Woah, thanks for the amazing feedback guys!
A good example can be found in your latest "Just a song". At the core, it's an absolutely beautiful solo piano piece, to the point where I'm almost considering asking you for the sheet music. However, the problem with solo piano music is that the performer's interpretation of the piece is just as important as the notes on the staff paper themselves. And simply writing these notes into a DAW, with relatively constant velocity and tempo and note off points, just won't cut it.
I totally agree. I wish that I could get someone to play out a few of my solo piano pieces (I have quite the collection now, I am in love with writing for it) just so I can see how other people interoperate it. I do have articulation on the paper, and when I wrote it I could hear every last note as I wrote it out. But programs like Sibelius etc etc just don't display the emotion that a real pianist would.
Sometimes the simplest pieces can be the most divine. There's certainly an air of light elegance about the songs, although a few make me wonder what a driving percussion would do with/for them. First Contact first took off when the drum beats came into play, and between that and your other work, it makes me think you could make some amazing, ear-blowing stuff if you mixed the techno/percussion in with the classical; almost like a futuristic sci-fi Renaissance.
If that's not distinctive, what would be?
I have taken this comment on a bit actually, and scored an original that I've writen into Fruityloops to get some epic beats going, and I am having a bit of fun with it! I'm also working on butchering Morrowinds theme, a game I love, although I don't think I'll put it up, Jeremy Soule did such an amazing job writing it the way it was.
I like that "Just a song that won't get heard"..I can hear this in an RPG game
The second one "Just a song" is awesome , when it started off sounded like kingdom hearts, those drums are epic. Like that fanfare, battle-theme feel too
very nice work
Check out some of my work also
Thanks again guys, it really helps
