It's great to be a percussionist, but sometimes there are some problems, when it comes to make a proper mix - I mean "Lets make that snare drum a little bit louder!" and then "Aah, and the timpani part is too quiet, let's give 'em HELL!" or "There's not enough devil in the bass drum, show them no mercy!". If the sound of bass drum or timpani could kill, I would probably exterminate the whole planet

And when it comes to play in the orchestra, timings of other sections are breaking our brains

Avantgarde is and will always be new and original, IMO.

But, I don't know what you call avantgarde. I call avantgarde a mental attitude that lead to some sound experiments made with the intention to be original. I can't even call it music. Therefore, me thinks that avantgarde has the monopoly of originality - nothing is original except avantgarde.

Thinking that "originality is desirable" is a very original thought, the premise and the leading path towards that cul-de-sac called avantgarde.

Anybody here thinking he/she writes original music?

Thanks for warm welcome, everyone!

I hope we'll learn how to be damn geniuses here

My name is Piotr actually, but I like wearing "Pietro" as nick. (when the idea's born, I even didn't know, it's italian version of my name)
Jacob, I feel quite a connection to your signature...

Have fun composing! And feel free to ask if you have some percussion/drums question
- Piotr

Hm... since you offered...

I'm working on a symphonic rock opera and am struggling a bit with the drum lines (among other things)...

I use Drumkit from Hell 2, whose samples are basically dry. What's your feeling on mixing drums, specifically the use of eq and compression?

btw, I like the polish spelling of your name... I have a friend from Poland named Katarzyna, who shortened her name to Kasia to keep from tutoring everyone in pronunciation.

Oh... nice cropping of your photo, also.
