Works in Progress: Junior / Re: Mi Cuasi Son Montuno
« Last post by sandalwood on Today at 03:57:18 PM »
Thanks for your reply Morten!  I'm glad you liked my very slowly-progressing try at writing Latin music. I don't know much about Latin music, either, despite the last several months I have been trying to learn.  Yes, Son Montuno is a sub-genre of the AfroCuban/Latin genre and  it translates into a set of distinctions, some stricter some not so much, regarding form, composition of the orchestra, tempo, basic rhythm, etc. As to the orchestra, it is supposed to feature a lead singer and 2-5 chorists which is basically why I call my piece  a "quasi" Son Montuno (not to say omelette without eggs :)).

Soundcloud's continuing to the next piece without asking can be quite aggravating. Nice to hear it wasn't in your case. I'm extremely delighted that you found listening to Ninni that much enjoyable. Yes, I did post it some time back, with the topic title "Old Lullaby Revisited". It stands close to the bottom of the first page in "Works in Progress: Junior" section .

Thank you Morten! Much appreciated really!

Thank you for posting this. As mentioned by Jay and Jer a score would be nice.  :)

I for one find it easier to compose using Finale, save it as MIDI and then load it into Cubase. My DAW of choice.

Maybe because Iíve used Finale for so long that I find it easier and I need to make a score that looks OK.

Reha, I donít know much about latin music, but I enjoyed this very much. Havenít had time to look at the score. Loved the percussion and the flute solo. I take it that Son Montuno is a musical form?

And then something nice happened. To me anyway.  :) When I listened to it on Soundcloud I read through the comments and when the piece finished it jumped to your next piece, Ninni. That piece did something to me. :)

Maybe you have posted it on the forum earlier. If you did I totally missed it. Glad I found it.

Sorry about the play-count (I hope that is an English word describing the number of times Ninni has been played).  :) It was on 2 and is now on 9.  ;D

Thank you for your kind comments.  Now if I can only find a small orchestra that feels as positive about it as the people on this form. :)

Lovely Patrick, enjoyed this very much. I too am attracted to experimenting with looser forms, but haven't approached the success you've had here. I also particularly liked the harmonic language and the orchestration. Well done.

Sorry to hear you're going through a difficult time. Like others here I can relate to all of the various demands on your time and energy, including the joy and suffering of raising children. :) I know you'll be back at it as soon as you are able.
