Classical or Electronica?
I'm a musician trying to define my music. It's classically influenced, but it's all electronic with the exception of one of the songs on my new album. You can check out my stuff on youtube if you want to see what I'm talking about. I'm just looking to find out what I should label this stuff as. Any feedback about the music I've composed would be greatly appreciated as well. Thanks in advance.
You can find my videos on youtube by searching for masterofthemood. The songs I need help with are 'The Battle REMIX', 'By The Light Of The Moon', and 'Rugiada Di Montagna'.

Hmmm. The music sounded good to me but I don't really get what you mean by electronic. They sounded like MIDI files to me, particularly "Rugiada Di Montagna". I think they would sound a lot better if they were just performed by actual musicians.
I guess it would help if you expanded on what you meant by electronic, like what you used to actually recorded those songs.

Before you experiment further with a fusion between classical and electronica, I would suggest doing the following since my brother is a musician as well. He recently set up a rack system, PC, and Keyboard combo. Mind you, my stuff isn't nearly top of the line, but it's good enough for me to record my practice sessions to send to my brother for feedback. This is due to him still giving me lessons (sort of speak) and him and I corresponding through him giving me advice based on my progression on certain pieces:
Recording Interface: M-Audio FireWire 1814 Computer Recording Interface - bought due to brother's advice
Software: Propellerhead REASON 4.0 Music Production Software - given to me by my brother last time he visited
Computer: A Dell Dimension 5100 modified by my brother last time he visited
Keyboard: Kurzweil SP88X - My only high-priced item because I wanted the weighted keys on it to be as close to an actual piano as possible w/o spending an arm/leg on modifying my existing piano.
Sampling software - Quantum Leap Pianos Virtual Instruments
I'm not saying you should go out and go nuts on a new system to re-record your compositions, but if you wanted to make a new arrangement of an already existing song with your own original touches, might as well use more organic sampling and what you would consider electronic-type sounds. Then we would have a clearer picture of what you're trying to do instead of what (excuse me if this sounds judgmental, but I'm trying to be honest) ring tones for a mobile that came out 5 years ago.
