    "Rouser" demo using EWQL and GPO mix

    I just uploaded a new piece (work in progress) in response to people complaining about the Pirates of the Carribean music (It works, but many people want to hear a returne of ye olde fashioned seafarin' music). It is inspired by my experiences in boats, and loosely I guess a response to people calling for better Pirate soundtracks

    You can check it out at my site:

    Any critiiques would be welcome. How am I doing on realism? I think I would make more realistic repetition in the short repeated notes, but tell me if anyone notices. If I do that, I'll re-post.

    Jesse,

    I enjoyed this piece a lot. It seems fitting for a pirate movie.

    The opening horns sound wonderfully ominous, but the staccato notes that follow sound a bit strange--are they woodwinds? brass? both?--as does the overall reverb. Seems a little far away for my taste.

    The only percussion I seem to hear are cymbals and perhaps a bass drum. Wouldn't some soft snare taps (or press rolls) be fitting?

    The development of the rest of the piece is nice.

    Thanks very much for the feedback and your kind words. I'm working on it as we speak, and will keep your comments in mind. Those staccato notes are the high woodwinds and trumpets playing in octaves/unisons.
