    Thanks - it is safe - a 30 second clip of free music.

    Enjoy and good night.
    Don't forget that in The Republic, Plato's ideal vision of a state is pastoral in Book 2

    They will feed on barley-meal and flour of wheat, baking and kneading them, making noble cakes and loaves; these they will serve up on a mat of reeds or on clean leaves, themselves reclining the while upon beds strewn with yew or myrtle. And they and their children will feast, drinking of the wine which they have made, wearing garlands on their heads, and hymning the praises of the gods, in happy converse with one another.
    and this was rejected by Glaucon on the grounds that it only took care of basic needs. Glaucon wants a society in which you can live a luxurious life.

    I hope your music will reflect this tension between Socrates's real desires (or rather Plato's Socrates) and the republic he proposes to his interlocutors.

    Free advice: the beginning of a large piece should be immediately memorable as something unique.

    Is 99 cents too much for a MIDI of the music of the future? In case you're not up to it, it was a pastiche of Mahler or Bruckner. Imagine the interweaving they did with different parts of the orchestra without the unity and coherence of a real theme. The strings come and go. The counterpoint was not done well. No technique. If I didn't pay, I would probably be more kind. I'm glad I only got suckered into paying for the prelude. I'll be skipping on the rest.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Given his comments in here we couldn't have expected more. To riff off a Brahms quote:

    Where did he get such a good website?

    The more I compose, the more I know that I don't know it all. I think it's a good way to start. If you think you know it all, the work becomes a repetition of what you've already done. ~ A. R. Rahman

    So has all the talk been a marketing ploy? It would have been very easy to share it via a sharing site as we do with blind comparisons. But putting it up for sale seems cheeky after telling us so much about how great it is going to be. The 30 second intro reminded me of the sort of atmospheric stuff that some rock bands would play just before they come out on stage.

    Hats stay on Gentlemen....(and ladies of course).
    The future of music is probably best left to the musicians who actually know what to do with it.
