It was really cool how you got the complex syncopation of the eucalyptus clave sound in there, but I think it either needed a couple more elements or a better sample/recording of the didjerido! (i play didj and know it is a beast to record, so I understand, but we're being critical here :<) anyways, good job and good luck in RAC5
Yea, I had hell with the didj. It was so hard to figure out. Took me so long to figure out, plus it's my first time using Fruit Loops, so had to figure that out too xD. Yea, I probably could've used some more percussion. Pretty much limited when using instruments from australia.
I am super psyched to be able to participate in something like this. Although, I had to compensate for a crappy with mic with effects, the glissandi in the beginning surprisingly fit :D awesome job to everyone who participated! the ending song was pretty sweet in how some pieces across genre were meant for each other. You really can't predict how some of this stuff will come together.
And that's what makes it so awesome :D
Nice String and Reed Piece
I really like the clarinet leading on this piece. Now I can't tell if you doubled the melody on oboe too (crappy headphones), but the give and take between the lead and the bassoon backing was really good. The only criticism I have is that the the melody line didn't break once it started. So the natural breathing of the piece was lost until about 1:35 when it achieved a relaxed clarity. Otherwise, It was really enjoyable.
Hey, thanks for the review, and I'm glad you liked it. If you want to hear the 'finished' version of this song, check out my submission 'musingsthefirst.'
