    Default Open Water (Symphonic Poem)

    This is actually my first orchestral piece. I finally got this one part in the middle with the big crescendo to go the way I wanted it, to make it polyphonic, in an unrefined and spontaneous but still in a very ordered way. Combining chromatic and diatonic harmony.

    I don't know which patches you are using, but it sounds very... mechanic. It needs a more life-like flow, some dynamics so to speak. Often VST's no matter how realistic, always sound very mechanic/static, you need to adjust the dynamics settings yourself. This can be programmed in your DAW using the MIDI-channels.

    Also some of the harmonies sound a little too dissonant for my preferences.

    You seem to have great control of variation, that is definetely something I can learn from. You have some nice contrasts.

    Interesting. I'll look into that.
