    • Yearning for flute quartet
      I wouldn't call this too out there.  It's wonderful storytelling music.  You need Disney to do another "Fantasia" and animate this for one section.  :D  I particularly like all the "wind tones."  Now I'm a curious as to what you would add, in your more developed state, if you were to do something like this again.  Was there a particular technique you were itching to try?
    • The Secret Life of Puppets
      I'd be curious to know what all is on the BBC sound effect CDs.  I've never heard of them before.  You can just buy them and use them like other sound libraries?  Do I hear a Cimbalom?  :D  I wish there were a way you could mesh this with the film for us to see, but I suppose that would introduce copyright issues.  Excellent!
    • Keshar (using exotic scales)
      Wow, this is fantastic. The scales you use here are very interesting, and you use them well. It's clear that you've spent a lot of time studying these unusual scales to understand how they can function harmonically. It's interesting that you combine the jewish and gypsy scales in the first part. You don't use them in a way that is reminiscent of those cultures though, but instead you make them your own. I always like to hear elements from other cultures used in a western structure. The second part I especially enjoy, because I am really fascinated by bitonality, especially when it is applied to non-major/minor scales. I've been planning to write a piece that uses similar combinations, but with the church modes, although I have yet to actually work on it. Anyways, I really liked this. Always good to see successful writing with unusual colors.    
    • second & third
      Thank you for the feedback! I appreciate your time.
    • Fugues
      Thank you for your comment.  I tried to play all the fugues and the bars in left hand are possible to play :P Hmmm.Good idea. I'll try to write a fugue using other scales ;)
