Instrumental: Cello, piano and violin
really captures the feeling and emotion of birth (had to listen to this one as my wife is a midwife). A real sense of regeneration, growth and new life that is captured so well in sound. You have a real skill at capturing images/feelings/emotion in sound and this would work so well with film, well done
I find this quite nostalgic and romantic. Perfect, perhaps, for a scene in which the two old lovers are united after many years of separation. The camera showing us flashbacks of their memories together alternating with scenes of them now embracing.
This another sweet, visual piece. Again, I'm seeing new life. Perhaps stop-motion footage of trees growing and merging to form a forest. Your music is very clear, light, and refreshing!!
Beatiful. I really like when the violin comes in as harmony and the piano carries on as the main voice. I guess I am easily fooled. I'd swear I can hear the cellist favoring one direction of his bow over the other or the pianist varying the dynamics for emphasis.
What a wonderful piece, I loved listening to it, has a sweetness to it, I feel like I'm sitting in a parlor and lovely ladies are playing before tea...LOL, you always put pictures in my mind!!
Really nice arrangement. This is so far outside of my box (I can't read or write music). But I can totally imagine this being done in a TV score or something.
Love how the piano and instruments weave in and around each other. Really beautiful!
Definitely has a place in film.
I do indeed hear it fitting scenes about new beginnings (births). Can also see it in the beginning OF a film, where a character is travelling...with pan outs to a winding mountain highway and their vehicle.
You definitely create imagery with your pieces!
I really enjoyed the interweaving melodies here, you clearly have a great vision for matching music with chosen topics as this really leaves you feeling something new or fresh has taken place.
Wow, what a beautiful song! It fits the title perfectly (or vice versa). I'm sry (for me) that I took so long to reply to your listen.
Agree with the others. You have composed chamber music that is very pretty! I could see the performers in my minds's eye.
This is composition, not songwriting (to borrow a phrase from @ductapeguy). It builds and progresses beautifully. Lovely use of dynamics, and the choice of instruments is perfect for the work.
I closed my eyes and forgot where I was. Music hasn't done that to me for a while. Thanks!
How beautiful! These Two "Parts" Continue Fading in and out of Each Other like it exactly has to be like you did it.
Very beautiful, warm, gentle and loving composition. Gives a very nice feel, atmosphere and vibes. I like your choice of instruments as well.
Love it when the piano comes in. Beauty and openness is what it feels like. Nice interplay between strings and piano, it works for sure.
This is a beautiful instrumental. I could see this being in a movie a wide variety of movies actually. Nice work on this!
I really like the counterpoint between the stringed instruments, it almost sounds "fugue-y." The build-up is really nice, too. Great to listen to, especially considering the sonic limitations of MIDI!
I like how the piece fades in with the cello, and then piano and the other instruments come in. I especially like how the piece keeps building and building, representing the protagonist progressively going through the different years and stages of their life.
I like the panning of the instruments across the different stereo channels.
This song feels very uplifting. I like how you put two stringed instruments on each speaker. Very clever
This is so pretty! It builds wonderfully, developing really nicely without losing the theme.
I see the sun rising on a beautiful warm summers day. Brings me the feeling of newness. Beautiful sound. Thanks for sharing.
Really pretty. I love the strings with piano.
There's good structure and inventiveness in this. I'll second @andrewjtaylor's advice, though I've gone a different way (though never picked up any serious film work).
Beautiful and meditative. I like how it builds and harmonizes.
I paid $1k (with student loans) for the Complete Composers Collection on DVD back in 2007/8. This version is a subscription at $29.99/mo. But even if you only did it for a month (Feb) it could be awesome. If you’re looking to get a sound out of Sibelius that says “film music” (when your composing already does), this is the way to go.
Siri hates me. Wrote that on the phone and the auto-correct has been abysmal. No “edit your comment” feature on the phone. 😀
Well done! I studied music composition at school and I’m not sure I would have been comfortable writing a non-sung piece for such a length without a lot of repeats or a more basic form (I've always been a melody guy, being a vocalist first). The development progresses nicely. Didn’t feel repetitive, or like you were aimlessly changing. One constructive criticism: Strings (or any sustained, non-percussive sound) are notoriously difficult to recreate in sampled form. When Inwas studying film composition, writing a 1 minute piece in the style of a certain genre of film each week, EastWest’s samples made my writing sound amazing. Check out the Composer’s Cloud subscription. I think you’ll be drooling when you hear it. Not sure if external samples work with Sibelius First, though. BTW: I used Sibelius. Use mostly Finale now (for Band). It is a painful experience most times but I’m familiar enough. http://www.soundsonline.com/composerc...
I adore the interviewing of the parts and this is truly an uplifting piece almost Debussy esque. Thanks you for bringing light into my morning 🙏🏻
Nice and warm, I could easily see this being the score to a heartwarming montage scene. Maybe of planning for a big event, or reminiscing about all the incredible events that occurred?
How warm, tender and lovely this sounds!
Very pretty. So easy on the ears. It's optimistic and enchanting. I like the interplay between strings and piano. Really nicely arranged.
Very cinematic indeed. A welcome start to the day here in Amsterdam. Thanks for posting.
Lovely composition. The warmth of the viola (cello?) fills the form in wonderfully here.
Amazing what emotions - and delicate interplay between them - you are able to evoke in such a small amount of time.
The piano is beautiful on this - I’m currently trying to learn, very slowly though haha hearing how great it can sounds in songs like this inspire me to keep going tho! The piano and string were very complementary, and one did not overpower the other which is great!
Quite lovely, I can totally see this as a tune appearing in a movie..... I think you know your market and strengths!
This has a nice crisp morning feel to it, even though I'm listening at close to midnight.
It very refreshing whilst soothing. Nice.
Very lovely! I love how it makes me feel!
Lovely melody, and well put together too. Probably my favourite of your pieces. Well "played" 😀
what an optimistic song! Well put together. Very delicate and nice interweaving of piano and strings. Great song for a Sunday morning.
