    • Rondo In G
      This is an etude in the form of a Rondo. I don't make too much of it except that it addresses the topic a of recent thread here about 'how to introduce asymmetrical phrases into your writing to give it interest and unpredictability, which are pretty much the same thing. The techniques I used are a malleable time signature (2/4), truncation of theme, inversion of theme, pointillism of theme, fooling the listener to hear the strong beats as weak beats and vice verse. And there is something like a Stretto, but not quite. Where the last bar of a line forms the first bar of the next line, effectively melding/confusing a proper cadence with a new line.

      I like it too. When you say 'try something more daring' do you mean something more challenging for the players or for the listener?
    • Cover of "Agape"
      Hello, I want to make a piano cover of the song Agape by Bear's Den. I've already looked in the internet for a music sheet but no results. I found a video on youtube of a cover which sounds perfect, however I can't see properly which chords he's playing and there's no music sheet provided. This is the video So please, if you could help me I'd be really grateful. Thank you
    • Fugue in C minor
      True. I suppose that whatever scale you are working with, whether it is a regular major key, or a church mode, or whole tones, or twelve-tones, or any of the other countless possibilities, each has its own challenges. But I am very glad that I live in a time when the possibilities of scales that can be used is almost endless. It allows us to express ideas in our music that were not possible for a Baroque composer.

      I can only say this is a gift... I can't comment on technical issues, you're a great composer. So I can say if I like it or not. Yes, a lot... our harmonic language is fresh. The score is a plus plus, I learn looking at it.
