    Default My first orchestral track - Dalmatian Nights

    Hi everyone.

    This is my first attempt at writing something professionally for a full scale orchestra so be gentle. Give it a spin and share a thought maybe. Comments and suggestions about the music per se, the instrumentation, the sound quality etc. are more than welcome.

    Enjoy!

    Well, it's not my style and I don't like all these sweet violins and the turning around (on the ballroom dance floor) that's going on but in it's genre I think it certainly has quality. I couldn't do it myself for sure. So chapeau! What I do like is the jumpiness of the first 10 or 15 seconds. It also has some sort of Tango Waltz feel if I interpret that correctly.

    Thx guys for the time to listen to it and commenting

    @Casebearer I'm still trying to figure out if it is a tango... I wasn't thinking tango, but everyone tells me it sounds like a tango: Everyone besides real tango-dancers who say this is not really dancable! Pop people think it's too "classical", "classical" people think it's too pop... You know... I guess that's part of the fun of composing something and sharing it with others!

    @Pugg thx! I wish I did write film scores (getting paid that kind of money!)

    This is absolutely fabulous. I found it earlier on a classical thread (your introduction) and we are playing it repeatedly here in Uppsala, Sweden. We have been dancing to it all over the weekend. Can't remember a tune gave such an impression on me. Why don't you release it on Spotify, publish e.g. through spinnup.com, very trustworthy and affordable. I have done that twice myself and although my tune was sparsely played I got a small payment back, showing that the company is trustworthy.
    Maybe you like this one:

    Best wishes,

    Beautiful piece Kjell, nicely composed. Only thing I'd need to mention is that I wouldn't have guessed from it we're in the 21th century. I don't mean that nasty, just as a fact.

    Thanks Kjell! Being able to make someone you don't even know dance is what it's all about for me!

    I listened to your track and loved it too! All the best!
