Full samples would be needed for the evaluation. If you don't want to share more for the moment, you can send full samples directly to the Symphonic Team Members by private message.

Hi there, Yes, I can do that.

Where do I find the names of the various team members?

Or would it be better to email the links to your band.submissions@gmail.com  mail address.

Also, would you require the entire album on the stream player, or just selected tracks? Either is possible?

Many thanks

The Symphonic Prog Team members are: Ivan_Melgar_M (Ivn Melgar-Morey) , AtomicCrimsonRush (Scott Tuffnell) , and toroddfuglesteg .

A streaming of the full album for them would be perfect, if possible. Cheers!

I don't know the process of course, but since it's now been two months since the formal submission to the symphonic prog team, I'm kinda assuming this has fallen by the wayside Disapprove

Sorry Mark, but I had my INBOX full and kept bouncing here is what I see from your page and I'm copying from the Symphonic thread:

About Fantasy Bridge:


I been listening the 3 full tracks and the 7 samplers (90 seconds not the best, but gives you an idea), and this is my opinion:

1.- Fantasy Bridge (Full Track): Loved it, but the extended use of Mellotron and the sound of the keyboards remind me more of Neo Prog.

2.- Children of a Forgotten Sun: More like Heavy Prog or Crossover...Good Moog BTW

3.- Dawn: New Agey....I believe there is more in this track than the 90 seconds can show.

4.- Don't Give Up on Love: Neo Prog in the vein of thelater Marillion albums

5.- Endless Ocean: Piano melodic ballad, very Neo Prog IMO

6.- Autumn Rain (Full Track): Reminds me of Toto with a hint of ASIA and Alan Parsons Project

7.- Quiesence: The sample sounds very jazzy meets electronic (More APP sound)}

8.- Together in the Shores of Time: Sounds like a mainstream ballad to me.

9.- Ode to Joy (Full Track): Nice Beethoven rendition, some parts remind me of ELP (Rondo), others to Joy by  The Ventures

 10.- A Day by the Sea: Reminds me of GTR

Of course that with full version could change a bit, but I don't believe too much, already have a general idea.

It's very good stuff, IMO closer to:

  1. Crossover
  2. Neo Prog
Sorry for the delay, but I had my inbox full for some time.

Ivn


Good luck with the teams, I believe it's great music for Prog Archives.

Cheers

Ivn

just a question how much of the instruments are played by you and how many of the instruments are produced from studio, couse i feel it is a litle stackato and it does not sound like a band rehersed or played gig,

just wonder if it was all done on a keybord or that you did all the instruments yourself, not that i doubt your multi-instrumentality, you might be very skilled on every standard rock instrument,
