Music
and our bodies are so powerfully connected and it's rhythm that binds them so.
Glad you caught the video Maurice.

When I listen to music this good..
...it truly justifies how much I paid for these headphones, let me tell you! Now, I just got back from Orchestra Hall here in Minneapolis and after listening to this I can't remember hearing the Minnesota Pops at all this evening. This has a wonderfully sweeping style to it--full of life and lends itself admirable to the art of dance. Superlatives for this Charlie and best of luck in this endeavor--ya can't miss! Michael

It's a good thing

And you don't want to see that Michael. Believe me you don't.

But I do thank you for your kind words my friend,
Cheers,
Charlie

Outstanding! The use of the low brass is great. Echos the sound of the great American frontier.

Wichita wonderful
Very nice Charles. I hear a little Copeland in there but I don't think that's a bad thing. A fine dance tune.

A bad thing?
Not in my book. There's always chapter for Copland in my book.
Thanks Richard.

I wish I could see this with the dancers moving along the rhythm you have created here. Feels like a ride of kings. Thanks, enjoyed!

Not sure
if you caught it but at the top of this page I do have a video I've put together that gives an idea of how this might look as a dance. If you haven't already check it out.
And thanks for the kind words my friend.

must be good to have a dance group as a motivation. this is very good, not musical enough to critique i'm afraid. but everything sounds balanced and well-paced. great job

Love those horns
This is strong and full of clear, large movements - a wonderful piece to dance to. You have all this cool stuff happening in the strings and then the horns come in and it really gets interesting - emphatic and soaring, grounded and yet full of an almost rotating quality that has circles within circles.

Very very cool piece. Reminds me a bit of Copland's western themed works, which I like a lot. But it is your work through and through.

Thanks Charlie,
Doug

It's got some ump.
Not laid back or even particularly subtle but upfront and I would think good for dance as well. Now I just got to find the right choreographer...

And anytime you mention Copland in a paragraph about my music just makes my day.
Thanks Doug,
Cheers,
Charlie
