ivescouple.gifRalph,

I’ve been watching and listening to your recent scena and before Harmony and I go off to dinner, I need to point something out that will help it. Too much of the scene is the same dynamic. Give us a section that is breathtakingly quiet, and a section with a ear-blasting volume ol’ Berlioz would envy. Apply the same thing to the registral shape of your overall scene. Right now, you are flooding the bass, baritone, tenor and alto range. There is not a lot of highs. Strip away the bass for a while. It can become fatiguing. You’ve done these things before. I’ve heard them in several of your songs. You need to do it to this scene.

Charlie
