This is a Orchestral blues, that Im not sure whether i should stop working on it or not. Do you guys like it, or is it a little weird? :confused:

I like the composition ... the idea.
The performance is a bit strange in the timing at some places.
That's what I'd work on.

I do really like the idea.

Hi Evan,

I like Gershwin and it's true, there some similar feeling in your music. I agree with the comment above, the timing sounds strange sometimes... even if this type of music is meant to be unstable, it sounds too weird to me at times...

Another thing: the strings don't sound too natural.

But overall I recognize the performance. Gershwin-like music is kinda hard to make, and you did a nice job. ;)

Hey Evan,
Yep, That Gershwin bluesy kind of feel is there. There was a spot at about 1:16 where the rhythmic feel sounded strange or not together. The ritard and accellerando sounded good. The one element I thought was pretty rough was in the beginning with the trap set and piano. Too much reverb at that point? Anyway, it's an interesting track and also, learning how to score for period pieces is a good idea.
