Thy Kingdom Come
on: January 07, 2019, 17:08:41
So a little background on this. I've been hanging with a few classical musicians and composers trying to get at the nuts and bolts of what they do and in being a string player myself. I have some history in band/classical music but hated it in my teens. My intention was to sit down and write some nice acoustic music. Instead this is what happened. I know. I'm a walking contradiction sometimes.

I'll leave it at that. Due to the kinds of music here I almost feel the need to apologize for this  ;D

If it isn't your thing no need to comment on it.

 I think something is wrong with my SoundCloud. I don't see how my track could have had this many plays in two days. I haven't and never will pay anyone to "help" me on Soundcloud. I did get a like or two from some promotional site wanting me to check them out. Maybe they picked me up as some kind of promo???? I don't really know.
Has anyone else had this issue?

Nice atmospheric piece with some very interesting changes.

@Timothy Smith  I`m not qualified to critique the structure of this... I did enjoy the ebb and flow and the layers of sound - at times delicate and and others almost strident by degrees. You paint a Kingdom of musical contrasts.
 I see no reason to apologize for posting your classical compositions here. ::thumb::

I once had 100 plays appear from nowhere on a Soundcloud song from some repost of a repost? Who knows...unfortunately  you can`t take them to the bank ;)

Thank you for you comments @Leonard Scaper . Would you rather me call you Leon? If you want to keep it formal I understand.
Anyone can call me Tim. Same goes for you Robertkc.

I changed this around some from the original idea which I didn't post here. I appreciate you listening to it and for your comments.

I've been called a lot of things in this long life, but never Leon, Tim. Truth is, my real name is Steve Gleason. I took Len Scaper as a nom de plume when I first started writing back in the 70's. I was a young landscaper back then and it seemed like the cool thing to do at the time.  ;D It kind of stuck over the years.....these days I'm sometimes not sure if I'm Lenny or Steve.  ;)

I see. A common thing people do nowadays. I'm not worried about identity theft. I don't have any money and if they come to my house looking to steal let's just say I'm ready. As you can imagine being a Smith has a few bennies.

@robertkc I am sorry I missed to reply to you.Thank you.

@A Man of simple pleasures. thank you as well. I am trying to decide if I like the 1st version of this better. Here is that link if anyone cares to sample it. That track has a bit more edge and energy than the one I posted. I would love opinions on which you like best.
