if the Bards are your favourite, why aren't they listed under your favourite bands...? Or does it go without saying ? :mrgreen:

I'm not a fan of purely orchestral music except within the context of a film, but I quite liked a couple of yours. I didn't turn it off after 2 seconds, which is praise from me. :wink:

Hey Cristiano, I was just wondering if you know of Radio Rivendell?
It's a web radio station that plays stuff like movie and game soundtracks and such, and your music would fit there just perfectly if you're interested in getting your songs heard more widely.
I think your music sounds quite good, and I think there's a good chance Lord Elrond would gladly put some of your tracks on the playlists. :)

http://www.radiorivendell.com/
There's a link, just go in and drop the guy a word, maybe you can arrange something. :)
You can tell Elrond that one of his forumers pointed you the way, I go by the name SilverDrake over there. :P
And The Lord said unto John: 'Come forth and receive eternal life'.
But John came fifth, and won a toaster.

Just a question: is your music recorded by synthesizer or a real orchestra/organ/piano? The latter is more epic, that's why I'm asking :)

Yes I listened to some. It's good, but disappointing to hear that the organ is done by keyboard.

But you do agree with me that even the best virtual organ can't compete with the real work, right?

Not that I'm saying that this sounds bad (absolutely not, it sounds very good even)

mmmm maybe yes...but is not easy make a right microphone set in a real organ,you can't editing at the best,you must find a great organ player..a gotic church(you can find a good reverber for my composition in milano's cathedral and in notre dame)....and the results is better ma it is very very difficult obtain a same effect...i think is better"the real vst all time:))))""do you agree...???:)))))

Hmmm... fair enough :P

But my father loves organ music, so he heard it instantly. That's why I was pointing it all out.

Hi Cris, good to hear from you again. Good news about the cover artist, I think he did Avantasia's Metal Opera 2?

And now I'm still curious... will it all be synth work or is there also some real instruments involved?

Hi!!!yes Jp Fournier is the painter of Avantasia 1&2 and edguy "tears of mandrake",dragonforce"valley of the damned "etc...i think is a very good painter(also very friendly man).Yes i bought the best virtual instruments in the world for get a realistic sound,sincerely in almost all tracks is not simple listen a difference from real instruments.Of course who knows very well the articulations and the real sound, and reverbs...can get the difference..but i hope it is not simple to everyone:)!i tried to do my best and i worked with good soundengeneers and the mastering will be at Forward studios in Rome,the best in Italy now.For me the most inportant thing is the impact,the melodies,the sound and the atmosphear...i think i've done my best with my "music weapons".and i have worked alone for 90%...i hope you'll enjoy it!your opinion is important..you are a "trained hears"man!:)

By the way, I got a nice tip for you when it comes to soundtracks. The Lord of the Rings cartoon movie from the 70s actually had a great soundtrack in my opinion, everyone should check it out 8)

Normally, as a forumer, I would completely ignore your advertisement of shameless self promotion, but since your Italian I suppose it's worth a listen.

Just listened some samples, and I think it's very good. I don't know if I'd have recognised the sampled instruments if I didn't know about it, very well done.

Really? I can tell that they are samples, though quite good ones. The one I could tell least with was the organ, though. :) Anyway, from the bits I heard, it sounded very good.

Of course I can hear that they are samples if I listen very closely, but as you said, it's quite good and it might fool me the first time I'd have heard it ;)

This is good music, it deserves to be played by a real orchestra. Wouldn't you prefer that if it were possible, Cris? (not saying this sounds bad, as I said, it sounds good ;) )

thx guys..this is my first album and a quite good sound it is already a good results for me...being my first album there was a little budget...but i have composed and recorded all music..i couldnt make a score for a true orchestra cause the time is a tyranny:)and the budget it wasn't enough:little example(
with samples:6 months and for example 5000 euro budget.....final price 13,90(good i think)results:good
with real orchestra: 18 months and 15000 budget(without choir)30000(with choir)final price 18,90results very good.
I think,being a first production,that the first choice is the better one(time,budget, and final costs),there is difference of sound but no a huge difference i think.ps the organ is true!(i'm joking but is a good sample:D!)

Hi Cris, I ran into your CD last Saturday, so I decided to buy it. Listening to it right now, and so far it's very good.
