I recently just finished my mix of an orchestral piece I wrote for my college orchestra to read. Although the reading went fine, there was so much missing from the recording I received of the reading that I felt compelled to make my own mockup. This is my first "real" venture into mixing--although I have tried to before, I never have spent as much time into the actual mixing process as I have for this mockup. I'd love to hear what you think, and enjoy!!
I think this is an interesting piece. It's a bit Stravinsky. The orchestration and sound are very good, at some points spectacular. I can't quite analyze the instrument combination at the end, but it sounds gorgeous. I think you've written quite a nice piece, although I can hear why the orchestra would have a hard time. Anyway, this performance no longer needs a live recording: it's good as it is.
