SQ in G min - I. Largo (3:33)
Slowly waking up.. realizing the situation is foreign, different from your previous waking state. A tower of vegetation, surmounted by fog, dominates your field of vision. Walking hesitantly around, the realization that you've been abandoned in an ancient hedge maze dawns on you like the low level sun that has just peeked its head out, creating a comforting yet eerie ambience around your vicinity. Gnarled roots and overgrown weeds impede your footsteps as you wander round corner after corner. Hope, blossomed by the notion that mazes have exits, is trampled by the harsh reality that you can only describe your predicament by what has been experienced since waking - this wretched place, becoming more isolating by the moment, could have an expanse of many, many miles. You can feel yourself skipping merrily down the steps of despair, as insanity may be the only way out. Losing control yet continuing to tread the unknown path you reach a break in the brush as the heavy set fog thickens and all that remains is a bright, white void.
I am not so good at discussing music in technical terms, but I can certainly close my eyes and see where the notes take my imagination. I really like this.
once again, flawless! XD
Everything I said in the review of the other version applies here. Every bit. Beautiful job, mate!
gets 10's across the board this mate it's bloody mental. gorgeous though. there's so much drama in this track it's amazing, remember like the old B&W movies of the 30's nd 40's like some crime thriller or something like that, it'd score one of those easily. the only thing i have to say tho because of the formula there didnt feel to be any sort of deviation, peaks and throughs but that is clearly understandable as to why that is. It's a great experiment though and i really should have an attempt at making something with just numbers and formulas. great work and i love you.
Thanks pitters, you foxy man, I love you too.
I gotta tell ya, Simon-F is redoing this with GPO solo strings and there's really going to be peaks and throughs - the written dynamics and stuff are working much better there.
And yeah, you sure as hell should do a math track, it's great fun to do and I'd be very interested to hear yours!
Really nice job!
Very nice work considering the constraints put on you by the numbers.
This was quite a sad little track - I would have never guessed that a formula would have resulted in such an emotional piece.
This gets a 5 - very very nice job!
Thanks LJ, funnily enough the constraints spurred me along when I was making this.
The adjective "emotional" means a lot :)
was some mad chords in there, some really juicy changes and in mood as it progresses. very well arranged but u should really work to expand the orchestration on this, it would be awesome. yeh, listened to twice now, am loving it, gj
Expand the orchestration, maybe someday, but it would cease to be a String Quartet then... what I will do is make it longer, especially the ending doesn't satisfy me as yet.
Btw Simon-F is redoing it with Garritan Personal Orchestra, where the solo instruments don't sound like crap. He gave me a little preview yesterday and it's going to sound waaaay better.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
