Wow, this is good stuff man

You never disappoint as far as I'm concerned. I've been liking your stuff ever since I heard thracian jazz way back when, and I'm very glad you keep uploading things. Its nice to see real music put up here for the NG community. I listened to it a couple times over just to make sure I can give a solid review, and I can say there isn't anything negative to say about it. The only thing I can say is that the it definitely needs to be longer, and more greatly varying tones could add some kind of greater depth or juxtaposition as it strikes the ear even if they're added subtly. Either way I always like your stuff so just keep chugging along dude, and I'll be glad to look for any new work. Until then good luck and peace. 9/10 5/5
make this stuff longer dude O.o

Thanks for review. Also, soon will be out my rock band's album and my own jazz album is getting closer to a shape... :)

Love the duduk

I am absolutely in love with that old Armenian instrument....I first heard it in the score for the move 'Gladiator.' It makes for a wonderful sorrowful timbre. I think you could work on the articulations of the duduk a little more, because some parts sound a little sampled (but actually its pretty good for what I've heard of the duduk). I also think the strings could use a little more stereo seperation, it kind of sounds like they are all centered. Also the attack of the strings could maybe use a little more time since its a slow piece. I do like the harmony you have going in them though.

Do you have any plans to extend this piece? It ends pretty soon for not being a loop in my opinion.

Overall great!


sorohanro responds:

I plan to do some more stuff with it but at the moment the biggest problem I have with the strings, way to "fat", too big, to "Hollywood" and not matching the soft timbre of the duduk.
I'm in need of a more thin sound, more like Baroque chamber music. If you know a library with smaller ensembles and no vibrato please let me know.

Thanks for review.

Love the possibilities

that this track has. I would love to hear a continuation of this melody sometime. This seems to be the intro into a full-blown (excuse the pun) orchestral piece.

Thanks for review.
This will be a bit more but first I need to find some strings section that sounds a bit less "epic Hollywood" and more on the classical chamber music.
