im just gonna keep buggin a about this till i get my desire from you my loord i shall continue waiting........................


Fine I'll ease up.
It does remind you of simpler times.
My atari died last month.

Hmm just a few things...

Well its a great listen but I think it lacks energy but of course there's not much room for a lot of diersity and energy in this catagory. Maybe it's just because im not really into somthing this...uhh...what? Calm, thats it. So no penalty.

MaestroRage responds:

Indeed, this piece is not supposed to have much energy to it. In fact it's supposed to get you in a dream like state. Kinda just... being there... in your head by yourself.

Wow, i'm getting sleepy just thinking about it. So tired =_=

Oh well, it IS a difficult piece to appreciate, as it's not a head bopper, or a sad piece, just a happy little tune :)

Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it!

Yo Maestro

I think you have good enough grasp of "passing the ball" orchestration wise between instruments, and a genuine knack for melodic figures. What I'd really love to hear in your music, would be a greater variety in tempo, and rhythm, and some more "composite sounds" and texture in your orchestration. By no means am I trying to say "change everything," I hear great natural potential in your music. But experiment with odd meters... 5/4 and such. Perhaps that seems arbitrary to you but what is really exciting about composing I'm finding out is experimenting and discovery. I'd really like to see what you could do if you attempted something you weren't comfortable with...some project to get your head completely out of the box. John Cage and other composers of the 20th century like Arnold Schoenberg (for the love of God, please examine him carefully) are some more extreme examples. You and I should go in on an project together, with some unusual format and both try and produce something foreign to our usual palettes. That actually sounds exciting to me. I'll zap you a PM about it.

MaestroRage responds:

You're quite right Neal. I did this piece BECAUSE I needed to experiment. I havn't tried doing anything with an odd meter, though I suppose it's high time I gave it a shot yes?

If you suggest I look at Arnold Schoenberg and John Cage, then that is exactly what I will do. I have a great respect for your ability Neal, I look forward to a collab with you sometime.

Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it!


the flute/clasrinet or whatever this is, is really good in this one , the strings in the backround adding a nice emotional feeling to it sometimes uplifting sometimes straight dunno how to explain

in every piece of yours i can imagine a story to it, and thats all about the classical music, that you can put emotion, feelings, story into one piece(thats my opinion)

the fact that i voted a 8 is, it was a little confusing sometimes and the woman choir was kinda weird because it was just a ''la'' and thats all

it would have been better if you wouldnt have used the ''la'' and the voice sounding really familiar to me, sounds like the russian remale opera singer, i forgot the name

overall a really nice classical piece good job meastro

and i would be honored if you check out my classical loop, i really would like to read a honest review

MaestroRage responds:

I wish I had a woman choir that wasn't "la" :(. The only Opera soundfont I have is that of Irene, and she only has "La". I look nearly every day for a good opera like soundfont/vst, but I turn up empty every time. And you're right, the opera singer is Russian. Irene... something. I forget her last name.

I am sorry I havn't checked out your work yet Zajed, I will drop by very soon, I swear. Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it! I apologize for the late response!
