Description
I have used various orchestral instruments to enhance the sound of some of the songs I have posted here, but for this one I wanted the orchestra to take on the full responsibility of carrying the piece. As it turned out, the process of composing and arranging this piece was particularly enjoyable.

One of my all time faves!
Glad you brought this over to MJ! Impeccable orchestration, mixing. A very emotional piece beautifully produced and played (as always!). You make Miroslav sound incredibly rich and full...the moving Horns behind the swelling strings is gorgeous...and the english horn at the end to bring it back down to earth...nice.

Thanks so much...
How great to read this, Graham. I'm pleased you enjoyed this piece. Miroslav is an amazing tool - we are all very fortunate to have at our disposal these packages that allow such expression. And people like you who listen and leave such a nice comment make the process of composing with such tools that much more gratifying. Thank you very much, Graham.

Who needs lyrics!
Your description is how it is - I felt emotions and had a feeling of change when I listened to this Patrick (and not a B3 in sight!).

Astounding how you get orchstral things happening - I wouldn't even know where to start.

Lovely music Patrick.

Thank you, Neil
Hey, Neil, I'm pleased this got through to you. As you know, it is very gratifying for the composer when someone feels emotions and emotional shifts when listening to his music.

By the way, I think if you had orchestral software and some time, you'd be surprised by what you were able to come up with.

This is simply excellent in every way. The orchestration , the structure of the piece and the melodies are all beautiful. The thing that struck me funny though is that I have a piece sitting in GB right now that uses harp and English horn. It was planned as the next version of my string piece I posted here recently. The English horn has such a nice timbre.

This piece deserves a lot of attention which I hope it gets! Great job!

peace,

The double-reeds...
I am an avowed over-user of the English horn. I find its sound ideal for expressive melodies.

I have been enjoying listening to your music as well. The second version of your string piece has strengths you'll be building on. I look forward to hearing more from you.

Through The Eyes of an Eagle
We are grounded in our own humanity until the spirit takes flight. Then, and only then, can we witness our existence through the eyes of an eagle.

This piece serves well as an aural exhibition of that perspective, Patrick. Majestic and inspiring... and masterfully done.

Once again... Major Motion Picture soundtrack material. ;)

Oh Patrick - what a stupendous masterpiece! I can only dream of writing like this - I am your humble servant! Your orchestration here is so movingly perfect, what finesse you have. If I move next door to you, will you teach me how to do this? (I'll wash your dishes every day for life as incentive!) (OK, OK - here's my life savings instead!) I'm in awe and just want to say this is about the finest orchestral piece I've heard on MJ or anywhere in the universe. congratulations my friend!

You can only dream of writing like this? Such a wonderful thing to say, but I must respectfully disagree. You are a vastly talented player and composer. You can write anything you want to write. What you've posted here is of very high quality, and is rightly widely appreciated by the community.

Thank you for your very touching comments, Karen. From you they mean very much to me.

Aren't our tools great these days? I'm so glad you like how this turned out. This took a great deal of work, but every minute of it was enjoyable (and frustrating at times, too, but that's what we sign up for writing music). It pleases me greatly that you hear depth in the sound. It always feels great when the top keyboard guys leave a comment. Thanks so much, John.

This is magnificent and what is very impressive is that you got HIGH quality sampled orchestration-al sounds. So deep in richness, depth.

Ed Hannifin said 3516 days ago (April 10th, 2008)
One of my criteria...
...for enjoying certain sorts of classical/cinematic work is if, listening to it, the melody starts evoking words, or an almost-sense that words COULD come out of the melody lines if I just listened harder, or again...

This has that, Patrick. And although I can appreciate music that breaks all rules, real and implied, my sense of song tends to stay simple: a lyric set to a melody. When there isn't a lyric, if the melody seems to EVOKE a lyrical sense, I always feel like the piece is in the right territory.

After THAT, people like you, who can do the harmony and orchestration and all that, are able to add icing to the cake, and believe me, I like icing...

What I'm saying here is that icing's better if the cake is good, and what I appreciate here is that you've got that basic cake nailed down...

Ed

I'm having this troubling image now, of someone nailing down a cake... Oh well...

