    Ambrose - for piano and cello

    Hi all,

    This piece is the main theme for a short film that I'm scoring. A kind of bittersweet tale, which I wont go into yet. I doubt that this full theme in this form would 'fit' into the film, but I certainly wanted to retain this extended version.

    Just good old GPO piano, and the cello is from East West.

    Thanks Michael - glad you like it.

    This piece has kind of sprung out of nowhere. After reading the script to the short film (still waiting on an edit of the movie) - I sat at the piano and wrote this in about 20 minutes. And yet it's become one of my favourite compositions in the last few months.

    Behind all my big sound cinematic stuff, I really just love the simple themes like this, piano and little else.

    That was beautiful. I like music that is just down right enjoyable to listen to. That is why I love New Age.

    Graham - I can see why it is one of your favourites. Very nice compositions! Our compositions are like children to us - very special.

    From a technical point of view, it would be nice to have the cello come out more in the mix. Finding a good virtual cello is a challenge these days now that the Garritan Gofriller is no longer. As for the piano, there is a Garritan Steinway Grand with your name on it - waiting for you. It would make so much difference (assuming you it set up right and have the right reverb etc etc)!

    Ok, you've convinced me. :-)

    I don't have 400 dollars lying around, so I've just bought the basic version of the steinway.

    Hello again, Graham - I'm obviously working my way back in time through the Forum. This is the GPO piano, but now you have the Basic Garritan Steinway--quite a difference, eh whot?

    But this sounds just fine. Very frankly, gushingly romantic, and when it's done honestly, there's no arguing with it.

    oops--the ending of the recording is truncated before the reverb tail fades out. It happens.

    Very nice--Thanks.

    Randy
