    • Composition Help
      Hey, I just started composing a little while ago and was hoping to find some advice on a piece I'm working on. I would really appreciate  advice on improving and developing the piece further. Thanks!!!  Hopefully it's not too bad. 
    • Rondo In G
      Thank you very much. There are two themes chasing each other around, not unlike a snake biting its own tale.  it's very compressed. I don't know what else to call it but a Rondo. Thanks for listening, Brian!
    • First time composer.
      Can't hear it on spotify. Why not post an MP3 here That's usually how it works.
    • Traveling a Mighty Rocky Road
      I listened to this a few times, trying to get my bearings as to its origin and destination. It's distinctly American, and one film in particular gradually popped into my head about Appalachia that used similar - almost identical in style - music to fix the viewer precisely in America. The film was Cold Mountain and the scene was in church, and what they sang wasn't Irish exactly, but something different In my upper level class in college I convinced my English professor to give me a private course designed by the two of us, to present the Civil War in terms of its literature. English was my major. Actually, I have two degrees, music and English. there were other stories I favored over Cold Mountain but she held firm on its integrity. And I began to appreciate the stark poetry therein. Have you read this book? Anyway, this was sealed by the book's almost Christ like depiction of the cretin whose own salvation came from his fiddle that he made out of the wood that came from the hills. In those days everything you produced came from a gift you could not control, let alone conceive of. That's what your chorale reminded me of.
