    You are doing something alright, I call that modern classical.

    Hi Frederik:
    Thanks for the link. I enjoyed this movement tremendously. Has a nice "edge" to it while maintaining a sense of expansive beauty. I hope it was as satisfying to hear it performed live as it was for me to enjoy.

    Hello. This is my first time and I'm trying to get used. Thank you.

    It's a concentrate of both the original French poem by H.R.H. Prince Henrik (The Prince Consort) and the Danish translation, or rather "re-creation" by the writer Per Aage Brandt. Even though the sections are (mostly) in the original chronological order the fact that it in a way is two poems may account for some of the "choppyness" (that, and my somewhat rusty French ). However, when used in the musical context it flows like it's supposed to.

    I am just discovering this forum and your music, Mr. Magle. I am curious that this movement was performed...3 years ago, but is not yet available on a recording, and perhaps this is the situation with some of your other work, as well. Is there a reason for that? Your work is Wonderful! Another fan, from the U.S. Susanne in Eugene, Oregon.

    Thanks! I did find that page already. I've never used a forum before so if I'm at least in the right "thread" I guess I'm learning Susanne.

    A very much belated thanks to Susanne! »Souffle le vent« is not yet available on CD, but it will most like be though not until the whole of »Cantabile« has been given its first performance. I may have something to announce regarding this later this year. Don't ask, please

    Cb64, thanks a lot for that great comment (ps: you will be receiving a reply to your request very soon )

    Best regards,
    Frederik

    Your Song

    Hey thats a cool excerpt you have there.

    Thats the kind of stuff I want to learn how to write. Meaning modern kind of music that is harmonious rather than dissonant such as alot of todays modern composers.

    I'm studying music at uni and we are getting right into modern music there. Alot of it seems to be so thought intense that it takes the focus off the music itself. It seems to be a musical distraction the same way that pop music is saturated with images promoting its performers as heroes.
    The kind of stuff you're writing I don't believe has alot of musical distractions. Its the kind of music that can be enjoyed without involving yourself in the social culture of composition, philosophy or the worshiping of musicians(who in pop music are often inferior musicians anyway).
    When the focus of music is put on the wrong things then people listen to the music for the wrong reasons, eg to feel smart or superior, or to have a hero to worship.
    I think its possible that people enjoy good music instinctively. For example no matter what culture you're in an octave or perfect 5th has the illusion of consonance. Whether its human instinct or a physical vibration that the brain is attracted to I don't know, but I think music that surpasses culture and social scenes can be appreciated by anyone else who chooses to surpass their culture and social scene. I think alot of film scores do this because they are designed to move a persons emotions, rather than appeal to their social thought patterns.
    Anyway. Cool music. I like most of it, the pizz at the start of the excerpt is cool, I especially like the quiet bits. Nice and relaxing.

    I really want to hear this in full, does anyone know where/how I can?

    The third excerpt is like part of Mozart's requiem, one of my favourite pieces. (And Mozart knew that it would be considered a sort of benchmark too!)

    I have a napster subscription but isnt on there... some of Mr Magle's older stuff is on there though

    Thanks

    I was looking for something like that last night and my DSL box kept
    cutting off where I didn't get to hear it. I gave up and got something
    else to listen to for dinner.

    I bet your DSL isn't as bad as mine

    It cuts off whenever you try to use it, but I suppose that is what you get when you buy a cheap internet service bundled with satellite TV

    Well, I didn't buy it, my dad did. *grumbles*
