    NEWNew External Competition

    Please consider reviewing as well as posting. Not only does it help balance the number of works on the site, but it helps you get involved! You may think you have nothing to add, but something as simple as "this was cool because of this part" or "something about 0:35 threw me off a bit" does help. Thanks!

    • Unfortunately their are no other colors to be had, unless you have some suggestions. And then they would have to be realized only in strings otherwise it's not a string piece. Haha! I have never seen a ruby and wished it was an emerald. But I will say that there are real limitations to sampled strings and I would give anything to have this played with period instruments. I played a Handel Concerto note for note with these instruments and viola! It didn't sound that good! But if you want to offer some back seat driving (I do it all the time) I would be happy to hear it.
    • Hello Guys, I saw a documentary film about black holes. In that film, an imaginary vehicle traveled to the center of a black hole.  It was very interesting for me, and I decided to, I'm gonna make a track about this journey.  The music devided into 5 parts:  Way to the Darkness - Intro  Accretion Disc - from 1:30 Through the Event Horizon - from 2:30 Spaghettification - Spaghettification from 2:45 Way to the Center - 3:44  
    • 4) The Magic Songs.mp3 Magic Songs.pdf This post is about the fourth movement of my piece called “Quiquern”. To read about the first few movements and about this piece in general, go here.   Fragment 4: The Magic Songs Famished and delirious, Young Kotuko and the girl set out alone into the blizzard to find food for the starving village. As the dark and the cold and hunger devour them, the two children rave and hallucinate, unhinging themselves from the realm of men and into the realm of gods. As they descend, they sing songs of magic, songs buried deep in their memories, in their blood. Their voices rise and fall with the frozen wind. And through this silence and through this waste, where the sudden lights flapped and went out again, the sleigh and the two that pulled it crawled like things in a nightmare — a nightmare of the end of the world at the end of the world. The girl was always very silent, but Kotuko muttered to himself and broke out into songs he had learned in the Singing–House — summer songs, and reindeer and salmon songs — all horribly out of place at that season. He would declare that he heard the tornaq growling to him, and would run wildly up a hummock, tossing his arms and speaking in loud, threatening tones. To tell the truth, Kotuko was very nearly crazy for the time being; but the girl was sure that he was being guided by his guardian spirit, and that everything would come right. She was not surprised, therefore, when at the end of the fourth march Kotuko, whose eyes were burning like fire-balls in his head, told her that his tornaq was following them across the snow in the shape of a two-headed dog. The girl looked where Kotuko pointed, and something seemed to slip into a ravine. It was certainly not human, but everybody knew that the tornait preferred to appear in the shape of bear and seal, and such like. It might have been the Ten-legged White Spirit–Bear himself, or it might have been anything, for Kotuko and the girl were so starved that their eyes were untrustworthy. They had trapped nothing, and seen no trace of game since they had left the village; their food would not hold out for another week, and there was a gale coming. A Polar storm can blow for ten days without a break, and all that while it is certain death to be abroad. Kotuko laid up a snow-house large enough to take in the hand-sleigh (never be separated from your meat), and while he was shaping the last irregular block of ice that makes the key-stone of the roof, he saw a Thing looking at him from a little cliff of ice half a mile away. The air was hazy, and the Thing seemed to be forty feet long and ten feet high, with twenty feet of tail and a shape that quivered all along the outlines. The girl saw it too, but instead of crying aloud with terror, said quietly, “That is Quiquern. What comes after?”
    • Interesting.  I like it.  might even love it.  I  think I want it to have the full orchestra and not just strings but I get why you did that.  I would love to hear this with all the different colors though.  Yeah, I might love this...
