Entitled, "Blue Chalcedony".
First off, i have to apologize for not finishing my responses in my last post. We went away for 4 days to a snowy hideaway. I wasn't able to post replies to everyone that was kind enough to give comments and compliments. I thank you all now for taking the time to post.
I didn't want to reply again because it would jump that post back to the top. And i'm sure it's outlived its time on the front page as it were.
I bring you today a symphonic poem (a.k.a. tone poem).
I finally found some time to start converting my material to use the new sample libraries. YAY! And i must say, i just LOVE the Steinway Piano! I can't believe it's just a software sample. I swear i can hear harmonic overtones. The tone and dynamics are just remarkable. I can't wait to use it more.
In this piece, the piano, harp, oboe, & horns are GPO. The strings and alto flute are Edirol. I'm having a problem getting the GPO strings to behave the way i'd like. But i'll get it sorted out soon.
TIP: Close your eyes and think about the title while you listen.
PS: I understand a tone poem usually has a specific 'programme' attached to it, but this one is still in my head and i haven't put it to paper just yet. So feel free to be imaginative when you listen.
Thanks for listening.
