    Sinfonietta No. 5 in Eb (work in progress)

    a work in progress.... you'll notice in gets a little skeletal toward the end. I imagine this should be 10 minutes or so when done....

    Hi Karen – I do remember you, but I haven’t been around much the last year, so I’m not sure how much I remember anyone. In fact, who am I? Oh, well, I guess I should hang out here more often…

    Anyway, sounds good so far – “so far” seeming to mean mostly complete, or at mostly laid out. Looking forward to hearing the completed version.

    I know that I have been missing from this site for a long time.........I usually hang out on the Sonar Board.......but I come back to give your music a listen on a regular basis.
    I was listening to this work this morning and then went over to your sound click site just so I can listen again...........Your work has improved soooo much over the last two years....I am just amazed at how much it has improved..........
    I think you are gettting to your goal.........
    Keep up the great work.

    Karen who? Lemme think, lemme think... lol. Oh, yeah -- now
    I remember. Didn't I buy a '66 VW bus from you back in the
    seventies...?

    Seriously, I think a lot of us have been pre-occupied with
    other matters lately. Either that, or just screwing off like
    me... lol. Good to see you back.

    Nice work on this one... a lot more drama (and more effective
    drama) than I've heard from you in many cases; and -- I know
    this is WIP, but -- far better control, execution and structural use
    of contrasting thematic, textural and coloristic elements.

    Keep this one rolling, I'll be following with interest. And don't
    be afraid to dive hard for the broad sweeps this material is asking
    you for!

    My best,



    David

    Thanks David,
    your advice is very timely and much appreciated! I shall dive as deep as I dare, then.

    Best wishes,
    Karen

    It's good to have you back Karen,,,

    Cliff (truckermusic) has also been missed, and he is right,
    your attention to detail is radically improved.

    I am confused somewhat though...
    the intro has what sounds like a pipe organ,,
    When someone says that your music sounds like a pipe organ, (and it's not)
    it just means that notes are too steady stale.

    I don't think this is pipe organ, I think it is supposed to be woodwinds like flute and clarinet and some others, but I can not distinguish the instruments. It might help to lower the velocities some in those instruments so they don't "pump" too much. It would really help to create dynamics in those instruments and in fact, if it is a flute, I recommend using the alto flute solo V, it sounds great. All too often, the GPO flute solo V is overused.

    GPO can sound wonderful can't it.

    Dan, the very beginning is flute (not solo flute) doubled with orchestral harp. Thanks for listening, and for the tips!

    Thumbs up Re: Sinfonietta No. 5 in Eb (work in progress)

    Wow! That is sweeeeet! Awesome work on the percussion! Just enough to compliment the orchestration in colorful highlights.

    Hey Styxx! How's it going?

    I just put up a new version of this on Soundclick -- you can use the same link already posted to listen.

    Thanks so much everyone for listening.... yes, I am getting a bit better at percussion, although I still struggle with my notation -- I did purchase a book, though, on percussion writing and notation, so that should help.

    Dan, I haven't used your tips above yet, honestly because I am not very good at under the hood stuff with Finale, but I think I just go to the VST and fiddle with the right knob or slider for the pertinet instruments, yes?

    It's been a weird year -- I miss the folks on the forum and its good to be back. Musically, lots going on here.... On another topic, I just lost a very close friend to brain cancer (actually it was multiple places in her body). she died just two days before the 1 year anniversary of my mother's death. She was only 50.

    Anyone been writing any limericks lately???

    Hope you all are having a fulfilling, peaceful year.

    Best,
    Karen
