Pt. 4 - The Inner Core



 Genre: Classical

Get Flash to see this player.

Part 4 of PlanetEarth Suite. This is 4 part piece written by me (Colin). I'm 11 and wrote this for a class project where we had to create something that represents the four main layers of the earth. I did it with loops in Garageband 2 and Jampack 4.

Please listen to all 4 parts:

Welcme to MJ Colin! I listened to all 4 parts - wow, you sure have a
good ear young man! Do you play any instruments as well? I liked "The
Mantle" best, but thought your use of JP4 loops showed real talent.
Excellent posts for anyone - for someone so young, outstanding.

lots of brass
Aha, something to critique, finally! About 1/3 of the way in, you are
fading the long brass notes in and out, and it sounds a little fake, more
like turning the volume up and down, instead of the brass players
playing louder and softer. This is hard to fake in GB, so I would maybe
just not fade them too loud or soft... just do it a little bit. I really like
the almost-ending melody with the flute and brass playing stacatto,
that flowed really nicely. The very end with the bell is OK, but the
traditionalist in me wanted to hear the violins and brass come in one
last time with a final long slow ending chord to swell in and finish it
off. But you know what? This is absolutely wonderful. I hope you had
great fun putting this together, and I look forward to hearing more of
your music here on Macjams! Good luck on the project... Oh, and if
you are not too busy, say hi to your dad for me.

Well Done!
I listened to the four parts and was amazed at how you put this project
together. I hope to hear more songs from you soon!

I hear bells...
...and then I hear a cello, or maybe some kind of bass...Then horns...

It kind of makes me feel sleepy, and yet I feel too excited to fall asleep.

Well done
Hi Colin. Welcome to MJ. I compose with loops also, so I listened
closely to all 4 parts. You have quite a talent. You have a good ear,
good timing, a feel for dynamics, and know how to put loops together
into a cohesive unit. The only critique I would offer is in Part 4; in the
first few measures and in the mid section you give the impression that
the finale for the Suite will be rousing and dynamic. You surprised me!
It was subdued instead. Also, in the beginning of Part 4, the shift from
punctuating percussion to quiet harps and strings was rather abrupt
and disconcerting.

Overall, an excellent composition! You keep composing music like this
and you will go places.

God bless,

Love the beginning
right off, cause it kinda has a feeling of Enya, then when I keep listening I hear this terrific almost suspense type orchestrral sounds with tbe beating of the drums like in Steve McQueen, being taken back to the Natzi prison camp. As it continues, it really gets even more exciting with the violins going at it, which is a fav of mine in this tune. But the horns are nice, especially the french horns. Love the extreme variance of sound in the instrumentation and keeping of the marching theme and doing it slow and well as marching tempo.

Nice bells which authenticate the whole piece almost like a conductors stamp of approval as he is motioning the percussionist to have at it with introduction and ending of the bells.

What a delightful piece and so dang young to boot. What a bright future you have I am sure. Keep going with the wonderful music and good luck in all endeavors.

Very nice meeting you at Macworld, really enjoyed meeting the both of you and walking around at macworld SF.

Thanks for the sharing of this really nice instrumental.
I was reading a bit about some fantasy about Richard Byrds fantasy diaries, I don't think they are true but it talks about going to the North Pole and entering a hole into the center of the earth. Maybe that started the idea of journey to the center of the earth original movie. But then I think you are studying the layers of the earth as a more scientific study. I was just wondering in class if the students get off the beaten track and get into here-say. Which I guess it is, I am trying to find the opposition and the concrete evidence that most of that fantasy stuff didn't happen. And there are some believe that it did. But I'll bet that the teacher probably sets students straight on what actually is in the earth and nothing like a hole in the north pole could occure :)

But it is funny you can start to study about the live of Richard Byrd and these secret diaries come up.

But anyway, when I hear this music and the title it kind of sets me back a bit and start a thinkin :)

Thanks for sharing!
