RADIANT FLESH (take 2)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Do you feel it?


Here's a new version of RADIANT FLESH. I found a few things that needed improving in particular the string melody at about 1:40. You might feel this a bit more. And of course the video has a yet further improved version of this.

A few days ago my wonderful Uncle Alex passed away. An exceptional artist and a fine man. This song and the video below are dedicated to him.

Another lovely, expansive, cinematic composition by you! Nice job!

My only quibble is that I found myself wishing it were less sectional (i.e., not all based on the repeated two-bar loop)… it would be nice to work to a longer section at some point.

Nice melodies, and nice overall feel!

Evocative composition
Enjoyed it! Words like determination, promise and accomplishment come to mind. I liked the initial 'variation' which makes up the first minute, the most.

Majestic...
There is a bold feeling to this music, Charlie, something sort of regal and commanding. And you have presented it in a noble and engaging fashion without having to blast it out. It is made up of a series of 2 and 4 bar phrases that are, however, very predictable. I echo Clark's thought that it might be nice to elongate some of these phrases so that there is a bit more "flow" to the number and not so many half quarter/half cadences. That having been said, I am quite taken by the nobility of this music just as it is.

As
often happens it takes a while for me to hear a work of mine with fresh ears.
Having trained ears such as yours and Clark's echo similar thoughts helps me to "hear" this more clearly. I'm glad you enjoyed this Paul and I appreciate the sound suggestions which I will try out.
Cheers,
Charlie

Radiant indeed
It's kind of interesting that no matter what your music is set to describe has a core of dignity that gives the piece a backbone no matter the subject. Have you changed string packages? - the violins sound particularly clear and present.

There's also a poignancy to this piece which is lovely. Solemn, but not too much, graceful, and with an underlying hope and beauty. It works very well with the ice dance too BTW. I have to admit part of the time I was watching the brilliant skating and part I was trying to identify the arena :)

I'm sorry to hear about your uncle. I'm sure he would be very proud of this dedication.

Keep well my friend,
Doug

Same Strings
but I'm always tweaking trying to improve the sounds.

The skaters are brilliant. They happen to be my favorites and I've put music to several of the dances. For some reason my music often syncs up well with them. I don't know what arena but I do know that they were skating to good music by some guy named Bezit. Got to look him up.

Thanks Doug,
Charlie

Radiant
But the word cool comes to mind, especially when also watching the talented (=understatement) skaters. Other words that have already been mentioned also fit very well, like nobel, solemn, regal. All in all a very nice listen.

I am catching up on your latest pieces, seems I had forgotten to check the box for email notifications :-/

Thanks and take care,
Henke
