  • my own composition using Dimension Strings

    Hello, Yesterday I finished my composition using Vienna Dimension Strings, Vienna Suite and Cubase 7 ( composition written before in Sibelius 7.5, and transferred to Cubase later on) I would like to ask you what need to be made better, and what are my weak points. I want to learn something, so don't worry, criticize, but in constructive way, please :) this is the link: https://soundcloud.com/sebastian-zawadzki/permissions-to-stay-comp-sebastian-zawadzki thanks in advance!!

  • On first listen, it sounds harmonically interesting, in a good way, but it's like a series of unconnected ideas. I listen for that because I've received that criticism about my own compositions. I'd like to hear more form and development of ideas. I can't do it well, but the composers I like did.


  • Hi Sebastian,

    This is a surprising piece in many ways. I do like the harmony turns and unusual connections. It certainly has many good ideas and sounds very decent. You did a marvellous job with the articulations, the mixing and rendition.

    Thanks for sharing it!

  • Hey! Thank for all replies! It all means for me much. What do you think about reverb, isn't to much of it here? For my taste now I feel, that it's too much of it..

  • That is a matter of taste and sense of realism. What do you prefer?

    Personally, I like the close recording in a rather small ambience, but that doesn't fit fot all genres and styles, nor for all types of orchestras.
