    Thought I would post a working file instead of a finished one from my DAW. Not too glamorous but sometimes fun to put up what work goes into a song.

    Ayyy, high-five from another Reaper user. People always give me clueless looks when I tell them I work in Reaper for professional production gigs...

    Here's some older, excerpted material I did a ways back for a portfolio for a psycho-suggestive music gig. I'll put up some more recent stuff up when it's not late my time. I have a very high-fi album from my senior year at the big fancy recording studio at my conservatory. Needs some remastering though.

    Also, @Cellist88 Love your tone! It's refreshing to hear really clean phrasing and vibrato like that. So many folks nowadays throw in unnecessary rubato and heavy bowing and it just muddies up the line. The Schumann particularly was great, you did so much expressing with dynamics and kept the tempo shifts subtle and the bowing light. Very nice playing.

    Thanks @ThePianoMan . The other two recordings before were recorded almost 2 years ago. Its good to hear from something that I am improving :). Studying in Germany changed a lot of that weird rubato and taste that tends to plague many artists nowadays in their attempts to sound unique. I try to do only what is necessary and try to let the music speak for itself.

    Ah, yeah. The Europeans will do that. I'm usually pretty open to interpretation, but so many artists nowadays just play a lot of notes without knowing why.

    Also, @Garns the Unity Gain Temple stuff is HOT. Love it. Such an inventive mix of accessible and more out stuff.

    Unrelated, Are you a Cat Empire fan?

    After thinking about finishing something.. and never getting around to it, I'll just release these demos to the group. Maybe one day I'll polish something up. I'll point out the non pop rock stuff as interesting experiments. That said, enjoy.
