Ok, I haven't composed much lately, I've been busy with other business... but here's a quick simple four-part string ensemble. Strings are from SR's Symphony Strings, with some drums from Sonik Synth 2.

Bass, picked Acoustic and Electric Guitar and drums are from Sonic Reality's Omnisynth.
Virtual Guitarist is doing the acoustic guitar strums.
Vocals by me

It's just half a song, cause I felt like finishing other compositions first. Nevertheless you might like it, if you're into electro-acoustic-folk-rock.


Was a whole lot of work for me to figure out how to get that guitar picking done... I created the picking style on my guitar but never managed to play it nicely enough to record it. So I was happy when Omnisynth's acoustic guitar came my way...

This is an excerpt from my latest project. I did the background music for a poetry reading of Hitler in Hell, a poem by Gordon Glass.

In the poem, Hitler is in hell, and is faced with the challenge of gaining forgiveness from the millions of people who's lives he destroyed through his evil. In the end, he learns that his evil was the result of bitterness over missed oppertunities. He is granted a one day respite from hell to paint, with all the talent of the artist he should have been in life. This excerpt is the finale of the poem.

This is my first attempt at orchestration. For the string sounds, I used sounds from the Symphonic Strings Expansion Tank. The Clarinet, Timpanis, and Trombone are from Sampletank XL, and the Piano is the Nice Steinway D from the Piano Collection. The Drums are from the Studio Drum Capsule.

Feedback would be greatly appreciated.

:)

Haven't checked this thread in a while. Some very nice stuff here. Always good to hear some Peter Gabriel, err, I mean Donkey Tugger.

Harmony, that is an interesting piece you have done. I like the piano quite a bit. The one criticism I might offer is that there is a lot of reverb on the clarinet and strings. A drier sound would lend more of a stark quality to the piece, which may or may not be desirable for the mood you're trying to evoke. Without being familar with the entire work it is difficult for me to know what an appropriate mood would be for this finale, so take my half-baked musings with a grain of salt.

At any rate, thanks to all for sharing.

TY Frunobulax. I will try your suggestions. The whole production is over 2 hours long, so it's hard to pick which things to post. I'm glad you liked the piano part. That theme runs through the poem and is largely used to evoke a feeling of meloncholy. My basic mission was to create music to express the underlying emotions of the charicters in the poem, and to compliment the action of the poem. In the poem, Hitler grows a lot, and at the end of all this, he introspects on the lessons hell is teaching him. This is what I was trying to convey in the finale. I should stress the poem is a fantasy poem. I hope that I've done justice to the poem, because I was truely moved by the poem as I worked on it.

It's a Middle Eastern orchestral piece done entirely with SampleTank 2 and OmniSynth.

Sorry about the lame stream link, I'll post a direct download link later. If it doesn't work when you click it, just copy and paste the address in your browser window.

I listened to the song "Just in Case" and flashed back to a very happy 80's moment - although this particular song reminded me of Cat Stevens (part of happy moment), I also think of Mark Knopfler and Peter Gabriel whenever I hear your voice (hopefully these are all compliments to you as they are meant to be).

The music is very good but your voice definitely adds a special something for me - look forward to finding more of your songs.

Spirit of the Ancient Wood

Wrote this a week or two ago... done entirely with ST2 and OmniSynth. New age-y Celtic-orchestral type stuff.
