    New world record! Three symphonies in four hours. Must be very rainy there in Hilo.
    Will listen to the new works later.

    A massive improvement over what I first heard. Keep at it. I still think you should experiment and try to spend a month or so on a single symphony.

    Really?
    I love Muzio Clementi's music.

    I assume so. A month can be quite a short time I think for a large scale work like a symphony.

    I sort of meant the bit about a 'massive improvment' There really hasn't been, I'm sorry and I would love to hear a Billy Symphony that had some...well a theme at least. Doesn't the same timbre grate a bit after 30 odd 'symphonies' for others? Perhaps I'm missing a trick, no I must be, yet randomly pressing keys for 30 mins with 3 pauses in between to signify a new movement, which are exactly the same, is not art. There is no effort apart from a bit of patience.
    I love Muzio Clementi's music.

    Billy...don't you think that a symphony should be something more dynamic and prolific? I'm all for experimentation and improvisation, but it doesn't seem like you know what you're doing. I just feel like you're pushing through each symphony as quick as possible, oblivious to your surroundings.

    "Where is the theme?" the conductor Deshoff asked the composer Anton Bruckner, when Bruckner presented him his symphony in D minor. That comes into my mind when I read this.

    Oh ok, sorry . Still, I have found that there are recurring motifs in a texture one could call contrapuntal.

    That's called luck, random notes I suppose will repeat eventually in 15+ hours of ,ahem, music. Therefore I don't think it is intentional.

    I don't mean throughout the symphonies, I mean within two minutes. On a whim I followed the horn part and found a repeating motif that was in the violin part as well at different times. There was some more stuff like that as well. I think I now know how to listen to these. Probably.

    I don't get this. Why does people say this is good? Sounds exactly like his first symphonies. mleghorn tried to give him some constructive feedback, and billy told him to grow up. And now your all supporting him? If you sympathize so much with him, then give him some real feedback, instead of saying it's good. This is just a dude improvising on a keyboard, by pressing random notes in a scale. If this is going to get good sometime, it has to be worked on properly. At least study some music theory.

    y'all retarded
    I said it was a massive improvement, I didn't say I liked it. He's on the right track though, maybe by Symphony #800 I'll finally be able to become a member of the Billy fanclub . My feedback on the first page of this thread still stands.

    I supported him earlier because I felt the criticism was no longer constructive, but merely sarcastic. I do not understand where the guy is coming from - or, well I'm not sure. I'm not a member of the fanclub.

    I admire your creative drive but to be honest it sounds like coming from a computer... now that would be quite genius.

    Have you ever heard of a break, a pause, silence in music?
