    The Sleeping Nymphs

    Well, I call this one The Sleeping Nymphs which is an oxymoron if ever there was one. He,he.

    I sent it to my lady friend but it was then it was called The Sleeping Forest. I not stupid!

    Anyway, it's just a little ditty with the Garritan Steinway and a pad from SampleTank.

    That's a really nice relaxing song. Nice melody and flow. I think it works well as a short song, but if you lengthened it and added a full orchestra it would also work well IMO.

    That's a pretty little tune, Phil. It would be a good project to flesh that out with woodwinds and strings, maybe a harp.

    --Um, there's nothing inherently offensive about the word "Nymphs." They were wood sprites, nature spirits, a bit fairy-like, from Greek Mythology. They have nothing to do with what you apparently associate the word Nymph with.--

    Phil! Your sleeping nymphs sounds nice to me. It is simple, but a nice simple. I could just barely hear the pad in the background. I would like to hear this built into a bigger piece with more instruments and such.
    Thanks for the post. Jay

    Phil: Lovely. You gotta orchestrate this and flesh it out some!

    Thanks Chandler!

    I could keep it as is or use the basic idea of it for something larger or at least longer. I have done that before and I think

    it turned out well although it didn't have the simple charm of the original.

    Randy,

    Well, I guess I have a knack for coming up with a pretty decent tune;

    Yes, it might work well with a harp. I wonder were I could find a great harp library?

    --Um, there's nothing inherently offensive about the word "Nymphs." They were wood sprites, nature spirits, a bit fairy-like, from Greek Mythology. They have nothing to do with what you apparently associate the word Nymph with.--
    Oh, I was just being silly. I researched the history and lore of nymphs and how it was twisted around to refer to a mental disorder or worse.

    Thanks for posting. I appreciate it.

    Hello Jay!

    I'm glad you liked it. I'm probably a minimalist so I guess I have a tendency to use as few notes as possible.

    I had to keep the pad pretty quiet because too much velocity brings out a sound like Arnold's Predator. Maybe that's where the sound came from.

    Thanks for listening!

    Thanks much Art.

    I'll have to work on it and see if something clicks.

    Lovely, Phil. A poem without words. Short and yet powerful.

    Very good piano sound indeed!
