The Fool

4 posts in this topic

This piece is supposed to be about the Tarot card : "The Fool".

It is an old piece, from around the year 2000, and I think it is one of the better of my old pieces.

I usually like my old pieces. Although I am beginning to see their weaknesses.

They are very different from the musicpieces I make now.

They have a strange kind of unpredictability in them, that I like.

The inconsistent eighth note pattern is kind of distracting, but that has no bearing on the actual piece.
The F#dim held for two bars is a little strange in the first phrase is a little bit off putting, and sounds non-functional, even though it resolves later, but by that point it's a little bit too late, the sentiment is there.
In the polyrhythmic part, the only chord that was really off was the E - G - A - B arpeggiation. It's just the spacing that was a little weird.
I would have had appreciated more variation in the progression as well. It goes on a little bit too long in the same way. 
It does capture what you want I think, though, at least in principle. The sound effect use was interesting too.

Hi Monarcheon

>The inconsistent eighth note pattern is kind of distracting, but that has no bearing on the actual piece.

I think this can be blamed on the midifile. For some reason the rhythm is a bit untight when you use a mouse to write the notes 

instead of recording the music. I don´t know if this has something to do with the music program I have used.

I don´t understand what you mean here.

Yes,I have a tendency to use the same chordprogression over and over in my music.

I don´t think it is needed to change the chordprogression in this case. It does´nt bother me.

Another tendency I have is to write in minor keys. About 80% of my music is written in minor keys.

I have a feeling this may change. I am a little tired of composing sad music.

I agree with Monarcheon. Just to add that this piece could be more melodic. You could add a melody on top.
