And From The Heavens Came Snow [FINAL w/download] MJ 10 Years Later


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Inspired by the effects of the recent winter weather, especially the now infamous "Polar Vortex" — I have created this soundscape as a musical representation of our winter so far.

On February 9th of 2004 I composed my first song. I thought it apropos to submit this as my "10 Years Later" piece. I joined MacJams in April of that year, after getting up the balls to actually post my first submission. Things have certainly changed in that ten year span. Having spent the last few years attending college for Music Theory, 'this' is where I'm at right now.

Thanks for all of your support,
Alimar

Firsties!

Very ominous. Having just moved back to NYC I can attest that I was not ready for the vortex and the accompanying 5 degree weather whilst walking the doggies. Pain-full. This is a lovely piece. Amazing you can create this entire piece solo. Blows my mind. That EastWest Composers Collection must be a monster. Great stuff.

Yes
This is a great, broad piece of music: ominous, moody, lyrical, jarring, sweet. Well done, my friend.

Snow crystals are like frozen music and your snow music is like a frozen breath of tree structures on my winter window. Very nice ! :)

High quality dynamic and thematic variations, Al. There is a grandeur of scale and emotion in this piece that, to me, typifies your work. I am in awe. Really. Music opens up such an infinite variety of styles and opportunities for self expression. Thanks for sharing your music with us. Kind regards, Peter.

This is brilliant...
...I can't say any more because there's too much to describe that I deeply enjoyed here (as I was telling Paul Page the other day, when something sweeps me off my feet, there are no words--I first had the feeling when I listened to "Rhapsody in Blue" at age 12). Your schooling has certainly paid off, this is a certainty! Full marks, all the way. Michael

This is...
leaving ME without words... To be mentioned with 'Rhapsody' is an honor. Glad I was able to evoke that sweeping vibe. Thanks for sharing your words.

When music tells a story...
...I sit up and listen. This is one of those numbers that has a detailed narrative (which you don't supply...but maybe that's by design: imagination is a beautiful thing!) and you've approached it with musical episodes that must have taken hours to work out. I so thoroughly enjoyed the complexity of the piece and the care you took in recording and mastering it. If this is "where you are now," I am thrilled to think of the future of your work.

When music tells a story...
Thanks, Paul! This was one of those things that almost wrote itself. The melodies were written idiomatically within the choir, orchestra and percussion sections. Development just followed a natural progression. The rhythms seemed to write themselves. After composing and bouncing 30 second to one minute phrases, I found myself with ten separate musical passages that I meticulously rearranged for the final version. I am honored that you find this worthy of comment!

Sincerely,
Alimar
