Description
A little something to post and celebrate my 3rd anniversary here at MacJams! Recorded in Logic Pro using Jampack 4 and MiroSlav Philhamonik. Mostly orchestral with some added electronic textures. There's no real story behind this piece, just relearning the craft of composition one step at a time.

Thanks for Listening
The Choir is purposely electonified using some filters and flanging instead of just having the realistic voice sound.

Shades of...
Vangelis, Tomita, and classical elements to boot. Holst influences? Dynamic and punchy. Smooth and flowing. Cool and hot. Well done!
Bubowski said 3982 days ago (December 20th, 2007)
Holst...
Yes there is a little of him thrown in there. Mostly the orchestration technique for the strings in the third Fragment...reminiscent of Jupiter, but completely different harmonic structure. THanks for listening...you put me in good company!

Magnificent
Elements of Ravel in there at times, hints of Mahler at the beginning, to my untrained ear. I found myself stopping and staring off into space here and there, hypnotized by the sounds. I would have to second Alimar's Vangelis reference, too - a plus in my book! Phenomenal piece. Very nicely done, and a fitting tribute to your anniversary. Nice work. Peace.

Can't speak...
for the Mahler reference, never been much of a fan. I did notice a couple of touches of the impressionists I guess. There's some pan-diatonicism and pentatonic stuff floating around in there. Thanks for the listen and comments. I'll drop by to listen to your stuff...haven't had a chance to yet.

Excellent!!
I definitely hear the Holst/Jupiter influence. How cool is that?!

What a tremendous composition for your 3-year mark here on MacJams.
I love the unexpected chord progressions here and there, and the addition of the electronic elements.

You have a wonderful talent for composition!
Glad you are here to share it ! :)

thank you

Thanks!
I always appreciate a listen from one of the MacJams masters. That string-thing in the opening of Jupiter has always been pretty cool to me, so I just wanted to see how it was constructed. It was fun to merge that into the sort of minimalist pattern that follows with the solo instruments floating around on top.

I'm glad you enjoyed listening to it. Thanks again.

And your MacBook...
...handled all of this? That's an impressive recommendation for the MacBook...

I'm struck, as I've said before, by the clear, high quality instruments used here, and this morning I am listening on good headphones, and hearing the tremendous use of space...The panning, whatever reverb you're using, it's all adding up to a sense of instruments in acoustic space...Not 'flat' or 'canned'....

That's just the recording part...

I'm not well versed in classical music, but I love the transitions from one sort of 'movement' to another...All sorts of different characters...There's a spot in there where whatever instrument (woodwind?) is playing is just slightly shadowed by some of that choral singing, and that sounds pretty neat... You manage to blend in the very natural sounds of most of the instruments with the artificial sounds very well, and the tympani fit rather than just coming in to be bombastic and dramatic...

And yet, one misses the Mellotron...

MacBook
I'm amazed at what this puppy can handle. This piece using 27 tracks, all software instruments, in Logic 8. I haven't frozen any tracks, so they are all processed live.

I was able to do things like have all the ensemble strings on one track, then use keyboard panning on the EXS sampler to spread the strings out. Also, all the Miroslav sounds are coming from 1 instance of the plug-in which helps (I'm using 15 of the available 16 channels).

The sense of space you hear is really mostly balancing the levels and positions of the instruments and then running them through the built in convolution reverb in Logic Studio (Space Designer)...one of the main reasons I upgraded. It's so great having these tools now, I'm able to try out new ideas and hear what they sound like right away.

ANYWAY...Musically, there's a bunch of little themes and ideas floating around, roughly slung into three mini-movements. The influences here are kind of Stravinsky, Holst, minimalism, Debussy, and myself (I guess). Glad you liked it...I actually was thinking of replacing the choral voices with Mellotron...we shall see :-).

Beautiful Graham
Happy 3rd year... great way to kick off the start of your 4th... and Logic 8 is really something... I just upgraded... it was worth it just for the sound library... the samples are so superior to the stuff that came with 7... I'm finding the layout to be much more intuitive... I have to say... I was wondering how much better all thesenew sounds would come across in a composition... and you have shown me hear... your composition is rich & beautiful...and Logic 8 let you produce it unhindered by substandard sounds... i wish I would have had this when I produced "Emanuel" it would have been much more convincing

excellent

Bubowski said 3981 days ago (December 21st, 2007)
Logic and Writing
I noticed as well as the better sound (and Space Designer), how much more fluid it is working with the new interface. I feel like it's a real composition tool and not just a way to hear something realized.

I have to say that the solo strings and all the woodwinds actually come from Miroslav Philharmonik, which is also really intuitive and sounds great for the price (my upper limit for an orchestral library).

Glad you liked the piece. Now that it's done, on to the next! Actually I think I'm going full analog for next two piece, I want to write some music for concert band for two local schools. I will, however post the sketches here first for opinions.

