Hey Joe,

Thank you so much for your generous comments on my track "Felicidad". I really appreciate it.
I see that you compose orchestral and choir music as well. I will listen to your tracks as soon as I will have some time off. I look forward to do so.

Sincerely,

Stelios

Hi there Stelios!
Thanks for your great review of Skylark! You are quite the accomplished musician. Maybe we could work together in the future...? Would you mind looking at my I Dreamed a Dream and let me know what you think of the arrangement (my own), counter melody in the cello/strings (mine too) and the orchestration...I always need a great orchestrator!!! Good luck out there and on here and all the best to you!

Hi Deborah,

Thank you for your good words. Coming from a musician like you, I have to say that I am honored.
You have done a remarkable work in your tracks.
I listened to "I dreamed a dream" and I really liked it. Strings are very wisely used, passionate, but on the same time discreet. I also liked the changes in melody and of course your vocals.

However, one of the most interesting thing in all your tracks is that you always put in there nothing more than what your music needs, always skillful, but never overflowing. This is a virtue I highly appreciate.

Yes, I would like to collaborate with you. If you have an idea, a melodic line, or just lyrics (I am a horrible lyricist), I would like to work with you and establish a collaboration. I am also interested in orchestration.

All the best,

Stelios

Hi Stelios,
Thanks for the very kind words. Yes, would love to collaborate sometime on a project. Where do you live? LA ? I get to LA pretty often since my sister is out there "in the business" (movies that is). She was in The Artist and on the Golden Globes. This business is tough to break into, you have had much success. I'm very happy for you. I do write lyrics mainly, but also hear tunes, etc. let's be friends on here and keep in touch, okay? If you are ever in Texas please let me know? Take care! Deborah

I also have to mention that my producer, Troy Warren of Absolute Sound, was fantastic in aiding with the arrangements and orchestration...he is in Houston too.


Stelios Koupetoris posted over 30 days ago


Hi Deborah,

Congratulations for your sister! It is really obvious that behind this good sound there is a good producer. I was about to ask. It will be my pleasure to meet both of you. Actually, I live in London, but I will be in LA this March for a documentary. I agree, let´s stay in touch and maybe we may come up with something.

Sincerely,

Stelios


DeDe WedeKind posted over 30 days ago


yes, we live an ocean apart! But the world is getting smaller and smaller. Good luck with the documentary. Sounds like you are into social issues, a good thing.

Dear Stelios, Thank you for your kind review of my song, "Time to Practice Gratitude".

I just listened to Girl in the Dark and I am very impressed. Wow! I can see why you have won all the awards for composing for drama. That was very spooky with no girl walking into harm on the screen. Thank you again and good luck--you should definitely be submitting to the licensing opportunities on Broadjam! Best regards, Sue Nikas

Benjamin Stone posted over 30 days ago to Stelios Koupetoris


Hi Stelios

You ask a good question, it was a song I wrote and produced under a deadline and and brought in a session musician. The problem was he was a bartender for his day job and i think he also did a lot of blow.....did not know that when I hired him. Anyway, it took three nights of him showing up totally bombed and out of it for me to seek other alternatives. In a perfect world I would have found another sax player, but by the end I only had 12 hours to rap and deliver to the production company. So I used (in a rare case) a feature in pro-tools called "beat detective" and replaced his horribly played line with a sample line. You can still hear one of his better (actually the best take barely in the background where there is a sax double starting about half way through. Rich Pullin hated that double line and said it was a not a good technique and detracted from the mood of the sax tones. But it was a sort of work around that worked out in the end. I like the song and the melody a lot and may someday reproduce the track. But I don't write Jazz as much as I used to.

The Sample is from Chris Heins horns Library. Which I think is pretty great. I blame the time crunch for its final state, which leave some listeners wondering if it is a real sax. It is half real. :)

Kind regards,
-Benjamin Stone

Hi Benjamin,

So good to hear from you. I always admire and enjoy listening to your music. The track is great and now that you mention me that you had such a tight deadline, I think you have done a remarkable job. Well done!

I had to face a similar issue once i was composing for a children's play and I used the Brass from Liquid Instruments Collection. It is a phrase editor with some very expressive loops installed and It has its own editor even as a plugin and this might become a bit tricky when you do not have the time to spend learning how it works. But it is based on Melodyne' s engine as far as I can remember, so if you are familiar with the program, you will find it very easy to use. I agree CH library is very good.

Again, the track is really great. I am looking forward to hear more jazz tracks from you. Do you have any others posted here?

All the best,

Stelios


Benjamin Stone posted over 30 days ago


Hey thanks Stelios. Yes I do, some are much older (from the 90's and I did not ever produce them beyond the sequencing in the Korg triton I had back then.
Dreamer In The Dream (last Jazz I did, but it won't appeal to any Jazz purists. However a nice demo of Hollywood Brass)
Kronic Blues
Hot Brainy Woman
Top Shelf Whiskey Drunk
Coffee
The Parlor


Benjamin Stone posted over 30 days ago


I'll take a look, I like Melodyne but dont have much experience with their stuff.


Stelios Koupetoris posted over 30 days ago


That's great, I am looking forward to listen to your tracks. By the way, what do you think about Hollywood Brass?

I have made a mistake earlier. The exact name is Liquid Instruments-the saxophone, by Ueberschall. I would not use it on every occasion, but in cases like the ones we faced, it can be really helpful and deliver very convincing results, because it is actually based on loops played by sax performers that you simply edit and tweak. Though, as any pitch and time procession program, you cannot get the most out of these samples without the usual artifacts on sound.

I just got a new synthesizer(Spectrasonics Omnisphere) and expect my music to go to another level. Can't wait. I just finished writing and recording the soundtrack for an hour and a half independent film called "The Test". It will be released later this month. It's too bad I didn't have my new synth while I was working on it but I'm certainly not unhappy with the way it turned out. Some of the recent tunes I posted on broadjam are in the movie (A New Beginning, Low Street, The Test and Visions of You, are a couple of them). I'm so looking forward to working on more. I had so much fun!


Paul Messina posted over 30 days ago


Love your music Stelios. I wish I could play piano as well as you. You are great!!!!


Stelios Koupetoris posted over 30 days ago


My pleasure Paul,

Your track is really great. Well done, I hope you go further with your career. Omnisphere is one of the greatest synths indeed. You will enjoy it on upcoming productions so do not worry.

Sincerely,

Stelios

Hi Mike,

I know, money is always an issue and it is unfair sometimes Because we always have to stay updated in an industry were we rarely have income to support this kind of funding. However, there are some good low priced libraries that you can deliver remarkable results with a bit of tweaking. I would not like to mention them online, but if you want I can send you some links. There is also a top-class university that offers a significant to one of them when enrolling to one of its online courses. The total amount for the course and the library is approximately the same one to get one of the top libraries. ,

Sincerely,

Stelios

Hi Steve,

It is always a pleasure to hear from you. I really admire your music. Every track is so different and rich in it's context. I consider the issue of "personality" in one's music as one the rarest and most important virtues of a composer. And you really have that on every track I have heard from you.
All the best,

Stelios
