This is wonderful!

Are there any artists/composers/genres that particularly influence your music?

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your kind reply. I can say I'm more influenced by the Impressionists. I try to paint pictures with my pieces. My favorites are Stravinsky, Debussy, Ravel, Grofe, Copland, Holst, etc.

That is some beautiful composition there, it reminds me very much of a video game called Final Fantasy X. Absolutely beautiful work here!

I also made a piece for this challenge:

This one is for those who also suffer in the beauty and tranquility of summer. Where nothing but pollen attacks!

and for the lucky few who enjoy summer and don't have these problems I made this version:

Jonnie91,

These are great. Although I don't suffer from attacking pollen, I still really like the Summer Sneeze track. A version of this would make an excellent allergy medication commercial spot.

I'm so glad you said that Paula's piece reminded you of Final Fantasy X. I was secretly hoping Nobuo Uematsu was one of Paula's influences!

Wow! I am truly flattered. I had not heard of him so I ran around the internet finding his works. I am out of touch with the gaming media and I had no idea how expansive the genre is and Uematsu is quite prolific! Thank you for introducing me to his music!
