    Prelude for Brass and Percussion

    Here is a new piece scored for Brass and Percussion. Setting is the cathedral reverb.

    I do have a question - this piece has a piece with rapid-ish repeated notes. What is the most natural way in GPO to render brass repetition? I will admit I did no research so - RTFM is an answer I'll accept if its that easy.

    Re: Prelude for Brass and Percussion

    Hello, vaisvil - I'm trying to work my way down through the list of pieces posted in The Listening Room, after an absence of over a year.

    Glad I asked to see more than 1 month of posts displayed, that's how I discovered this fanfare from you. Nice!

    Out of an effectively, turbulent chaos emerges a bold and serious fanfare - I really enjoyed the short, dramatic ride this music took me on.

    I do think the reverb is too heavy. You said you used a Cathedral, the one in Garritan Ambience I guess you mean. That's a nice reverb, but extremely dense - it can't be used 100% wet, and it sounds like you were at that, or at least almost full on wet. It would be a worthy experiment to try that dialed back by half, see if the music isn't more clear, yet with that huge Cathedral sound still there adding to the effect.

    Thanks for the post!
    Randy
