I wrote this piece with the idea of showing it in a few different halls, however, once I was into the process, I realized each room, studio or hall had their own strengths and weaknesses, and therefor an appropriate piece for each hall or room would of worked better. Next time. ;) 

 Anyway, this is the result of the same piece, still shows some differences. For the 3rd one, this orchestration is a little dense for this room with a remarkable acoustic, so not an ideal piece for NRF Hall. 

1-The Sage Gateshead - Hall One

2-Grosser Saal Stage

3-The Sage Gateshead - Northern Rock Foundation Hall

Hi Guy,

The next remarkable piece from your hand. Guy, you never stop writing such beautiful music, fortunately! Thanks for sharing this with us.

I must admit, that I personally prefer the NRF Hall, strangely enough maybe, since I feel it is written in the atmosphere of movies I have seen in my youth. I guess in that period there wasn't much overdone reverb at all, so I just like this version so much. I regard this piece as very intimate obviously.

And, I think that that this specific MIR venue is one of the best ever made.........

 I like this piece!  Also, oddly enough I seemed to like the third venue best and it does sound somewhat more traditional cinematic somehow as Erik mentioned.  That trumpet solo sounds great.

Thanks Erik and William!

Yes, I also liked NRF.

For the record it's not trumpet but cornet.Smile   Cornet has always been one of my fav VSL instrument.

The cornet, of course!  Yes, I love that, one of the most spectacular of the VSL instruments.  I noticed the sound on that is like the bell is pointing right at you in a hall, and you can hear the articulations very clearly, though it sounds perfectly in context with the rest of the sound.

Hey Guy,

Did you use purely the room for reverb, no other reverbs like MIRacale?

Just curious as I'm about to buy one of the roompacks ^^ The Grosser Saal sounds just fantastic.

The composition is gorgeous too
