THE RIVER", which I made 2005 - dvd cover - (sound 5.1)

    It's about one of Sweden's most known contemporary composers, RALPH LUNDSTEN. - CD's

    I and my wife went to the north of Sweden together with him to search into his past, interviewing him about his childhood. Here is a short trailer of the dvd that can be purchased. (60 minutes long.)

    I'm the guy sitting in a yellow Lacoste shirt, interviewing Ralph!

    The DVD that I'm selling, made in 2005, has English subtitles and my voice-over in the beginning!
    (I have added subtitles on youtube now! )

    Especially interesting is his outdoor ballet "Enchanted", which I have included some sequences of in my trailer.

    He has just recieved a medal from the Swedish government, being in business for more than 50 years!

    He just had his 73rd birthday! He calls himself a living fossil!

    A very daunting piece. I like how you managed the instruments and the motives. This is a very listenable work. Thanks for sharing.

    Fred:

    The piece sure has that "galaxy" feeling. A really good
    choice of instruments to accomplish your musical goals.

    Everything sounds so "clear" and uncluttered. Some of
    the dynamics came out a little loud in places, but no biggie.
    I was surprised when the piece started that it was on a
    new player I haven't seen before. Kind of uncluttered with
    just a band at the top of the screen. Really nice. Wish it
    had a timing device so that parts of composition could be
    pinpointed.

    There's lots of stuff in the "Milky Way" and I think you
    found most of it...........lol. Also I wanted to hear that
    last chord held longer and tapering off into the distance.



    BRAVO,

    Hi again, Bill!

    I have just done an orchestral piano version with expanded development section! (in progress...)

    I woke up in the middle of the night doing this one!

    Thanks for lending an ear!

    Hi again, Jack!

    I have just uploaded a piano version with new development section of it!

    Later, I will go through some of the dynamics. This idea is sort of growing bigger each day now, lol!

    Yes! I will use this new mp3 player (Boom mp3), when I have bigger files than 4 minutes.

    I have now prolongued the coda chord!

    Thanks for your inspiration, Jack!

    This is really nice, and I agree - it does have that galaxy feel to it. Very fitting. Some very nice textures, and some very interesting sections - kept my attention the whole time. I really liked the pizz strings!

    Thank you for those encouraging words, Chris!

    The "Romantic" like melody on the piano made me long for the strings and the brass of the orchestra.
    I composed this 2 days ago. Sometimes I got up in the middle of the night to orchestrate and eat chocolate!

    Great piece. I would like to echo the above sentiment of the, "galaxy feeling," that your piece invokes. Your orchestration very strongly portrays the visual imagery. I have a clear image in my mind when I am listening to it. I commented about this on your overture, and I thought it deserves to be said again: you achieve a great ensemble sound. As it was said above, it did sound very clear. Excellent composition.