This is...
...fantastic.

Hearing a bit of Copland in there, too. But influences doesn't mean plaguerism. This is you all the way. Very unique.

I love the way you threw the original choral theme into the next section (with the staccato) as a little reminder/wave goodbye.

Really, really impressive. Love it.

drakonis said 3981 days ago (December 21st, 2007)
About time! :)
-Light, gorgeous touches of Stravinski-style orchestration and syncopation, a bit of Holst (I hear Jupiter, as well as a little "Suite for band"), and unfortunately a little too much Debussy-impressionistic neo-classical harmony for my traditional ears, but I really liked your melding of synthy "Tangerine Dream"-like elements into the orchestral writing, expertly done. The effects (flanging the chorus and altering hi-pass filters) was organic/fluid, quite mesmerizing.

-Miroslav sounds wonderful here, I must recover after just buying a new Mac Pro, so I can get that next year. So, does Miroslav plug into GarageBand 4 easily? Does it work in Leopard?

-Overall, this is a big ambitious composition, I'm quite awestruck by your work here. Excellent writing & tweaking.

-Congratulations on the 3 year MacJammiversary, I enjoy your presence immensely, and look forward to more goodies from you. Sounds like you and I both are headed down the path to score some music for performance... I look forward to hearing your progress and helping if I can.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Orchestration...
was always my strong suit in college. As you can hear I'm definitely influenced by that Stravinsky/Post-Impressionist mode where there are a lot of solo instruments working together. I do LOVE the Copland/American Symphonic style, just haven't figured out how to get there (yet).

I imagine there would be no problem with Miroslav in GB4 (I'm using the new Logic, and never looking back - love it), dunno about Leopard as I am sticking to Tiger on all my computers. However, you MacPro should totally Rock with this stuff...even on my MacBook, I still had processor headroom with 27 tracks going - and no track freezes.

There was a bit of tweaking (especially with effects on the Choir and Electronic Percussion tracks) but there was pretty heavy adjustments on volume curves and note velocities on all the tracks to get them to balance properly. Even some judicious adjustments to the tempo track.

Thanks for the listen Eduard, I look forward to hearing about your live performance experiences. I used to write for Symphonic Band in college, so I'm returning to my roots. Mainly, it's a chance to hear my kids play something I wrote :-).

thetiler said 3981 days ago (December 21st, 2007)
Enjoyed
the multi-facetted music that you provide here,. Nice contrast between the midi instruments and the choir. Then the cool pop percussion, like the choir especially, you really seemed inspired when you work off the choir. Nice John Tesh type feel midway, adding the avant gar-de really strengthens the tune quite a bit.

Terrific

Bubowski said 3981 days ago (December 21st, 2007)
Choir
Hey Bill, thanks for the comments. It's interesting that you feel that the choral section feels most inspired to you, that's really the only section that was fully played in by hand on a keyboard. The rest of the composition is a combination of keyboarding, score editing and and midi event editing.

As my keyboard skills get a bit better (and now I that I have decent monitoring at both the computer and the keyboard), I'll be playing in more live. One of the interesting differences is that when working in "scoring" mode I think more vertically across all instruments, and when playing I think more linearly. Guess it makes sense.

Oh yeah, did you really mean John Tesh? Oh well, back to the drawing board! (actually I like some of his early stuff like the Tour de France music he wrote).

Beautiful contrast of light and dark; classical and modern; drama and tension. This blows my mind, the kind of complexity you always achieve... but moreso because of how much 'air' still flows through your pieces. I think you and I both like the classical/electronic juxtaposition. Fantastic production, as always. Your attention to detail is so very evident here. I'm jealous of your gear! :-) Happy 3 years, Graham. Keep up the amazing work. I'm a fan.

Don't be jealous!
When I hear the results you get, I'm jealous of your talent :). Glad you enjoyed the piece...sometimes I wonder if it gets too complex. I did a lot of weeding to get the texture to work better, a couple of the ensemble string sections got way to thick, so I'm glad to know that I was able to thin out the texture enough so people could hear what was going on.

Looking forward to hearing your next piece...and get _ndersore going...we need some more ambient madness!

Sweeeet...

.. all extremely well done. My favourite element is how well you mix classical with modern, bringing in synths .. then classical retaliates with some awesome strings, pizz and oboe?/clarinets (I guess) and timpani .. inspires me to try out this JP4.

Intricate .. and mind-blowing arrangement to my ears.

Classical *intro*
After you introduce that dance beat it's not really classical anymore, right? It has something of a film score.

But I like the fragmentary, yet cohesive, feel of this piece.

Relearning composition? Maybe I'm mellowing, but these days I try just to have fun putting something together and if the listener shares in the joy I think I've done a good job.

From that point of view you're doing quite all right: this is a joyous piece and the listener can not help but riding that wave all the way to the end.

