    Dissonata Pt. I - first part of a suite

    Hi!

    This is a piece I've been working on. It's quite experimental (for me at least) and I'd like to get some feedback on it. Thanks!

    Hi Herman,
    I like a lot!! really a good work, and different from most of pieces heard here.
    How about some details about how did you released it?

    I think it sounds great, althought I'd chage some things.

    The horn at 0.24 seemns a bit upfront.

    Too many "static" repetitions, like riffs, doesn't fit the style, IMO, I'd compose more developpemnt, cresc etc.

    The sucession of the parts sometime's a bit strange... too surprising... which leads us to the macroform, that doesn't seems to be clear enough for me.

    All remarks subjective as usual. I think the piece has great potential.

    What libs did you use?

    I agree with the previouis comments - more development would improve the work. But it's still very tasty as is! AS lot of talent and potential here. Keep it up...

    And I love the title "Dissonata"

    It's all about the music - really. I keep telling myself that...

    Thanks for the feedback, all! Your comments are very useful!

    I used Xsample strings (a bit old but still great), SAM solo horn, Westgate woodwinds layered with Xsample woodwinds, the piano and mallets are from PMI orchestral instruments.

    The piece will probably finally have 3 of 4 movements, depending on their length. I've written most of this in one night, except for the last theme at 3:01.

    I agree it's somewhat static. I could alter some parts to create variations. The horn should be softer at 0:24 indeed. I'll be revising the structure of it, and I think I'll alter some transitions between the themes. Some crescendos could bring in more dynamics...so that would be a good idea as well.

    Thanks again!

    Xsample, I knew it.:-D I still think those solo strings sound great...

    Yeah. Lots of glissandos and fx, and especially great short bows...The sustain violin and viola could use some more attack though.
