Barry, thanks for your kind review of Blues Andaluz. You're probably right that it shouldn't be classified just as "blues". My aim was to reflect the subject of the song by combining a sort of soft Gershwin-style blues (in the style of "Summertime" or similar) with elements of flamenco. That's why an F major suddenly intrudes into the A minor to E major run in the second line of the chorus. Anyway, I've just been listening to and enjoying your Frontier Justice. Great atmosphere. Plenty of cactuses and an occasional rattlesnake. Which sound base do you use? All the best, Ian

no worries, I have songs that are hard to classify too, as many as they have, they still don't cover all the bases. Thanks for your kind words on my song. I'm just using Garageband on my mac with an interface and Slate mastering software. I'm not sure I could get the quality I have with just Garageband , the Slate software really is the key, its some powerful tools, I highly recommend it.

Nigel, I appreciate your awesome review of my Track KW1. To let you know, This song will be in an Album project of Instrumentals "InstruGrooves" that I'll be launching later this year. I'll invite you to my Fb music page. Thanks again

Hi Nigel, thanks for your positive and helpful review of Mezzanine. Glad you liked it. And your hi-hat idea is certainly worth thinking about. I've just been enjoying your "Wishing". Good and punchy. Good luck with it. Ian

Mayflies fascinate Belgian artist Françoise Laporte. As the world's oldest winged insects still in existence, mayflies have been around for some 300 million years. In French, they're called "éphémères", because of their very short adult lives. But they're also ephemeral in another way. They are highly sensitive to pollution. Just fifty years ago, mayflies still swarmed in their millions each year around some of Europe's major watercourses. Now, they've made themselves scarce. A warning that we too are ephemeral? Françoise's work inspired the duo Routes (Jul Cortoos and Ian Graham) to create "Ephémères/Mayflies" as background music for one of her mobiles.

Ian,
I reviewed Blues Andaluz shortly ago and was motivated to listen to more of your music. I listened to Light of Night, The Quirk, Needles and Haystacks, and Mezzanine. All Very nice! Great guitar work!

Norb,
Many thanks for your kind comments and the review. Much appreciated. Glad you like my other stuff too. The recordings are very much demos. I'm hoping that some time a professional will take up one or other of my songs and do something with them. Just been listening to your Haunting of the Glen - appropriately enough, as my son and I are just about to head off to Scotland. A beautiful number, I thought, very well arranged and sung. I'll listen to some more in a week or so when we get back. Cheers, Ian

Ian,
Good to hear from you. My wife and I are going to be traveling to Ireland in Oct., from Wisconsin, USA.
Haunting of the Glen Is very rough (not yet mixed and without violin which I would like to add).
Have a great trip,
Norb

Hi Jon, many thanks for your friendly and helpful review of Firechaser. My only attempt at cinematic music, as it happens. Somebody was looking for car chase music that "combined Irishness with a James Bond feel", so I orchestrated a concertina tune I'd made up a few years before. But it wasn't accepted for the film. Just been enjoying For My Queen and The Graceful Maiden. Some fine insights there, and great mastering. Are they synthesised? If so, which software do you use? All the best.

I'm sorry to hear that the track wasn't used; it's a real shame considering how great of a composer you are. Anyway, thank you for dropping a comment here and also for complimenting my music. It is really encouraging for me to receive feedback and I'll definitely continue listening to your stuff as well. I'm starting to record more with vocalists now so expect some epic tracks in the near future!

-Jon


Ian Graham posted over 30 days ago


I'll look forward to those, Jon. For my part, what I'm really interested in is getting other people to perform my compositions. So my recordings are intended mainly as demos. For the more orchestrated ones, I have to rely on synths, and I'm not satisfied with the quality of those so far. That's why I was interested to know what software you use. All the best.


Jon Babb posted over 30 days ago


Sorry, I didn't even realize the question when I read your comment. I would start off using EWQL Symphonic Orchestra. It's getting some age on it, but it still sounds good enough to get some orchestral stuff out there. But, you could always just use soundfonts if you're on a budget -- that's what I first started out with years ago before I had the means to use session musicians and higher quality VSTi. I'm still new around here; but if there is anything else you need help with regarding this stuff just let me know. I want to make myself useful whenever I can on Broadjam. I've really been blessed.

-Jon
