Symphony #55, Op 336 - III. Finale

Lovely opening theme--somewhat Celtic-influenced(?). Good stuff! Nice contrast of major and minor harmonies. I'm always interested in knowing how people make their music. Did you play synthesizers, or did you score this out on the computer?

Rob I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy this song! It's great and it really reminds me of Bobby Caldwell. I love Bobby Caldwell. I played it for a friend and she really liked it too. Steve had a fun time working on it and I got to hear it a lot. Nice song. Oh, and I love the bass.

Thanks, Nancy. I must admit, I'm not familiar with Bobby Caldwell. Perhaps I should remedy that. Stevie did a great job (and that doesn't surprise me). Thanks for noticing the bass, too. I love playing bass.

@Ingrid: Rob really is a superb writer, the lyrics of this piece are just great..!! It's an upbeat treatment of a universal and very real life dynamic. He was killin it when he tracked the instruments too....such a fun tune..!! An honor to be involved with him and this song...

Thanks for sharing these thoughts, Ingrid. To quote Vangelis (who may have been quoting someone else), "Music is the language of the soul." A few years back, I read a book titled, "Musicophelia," which explained the profound impact music can have on those who have suffered brain injuries(an interesting read). In the early '90's, Rick Wakeman released a series of instrument synth albums (Search: Aspirant) as part of his involvement with research on the ability of music to help seriously ill patients. The music takes into consideration the effects of melody, tempo, and harmonic movement and focuses on the elements that have the most positive effects. The result is very relaxing, strongly melodic music. I take a dose of it sometimes when I'm having trouble sleeping. Good stuff (and no side effects).
