    Different church organ music

    Two new pieces for review..

    The first, Frosty Apartment, is going on a compilation CD for open genres in Sweden. It has generated a lot of positive feedback. The second, Upchurch, is one I think may be interesting for this specific forum, as I use a reversed church organ throughout the piece.

    Cheers!

    Not to my taste, sorry.
    Cheers MIKE.

    That was quick.. I know it's a bit of a stretch to post IDM on a (primarily) organ forum, heh. But I got a lot of courage I guess

    Or a death wish?

    Cheers MIKE.

    Hi Strunch,

    Kudos to your forays with organ music. I wish you continued success with your composing for organ.

    Cheers,

    I don't know if this is of substance or not, but what is a "reversed" organ?

    Far more substance.. Reversed merely means that I played a bit of church organ in FL Studio with NI colussus VST, sampled it, and reversed the whole thing. That's the background of Upchurch.

    If you want a more substantial opinion then I find it a dreadful noise which offends my ears.

    The death wish comment was intended as a humorous response to your courage comment.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Well Mike, it can't all be roses and rainbows, and if you find that to be noise, then you have yet to hear noise. There's actually a genre called Noise.. I'm in the very mild end of the IDM scale. Leaning up against ninja cuts and nu-jazz. I used to make normal music, like romance era adagio piano compositions, but I like to try different directions to see where it leads me. This one lead me directly to an album publication in Sweden, so bite me

    I think at age 76 I have sufficient experience to define and recognise noise. Music by my definition is pleasant, tuneful, melodic and harmonic. To my ears your offering has little if any of these.

    There seems to be attempts in all forms of the arts, visual, dramatic, literature and music to push boundaries way beyond anything pleasureable, (the same could also be applied to fashion). The media hype something and loads of people believe what the media says and it just snowballs out of all proportion. (e.g. Gorecki and Einaudi)

    I'm not against innovation, else I wouldn't be here at a computer composing this reply. I don't think you should not try different directions, but just because you're getting an album published does not mean you have something that will appeal to everyone.
    Cheers MIKE.

    This is pretty much the electronic music of my specific generation (I'm 34), it has clear relations to artists like Amon Tobin and Xploding Plastix, and you wouldn't consider that music either by those definitions. Millions, however, do.
    I definately don't try to satisfy everyone, I try to satisfy myself primarily.

    Your comments in this thread has been mostly unneccesary, rude and impolite.

    I have always said: " To thy oneself be true" and that guy knew more about life then many of us I do believe. Interesting use of the organ as a background ( tradition) and modern progression and rthyms in the foreground in Upchurch. I enjoyed both pieces.. but i enjoy Yannhi and other composers in this genere too. I do refer masters works.. but all generes have their value to the scope of music. I prefer this to way out Jazz crap which my poor mind can not comprehend.. Keep up the good work.
    ....To play only what is written is the domain of science. To realize what is not written is the domain of art."

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    I would suggest your response was not exactly polite either, so let's call it equal on that

    You did post for a review, which is asking for an opinion which I have given, as has Corno Dolce, so you have one good and one not good. If you can not accept adverse opinions then that is not my problem.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Compared to talking about death wishes? Then I think it's overly polite, Mike. Besides, someone once said that art is recognized by its debate value, so these two pieces must be art to the max. Thanks.

    And thank you wljmrbill, always a pleasure to serve
