Going Places

This is a Classical-oriented piece of music that I've started to try and learn to the way to mix and meld different instruments together. It's early days yet with this type of music for me.

Let me know if things fit or not. I'm always a sucker for comments.

Sounds like the start of an ambient or experimental rock piece. Have you ever listened to "Atom Heart Mother" by Pink Floyd? It may give you ideas about where you can go with pieces like these.

Atomic Heart Mother????
I've not heard of the track but guess what I'll be trying to buy this weekend??

The mix is just a Classical experiment with view to arranging different families of instruments for experience when I start writing/recording my own Classical music, later this year or next year.

Thanks once again for your comments. They are always appreciated.

Take care.

I'm glad you enjoyed the piece.....
There will be more of this type of music although this particular tune was just put together as an experiment. It was not written music but arranging phrases so that they played together well.

THanks for listening and leaving a comment.

Take care.

Loops, I take it?
Harp. Ok. Harp and brass. Fine. Harp disappears. Whereto? Brass does some more stuff.

The mix is fine. Even the harp & brass part sounds plausible, even though a harp would be inaudible when faced with all that copper.

So, eh, now for a full length composition....

Hey Vic....
You listened to this piece very carefully. Thanks for that. I had forgotten the arrangement details and had to listen again to appreciate what you had put in your comment.

The mix is supposed to be from light to heavier, to see if things did disappear or were complemented in any way.

I'm a complete beginner to this sort of arrangement so there will be other experiments coming along over the next 50 years or so, so don't hold you breath waiting.

Your comments are very helpful and I appreciate, once again, your details about this mix.

Take care.

Sometimes it's a good thing not having too much training and set ideas about what music should sound like, it allows you to experiment and just have fun! This to me is not necessary classical music, but a very nice combination of a soft modern beat with harp, some brass and definitely is worth exploring more. Has a light, sweet quality and can still build and go in any direction you choose - the unexpected turn you take when you introduce the brass works great, keep the staccato strings for a little longer though not to loose the momentum you build. Very enjoyable already.

Thanks for the comments.....
Thanks for stopping by and listening.

The idea is one of many that take a hold of me for varying lengths of time. I tried to identify the source of the sounds last night but didn't come up with any clues.

When I re-assess the tune for modification, I will be doing the new work from scratch so expect something even more different and not so 'technically correct'.

I agree about having more pizzicato strings. I love these type of sounds, so will use them sometimes in my new music.

Take care.

Very interesting
and quite different from the music I've heard from you before. I like the combination of sounds and instruments. I would be very interested to hear where you might go with this kind of approach. Certainly this needs to be longer. Very cool. Nice work. Peace.

Many thanks Dajama......
I used this mix as a one-off experiment. To see if disparate elements of orchestra would work together in a suitable enough way.

This piece might be dead in the water, unless I resurrect my ideas of the time. It was an idea and the spark has gone, to all intents and purposes, and so it would be easier for me to create something else from scratch, but in a similar arrangement.

At the time I mixed this piece I was busy with a dissertation and so did not pay too much attention to how the music fit together, and there were no notes put to manuscript, so my 'bigger picture' for the piece has vanished. I could transcribe the mix but I don't think that it's worth the time.

At the end of the day I'll just have to see what happens.

Thanks for stopping by.

The brass sounds good and the melody is interesting. The drums don't sound classical. May be more like a suspense movie soundtrack. The theme is good but too short and you need to expand the theme and may be counter with a different theme.

Thanks for stopping by......
I hear what you're saying Enrique. The mix was simply an experiment in mixing classical and pseudoclassical sounds to see if anything worthwhile came out of it.

More similar works will follow, in the next few weeks.

Take care.

It fits.
The finale has a lovely melody line, get yourself some nice horn samples and build that sucker up in four part harmony until the joy leaps out into our semi-collective consciousness. Easy Maestro.

Hey TW....
Thanks for popping in for a shuftee.

I hadn't thought about any horns playing a part but, with the experimental head I have on at the moment, anything is possible.

The piece itself was left unfinished and forgotten, so my original ideas have been lost. I'll see what I can stir up, idea-wise, over the next few weeks and what the result sound like that come out of the mixer.

Take care.

I'm currently busy with getting my life back on some sort of track and hope to get into the music making business again in the near future, with a planned third net album 'Karma of Love' that will be an Immersive Ambient set of tracks. This should be... [see more]
