  1. I have listen over and over again my own piece and I dont really find any problem with those measures 23 and the recap. I'm going to try to explain to you why (Im not fluent in english). Measure 23 can't be a dominant function chord because I dont want a "easy" transition to the 24+ measures. About the recap, my works are inspired on mozart/beethoven classicism where the recaps where oftenly used, not only because they wanted to express something in particular, but mostly to create a structure that allows the music to travel to another place. That's what I wanted to do. Its a way to make me able to create a structured short duration music, and to me it sounds ok. I know I have to make music according to the listeners, but if I dont like it in the first place, what's the point? I never had composing classes so your professional criticism is very important to me, I may not change this particular piece but now I will take more care doing recaps and transitions. Best regards!
  2. I understand what you are saying, but I cant agree on you because of two aspects. First of all, it didn't bother me at all when I first listen it because it was really the way I wanted to sound. Secondly, the anxiety title does not refer entirely to the more animated middle section, but to the harmonic variations and extremelly anoying repetitions on different octaves like the final bars. That recap is just a musical technical I use to write my pieces with short duration, so It does not influentiates that much the anxiety theme.
  3. I have never thought about that! The fact that the recap is calm was suposedly to make a contrast with the acrobatic stuf before, but maybe I didn't express that contrast as I wanted to. I would not use arpeggio either because then I would have to rewrite 35 and 36 bar which I dont want to because they are supposed to be like that to create a more "classical" effect! I will certainly look at those bars and try to find an alternative! Thank you for your opinion! Best regards!
  4. You are right the 23 to 24 is a little too much, but I dont want to use G7 because it would be too classic, I will have to find another transition chord. The 24 compass is not playable because this music was not to be played. When I composed this piece I wasn´t expecting for someone to play because Im not a professional composer I didn't have composing classes either, so it was just a musical experiment. If someone ever wants to played it I will rearrange that part! Thank you a lot for your feedback, Best regards!
  5. Im sorry for the dynamics and the articulation. I have a very low quality writing program and if I write dynamics or articulations the midi file will decrease its quality and therefore a awfull create a even lower quality mp3. In my next piano works I will try to add dynamics! Thanks for your feedback!
  6. Actually I think the octaves at some point were exagerated, but good rhythm construction. I dont feel the melody travelling as much I think it should be but some chord progressions were very good, specially that part when the octaves stop. Good job and continue composing!
  7. Hello, I would like to share with you a short piano piece I did some time ago. In this work I tried to write with some classical construction with my own ideas, which makes it a not serious piece. I would apreciate some feedback Thank you!
  8. I dont really care about opus numbers but I have to agree with opaqueambiguity. About the music, I think it doesn't have a well definied charachter. For example the first repetition on the 2 transformation, it's a very odd passage from Am to CM in that part. If you wanted to do that on purpose I just dont get the point but its my bad then. But I think in general the three transformations are very well structured but in my opinion, the musical ideas should be better worked/thought to give a better defined charachter. Its just an amateur opinion, dont take it too seriously, and I dont regret hearing those 3 pieces ;) Best Regards
  9. Brilliant, one of the best pieces I've seen here soo far. The way harmony travells through the music is unique and well constructed. I really enjoyed the use of the dynamics.
  10. Hello, this is my second post and my most recent music on the theme Non-sense. This is not to be taken seriously but as a musical parody, I aprecciate if you give me your feedback!
  11. experimental

    I would rate like a 5,5 (0-10) There were good melodic themes but I dont know how they fit with the rest of the music. Also you abruptly changed chords to one note severall times which annoyed me so much Maybe with less dissonances and strange rhytms choices this could be a game music! Best regards
  12. Opaqueambiguity I aprecciate your feedback. I have other works on this style if you want to follow just to give me your opinion because i want to compose better and I could use constructive opinions! I agree with you, I just dont think if what you didnt like I made it that way on purpose. Thank to all the other feedbacks, I dont know if the muffled sound quality has to do with this web player or my soundfont. I have four more works at my blog http://antimusicale.blogspot.pt/ and I'm composing more this next days. Thank you to all I look foward also to listen to your works! Best regards!
  13. Did you read the descripition? Im not trying to make random dissonances like most of the modern composers do, I actually want to people fell akward, I'm going to be honest with you, I dont like to compose those modern musics in where composers try to express themselves by writing random notes and chords just because they were felling it. I rather prefer to show a dark side of music, maintain a "reasonable" structure from classicism or romantism but then add dissonances. Look for Mozart's Musical Joke in F. Im trying to do the same but worst. If you take this too seriously, you wont understand it. Try to think it as a musical joke! Best regards
  14. I do not apreciate this genre of music, however you managed to create a good ambiance. I dont understand why you apologised for the dissonances in the flute, I think its the oposite. The flute should be a little more dissonance if you wanted to create a flute/piano dialogue. For example the 7 arpeggio in the flute its very off compared with the rest of the music. Its just a opinion and do not take it very seriously because I dont really understand this modern style ;)
  15. Hello everyone, This is my very first post here on youngcompers. I would like to have your feedback on one of my latest music "broken" which is a very, very short instumental music. This piece is part of my new project called "Non-sense" where I try to push music to the absurd and unbearable levels, but still maintain a musical structure. I hope you like it!
