Description
This one might be a bit intense and may not take you to a happy place, but every once in a while things get to me and in those hours I find comfort in making music. And although I consider this to be only slightly more than a draft, I'll probably move on to a more cheery subject for my next post!

In the meantime this is open for comments. Thanks!

My turn...
I feel I need to simply refer Rob's words above, and agree vehemently.
The darkness and foreboding is palpable here, you weave the clouds that
hang in the air and choke the beauty from the world. The (musical) scale
is tipped gently toward the middle-east here, I can hear it woven in, but it
is not overtly pronounced. The timing of percussion and horns is, as
always, perfect. Well done! No critiques here...
ttfn,
Drakonis

sublime orchestration
This is a very tastefully created piece of music. The instrumentation/arrangement/orchestration is sublime, as is the so well balanced production. Great all over. Walter

Dark and Masterful
I very much like the mix of orchestral and electronic elements (with a
slight Near East feel) and the mood this invokes. Excelllent production,
very cinematic.

Pro-level
This is very well done. Great job of setting a mood, and still making the
piece very dynamic as it flows. Great orchestration decisions, great use of
sounds. Wonderful job of engineering - this track, besides being so well
written, sounds excellent, as well. Very polished, very pro, very
interesting, very compelling.

I can picture
the bad guys going about their business planning some gruesome attack
or other, a bit James Bond-like at times, maybe because of those oriental
sounds. But a draft?! I don't think so! This is professional "out of the box"!
Q: Did this just take a few hours to make? :stunned:

Parichayaka said 4017 days ago (October 22nd, 2006)
Well...
Most of it was done in one evening/night, but polishing it took another one or two sessions. The reason I call it a "draft" is not so much about the musical, but more because of the emotional aspect, which doesn't quite satisfy me yet. I guess I just like to have a positive, more resolved energy in my music. Thanks for your interest!

AquilA said 4017 days ago (October 22nd, 2006)
Intricate...
...and moving. An excellent piece. Reminiscent of Hans Zimmer's work in
Gladiator, and I mean that as high praise. So many textures, so many
layers, great instrumentation.

Parichayaka said 4016 days ago (October 23rd, 2006)
How nice of you...
There's obviously a world of difference in accomplishment between Hans Zimmer and me, but I consider Gladiator his best work to date and any similarities, real or just really generous encouragment, I consider to be a good thing! Thanks a lot, Aquila.

This is a great piece with a lot over subtle movement. I do like the choice
of sounds... but most of all the note choices are excellent in conveying
the mood. Good work

Definatly sets the mood for conflict. I'm sure some video game designer
out there somewhere would go totally bonkers over this track and hunt
you down for it! In fact I encourage you to solicit your work. It might be
fun..

Brilliant execution

Razor sharp and compelling.
Dark, ominous, sinister yet totally compelling. Don't know if you're
commenting on the current Middle East conflagrations but it took me
there. Feter mentioned Maurice Jarre the wonderful composer for the
music to Lawrence of Arabia. Yet to me and maybe this was who Feter was
thinking of it evokes his son Jean Michel Jarre who is more into synth
composing. In any case great piece.

A-ha!
Really appreciate your comment. You have an excellent sense for subtlety and drama which also shows in your own music. I didn't know about about Maurice Jarre and Jean Michelle Jarre being his son. Thanks for that too.

Deja Vu...
I'm getting a slight sense of deja vu when writing this. I feel as if said
what I'm about to say before. A few times, even. I guess there's a reason
for it.

I just love this and I have nothing to criticize!

And let me just say this - you're definately one of my top 5 favorite MJ
artists.

There. I've said it!

Outstanding.

I'm glad you got something out of it. I don't usually have a concept when I make music, I just let it "flow". I guess that's the beauty of making music without any commercial obligations.

other than I think you've really outdone yourself here.

Thanks for your interest
I'm using Garageband with all 5 JamPacks. The bansuri flute is from JP5, the string orchestra and Steinway piano from JP4. If you're really interested I could send you a screenshot (but email is disabled, so...) Usually play in all instruments with midi keyboard and use pencil tool to adjust and modify, especially the rhythmic parts. Also used individual drum sounds from the library (Persian market drums). The snare drum used for the concluding rhythm is the only sample not from the Garageband package.

Underscoring with quality production
I especially dig when the grand piano comes in. I imagined, if this were a concert piece, that a driving solo would have followed. Haunting, hip, multiethnic, seamless journey. Cinematic music often has a necessary simplicity to it, short melodic themes that need repeating, motifs. You achieve this thru mood and chordal nuances, since there are really no lyrical themes. Above all, you maintain a production quality that reverberates depth and quality, which would lend itself well to underscore many different actions. Very nicely done.

Parichayaka said 4012 days ago (October 27th, 2006)
Priceless!
Comments like yours are the reason I joined MacJams in the first place. There is indeed no lyrical theme, as I preferred to use the various instruments to tell parts of the journey with the only repeated theme being the ending. Seemed to work best to convey the transient but unresolved energy behind this track and is (admittedly) part of the reason I called it a work in progress. And by the way, thank you for taking so much of your time to offer your expertise to so many of us. I consider your stopping by something like a "stamp of approval" and is yet another inspiration to improve.

Ratcheting up the tension
This is really well orchestrated and mixed, with a great use of 'real' and electronic intruments. The piece has a lovely sense of motion, and of something not quite being right.

A totally professional sounding piece.

Intense indeed.
This is an excellent piece of music, and with a great production. Your arrangement is pretty dense, but somehow it keeps sounding open. The details are never obscured. That's pretty tough to do, and you succeed well. I like how well the electronic drums fit in wiith the orchestral sounds. Nice mix of the old and the new.
