No thanks, close this window
Nice one Alfred ( only just heard this, )you must have had a lot of fun with this one, if you get time please check out my recent Daddies Last Lullaby ,have just started out on keys and its had a VERY mixed reaction Blessings John
Thanks, John. Which song were you referring to?
I've listened to the the lullaby. I thought it was very moving and heartfelt.
Thank Al the one I am referring to is Iamiamiamiamahurricane (recently done on myself but only on e video will upload soonish its called Huriicane, just guitar blessings and thanks for your comment )0(
Hello, Alfred! What can I say, except... thanks, and thanks again!
Btw, I apologize for the late response on your review, here I am.
When I read your comment, then heard your song, I say to myself: wtf!?
This man make good, shiny music! I was blush like village bride, how to say here...
You praised my song too much, this is not the right way; you must sometimes
give yourself freedom, and tell your "brothers in arms" that there is a lack
of this or that, maybe to try this different, that this output from the song
and so on; do not be afraid, we are all star-dust;-).
I listened a few of your songs and I like that sounds, your style is refreshing and joyful, we all need that in this strange times...
P.S. Some time ago, I played guitar a little bit, and now in the corner dust falling on her... This spring, if I take it again, consider yourself a little bit guilty!
Hi Alfred, have just listened and added Niteflyer to my playlist, its really a very very clever and uplifting piece, well done man (-: Are any of your compos available for download or buying please? Hope you having a good Beltane? )0( BLessings, JOHN RSVP?
John, you're much to kind. Thank you for the listen. In just a few more weeks, I will be uploading some new tunes. Apologies for my prolonged absence. Talk to you soon.
Hi Alfred, just to let you know Ive recently uploaded a couple of new songs with me actually "warbling" on LOL , Rich Man Poor Man and Killing Me, both were recxorded in Feb 2012 at a local Exeter Soundgallery Studios, ( they had a special offer £75 for 5 hours, and im quite cxhuffed with the results. be interested in your critique please? Blessing Oh n I ve got to go Hsopiatl tomorrow ( Sunday( for and MRI scan, rather nervous at mo, Blessings )0( John Katon
hello-about 3 months ago (obviously i havent been on this site for awhile) you reviewed my song Kitty Kitty (project213). i wanted to thank you for your kind words!
Robert, you've outdone yourself, at the very least. Congratulations on Atomic Luncheonette. It's an incredible tribute to fine guitar work, and fits nicely as #1 on my playlist. My hat is off to you once again.
Thanks so much, Al. As you heard, it's a little, uh --wiggy/eclectic --and hasn't had much exposure, so it was especially gratifying to read your comment. I appreciate it.
Thank you most kindly for your review of "emersonite." I'm thrilled that you liked the song and must say that I'm very impressed with your music here. Very sophisticated and cinematic type orchestrations worthy of incorporation, hopefully, into film and commercial media.
Best of luck.
Thanks for your very kind review of "fractured." Glad you liked it. Thank you for your consideration. I'm very impressed with your music here! Best of luck to you.
Thank you, Carl, for the very nice review you gave for my song, "fractured." I'm impressed by the degree of depth you went into and thank you for your consideration. And, if I may, I'd also like to make mention of the fact that I'm a tremendous fan of the Doors. Your guitar work is awesome. And the music is incredible! Is there a place where I can find recordings of your guitar work in the tribute band? Thanks again for your consideration.
Hi Al, just reviewed niteflyer and came on over, as your music reminded me of me. Your bio reminds me of me too, so I'm going to follow and if I can help out will be happy to. Would appreciate a listen from you if you have time (though currently I only have the one up).
Well, I've had a listen to two of your works. And I agree with your assertion that our styles of music overlap quite nicely. I think, however, that your music generally displays a bit more musicianship than my own in that you are obviously classically trained. Terminus demonstrates this fusion of talent and knowledge most effectively. More off the record, terminus is quite a moving piece and especially relaxing and enjoyable.
