Can I just say how happy I am that something different is finally on this site?
Your work reminds me of W.G. Snuffy Walden’s music.

Amazing. Stay here forever.

Hey man… I love the classical music here… I love this piece except for the harpsichord. Kinda kept jarring me. I generally love disconjunctiveness but it still has to fit, you know?

Dang. i kinda regret my comment a bit.. listened to it again, the harpsichord/guitar DOES jar, but I think it may be simply the midi nature of it. I listened to it imagining it in a live performance… I can see what you are trying to do with it. The part I am talking about is the major scale run that keeps coming in that kind sounds like a Bach-like resolution… I really like the chords you play with the vibes.

It’s funny you should mention it, I wasn’t really completely happy with it myself either. I left it in because it reminded me of a cheesey bit from the old Disney Main Street Electric Parade sound track I remember from childhood. I think playing it once is enough and three or four times too much! Nice thing about Midi/Finale is that its easy enough to correct. This type of critism is really helpful and what I miss about composing within a group … don’t feel bad, it be helpful!

P.S. I’ve uploaded and replacement version with the correction.

man, you really have skillz when it comes to midi arrangement….seriously. i could never grasp notation, no matter how hard i tried….and i played piano/guitar since i was like 8 years old. i finally just gave up and starting improvising all my stuff and commiting it to memory. when electronic music on the pc was born and developed to a decent level is when i really was able to sit down and record all my compositions and everything…was a huge sigh of release for me…hehe. but seriously, your stuff is right up there with the midi gaming music greats!……*breaks out Super Nintendo Emulator and starts playing Demon Crest…*
