Crows Are Flying East

Recommended Posts

"The crows maintain, a single crow could destroy heaven. That is doubtless, but doesn't move heaven. For heaven implies precisely: impossibility of crows."

Crows, Van Gogh and Kafka.
Just sitting here listening and pondering.

Nice instrumental David. Kind of an interlude piece.

Kafka was always precise, no?

Thanks Bjorn.  We should still get together some time.

Thanks Nigel.  It's designed for the new millenium where everyone's famous for five minutes.  :D:D

That's a cool short composition - you should do a lengthier version. What sound library did you use there?

Hi Douglas, this is ***** by spitfire (alternatve solo strings)  it's a great library.  When I listened to it again this morning, I agree with you it should be longer.   Thanks for your time :D:D

I think I've mentioned this before, for some reason some of your pieces remind me of the soundtrack to Yellow Submarine.
I hope you'll take that as a compliment.
As to Kafka, I guess all my taste is in my mouth. Some of the "great" 20th century novelists leave me cold.
Salinger, Perfect Day for Banana Fish, really? He wrote ***** in Catcher, BFD.

Maybe I've been cooped up to long?
Ya think?

off to curl up on the couch with some good 'ol pulp fiction; I won't have to think...

A couple of others. They are especially germane today.

Dont get me started on Salinger.  But if you've read nine stories...then you're way cool.  He was a friend of my Grandmother's.  6 degrees...y'know. Also, if teddy died (dode?) it was a heroes death.

Very nice, David! I come from a classical background, so I really appreciate a good orchestral tune. It was short, as you noted, but you packed a lot into that 1:14. Very complex, dissonant at times, but beautiful. Nicely done!

So I added a middle section, but it clips on some speakers and not others.  What should I do? Also, the little tune in the middle is Segovia's estudio sin luz.   (study without light, I thought it was apropos of crows)  Thank you Tom and Wookie for listening and the suggestions.

What the?  That not only was short, but sweet, as well.

Lynn,  I get better reviews here the shorter the piece. :D:D  The middle section I added reminds me of dorothy in the tornado.  Crows are so confusing.

Yes, I agree, longer! I really like the originality you bring to every piece.

Your wish is my command!