Doug Somers said 3516 days ago (April 10th, 2008)
Patrick this is a gift to all of us
This is a gorgeous work to be sure. The rising and falling melody of the strings in the opening seem to mirror the eye tracing the rising of rocky peak followed by valley that climbs to the next peak. I also had the sense of the metaphor of the mountainous skyline as a series of trials and triumphs through a lifetime. The oboe and later the violins seem to soar over this landscape, introducing for me a sense of perspective from a great height but also seeing what is true across time. With the entry of the piano I sense the conversion of what is seen in broad perspective into wisdom, into realising the power and beauty of the landscape and of life generally which grows into a majestic and dignified celebration, becoming a joyous expression as the orchestration builds. The conclusion carried by the oboe is a really nice touch, which to me brings the image back down to the personal - we have been here all along, and some small part of us is comforted by having what it always knew to be true be now understood by our whole being.

Thank you again for your note about offering this work into the Hero's Journey Project. Your notes sum it up so very well: "it%u2019s all a matter of shifting perspective until we can clearly see what has always been right in front of us". Right on.

Keep well,
Doug

futzpucker said 3515 days ago (April 10th, 2008)
Wow...
Doug, I am so moved by what you wrote that I cannot find the words. It's the kind of reaction that every composer would love to hear. When music creates images, evokes thoughts and emotions, there is no greater gift to the composer. It implies a deep listen, and a deep level of communication, which is what we all strive for. I can't thank you enough for making this happen for me, Doug.

I should add that I am honored to have this song be part of something I consider a very worthwhile - your Hero's Journey Project. It's a lofty and ambitious undertaking. I am glad you had the vision for it, and I'm glad you allowed me to participate. Thank you so much, Doug.

You evoke
a sense of graceful movement. Very fluid, yet a sense of purposefulness, too. I really like your interplay between the string ensemble and the solo wind instruments. I also really like the way you use the piano, here. Very much the harmonic master, but never overtaking the melody. I'd go on, but it seems that other commenters have said what I want to say so much better. Lovely.

I did make an effort to give time to the winds without the strings. This is still very challenging to me, and I spent a great deal of time trying to learn how to do this while in the composing phase of this piece. It's nice to have that noticed. Especially by the music teacher. Thank you so much, Kristine.

Scott Carmichael said 3513 days ago (April 12th, 2008)
Impressive Patrick
Not only the composition... which is heartbreaking... but technically, this sounds more like a real orchestra than any software module I've heard... there are all the subtle dynamics.... the swelling and shifting inside the composition... may we ask how you did that... are you manipulating volumes all through... is this achieved by touch sensitivity... or are the samples just that real?

futzpucker said 3512 days ago (April 14th, 2008)
Thank you, Scott
I am glad to see you have listened to this, Scott. I think I know what you mean by heartbreaking, and I'm grateful to hear the song got in.

The dynamics, the swelling and shifting you're hearing, were done either with a foot pedal or a fader on my master keyboard while I played the parts, or by the fader as an overdub.

I've been including string parts in my music for a long time, and it wasn't that many years ago when I realized that by not playing string parts dynamically I was able single-handedly to kill the sound of a decent string section. When I realized that string players don't stay at the same dynamic level over the course of a phrase (or even a note, if it's long enough). I was stunned at the time, because it seemed so obvious once I discovered it for myself. Velocity enters into it, too, if that's what you mean by touch sensitivity (no aftertouch here). That's it. The dynamics are just played in, or overdubbed.

a few days and you try to slip this by me huh! Well I'm already familiar with this piece but it is still just as amazing as the first time I heard it. I have to agree with Scott on the "real orchestra" comment. The amazing thing to me is.......I know how meticulous you are and have to be to get this wonderful, realistic sound.....but at the same time, capture all the emotions you sought in this beautiful melody and arrangement. Hey but wait! Did you say "darkness"? Now you know who to call if you need that Boris Karloff touch ha!

I am quite grateful for your enthusiasm and ratings as well, but nothing compares to this act of playing the song for your mother. Please send her my love.

Thank you so much for telling me about your mother. Blessings to you both.
