    "The Meadow" - Composed by Chris Ryan

    Hi guys,

    Well, I took my second crack at writing a symphonic piece, and here's the result. I'm slowly but surely learning how to use Garritan Personal Orchestra, and I'm loving every minute of it!

    Achieving such a result at your second attempt you are showing the best way what GPO can do!

    Can we have more details the gear involved in this realization?

    Best regards

    Thanks guys!!

    Fabio, I composed this in Finale 2007, and played it back through GPO in several segments for balance purposes. Then I then I mixed the segments in Garageband... no use of a mod wheel or anything like that.

    Hi Chris!
    It is nice soft music and you did a great job of blending the instruments and the choice of voices, you sound like a veteran! This has got movie theme or music or both, written all over it. You must be a young man who has a very peaceful heart!
    But now, after checking out some of your other stuff on YouTube, I'd REALLY like to see you do "With Glory in Their Eyes" using the GPO! I'd love to hear you do that, I'm sure you'd do a terrific job!
    Thanks for posting this one and keep up the good work!
    Best regards,
    sd cisco

    Superb sound, I'd like to say, and a very sweet melody. I like the counterpoint around 2:10. I've heard worse attempts at romance from the great Hollywood composers. They should have asked you instead!

    Thanks everyone! I'm a Motion Pictures major in college with the dream of one day scoring for film, so your feedback is extremely important to me.

    sd cisco, much appreciated. "With Glory in Their Eyes" was the first symphonic piece I wrote using GPO, but after spending so much time on it with my high school orchestra, I don't think I could ever create a mock-up that would do that experience justice! It's too near and dear to my heart.

    And FLWrd, if they'd come to me, I'd GLADLY do it.

    Thanks again-
    Chris

    Hey Chris,

    Really gorgeous piece.

    Its one thing to write great music. Its another thing to write appropriate music. Its a wonderful thing write great appropriate music and thats what you have done. Terrific rendering Chris. Is this straight out of Finale or did you bounce to a sequencer?

    Keep in touch,
    Andy
