Dr.Science ... musically, I personally consider it the best of my entries ... but that's probably because I admire the original works of Nino Rota I'm covering here ;) I wish I had ideas like that myself...

Yeah ok, that's 95% original Rota (I just reordered the motifs and changed little bits here and there). So, you just don't like it, fair enough ;)

yup it's not the instruments but the dissonant pitches that hurt. call me oversensitive :)

Well I don't think I messed instruments THAT badly -- maybe you just don't like the dissonant and chromatic motifs?

Sorry, but while Rava Revisited was strange/disturbing but somehow interesting in it's being different from the main stream, this one just hurts in my ears, forehead and brain

@spider-j: of course. @cadaver: thanks, I know ... the first motif uses 2 detuned saws, this takes 2 channels and can't be done in most parts. But then, I could have tried to think of ways to make the rest sound more interesting, too. For the godfather chords, a mediterranean guitar tremolo was intended ... well it's "something else" now ;)

The beginning is interesting, as the instruments are very far from what you usually hear on SID nowadays. The rest (flute part etc.) is more standard, but minimalistic. Could be used in a Saboteur sequel.

Just to clarify: I hope you refered to my review with "rating"; I wasn't the one voting 2 on this.

spider-j, thanks for the honest rating. This won't be the last attempt :) I'm pretty aware now the SID is still a "strange beast" to me, it's hard to make it produce the sound you have in mind and I definitely need more practice/experimentation -- I hope I didn't insult Nino Rota with this :)

Nice arrangement, but - while fitting well for your other tune - your sounds seem to be a little too basic atm for this kind of stuff. You seem to have decent knowledge of music and composing and I'm really looking forward to what is coming from you when you are able to create more advanced instruments. So: Keep 'em coming! :-)
