Thought it would be funky (and a nice little challenge) to compose a piece for each of the four elements. The original score was a sibelius file, but the midi sound that was produced was very,very bland! Hence i have recorded each of the four tracks for solo piano (Hence the numerous mistakes. ;) ) It looked much easier on screen than it did on the manuscript stand! :P

The four Pieces are as follows...
Waltz of Fire----"Burning desire!"

Requiem of wind----"Ethereal bliss"

Fanfare of earth----"Solidity"

Allegro of water----"Ebb and flow"


However ive just uploaded the Waltz of fire, as although they are all composed in a similar style, it is the most abstract of the four, and requires alot of patience! :P
Ill upload the rest if yall like it!

Once again apologies for the piano mistakes, ive tried to cover it up by smothering it with reverb! ;)

Edit----Just found out that theres no Santharian relative to the piano!! Imagine it as some sort of percussion maybe?? buck

We do have something, I just have to find it. At least we have an organ. But I need to listen first!

I like it, we have to find the right place for it though! More please!

We may not have the piano, but I'm sure we have the medieval equivalents, even if they haven't been written up yet,  such as the dulcimer, or the harpsichord.  I'm not a bard, but we have a few around who might be able to give you more information, such as Bard Judith or Gean Firefoot, for instance.

I like the sound!  And we can use more bards, so please, do upload more, I'd like to hear it.

Yeah i think i read something about that...a resonance organ i think, im not sure but from reading that entry it sounds like the organ has a very powerful resonant timbre (i think it was modeled on the cry of a dragon or something like that.) But the piano (mine old one in particular ;)) is really punchy and woody.... hmmmm, ill have to ask Bard Judith about that...

Thanks for the link Talia, i think ive read up on that entry, however ill have a search for the older version and maybe i might find something on the comments on the older thread.

Will do! ^^

We can definitely see your talent here, Maggie! Nice job!  grin

But yeah, the problem with the piano is of course that it doesn't sound that medieval anymore. On the other hand it could be a more modern instrument in Santharia - but maybe such pieces can be somewhat tweaked and/or played with other instruments. I remember Macar tried his hand on making some midi pieces into MP3s, and it worked pretty well - the pieces definitely sounded pretty cool!

Wasn't Petros working on a piano type instrument?  Might be ideas in that.

Thanks Arti! :)

Hmmm *Puts on thinking cap...* I think i saw some effects that could be added to recordings to make them sound like different instruments.... Ill upload various "variations" and see what you think!

Speaking of timbre and the like, i was listening to a clavichord for the first time the other day, and when i shut my eyes i couldn't tell the difference between them! nonetheless Piano has become a rather modern sound...Ill do another bit of research on instruments, and ill check out the info Altarios given me.. and see if i can track down a relative...If not...we might just have to make one! ;)

Thanks again guys!

Allegro of water uploaded!

Sorry its in a really nasty key (f# major!) so mistakes are a-plenty! buck
 Its also in 9/8 most of the time, so it has to be played with a limp!

Well, bizarre tuning and tempo, but done very well! The water sonata certainly gives me a feeling of just that, water. Almost like oriental music, I think of a zen garden, with a nice water feature. Well done :)

That's very beautiful, Maggie! Aeolus himself would no doubt be impressed. That's a rather accomplished piece of "hobby" music making. Piano is your profession, then?

Just one question: why is the piece called "requiem"? Who died?

And another one: did you compose these pieces yourself?

I like the watery allegro furioso and the wildfire waltz, too. Will curiously await the trumpets of earth.  :)

Why thanks! heart

Yep, Piano is my first study, but i always wanted to play harp ever since i was small, so i eventually got my wish! To be honest ive had harp lessons almost as long as my piano, but i excelled alot further on my piano.

Its called Requiem because i intended it to be a reflective piece, but got a bit carried away! evil

Yep, fires theme was originally intended for my composition for school, however i scrapped it, and only recently picked it up, water was just some ramblings, and wind was based on a theme of an original scottish tune, "the rowan tree" :)

As Nsiki mentioned, Allegro of Water sounds very Oriental. By a matter of chance I am working on a tribe (quite obviously) inspired by Oriental cultures. They use music as an aid to their spirituality, would you be interested in letting me use it as a soundtrack to their Holy Capital- Tarshuntee?

Of course Decipher!

Didnt find allegro as fitting as the others, gives me an excuse to compose another water theme!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
