    • The Rambling Strings
      Thanks for the feedback! I use MuseScore so the playback and sampling options are pretty limited unfortunately which might contribute to how sudden the change to piano in the intro sounds but it could probably still use some work regardless.
    • Four naïve dances.
      Thank you very much for listening and for your comments. As of now I haven't written a score, but I am going to do it based on the MIDI sequences, it will be a good exercise as it will require making it more realistically playable (the issue is not so much individual playability, but I have often written several voices on the same part with little caution). The names of the movements refer to hazardous asteroids which may crash on earth one day, and they were named by there discoverers after ancient deities (much like the planets). I've called these "Danses sur l'échelle de Palerme", which is a play on word with "ladder" and "scale", the Palermo scale being the standard for evaluating the likelihood of a large asteroid falling on earth. So these dances would be meant to appease the hazardous deities.
    • Four naïve dances.
      First thing's first: Do you happen to have a score? It would be more constructive (and easier) for reviewers to follow along and give you specific feedback if you provide a score.    Since my audio player is wonky, and I don't have a score to look at, I'll just give you some of my general thoughts. The Stravinsky influence definitely shows in your dances, with those staccato rhythmic patterns and off kilter harmonies. My complaint would be each movement is too homogenous in content and texture, so it gets a little tiring to the ear. The melodic ideas could definitely be developed more, and each dance could be given a more unique, flavorful character (By the way, what do the titles of the each dance movement mean?). 
    • Inferno Suite in C# minor, for Orchestra
      I found this piece most impressive. It is delicate and you really achieve to take the most of each idea, moves feel centered on one impression developed at length, which surely fits a thematic suite. My favorite moves were Limbo, Lust - to me it really evoked its’ theme in an subtle, unexpected and truly damned way. I liked Fraud especially because it seemed more wandering and less tied to a pattern, but really engaged and far reaching, in a way akin to Grieg’s Aases Death which it made me think of at a particular moment. I felt that you sometime overused some themes in Avarice and Anger, maybe not the most interesting ones unfortunately, but this may be part of my personal cautiousness regarding dramatic themes. Overall a remarkable piece.
