BLANK MIDI ATTACHED due to the involved multi-track recording/arranging, using virtual instrument sounds and virtual effects and software DAW plus the PSR sound generators

NOTE:

this is a test posting to confirm that mp3 files can be listened to first before downloading the massive mp3 file, hope it works because i always have trouble uploading , copying and pasting the links: what do you expect from musicians

Midiw,
This is a very nice tune, with lovely voicing, and all put together very well (Multitrack I assume....I did think however that some passages were a little shrill and loud eg(violin)

Thanks for taking time to listen.

Thanks for your comments because i do want "fresh" ears listening.

I am still learning how to work with virtual instruments and effects that are tracking a midi track or by playing the virtual instrument in real time .

Also the quality of a speaker system has something to do with upper, middle, lower sound frequencies. Some of my mp3 files sound better in my cars sound system then in my studio set up or even the living room system. For example when i am listening in my car its like wearing a super sized headset because i have a set of speakers at the rear, at each side and in the front. That effect can be misleading. Also listening thru some computer speakers system could give a wrong impression especially in the upper frequencies. Now in my case my ears are not what they used to be either.

OK, it's of to try out another version on that violin track.

Hi midiw

An excellent piece of music which I thoroughly enjoyed. Lots of light & shade with some really nice touches here and there. Perfect for a 'medieval' type soundtrack I thought.

Beautifully played and arranged throughout. I didn't find it depressing at all!

Thanks for uploading something so totally different.

Regards

Paul

Thanks Paul.

Over the years in dabbling with "computer" music i have come to realize how complex the process can really be and not as easy as one would think and then just marvel at how the great composers ( Mozart, Bach, Beethoven and that other guy ) did it with just paper and pen ( and one of those guys was deaf, or so they say ).

Honestly, if i had to make a living at film scoring using computer technology such as for example copy/paste, looping and double tracking i could earn enough monies to buy a plate of fish and chips once a month.

For me it is time well wasted.

Walter

Hi Walter,

Yes, it's amazing how these composers without any way of hearing how the finished article would sound, could completely score a piece from their head.

Many years ago I worked for a small company that used to score chart hits for the Mecca organisation. Each score would have to work for a 3 piece group all the way up to a 15+ piece band. Every part of the record had to be accurately scored, including the vocals. We were sent a vynil 45 to work from. Even the lyrics had to be worked out.

The guy who I worked for, (a guitarist by trade), could listen to every part and write it down with no problem! I had to do it the hard way, bar by bar!

He fortunately had that rare gift of perfect pitch which as we all know, you're either born with or you're not.

Modern composers, such as John Williams, Hans Zimmer etc. although extremely talented have a luxury, with all the available technology these days that the 'old' composers never had, which goes to prove how really special they were back then.

I forget which composer it was, maybe you know, who, as a child could go to a piano recital and memorise exactly what the pianist played, and then go home and play it!

I struggle with remembering what the buttons on my Tyros do!

Anyway, keep up the good work, I look forward to your next one.

Best regards,

Paul

Hi Walter
Very impressive composition, very simple but manipulated with voices to make it sound fuller. Nice orchestral voices too although I think the panning of the voices could have been improved to position them as per an orchestra.
We are aware of the limitations of uploading Mp3s and expecting them to sound like .wav and this hasn't turned out too bad in this respect.
I too look forward to your next upload
Cheers
Spike
