an old piece i was lucky enough to have played with real life stings

an old uni piece.
gutted, we had a few weeks notice to record summin to be used in our disitation that was gonna be played by a string quartet but as usual i couldn't be arsed and left it to the very last minute.
still, for a last minute job i think this sounds pretty lush.
there were very little dynamics in my score, luckily the musicians were pro and used their heads...
vocal talents at the end by dr howard burrel, head of music at UH, what a legend.
recording is shit coz it was through my little sony mic onto my MD player. i'm sure there's a proper recording somewhere...

this is a really great tune, something like Bartok's works
i loved the harmonyes, especially the dissonances

too bad that the quality of the recording isn't what the tune deserve ... at least give it more volume (please)


I thought the song was good...BUT...It's too sappy in my opinion :( Kinda something that would put people to sleep. Something good about that would be the string instruments playing was good. I believe its a bass,and violen,or bass, and viola?? But I also think that the guy talking was not profesional

Taffy job! (and I do like my taffy)

Everything here was awsome. The only thing that bothered me was the recording quality. It wasn't bad, but it could have been better. Also that break where the guys talked...hmmm. Not very profesional. Don't get me wrong though, the composition as a whole was still really cool.

Just wondering, who all is playing everything? You? Or a group?