Bubowski said 3976 days ago (December 26th, 2007)
What is Classical?
Well, it isn't Classical in the "Classical" sense...hehe. But I guess we should have a genre that basically is "Orchestral." Dunno, there is definitely music out there defined in the American sense as classical that uses electro and acoustic music together. That's what I hate about genres anyway, too confining.

I know "relearning" composition may sound strange, but It's kind of like working to get you chops back after a long time away from playing. I'm not that hot of an instrumentalist, so I try to improve musically where I can. But just because I'm relearning, doesn't mean I can't have fun :).

Glad you liked the piece. BTW...really like Vermillion Cliffs, very evocative.

Violins...
It's funny because my whole performance background is pretty much Concert Band music and electronic. But I find I really like writing for strings now. Having the Miroslav Philharmonik helps with the writing as it has some pretty nice, expressive, solo and ensemble strings, and doesn't cost too much money. JP4 also has nice ensemble strings as well...and they blend nicely.

Next piece I'm thinking, maybe no MIDI at all and recording everything live using a couple of different guitars and lots of processing...who knows? More work for the Brain and the Hands together.

Just a minute into and I can tell you've recorded a labor of love. As well , that you've studied some of the theory behind making such great orchestrations. Nice blending of the new and the old. The electronica parts did not overwhelm the voices and each played well off the orchestral parts. The chasing lead parts were outstanding. delicate and delightful.

Glad you came by for a listen, I always appreciate you comments and opinion. Orchestration classes in college helped, but I think I've forgotten a whole lot. It's always a challenge making MIDI sound like you imagine in your head when it comes to orchestrating, but the tools are making it easier all the time. Thanks for listening!

Your piece is impressive and a great example of what is possible with computer-based recording. When people make comparisons to Holst, Copland, Vangelis you must be at the top of your game. I'm downloading this track as some wonderful listening music to keep handy on my desktop for inspiration. Thanks for sharing it with us, and I look forward to listening to the rest of your collection.

Just lots-
to listen to. You cover so many bases here. I like the solo instrumental lines following the tutti string/vocal sections. On my PowerBook speakers, it sounds quite natural. (When I put on the headphones, it becomes more clear that the instruments are MIDI, but very excellent MIDI). Yup, there's the 'Jupiter' reference - I hear it. I like Feter's reference to a 'celebration piece'. That's what it sounds like to me, too.

Amazing results
Graham, I am very pleased by the results you've gotten using the Miroslav. It is a great plugin, but it needs to be used correctly to reach its potential. You seem to have a very comfortable feel in doing so. The use of the instruments was very natural, the dynamics were powerful, and the mix was just right.

I am very impressed by your pulling off such an ambitious piece with the grace and finesse shown here. This was quite a project. You've succeeded, and taught us a great deal about midi arranging in the process. Congratulations. Really great work...

It's great to hear someone use this package correctly.

Anyway, glad you enjoyed the track and thanks for taking the time to comment.

Interesting comments about the rendering. Yea, the choir sounds different, but I think that's your intent. No midi sounds heard here, and I have 7.1 speakers. Good, high end rendering. The music is very cool...lots and lots things to hear and process from the classical to the electro and so on. They all work well together. Excellent orchestration--kept my interest all the way through. I don't think you need to 're-learn' anything. Most enjoyed!

I like your use of percussion in this, and the sudden appearance of an electronic riff could seem strange, but you managed to pull it off. Great idea putting flange on the choir - I've often been tempted to add some choir, but I don't like the obviously synthesised tone. Messing it up really works well. Really enjoyed it.

Wow!
Wow, happy 3rd, Graham! You're a big part of this community.

I'm not generally a fan of sampled choirs (they just don't ever sound as realistic as I would wish, I guess), so I'm glad that you processed the sound a bit to make the sound more obviously machine-made. I think it works really well in this piece.

I like the way you transition from that spacey, ethereal intro to the more active, busy section. Lots of very cool sounds here. I find I must listen very intently, because I might miss something if I don't!

I like your use of unconventional harmony. It sounds original but still accessible to most people's ears (he said, not knowing a thing about what most people's ears like!).

I was going to write that this would make a great soundtrack, when I noticed the category... Good choice, therefore!

Wonderful music.

Epic and expansive
Lovely piece. I don't know a lot about classical music other than some stuff I really like and other stuff just kind of goes in one ear and out the other. Anyway, this stuff I like. Love the slight electronic flourishes that you've thrown in and the string section sounds are amazing. Not sure if you are familiar with the electronic artist BT, but on his latest concept album "This Binary Universe" he has some classical inspired sections. I don' think they are as complex as your stuff, but this reminded me of him a tad bit. I can't imagine the amount of time it took to compose, mix master etc. I have a hard enough time with 4 or 5 instruments on a 3 minute song. Kudos.
