Description
This is a repost of the Bach Sinfonia. I've ironed out a few of the rough spots and I think it sounds a bit smoother than the original post. This remains one of my favorite pieces by Bach - I only hope I did it justice.

terrific
I can hear this piece over and over and over. Love your rendition of it.

It my opinion Bach must be celebrated highly in heaven! He gets melody
from a vey high and heavenly place.

Thanks for posting this gem again. Love it!

One other fine point
You really get a pleasant-to-hear sound out of that keyboard. Wow, love
the texture you get out of the M-audo 88 es. Very impressive to me!

Thanks for the positive feedback. And I'm fairly impressed with the 88es
myself - it definitely feels better to me than the 49e did.

Get Bach!
Very lush. Maybe I should buy JamPack 4 (I assume you meant that
instead of MacJams 4). Some nice attacks and swells in there. Not bad
for synthetic catgut....although there is nothing like the real deal, live
in concert. So, was this all penciled in manually, or did you start by
entering notes with a MIDI keyboard?

Oops. I did mean JamPack.

I didn't pencil in notes - can you imagine doing that to all those 16ths?? Used
the M-Audio 88es keyboard and recorded each track in sections of about 10
measures at a time so I could tweak as I went along. This method seemed to
work pretty well on this piece.

Pleasant...lovely
Very fine sound here!
In my opinion electronic/computer music stands on it's own
being a valid art sound like a limb in the big tree
of the music world, not comparing to
acoustic music or live concerts, another branch (even if
historically original).

Pleasant...lovely
Here here! And you've proved that point time and again with your recreations
of classical pieces using electronic sound. You've done some amazing things.
Thanks for the comments!

One of my favorites, too
Such lovely restraint here in terms of tempo and color. This is really an
excellent piece of work. When I was a teenager I listened to the
"Switched-On Bach" version of this, over and over. So this makes me
feel young. Thanks for posting it.

Superb
I thought your other track was superb. So delicate. A master's master.
So much to learn and grow from in these pieces. Thank you for
perfecting this. (Too bad you can't put a slight ritardando at the very end,
one of the limitations of GB.) Well done.

Bachanalia
I think you did very well with this... Bach's stuff is so amazing, it is fun
to work with. I'm impressed that you did all this by playing from
scores. The only critiques I have are that (1) it seemed to be played a
little slowly at first, but as it went along, I settled into this slightly
relaxed pace and it felt just fine, and that the ending was a bit abrupt,
proably should have held the last note another measure, and maybe
diddled with the volume on the last note to sound like a violinist would
play it, start medium loud, soften, then the very end ramp up loud as
they drag the bow across the end. Just a thought. Otherwise, JP4
really gives this a nice realistic sounding feel. Enjoyed hearing this
again!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Nice Job
A very nice job! I am much more used to hearing the solo violin and solo
guitar (transcribed from the lute suite) version of this, and it's nice to hear
the orchestrated version again. It's very close to being my all-time
favorite Bach composition. Any chance of putting just a small rit. in at the
end? Or do you prefer not using rit.s in Bach?

All in all, very well done.

Brilliant !!!!
You got it !!

I would not like to try and follow that one .

Its great , you did a fine job on a complex piece of music.
I am a tad bit jealous I must admit , but you put a smile on my face all the same.
And by the way you did it justice , Bach would be delighted with you.

Total amateur but I love what I do. I've been more focused on the writing and the painting lately so I tend to pop in and out of macjams at random, infrequent intervals. But I love catching up on my favorite artists and discovering some new ones al... [see more]
