Hey John,

This is quite interesting. Of course it's hard to offer some kind of valid feedback, if the work isn't finished: There's more to be heard, it is rather unmixed and the reverb is missing. So we can't 'guide' you to the next step really, can we?

On the other hand the ideas you have in the harmony are quite nice and work rather well, though a bit cliched (what isn't in this type of music, or in any music, to be honest?). The orchestration is a bit ok, but on the weak side, since it would require some added woods to make it work further...

Not much else to say.

What was the process? I'd be interested to know what tools you picked up at the beginning of the hour's work, and how you used them to create that music?

Oh - and never apologise for anything you present here, or anywhere else. If it needs apologising for, show us something better!

Sounds like the movie music to a dramatic scene. It is a bit cliched as far as it goes and what it really wants now (to my ears) is contrast. What was your intention or plan with this?

Thirty-seven seconds long? An orchestral piece?? Seriously???

In most real orchestral performances, it takes that long for the maestro to raise his baton!

Or, is this from the Minimalist School?


In music, everything one does correctly helps everything else.