I'm privileged to make your acquaintance, and look forward to further discussion. Absolutely.
P.S. Thanks for the review, which I have found very useful.
Thanks Al. I did have a few years classical training - enough to be able to read music, though I only ever managed to get to grade 3. But enough to build on over the years. Thanks for the listen, and yes, further discussion would be great :)
Hi Al. Caught up listening to several of your songs I hadn't heard before. Really impressed. They all have a great vibe to them. Like the way "Hurricane" blends the heavier feel with those more articulated treble synth sounds. Also noticed some of the synth that sounds guitar-like sliding into some of those harmonics; like in "Fractured." Very cool. "Overdrive" and "Defender" excellent work as well. You've really got a feel for placing poignant phrases and more driving and melodic ones in the right places. A real pleasure to listen to.
I thank you, Robert, for taking the time to listen to my newest works. I'm really flattered that you've taken a liking to them. And I really like your observations. Few folks are able to parse the phrasing and implementation of pauses/ placements. I'm going to move onward and upward here and upload a few more numbers that sort of "push the envelope" for what I consider traditional electronic. In fact, one of them I'm uploading has an uncomfortably loud truck interfering with the recording process towards the end. I'm done cursing now and will re-release that number when I figure out how to edit out the interference.
Thanks again for your consideration, and congratulations on all of your successes, which I've been watching from the wings.
You're welcome, Al. Have to say: "Yes, push that envelope." I'll look forward to hearing the result. I'm sure it will be very interesting.
Many thanks for your kind review of "fractured."
Thank you so very much for your incredibly positive review of my song, "defender." I am extremely humbled by the fact that a musician as accomplished and listened to as yourself appreciates my work.
Many thanks for your input.
Not that accomplished and dirt poor! But u r welcome if you liked what I said!
Al, thank you for your kind remarks and understanding, I hope to have some more mini masterpieces up soon, ( My PC crashed today but I managed to get it up and dare i say it runnng again. Hows things across the POnd?
iamammaneamahuricane (did i spell that right? LOL Crikey Alfred ave listened to it a few times and its so very creative and original!! well done, you are far more experienced at mixing and synthesiser work than me, can almost detect influences of Genesis there, wish i could download it, Its great !! )0( JOhn
Well, Mr. Katon, it's a pleasure to have you back. Love the photo, and I'm eager to read your bio as soon as it's ready. By the way, I've given a listen to your latest (and it's the greatest!) of your guitar innovations thus far. Awesome mix of acoustics and gut wrenching guitar riffs. Very original and well practiced improvisation going on there. It's (freestyle improv) what I wish I could add to my instrumentation but which I cannot, firstly because I can't play guitar; and secondly, because I'm stuck in MIDIville. Thank you for your kind comments and glad to see that you're back at it. Will talk soon!
Thanks Al, But there doesnt seem to be a market for instrumentals at the moment and i had a female singer meet me but she wanted it all written out on sheet music plus good quality recording, I have nt told you but IM trying to recover from a stroke, please remember me in your prayers? )0( JOHN
Hi Alfred, hope you well? Weather in Uk better but am still struggling financially, Have just uploaded a photograph of my 60s semi- pro band The Triffiks ( IM the small one in the middle (-: Bio on the way Blessings, )0( John
Btw although have been playing for a looooong time im just a very keen amateur like your goodself, Have just uploaded Killing Me, if you fancy taking a look ( I got a bit carried away at the end Lol) it was originally a gentle ballad but my vocals arnt what they were (-:
Hey Alfred just wanted to say thanks for featuring our song "september" on your playlist! Thanks so much and we're glad you like it! Stay in touch and if you'd like to hear the music that goes with it check out stephenbanister.bandcamp.com and facebook.com/thestephenbanister project. Thanks again!
The privilege is mine, I'm sure!
