    Symphony Electric

    Here's something a little different.

    Mostly electronic sounds except for the third section.

    Mr. Fastlane,

    on this very saturday morning at 07:30 I started listening to this marvellous piece of music.

    The first part reminded me of some future city, the skyline of a destroyed surrounding in the 22-th century (Sci-Fi). You best know these pictures were futuristic flying cars are crossing the sky, looking for a place to land.
    The second part gives me a relief, friendly and loveable. As if everything wasn't that bad.
    Then the third part came in, more some prolongation of the previous moods.
    Part number 4 is rather strange, for me not quite adequate to those first three, but interesting and lovely fades out.

    In one word,great.

    I really like this.. The mixing of electronic and traditional music. Quite enjoyable. Pauses quite effective..

    Thanx for the inspiring piece.

    I have apologized before for my romantic likes, so I will not repeat it. When I got to about 5;20,I was enjoying your music very much. It is truly beautiful from there on, and the last part lost me.
    But that loved part is still in my ears and heart, it showed your heart and talent to me.

    Really quite nice. I am very interested in applying electronic music within a traditional orchestration, so this piece is especially attractive to me.

    Hi Phil,

    It took me some time to listen to your marvellous piece, but finally here I am. 4 different sections, 4 different moods and orchestrations. I agree with Raymond that the last one is a bit out of the rest, but nevertheless interesting.
    It is true that the electronics from the late eighties have a certain charm and that they opened a whole new sonic world to all kinds of composers. It was no longer necessary to create the sounds in endless programmed strings on primitive gear. That made it possible to focus more on the musical content that on the technical aspect.
    What you did is simple wonderful: exploring the preprogrammed samples combining them into a colourful composition. Really great!
    The opening section reminds me of my old Roland SCC1-days.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Dear Phil
    The 10 minutes are already gone. Music that can make me forget about time is of course brilliant. I was so deeply focused on the music that I actually didn't reproduce any pictures at all. I listened to the nice melodies and to the rich sound picture and thought if I should pick up any of that sound myself. Someone told me Beethoven would have loved the sound bank today's electronic offer us and indeed it offers creators like you infinite possibilities.
    I do think that maybe you could provide some sort of program notes helping the listener with the images and impressions.
    Great composition.

    Hi Raymond,

    I’m sorry to disappear for a few weeks. I’ve been quite stressed out over my daughters ongoing multiple health issues lately and have had to as they say adjust. This last possible diagnosis is as strange as it is rare and she’ll be seeing a Medical University Professor. She seems to take it all in stride so I guess i should also.

    Now, on to the music.

    I think your pretty close to how I feel about the first part. The second part is sort of a happy dance and departure from the first part. The orchestral part required a lot of chopping until I felt it kept enough interest as it’s pretty slow and has a sameness to it. The last part is what it is. I didn’t like it at first and was gong to replace it but in the end it seemed to belong. For me it’s a simple sing along melody in the vain of Auld Lang Syne.

    I’m really glad you liked it!

    Ted,

    Yes, in some ways it sort of falls of a cliff at the end but I’m glad you enjoyed the more romantic parts. There is an electronic music composer I like called Squarepusher who comes up with some of the most caustic rhythm based noise/music possible but he also composes beautiful classical guitar pieces.

    Thanks much for your comments.



    Phil
