    Red face Hey everyone, please take a moment to hear my GPO piece

    This is the first time I've tried to post something for you all, and Jerry W. has very kindly agreed to giving me some space on his site... (thanks Jerry!).

    I'm trying to get a demo together, and this is to be one of the entries -- it's only a minute and a half long, and the working title is "fantasy" (boy does it need another title, I guess...). I tried to write some "magical" sounding stuff. Anyway, I'd be grateful for any feedback from all these composers on this board!

    Here's the URL,

    And thanks to Gary for all his hard work in the first place!

    Hi Steve!

    Very nice piece! What a wonderful one to begin your demos here on the forum with! It is delightful. I really enjoy your woodwind writing! The little "conversations" they have are great. Nice Mix, but the lush strings (or whatever you used) could be a LITTLE louder. But overall - this is great - and you are using Finale as your playback?? Wow! Very nice indeed.

    What computer hardware setup do you use? (Mac? PC? speed? ram? etc.)

    Thanks for sharing your talent!

    Thanks Jerry, you're very kind.... I think you're right about the strings needing to be pushed up a notch, too.

    I have a PC, Pentium 4, with about 3.5 gigs of RAM (cause I got frustrated, and decided to max out).

    And, yeh, I love woodwinds in general... what amazing versatile colors they are.

    Beautifully orchestrated! I actually like the strings hovering in the background - the one place where they have their own phrase might benefit from a boost in volume - they give an aura and presence.
    Very nice, indeed.

    That's really delightful, Steve
    I agree with the comments about the strings being too far in retreat.. but I'd suggest, rather than simply globally increasing the level, let them come and go in waves, to follow/enhance the general dynamics of the piece.
    But it does sound gorgeous, anyways

    Great Job Steve.This piece has a charming transparency,and a sense of delightful interplay between the woodwinds.I also enjoyed the harmonic progressions used.It sounds to me ,that you are well on your way with GPO.
    Congrats on a fab piece.
    regards

    A sparklingly good listen........

    Frank

    Are the woodwinds the tiniest dash out of time at times? or does that just add to the charm?
