Art about dreams,… and reality.
As dreams are made on ,
“The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Ye all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind.
We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”
—Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” Scene 4 Act 1

occurrence of nature.

And some music.

to Sweeter Dreams-
Long, long ago music….A classical style piece BWV 593, 2nd Movement.-
The organ and flute melodic lines lend a sound-feeling of vast space, and leave one with hypnotic feeling.
-Reminiscent of a modern Vangelis or Styx.
I ported this MIDI through 2 soft synths (Yamaha DX and TTS) to create the realism of true instrumental playing, and also used SonicFX for the added “mild” default reverb and stereo panning.
I mixed down the 2 together – the panning as an extra layer on top of stereo.
I thought that a soft panning might accent the open air feeling of the piece.
It is a somber and a meditative composition.
Hope you like it.
Here are two versions.. the first is the latter and to me the better, thanks for listening!.
Amazing Grace, Syncopation, Band Syncopated Arr. Of “Amazing Grace” with instr. Piano, trumpet, clarinet,.
Instead of ¾ time this is in 4/4 & ¾ time which
May cause accented beats to occur at “off” beats (syncopated).
The syncopation wasn’t Originally intentional, but I liked the review while composing and decided to keep it as is as I composed .
-a very small intro , also I kept a violins stave in the score but left it open “free”.
I noticed a skip when bouncing this to a track at the end of the first composition but left it there because it flows into the next form at ¾ time with percussion (and I was tired -)The 4/4 syncopated rhythm does lend a emotional blue’s feel to the piece.
I composed this “e-z” piece with musescore and port synth’d it through a tts cakewalk synth.
I’m practicing (real time?) other pieces (2 or so ) so I still give a little time (really a heck of alot) to beginning composing
And the score

A “wordpress diary” of original compositions and a beginner’s composing.
(maybe 30 years late start in composing )
The previous compositions like “Greensleeves” already had a
melody line to which I added accompaniment, and instruments in classical style.
This is my own,, good or not.
A start anyway.
It is written as a
Piano melody line
Accompaniment (one piano)
Vocal “ahh” accompaniment-
Violin-counterpoint (a little)
And Horn (duet to violins)
Thanks for any comments. BTW if you compare it something ,say, not very fluid, it sounds pretty OK…
really liked the “Greensleeves” elaboration……
Thanks for watching!