Thank you for your very kind review of "Halo", one of my more "difficult to listen to" songs. I look forward to revisiting that song in the future to make much needed improvements. I thank you again for your time and consideration.
you're welcome Alfred , why difficult to listen ? I wrote : better to be longer ...I can't understand why ...
Ah, I see that I haven't been very clear, and I apologize for that. What I meant to convey was that in my own opinion, while I am satisfied with that piece in general, I have been frustrated with the outcome of that particular composition. Sometimes when I finish a song and then listen to it days later, it somehow seems different than I originally intended. I am very fortunate that you had the chance to listen to it and give especial weight to your comments and suggestions.
Thank you again.
I'd like to take a moment to thank you for your review of "fractured." I appreciate your thoroughness and agree with your comments. Thanks again for your time and consideration.
Thank you for your thorough review of my song, "fractured." I'm flattered that you've listened that closely to it. I have found the review extremely useful and will definitely apply changes to future compositions. By the way, I've heard music in the past by Carousel and I'm very impressed. You guys remind me a lot of the band Sponge, which is another favorite of mine. Thanks again for your time and consideration.
I'm glad you found my review useful. I enjoyed Fractured. I'm surprised you've heard Carousel's music. I'm glad you liked it!
Thank you, Pasha, for your very detailed review of my song, "fractured." It has been extremely helpful to me in allowing me to hear some things I didn't hear before, which definitely need improving on. I'm glad you liked it. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
You are welcome Al , it was really nice ...I enjoyed listening .
I'd just like to add my congratulations to your successes. And by the way, I am very impressed by your new song, When Heaven Screams. I love the horn arrangements.
Thanks Al! I really appreciate it. I am hoping to make this work. Maybe one day...
And by the way, the music you've uploaded is absolutely incredible. I can hear the years and years of a style that's been carefully crafted and perfected in your music. And I mean that absolutely.
Comments like this make it all worth it. Thank you very much.
My next upload will be the epitome of Lama Music. Azure Expanse is coming. If I got the mix/master right I think it will be a #1 on the Downbeat chart.
Thank you for your very thorough and kind review of "defender." I'm glad you mentioned the guitar. Since I've got you here, could I trouble you to recommend a way of fixing that particular sound to make it appear more authentic? The synth sound, "jazz guitar", on my Alesis was the most fitting type for that bit. But, as a whole, it barely sounds like a guitar at all and, after endless tweaking and "bending", still sounds like a synth guitar. Again, I thank you for the review and look forward to hearing from you once again.
Loved "defender". From you "artist description" I can understand why I feel your work speaks to me. I do this only for the love of it and to try and get better.
Thanx for your generous review of my song " END OF DAYS". I love your music also.
Thank you, Melvin. It was my pleasure.
Alfred, thanks so much for your review of Darkland. I can tell you took the time to listen and i appreciate it. Thanks -e
The privilege was all mine, Eric.
Big thanks for your review please feel free to check out a few of my latest releases under my drumschool alias via my profile page here on broadjam.
And since I've enjoyed your music, I will definitely check it out. Thank you.
Alfred, Thanks for your the scores on your review of "Lost In TIme". I'm very glad that you enjoyed it!
Just a short note, Robert. Weighing in on Axiomatic. One word on the guitar. Well, I can't use that one. So how about WOW!! Don't try that one on Guitar Hero. Excellent musicianship. Don't peg me on being too kind, either, as your other fans will vouch for me, I'm sure.
Thanks Alfred - I especially appreciate your kind words as that song is something of a self-indulgence. As songs (and songwriting) go[es), I'm well aware that for many listeners, the life is drained from the song if a guitar solo goes longer than ten seconds. This one, basically goes on for three and a half minutes, with some electronics thrown in for relief (ok, ...well it was a little more calculated than "thrown in"). Basically it was fun, was what I wanted to do and hear, so I'll skip the bullshit modesty and tell you I like many things about it, dislike a few and lived with a few compromises. I'm glad you heard something in there that you liked as well. Gratifying - Thank you.
