Real Time Orchestra Impro. Demo of NUCLEUS LITE EDITION ORCHESTRA: Musical No Voice Demo / Review

I used to do a lot of this back in the day when composing film music, and playing live to the film, laying down real time cues and then go back to tidy them up (tweaking a few notes here and there and timing), but I do love having an orchestra at my fingertips – excuse the slight rustiness of this particular outing which is really a demo of the very cost effective plug-in from Audio Imperia. A continuous demo of Nucleus Lite Edition Orchestra. A totally free form improvisation of each of the sounds then a longer 5 layer composition of sorts. The sections are below: 0:00 Strings Full Ensemble Sustained 1:38 Strings Full Ensemble Spiccato 2:26 Woodwind Full Sustained 4:17 Woodwind Full Spiccato 4:52 Brass Full Sustained 6:11 Brass Full Spiccato 6:48 Timpani / Glock 7:26 Choir Full Sustained 8:49 Choir Full Spiccato 9:30 Snares, Bass Drum, Cymbals, Gong 10:15 Improvised composition Layer 1 – Strings 17:30 Layer 2 – Woodwind 24:58 Layer 3 – Brass 32:42 Layer 4 – Choir 40:31 Layer 5 – Percussion FOLLOW ME: Bandcamp Album Releases – https://garyphayes.bandcamp.com/ Support me on Patreon – https://www.patreon.com/garyphayes Blog (music posts) – https://www.garyphayes.com/ Facebook (Photography – 19k following) – https://www.facebook.com/garyphayesph… Twitter (26k following) – https://twitter.com/GaryPHayes Instagram (Photography 28k following) – https://www.instagram.com/garyphayes….

A JAPANESE MODEL IN MILAN: ‘light’ jam on Akai EWI & Elektron Model:Cycles Impro – descriptive text

Simple improvisation on Akai EWI controlling Elektron Model:Cycles recorded on #ZoomH6 no other processing Composed & Performed © Gary P Hayes in Mount Victoria Blue Mountains Australia copied from a response I did below “EWI does most of the ‘MIDI’ translation work as Cycles has a pretty standard midi implementation. You can assign for example the breath sensor to things like velocity and cutoff CCs … the thing you saw me doing here was on one sound tr4 assigning the breath pressure to ‘volume’ also, so that allowed the ‘after’ feel, you can make sounds louder or softer after they have played – but it had the odd effect of locking sounds at zero or full volume if you weren’t playing, so I switch it in and out for sounds other than tr4 here”
