Hello,

I am a composer from Oklahoma (originally from Sweden). I started out writing songs for weddings back in Sweden and when I moved to the US 1997 I started writing classical music for live performance. About a year ago I did my first film score ("The Sweetest Perfection" by Danny Vardi) and I loved it.

I have been using GPO for a couple of years and just bought my first copy of EWQLSO Platinum + Symphonic Choirs. I am excited! :)

Please, leave a comment or send me a mail. I would love to "meet" you.

Have a wonderful day,
Lydia

I have been spending some time this morning listening to some of the music composed by other composers here on the forum. What a great inspiration. I am very happy that I found this forum. So much excellence.

Hi Lydia, well once you´ve been playing around with the East West stuff you´ll just throw that old GPO in the draw and forget about it, well I did except to say..... although there are no articulations the woodwind is far more in tune than on my East West Library ! I listened to some of your music which is very nice, I think you need to work a little on the mixing side, for example in Exodus the Glockenspiel is louder than the whole orchestra and that´s not possible unless he has a 500 watt amplifier ?? I don´t think so right? but some really nice scores ! Chris. My folks came from Sweden too ;)

Chris,

You're absolutely right about the mixing. Usually my husband (Nathan) helps me with the mix, but he didn't have time for Exodus and I didn't know what to do - so it is not mixed at all. I need to learn though. I can't rely on Nathan being available to mix my stuff at all times - he does have other things to do as well... Do you have any advice on how to learn? (any books for example - or is it just something that I need to do over and over until I learn what to listen for?)
