The Rider And The Silver Bullet. It is written like it was a soundtrack for a real western with open nature and gun fighters seeking revenge.
I had the music of Ennio Morricone in mind when I composed this. The largest project I have made so far written for a full symphony orchestra.

This is stunning, Kenneth! My new favourite piece of yours. I loved the melody here - just beautiful. Nice chord changes, good dramatic segues, great use of instruments too. How did you get the strumming effect that you have with what sounds like a harp? It has an epic feel without sounding bombastic. Stunning.

Flowing very well. Big splendid open landscapes .
I'm impressed by the sounds. You made a great job of getting that sound. It sounds good to me. Is it Logic's symphony orchestra or some other plug ins. Great symphonic brass and wonderful full orchestra! Great job!

@Xolv All the instruments are Logic Pro standard except the guitar which is Real Guitar from MusicLab where I have programmed the strumming myself as none of the standard patterns appealed to me.

@ihussain. I am happy it met your taste. To get the harp sound I used guitar chords strummed slowly and then changed it to harp. Worked pretty well.

@pinkyrv @LarsJacobsen thanks smiley

Epic, awesome, outstanding, masterfully well done smiley I love the way the strings appears in the middle and give over to the piano. I feel the great work that's behind this music, surely many hours spent finding the melody, the arrangements, mixing all the tracks, giving emphasis to some parts. Great composition Kenneth smiley

Amazing piece and arrangement!

Great use of strings, especially the cello solo which is utterly brilliant

The thought of 70s great western is beautifully evoked here

This turned out very well for your largest project. Doing something of this size takes a lot of work but in the end it is so rewarding. And I love the end where the orchestra drops out and there is the solo trumpet. Great work.

I visualize Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach in a stand off with this piece looming in the background. I just checked out a bunch of your stuff. You have a real talent for composition. Very epic and cool!

as the song played, i could picture bits of different movie scenes based on your theme. i think it's cool when instrumental music can evoke images like that for me. it adds to the experience.

I am deeply touched how well you have received this music and all the kind words. You are such fine musicians so your words mean a lot to me. Especially when it is something I have put a lot of effort in. Should you listen to my next piece do not get disappointed. It is a quicly made pop thing where the lyrics are the focus and not the composition. I will for sure be back with more bigger compositions in future. But I also like to make small simple things to make you all smile smiley

Kenneth I have finally got round to listening, due to busy schedule, and the work you have put into the dynamic phrasing and production is paying dividends. Lovely melody with the all important harmonic counter point. The sound is grand and much can be accomplished with logics instruments if you know how smiley

Instrumentation is spot on. Now to open up the chordal string spacing and voice leading with moving background lines would add a dimension.

Well done

Kenneth, one technique I have learned in Logic lately is how easy it is to apply crescendos and decrescendos by editing velocities. Expanding the dynamic range would help really open up the wide landscape. I think there is at least one spot in this fabulous tune which represents a stampede, or chase on horseback, and should be uptempo, as in a gallop.

Well done.

I could easily see this as part of a western movie soundtrack. Missing a bit of the lower end but still evokes emotion.

@KennethLavrsen Just listened to your piece again and it seems to get better every time. In my previous comments I didn't mention your picture; Monument Valley is where they made a ton of western movies and I think John Wayne and John Ford (director) made their "cavalry trilogy" of 3 movies there. A great piece of music and a great selection for a picture.
