Thank you for taking the time to review ...
So, I really enjoyed the 5:00 classical - contemporary and titleless piece of yours I just reviewed and came here to check out some of your other work to find they are all titleless. So, you have me curious now! Why no titles?
I listened to the other classical piece and enjoyed it as well. My recent music is piano as well and your love for dissonance and tension is really stimulating. Thanks for challenging my harmonic sensibilities!
Thank you so much Loren for nice comments and your attention ... of course for constructive comments , too .
That was like computer because my computer played it , I am not a Piano performer ...and the piece is just something to show the listeners the notes , not even working on dynamix in MIDI file !
About the question here , I don't like to title my music because when you start to listen in this way you have no preconception and just go for the music and listen to it "More Musically" than related to the literature or any visual depiction by me , and you can find your complete interpretations separated from the composer's view ...
Thanx again , I will come to listen to your worx soon .
Why you name your pieces ?
So, your question about titles spun me off into a new thought process! I have come to music through pop channels, writing for and playing in bands for which songs were as much a product as they were an artistic expression in the purer sense. The title is a way to reach out and grab the listener in a way that engages them in the song in a memorable way. But, you are familiar with this way of thinking, I am sure. Solo piano is a recent direction for me, and I've never even considered not titling my work and how not doing so might affect the listener.
So to answer the question, I title my pieces because the way I compose is to start with an image or emotion and begin to play. The title is a summary of that seed of inspiration that moves the music. I have come to view music (for me) as a voice inside that speaks a language unique to me. Composition for me has become en exercise in connecting with and releasing that voice as honestly as possible. When I do so, the result is something very personal and emotional for me. The title is the starting point, and the music is what I have to say about that image or emotion. So for me, the title is integral.
I suppose I could remove it and just let the music itself speak to the listener in whatever meaning it has for them. But, I enjoy understanding what music means to a composer. The story behind it often increases my connection with the piece and the artist. So again, a personal preference.
Thanks for the question and helping me uncover my own assumptions and crystallize my own viewpoint. I'd be interested in your impression of my music. Wine Glasses would be a good starting point. It seems to resonate with others the most.
All the best!
Wine Glasses , nice , moving piece ...wise on gliding into the main motif's variation potentials .
Birthday Wish , the title describes it , light and warm ...as a look on the shines of future ,
Tea In Star Bucks and Floating Art were also cool .
...good recordings , too .
I feel these worx are like confessions , so pure to expressing feelings . They are very close to eachother . You have a Romantic taste and it seems you are a warmhearted person . Good luck !
One another thing I liked was the idea of mistakes that you left them to be there as a part of human's life and performance . You know ? I'm acquainted with the idea , the listener feels more intimate to the performer ...of course the Juries , festivals , voting systems don't like it but it could be there as a metaphor of mistakable movement of life .
Of course as I can remember in 20th century there were composers who tried to write some pieces which were similar to mistaken performances but the idea was different from that you did .
As you want to give a kind of mixture of literature-point-of-start and a musical-description of it , I can say it's a good thing , you could mix them together well , well-suited to eachother . Yes you were right , I am completely familiar with the ideas of naming , it is about four years that I am thinking and searching about it via composers ...I also have sometimes starting points in words or images or memories but I hide them in my own privacy , not to give preconceptions , opposite of your viewpoint of "what music means to a composer" .
Another thing about your comment is that I don't want to say : "let the music itself speak to the listener in whatever meaning it has for them" as you thaught I'm saying . I'm not saying anything about speaking , I just regard the unconscious feedback of a listener to a work , however the outcome is the same , my view is that one , not the idea of speaking ...
all the best ;
Hello Craig , Thank you for the review and nice comments ...
Thanks for your review and comments.
Hey Pasha, Thanks for the insightful review of my song " PICKING CRYSTAL ". I will consider your constructive comments.
Hey , you're welcome
Thanks for you review..
Hi Pasha, Thanks for the review and your insight on my song "Magnetic Attraction". You had a very comprehensive view of the song whcih was spot on! Dave - CenterPeace
You are welcome , Nice track :)
Thanx again Scott for the review of that classical track , may you get some idea from the details of the track in the profile , and I should say I just wanted to show the idea and I do not have any performance of that track yet , so it is just a simulation ...
Thanks again .
Hi dear Kenneth ,
Thanx for the review and interesting comments .
Neither this one nor most of my worx are not based on a movie and I didn't imagine such a scene you described ...and I laughed when I saw the name you chose ...I really like that play ...
About small musical pallette and harmonic spectrum I should say I know and it is on purpose , an experience with an eastern theme in a minimal contex , it is not a minimal work though ...I draw a distinction between minimal music and this texture but having no climax or much development on it is because of the influence of minimal texture I wanted to acheive to some extent .
And of course it is a computer performance of that score ...just to show the idea . so ,...
Thanks again ,
Thanx MI SIC for the generous review of my long track ,
Thank you scott for the nice review .
I think you made a mistake to recognizing the sound of woodwind instrument owing to my mix , it was not good , I didn't use woodwinds in that work but I know that the mix is so bad and I am mixing it again , in one or two weex I will upload the new mix here ...
