Flute Quartet in four movements

Postby ottomc » Sat Feb 09, 2013 7:12 pm

As an appendix to my recent post in the main Notion forum, where I discuss the quality of different woodwind libraries when it comes to convincing playback of rapid passagework, I paste the link to a flute quartet in four movements. Comments and suggestions on how to use and tweak the sound of flute samples are welcome,

http://youtu.be/fMeTr1whBqs "Rain"

http://youtu.be/Q0P-MqSn-Y0 "Mist"

http://youtu.be/nj1hboCcr9w "Wind"

The quartet is tentatively named "Four Weathers for Four Flutes". I know that the phrase "Four Weathers" is not very idiomatic, but to my ears it comes close to having a somewhat poetic quality. Am I wrong? Advices from native English speakers (or others) are welcome.

BTW, I know from experience that playing flute quartets in the real world is a tricky business. It requires four players with sharp ears, excellent embouchure and perfect instruments. But still, I love the flute and like to use it in various settings!

Best,
Otto

Nice!

How do you capture the score playback to video?

Thanks!

I use Screenflow, which is Mac only. I use both Windows and Mac, though, but so far I haven't found a capturing tool for Windows that captures the audio as well.

Otto:
You're right that the noun "weather" isn't typically used in this way in English, distinquishing one "weather" from another. But in this case I think it's very apt. I can't think of another word that would be better.
