  2. Thanks! Yeah, I enjoy Hisaishi's music too, his tunes are so catchy! Yep, I get that criticism a lot lately. I'm working on it, slooowly 🙂 Sure, that'd be great, actually (if you can decipher my messy score 😅)

  3. That was certainly so much cooler than I was expecting. Your singing added so much to this!! Really, I feel what you say is “sub-par” really adds to the atmosphere of this creature being alien, with some of the off-pitch notes and strange “lyrics.” I half expected a THX glissando from the orchestra at some points lol. You should find a way to include that in your score/writing, as it adds to the uniue atmosphere you’ve created a lot. Keep writing, friend!

  4. Your flute and oboe duet sounds great. I've used woodwind duos before too, but usually of these types: Flute + Bassoon -> Sometimes if I'm trying to evoke a pastoral scene in a chamber ensemble, I will use the combination of the mellow tone of the flute and the warmth of the bassoon Flute + Clarinet -> These 2 are most similar in dynamic terms, although a clarinet can get up to forte in the low register, which the flute can't(I've heard from several sources that the loudest possible dynamic for the low register which goes up to A4, is mezzo-forte and that if there is forte

  5. I really liked this piece, it sounds great! Wonderful, expressive melody, and I really like your mode mixtures in the harmony. The chromatic descent in bar 25 gave me major Joe Hisaishi vibes (Hisaishi is one of my favourite composers). Loving the unapologetic key change as well 😋 My only criticism is that it's a little too repetitive – both in terms of the melody and the accompaniment, but especially the latter. I think it would be an improvement if you changed the melody a little at times, and tried varying the rhythm of the accompaniment. Also, perhaps this is just my preference,

  6. Thank you all for your comments! I'm glad that you enjoyed the piece. I'm especially glad that PaperComposer mentioned mm. 72-76 in the third movement, since this was a bit that I was especially hesitant about and wasn't sure it would work. I haven't written any strict fugues for a long time, though I use fugal passages sometimes. I am working on some more flute/oboe duets in this style, though.

  7. Wow! What a unique story which is also very culturally appropriate! Your singing is literally out of this world in this one! You are very convincing as an alien I must say. I hope you don't get embarrassed later and take this down - I'm still wanting to listen to that "Pure Imagination" remix you did. Great concept and idea to make this a song - very harmonically rich too!

  8. Wow! I really like this new version and tempo much better than the original! The middle section of the piece is much better now as well as you replaced what you had with a nice legato contrast with oboe punctuating certain beats - it works very well! Great job!
