Comments welcome on my first GPO work! After years of hanging around this forum, and listening to so many great works made with GPO I knew I had to get GPO and I finally installed GPO4 yesterday, and made this in Sonar today.
This composition is an entry for KVR forum monthly contest, where each month a different 'theme' is selected, like write something in 3/4, etc, and this months theme was do a tribute or cover of a great musician who has passed away. So I chose Stravinsky as my inspiration.
I'm not trying to sound EXACTLY like Stravinsky, this is just influenced by him. I first wrote this piece two weeks ago on my Motif workstation as a submission to this month's contest. So there are two versions- first one I made with the Motif XS plus some Sampletank strings, and this one all made with GPO4.
The contest has a strict entry limit of 3 minutes! That limit is frustrating but also forces you to get down to business fast in a composition, to get that theme working quickly, etc.
Listen to the all GPO4 version at soundclick (192Kpbs mp3):
You can also listen to the Motif XS+Sampletank rendition from this direct link:
ps.. I thought of the title before I knew there was a member here with same name as title! (hope you don't mind!)