Thanx again ,
Thank you for the review ,
That one is not a song that the others like it much , most of the reviewers wanted to know what I am going to say in that song ...a Noise music ! as I received from musician here most of them are not aquainted with this genre , but why ? I do not know ...
About the intro I should say it is a kind of making the listener curious about the song , to continue listening to find out something strange ...
Thanx for the review ,
Most of the reviewers of this one have something to say about the bass line , some liked it some not , amazing !
At any rate it is my only Trip Hop experience ...
Thank you for taking the time to review ...Happy you liked it , I am busy on mixing my materials these days and one of them is the one you reviewed ...
Hello Joe ,
Thank you for the review , not happy you didn't like it as it seems ! but thanx for taking the time ...
I myself do not like the Mix and these days I am busy with mixing it again , and of course all of my other stuff ...The chaotic sound is intentional ...I felt that for a while in cubic ambience of my skull !
Hey Pasha, thanks again for a great review of my song "In the End". I really appreciate your input and great ideas.
You are welcome Lil Puf , happy of being helpful ...
Thanks for yet another review Pasha! Much appreciated!
You're welcome , nice to listen to you ...
Hi again Pasha. Thanks for another good review of my song "Until the Smoke Clears". For the whole mixing and recording engineering part of it, I've sorta picked it up on my own, so I don't really know exactly what filters are or what they do. If you have time, I'd really appreciate it if you could explain that to me. Thanks again.
You're welcome , for both ! :)
Sorry if I wasn't clear , it needed more explain it seems ...I meant you can make a use of filters more in your music composition , just you can add some more musical figures to it by using filters of your synthesizer to bring more variety , just as a suggestion :) . I didn't write about recording and mixing , its mix was neat I think .
oh ok, I see. Thanks :)
Hey Pasha, thanks for the review of my song "Ode to the Beach". I know it is really short, but I made it for a commercial opportunity so I didn't want it to be too long. I've gotten quite a few comments about expanding on that song and "Light Ocean", so I think if I ever make a deluxe version of my "All Alright" album, I'm gonna try to do that. Thanks again.
Thank you for the review, Pasha! Loving your own style too, the constructive critisism was really insightful! --Nate
You are welcome , nice track , I liked it ...
and another thoughtful review, Pasha. Thanks. I agree about New age, and have moved 'Terminus' into that category.
You are welcome Paul ,
I enjoyed , your inclination to classical music is completely obvious , skillful ...
Sorry for lowering the rate because of the genre , may be a little fair for others ...just 2 rates
Pasha, Thank you for the review.
You are welcome...
Thanks for reviewing "Jesus Help us" ---Robert
You are welcome , nice song ...
Hey thanks for the review. I will def attempt to implement your advice in my next recordings.
You're welcome , happy you find it helpful ...
Whats happening Pasha....Thanks for the review. Good Stuff... that song is definitely a work in progress. i really enjoyed playing the mandolin part that starts the song and I got a little carried away I guess. Good-luck and much success to you...
You're welcome , nice track it is at any rate ...
Hi Pasha. Thanks for your review and comments. Much appreciated. I'm certainly looking at doing something more than just the piano version. :)
You are welcome . nice to listen to the developed version of the piece .
Thank you Bellamy for the generous review of my song , and welcome to the broadjam ...
thanks Pasha for your review of So Alone Tonight--you are spot on with some of your comments, and this is an "old" one that i trusted with one of my first outsourced people, who did a good job, but i should have really not only sung this myself (scheduled for a total re-production "someday" when i have the $$) but instrumentally it needs more cohesion...
all the best
You are welcome , nice to listen someday to the version you are thinking of !
Hello Yuri ,
I tried more than ten times these days but it didn't work , I think the system has a problem ...
I copied the mail here ...sorry if it's not helpful , make it a personal message ...
One of the things that divides people from each other is viewpoint , about mixing my view could be a little different but you know it's taste , in mix we can work on anything on purpose to show something , I do not know yours but I like to separate my Drums' parts in different places of space ...and I think Bass was a little in the right side , isn't good to place it in center ? in overall I think mix was neat , may you could make it more dreamy , but it may change the concept you focused ...
About music I should say nice , energetic and in line with your concept , instruments accompany eachother well ...if I were working with you on this project , [first I would add a synthesizer part to the track which is not the issue here ] I would go for more Organ part development and as I considered , the Bass has an inactive part among/in comparison with the others , it can be more involve with the progression of the work in some way , may improvise can bring it into more or it can come up to answer other lines , even once or twice will change its role to a more active part ...
Hold on Yuri , different possibilities are many about any project but the only thing which will make you satisfy is closing your eyes and think : what can make you free from being interested in the others' opinions before finishing the project ?...aren't you satisfy with it ? That is the point which will make the track , your inner-side ...I think you can do it in the best way ...
So , just forget my suggestions and thoughts ...and Hold on
All the best ,
Thanx Yuri for that ...for honesty and nice words ...
I am mixing almost all of my worx these days , I will re-upload them again when process finished , about that track I should say I forget what it sounds but it is in queue , may be a month later I work on it or two , but thanx , these days I am collecting the things that reviewers wrote to me about mixes and will consider them ...for sure yours will be helpful .
