First of all my humblest of apologies for what appears to be a genuine mistake of my mis-reading of your replies. I think the problem being that I read the use of the word "you" as personal rather than in its use of speaking generally about people. I take back everything I said and apologise deeply if I offended you. It was a knee jerk reaction to a genuine mistake that I shouldn't have allowed to happen. Without labouring the point I will try and explain how I read some of your responses.
I said......You can even see the notes appearing on the screen as you create them...amazing!
Far out. . .Same happens when I put pencil to ms paper, the notes just....appear before me - just wish the right ones would!
I read this as a sarcastic reply....
In doing it this way the final recording has a live feel to it also and sounds quite good.
This is a matter of deliberation. A discerning listener might not agree than a pre-programmed electronic performance has a live feel... Of course, if you're into today's pop music it's a suspension of belief that anything is live...no?
I wrongly read "if you're into todays pop music" as another personal attack on my personal musical Level and tastes, plus I had mentioned that I perform the music live on my keyboard and so I thought you were still calling my performance as being "pre-programmed and electronic"
I also do some copy and pasting of repeated sections etc...very handy!
Unless you're becoming the new Mike Nyman, Ugh! But you'll get rich in a pop studio.
Here again I took the "Ugh!" and the "You" as a personal address.
Most of my pieces are short descriptive works as I am quite lazy and dont like to spend more than a few hours on any piece before I get bored.
Why is that? Aren't you worried that if you get bored with your composition, so will your listeners most likely?
I would like to think I was being a bit humble and modest hear but I do think that this reaction could be misconstrued as a personal attack! Surely you can see this? I didn't know whether or not you had listened to any of my music at this point.
One day.....I spent 7 hours simultaneously composing, notating and composing a piece.... Waltz in G minor. I had latched onto a nice theme that I didn't want to lose and so spent the whole day completing and developing the theme into a 2 minute composition which I am quite proud of. I also spent three consecutive evenings (about 9 hours) notating another composition "16 Variations in Cm (in the style of Beethoven) .....I was too lazy to do the next 16 Variations!
That's nice... And a lovely retro touch, using keys.
Here again I read this as a sarcastic remark to do with the fact that you thought that I didn't play my instrument at all during the recording process.
However, may I venture the view that you are hardly a "struggling composer" if you couldn't fight the laziness...!!! Schubert had this trouble - wrote almost as many unfinished as finished symphonies
I didn't really get this, but by this time I was so fuming after mis-reading several of your responses that I just took it as another insult.
Good luck. Keep it going - but...what instrument(s) do you write for?
This did get me thinking "After all the comments and what , at the time, I thought were insults, you hadn't even taken the time to follow the Link and listen to my music"
Once again, Rhapsodin, I apologise for the mis-understanding, I hope you can see why I made them and I take back everything I called you. If you get a chance, maybe you could pop over to my web-site and listen to my music.
I need some support now after the comments by GuestWho who I will now reply briefly to.
GuestWho, you are entitled to your opinion of course but anyone who proclaims judgement on any piece of music after just a few brief seconds of exposure to it is pretty ignorant if you ask me. Also, anyone who purposefully sets out to offend someone's work which they have put their heart and soul into is pretty insensitive. Do you even like Piano Music? I am proud of my music and nothing you will say will change that feeling of pride that I have. I won't even suggest that you listen to the rest of the samples and not just a couple because I cant be bothered.
Incidentally, what instrument do you play and do you compose at all yourself? I bet you dont or cant even. If you do, please give me the privelege of hearing it so I can hear what a "Good" composer sounds like.
|It appears to me that you have deliberately posted a link,so people can have the opportunity...if they so want too...to purchase your CD.|
The topic was about "Composing" and so I put a link up to my compositions which I thought was relevant to the Topic. On my website, yes, I do have the facility to buy any of my music if desired. I haven't broken any Laws have I?
Rhapsodin, once again I'm sorry about the whole mix up. Can we start again? Incidentally, can I hear samples of your music anywhere? I'd be interested to hear it.
