Topic: I rather big project I plan to work on...

    A rather big project I plan to work on...

    I've decided to that I would write a symphonic tale based on a story I created. I'm hoping to write around ten pieces for this story, if not even more. I got the introduction finished (not final though, I might make some revisions), and I've already got the next piece sketched out, though it's still in the writing process.

    So here's the introduction. It's around 7 minutes. (The very end of the piece, the last couple of seconds, will make an immediate transition into the next piece.) Tell me what you think, please.

    Wow!

    Off to a truly excellent start on this, Cata! This is gorgeously romantic writing.

    May I suggest backing off the reverb. You're journeying through the realms of classicism in this, let those clarion lines speak out in their natural clarity!

    I am definitely looking forward to hearing more of this.

    Go to it, my friend!

    Thanks for listening etLux! Yeah, maybe I should back off the reverb slightly. I've always liked to 'grand hall' feeling, but maybe I should lower the wet dB a bit. I usually keep the wet a slide slightly higher than the dry one. But meh, I'll see what works. Thanks for the comment!

    Superb work, Cata. The wide range of tempo and dynamics were refreshing and the brass and percussion were especially well done. Be sure to include this on your resume.

    Go with your instincts, Cata -- remember, this is just one opinion (about the reverb)... and certainly not from the best set of ears around here... lol.

    In any event, came back for a second listen on this today. I do hope this piece gets more attention... there's much truly fine writing in this!

    As I said earlier, I will most definitely be looking on with interest as this ambitious project develops.

    Good speed!

    Nice !

    This work was a great beginning. The intro had a distinct creative deliberateness…more than a mere sequence of harmonic notes.

    I agree about the noticeable reverb..Stands out a bit strong upon the piano introduction. I may also pull back on the volume during the second half. (perhaps my ears are too sensitive)


    Great work!

    Yo jeff. Thanks for listening! Heh, I do kind of think the section where the piano first kicks in is a bit muddy. But it might be due to the pedalling, I'll expreriment around with it soon.

    Thumbs up Re: I rather big project I plan to work on...

    It's really a symphonic tale, and it may make enough sense to justify the wonderful even if old language.
    IMHO You show to be brave challenging this writing, more than if you had used the usual atonal, modal and polyrithmic actual style.
    (but certainly you have enough space during the tale for exploring a lot of other musical idioms, if you will need)
