Fascinating. I really like your take on minimalist techniques. I have tried a little writing in that style before, but never enough to make anything presentable. All the different techniques you can find in a minimalist piece are put to really good use here. Great job.
Nevermind. I don't use firefox, so this particular player sometimes messes up for me, but for some reason it took way more attempts than normal to listen to this one all the way through. Now that I've heard it all, let me add that the transition to Em worked really well. I've been listening to all the stuff you put up on here, and I can tell you're learning a lot. So congrats!
I cannot get the audio to play past 0:28. But the music I heard was pretty pleasant, and I got where you were going with it.
As far as countermelodies go, Luis gave a good example to study. I would recommend spending some time studying counterpoint if you get a chance. Not that you have to follow all the rules in your compositions, of course. But those kinds of exercises are good at getting you to think about how good melodies fit together. It all really depends on what it is about writing the melodies together that makes it hard on you.
That picture looks like Pyramid Head with a guitar, haha.
Anyway, I kind of expected this to have a little more contrast in terms of splitting the measure and dynamic range, but it wasn't as potent as I would have hoped. Similarly, the beginning seemed to lack impact for me (I think it was the sound of the soprano).
But other than that, it had a nice atmosphere, and great sounds in the bass as Luis said, I just was expecting a little more spectacle, perhaps.
