The Chambers Discovered(soundtrack)
Hi Coach Andy! :)
I do believe I have some catching up to do, when it comes to listening to your wonderful music... This soundtrack, to me, as I listen, I feel it's strength, power, and undeniable tenderness... awe, this is beautiful! You have done very well, my friend! :) =Bravo=
Beautiful! Grim, but beautiful, very impressed once more with your production and performance, Andy. You've certainly taken me "there", and left my ears filled with the grim reality of holocaust. Outstanding!
Andy..Im not one to know alot about the delivery of orchestral music apart from that it needs to come from the soul... This is up there with your high standards.... Great quality and strong sound and a sense of direction.... Thanks for sharing, hope your well?.. Dave
Andy, you know I loved Chambers (I even bought it on CD) and this wraps it up well.
This section is pretty special to me. Brought a tear to my eye and a lump to my throat. I'm 36, my grandad has been dead for 30 years but I can still clearly remember him telling me about liberating Belsen when I was just a lad, that was 31 years ago and it is still imprinted on my brain. Send me a PM if you want a full recount of his story if it'll help you in any way.
Anyways, back to the music. I have only two minor complaints (I always have a complaint) its too short and I can think of one or two emotions that weren't addressed in the piece but that's just being fussy really. I understand that your piece isn't going to fully mould into every listener's preconceived ideas of what would be felt by the liberating armies.
Arrangementwise though, its completely flawless apart from the length. Every instrument is clear as a bell, every dynamic is felt. Your choice of sounds and the way that you use them is very professional sounding.
The mix is pretty much perfect too. No distortion noted via laptop, desktop through a big amplifier, or through headphones, so all is good. I'd personally like more oomph in the percussion but I'm just a drum nut at heart, so feel free to blindly ignore that suggestion.
So, overall, everything is pretty much perfect, apart from the length (can you tell I'd like this to be longer Andy?) and I have to say that yet again, you have wowed me with your ability. As you know, you're one of a handful of people on here that I truly admire, and I'm very pleased with your latest offering, although an extra minute would be nice :P perhaps an extra minute with some anger in it? Only pulling your leg. It is a quality piece as it is.
Holy smackin' cows, Andy. This is clear as smack! From the beginning the string sound so 'BLAM', emotional. It's like the atmosphere is being sucked into my lungs like smoke.
You have a lot of high pitch frequencies but they're not doing anything but sounding good. No distortion to be found and the ensemble can be heard in it's entirety.
This is an excellent way to portray the story you have through music. The violin sounds magnificient along with the heavy toms. They sound like they could have been deeper or fuller but hey, everything sounds great!
All in total, man, it sounds fantastically clear and crisp. Your usual sound. I was a tad surprised about the toms/drums/big drums not being as big as I'm used to from you but they still fit in the mix and they sound fine. You know me... lol... just a detailed listener. No harm intended. I'd keep this, though. It's a very good portrait of a very powerful and important event. You could put it in a movie! Have a great day!
Wow what a moving piece. I can't say enough about this one. Just beautiful.

