Intelligent level-headedness
will prevail over superstition. If only the world was as calm and grateful for everything as this composition suggests. You do things on a most grand scheme and you produce masterpieces. Thank you.

The future…
A little discord is fine to shake things up but we have to hope for one with at least some kind of harmony.
Thanks Maurice, and the best to you and yours as well my friend,

Filled with elegance.
A gentle and peaceful piece with a fine uplifting mood in spite of the sedate pace. Subtle composition uses counterpoint to great effect. I'd love to hear this played by one of those big Hollywood orchestras!

Each day we are called to make choices in favour of life or destruction.
Your living and warming music is the best guide to make the appropriate choice. :)

Lovely orchestration. Not so much doom-laden, but pastoral and full of hope. I guess that was the idea. Whatever, it's really nicely put together.

Just looking at your picture Charlie
and we should know that you couldn't foist a depressing, doom-filled, cacophony of sounds on us. Nice take on the theme: obviously you believe we'll all see the sun rise on the 22nd.
Have a terrific holiday and a prolific new year.

Doug Somers said 1766 days ago (December 20th, 2012)
Life!
Cool start - with a voice over it could make for an engaging track for a commercial about doing what's important in life. Maybe that's why your composition is so effective in communicating the facets of life that make it so interesting. The strings over the slow arpeggio is a light and sweeping touch, and the build up of the string melody up to 2:05 is lovely.

The string figure at 2:38 on is also especially pretty. I think what captures me about these passages is how you have them seem to reach for the light with an ascending and very pure quality. I realise that the many parts that support the strings also contain many great artistic choices, yet they seem to be in a supporting role to let the strings really sing out and soar. The ending phrase reminds me of Copland.

This piece is a musical affirmation, and I can imagine that anyone who hears it cannot be in some way uplifted by the experience.

Bravo Charlie. Take a bow sir!
Doug

I
loved your submission into this Doom project Doug and though this is quite different it's almost a Ying and Yang thing happening and you know we do need Ying and Yang.

Thank for your always careful listens and kind comments and encouragement.
Have a great holiday and New Year my friend ,

Symphony101 said 1766 days ago (December 20th, 2012)
I started
listening to the first notes before reading your comment. First thing that came to my mind was the optimistic tone of the music, which goes so nicely with the subject chosen - Life.

It carries the feelings very well, beautiful work Charles.

Like Smokey said
this has a nice Winter Solstice feel. More celebrating the return of the light than the deeper darkness. Well orchestrated. Cool track.

paul f. page said 1764 days ago (December 22nd, 2012)
Positive...and Contemporary
I never listen to the doom-sayers. Nevertheless, this track makes an unequivocally positive statement about the ongoing trajectory of life. Doug (above) has put his finger on the "ascending light" elements in this number, especially as the strings soar above all the rest. Very nice post.
