Feeling a little inspired of late when I found myself out in the middle of a wide open Prairie and "heard" this tune.

Nice
You've caught the wide expanse... the endless horizon... nicely done. The only suggestion would be to do a little tweaking on the string sounds.

Ah those strings.
I"m always playing with and tweeking them.
Sometimes I think I'm pretty close to what I'm after and sometimes Garageband starts balking making music making a little more of a challenge.
Anyway glad you dropped on by LunaTrick and for the careful listen.
Best,
Charlie

Hi Charlie....
I like the feel of this piece.

Knowing what the music is about helps me picture the majesty of the scene/s that you witnessed.

Take care.

kinda like
that famous composition they use for the Beef commercials.." It's What's for Dinner! "
very nice composition. i liked the high strings especially, they really set the tone for the lower harmonies to flow around. great post.
Allen Dean
Bowman said 3862 days ago (May 15th, 2008)
Aaron Copland...
though he had no idea it would be promoting beef, wrote the piece you thinking of for a Ballet called Rodeo. Great work by a great composer. If it brings him to mind I'm deeply honored.
Thank you Allen,
Best,
Charlie

I am very
pleased that you led me here. I am no classical expert but I know when something sounds expressive and full... and this does. Lovely listen.

it was my pleasure to find your music. I'm embarrassed it's taken me so long. I should get out of my little box more often.
Thanks for the very kind words.

Hey Eduard,
It's a beautiful day here today in San Diego. Weather's gorgeous and I'm hearing from my neighbor down South.
Drak, your ear takes 2nd to no ones and your points, as always are well considered.
I'm still working with this at home and will try out some of your suggestions though Garageband is starting to protest at what I'm asking from it. I'm almost afraid that it will just shut down and say go try and figure this out on Logic and get off my back. You only paid less a 100 bucks for me what do you want?
Take Care and thanks for the advice - and the compliments too.
Charlie

Nice
Nice expressive, flowing work here. There are only two things... possibly give a little breath in the middle with some lowered dynamics or drop some strings for a bit to help the final build-up... and the high strings had a rather piercing quality to them, perhaps a teeny more tweaking with the EQ there, taking the high-end edge off a little?

But I like the low end counter-movement, it does give a feeling of huge fields of waving grassland. Cool aural imagery!

ttfn,
Drakonis

Big Sky
As RickW says, this has a Big Sky feel for sure. I imagine a trail of people traveling across the prairie... So much of your music has cinematic quality to it, and I know you also make movies, so I'm wondering if you ever write music for your own films?

Cool piece!

Thanks Clark,
Over the years I've spent less time on film and more on music. But I have used my music in several projects, sometimes sparingly, sometimes wall to wall, and was pleased with the results.
In fact I'm now putting together a film to work with a piece of mine called "Flight over Baghdad". It's a powerful music and so far I think it will make a powerful film. When it's done I'll post it on You-tube and let you and my fellow Macjamers know. I'd love to have your take on it.
Thanks for the interest Clark and for your, as always, kind comments.
Best,
Charlie

The Prairie...
...is an amazing, amazing space. You caught it here, Charlie. Puts me right back there.

It's really quite the experience to hear it in your head first and then get it out there for others to share...isn't it?

Thanks...

I never take it for granted...
and often think about how so many composers throughout history who never had that opportunity.
Thanks for catching "Prairie" Bob, and your kind comments.

Charlie

Hey Enrique,
I'll get a saddle from the barn and set you up on Old Paint. He's a real gentle soul that loves to be ridden.
