"Tony Tersmette really hits it out of the park with his track Blue Chalk[in']. He builds on the synth pop of the past but definitely takes the song to a place in the future. A solid production and well thought out electric composition." -- Jason Miles, pro reviewer.

Tony,

Appreciate the 5's for "First Light On The Prairie". Started out as a solo country/jazz guitar piece from eons ago. It's one of those tunes I intend to revisit...
Just spent my next 2 years allowance on Mojo2 Horns 2.0. Now I have to learn how to use it. And, of course, I get a message from Kontact that my current version of their product needs to be updated to use the new software...it never ends.

I'll look into Mojo2 Horns myself. Not super keen on dishing out cash myself but occasionally it"s worth it. - T

Yeah, pricey stuff. Might also look at acoustic samples V Horns and V Saxophones. About $50 bucks less if you buy both programs, actually I wanted to get these instead but Sweetwater let me make payments which didn't hurt quite as much and didn't carry the V Horns/Sax product.
I'd check them both out...let me know what you think.

Hi Rex,

Many thanks for the stars and playlist for Achill Lament, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I did wonder how you'd come by it, just by chance?

Been listening to Ashes, a very powerful piece, you'd never guess its not a new track.

Cheers,

Bob

Hi Bob!
I had actually listened to it some months ago, am certain I commented on it favorably at that time, thought I had given it 5 stars, maybe not (?). More recently, when I had mentioned to you I felt I was in good company as a UKSC instrumental finalist, it was because I had noticed that Achill Lament was a finalist last year (I believe it was). This time, as you are one of those folks I need to visit once in a while, I was looking over your tunes and noticed it needed stars (!). So I listened and my suspicions were confirmed. :)
Yes, Ashes is 20+ years old, from an 'album' I had attempted using Cakewalk (I have been using Logic these days). I have mostly buried that thing, save for this piece which was perhaps the best of the bunch. Thank you, sir!!

Got you. Many thanks Tony, much appreciated. (I'm still a Cakewalk user after many, many years - it has all I need and I understand it reasonably well now, would hate to have to start again.)
Cheers,
Bob

Hi Tony/Rex,
Have to thank you for the 5's for "Space In Between". Well, I guess I didn't have to, but, you now, professional courtesy and all.
When do you find out about the UK thing?

Mijnheer Bill,
UK contest. I don't know, could announce any time now is my guess. Trying to temper my expectations, can't doubt this final stage is brutal. When i listen to and re-analyze my submissions, maybe they are 'ok', but it isn't hard for me to rationalize their not making the cut. We'll see. In any case, I ain't quittin'.