Sound marvellous Andy and totally fitting with the subject in hand!! It clearly spells out the real story behind the music!!! It has excellent potential for a score of a great film documenting the real story!!! Thanks for the listen and the journey mate!! Rated!!!!
Bravo Andy,know its perfect.The motu software will be loading on comp next week Andy then will tell you the info.Sounds great on there site,thanks for asking.Rated
Ditto all I have ever said about this....cannot praise u highly enough
STUNNING Andy..the depth of the peice brings over the horrors of war superbly...you area true talent! RRRRR
This is good stuff Andy... This is what I wanted to do but I just couldnt get my self motivated nor could afford the right Software until now... But This is great work The strings in this are to die for dude. And the story that you are telling is a dark story in our history and you have told it through an artistic sound very delicately. Wonderful piece of Orchestral music. Thumbs up and have a rate too.
This a really well executed piece Andy...very emotive,but tastefully done.
Great orchestration and arrangement and it flows nicely too.
Not sure what you've used to create it...is it not midi?
Very nice piece though.
This is a very difficult subject to approach. There is no darker, more shameful time in Human History and that is saying something. I think the way you use percussion in this piece is brilliant - there are no pretty cadances and sweet resolutions and phrases are often brutally punctuated.
I also think that you have avoided making the piece so sad and gloomy that you fall in to the trap of making it tedious and boring - but it moves along in a very ominous and subtle way. Masterful.
Beautifully emotive and production suits this piece perfectly. -rl
Just love it Andy!! The sorrow and emotion are captured very elequently....
Well done at creating a moving stirring piece.The solo was so moving and sad ,Andy can you re-edit the solo at 3.10 and 3.14 the notes were very short.Im saying this because its so nearly perfect.I want to enjoy the track so please do it for Tony/Deggy and Mr Slip.Bravo if it stays,what you have made is very dramatic and clever to say the least.
My ears aint as good as the lads here as I didnt really spot anything obviously wrong. For me its a continuous theme of amazement whenever I jump on board an AndyF track. A big subject full of raw emotion for so many on all sides of line but one you deliver with sensitivity and thoughtfulness. Tony's Dad & Co will remember all too well what its like to witness the horror of what one man can do to another here is the flip side how one man can command such respect from another.
Very Nice Piece Andy,Draws you in . I see what Tony means , blending of the notes for a smoother ride into this very moving piece..Otherwise Great work Andy , nothing that cant be fixed. Rated My Friend
Very moving piece, however, there are quite a few rather obvious editing and looping points later on in the track which tend to spoil the mood. Some overlapping of midi notes is required to give continuity. Rated for the accurate mood of the piece
Hi! I have been interested in music since an early age and now enjoy making tracks with the various software available.Such as Edirol, EWQLSO and my new addition, Miroslav Philharmonik which has some strings to die for, all this sequenced in Fruity Loops. I now seem to concentrate on composing Classical Soundtrack material. I also enjoy rearranging tracks in collaboration with the awesome talent on show here. Please stop by anytime and enjoy!The Chambers album has been accepted in the Music Dept of the National Library of Israel and hopefully will be added to the holocaust museum there.
My first album STAY with ME can be bought here: http://www.cdbaby.com/andrewfoyston and the latest BEYOND POLARIS at www.cdbaby.com/andrewfoyston2.
CHAMBERS is a trilogy in music with the Holocaust as the theme. All can be seen at www.andrewlfoyston.com I am also a proud member of DARD PRODUCTIONS a collaboration team www.soundclick.com/dardproductions whose members span across 3 continents.

I really enjoyed the melody. Loved the flute.... more than the bass :)
If I had my music software working, I could put my finger on it, but overall, just loved it!
Seeing as how I have been completely laid up for the past two doing doing nothing but honking into a handkerchief and spluttering like a man drowning (Ed: just a seasonal cold, tut tut poor reviewer), it seems appropriate that I should come riding back into the fray on orchestral wings. On second thought, after that sentence, maybe I should just go back to bed. Andrew Foyston (to give
Valour and Honour – Andy F- Essence Review
Well, what can I say? It’s a huge track and no one can deny! Huge sounds, very dramatic indeed!
I’ll try to skip the obvious comment of “this should be in a film” because it is obviously your intention Andy, to make your tunes fire the imagination and conjure up all kinds of themes and scenes to which your tracks could be impl
This an immensely dramtic and emotional piece of music. It's actually difficult to think where to start. The beginning is probably the best place.The haunting melody at the beginning truly sums up the emotion I can only imagine would be felt by prisoners being taken to the gas chambers. The bells add a nice touch, hinting to everyone that death is close. You can almost smell the mud and
Andy wondered if i was up for classical pieces when he submitted this for review! Good news is, yes I am!
I have always loved orchestration, as does everyone if you really think about it. Whes used to it's full scope, 'classical' music fully captures and envokes all the feelings and meaning that modern music strives to recreate in different ways.
Andy's 'The Last Galleon' does just that, the sus
T'was brass monkey weather time, three years ago, I reviewed a track called Di Da Mix (October 2003) and although liking its content (a little), disliking its production (even littler) and thoroughly berated the composer to get serious about his sound. AndyF (yep, you guessed it) obviously did because as many of you know, he's been in here plugging away ever since and btw, he did get s
Currently number one in MP3 Unsigned's Official chart, DHGC is a collaboration from two artists I have come to know very well, one for a very long time and one I've met within the last year. I first met AndyF a million years ago on another site when I reviewed his first track Di Da Mix (October 2003) and liked it. That hasn't always been the case, not because Andy isn't a good musician
Call me a sycophant if you like, I just don't care. I am bowled over by the undoubted talents of Andy F, and his latest track, Tears, is no exception.
Building his orchestration around the superb vocals of Amy Caldwell, the loving care and attention given to this crisp and professional work is evident from the outset.
It's always easy to eulogise over great songs and, naturally, personal taste c

I have known Andy for sometime now , and his music has improved over the last year or so, he has this wonderful way of creating excellent , smooth , Well Produced Classical pieces that have a lot of emotion and very moving ...Take a listen to " Memories across the sea "the string work , t
ONE NOTE FIRST - “Although I am not totally into classical music, this song certainly has made me become interested in it. Fantastic score, fantastic instruments, fantastic feel to the song – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
Starting off smooth, the piano work done at the beginning is great, although could have been uplifted a bit to hear it a bit better, but with all the other instrument work
