  1. Hello all, i am new to the forum and I have enjoyed reading everyone's posts so far! Here is a composition of mine written for full orchestra. It has a bit of an old school film music style to it. Thank you for listening!
  2. A small thing I did while studying for my exams. This is my second composition written for orchestra (modified orchestral ensemble). The mixing is terrible, I know. It was really random and all crazy, so please forgive me... Thank you for listening and wish all of you a nice, peaceful, warm New Year filled with creativity, brilliant ideas, and wonderful music!
  3. Here is a one-movement piece for piano and orchestra. In the instrumentation, I added my favorite instrument which is used for the counter-melody, the euphonium. There are two melodic ideas in this composition, the fanfare theme and the "lady Toya" motif. I hope you'll enjoy. Musically Yours, Chad "Sir Wick" Hughes
  4. I was going to copyright this piece but I don't really know if it's good enough to do that quite yet. I was looking for feedback on it so I can change it before it gets properly cemented the way it is. Specifically, the basic low strings part and the countersubject I wasn't sure how well they were implemented. Thanks a lot and enjoy!
  5. I arranged this (with permission) from a piece a friend of mine wrote for solo piano.
  6. Here is my suite in nine-parts about Dante's Inferno and the circles of Hell he describes. I rewrote the entire suite, as I had previously written in only six days. Much of the suite is different, and this time I included a brief introduction about every piece and the suite as a whole to give you, the listener a better idea of what is going on. Let me know what you think!
  7. Variation II.mp3 Variations on a Theme By J. Brahms.pdf This is my entry to the Fall 2016 Competition! The theme in question is from the famous finale of Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. 1. Please see the attached notes for more information about the piece. For your reference, here is a snippet of the theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhHb-62BfpI Thanks for listening, and feel free to share any feedback!
  8. Hi, I've discovered this forum a few days ago and I though that I could join it to share my work here, and the most important, have some real feedback from my songs (because you know, not everybody will give feedback as good as given by people who also make music) I'd like to note one thing before you listen to the song. Actually I don't have any sort of musical preparation, none than self taught, and so I don't know a lot about pentagrams and all those things, but other than that, I can understand most of the things related to the music itself Without further delay, here's the song, I hope you like it (oh and sorry if bad english, I'm spanish )
  9. This piece was one of the pieces written for the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra. It wasn't the original piece to be played for that concert, so when I decided to change it had to be completed very quickly; I wrote this piece in 5 days. It's inspired by the otherworldliness of the International World's Fair in Paris of 1867; the first movement, "Ballet" contrasts the second "Le festival sauvage" in the initial discovery of the new world, versus the wild fun to be had, and the return home. It has its problems as a result of its quick deadline, but I think it's one of the most programmatic and passionate things I've written.
  10. This is an overture that I made dedicated to the state of Washington, it is called "Washingtonian Overture". As i'm only 15 (soon to be 16), I haven't had any professional training on music composition, so I would appreciate some feedback on this. Thank you for listening!

  11. Thought I'll post something while I work on The Eighth Insignia. This is very old before I knew anything about anything and it was actually a competition entry that was hosted on RPG Revolution before the forums closed. Out of six it got third place...don't ask me how. The second one "Symphonies of our Destruction" was done before Sentient Enchanter. At the time I was angry at how crazy our societies have become and that hugely inspired this piece. If the world dies, I wanted this song to play in its aftermath.
  12. My first time using Stormdrum 2 by East West to produce those epic drums. Tried to do something different with those I haven't done before.
  13. Just trying to work around different sounds. Nothing too fancy I guess
  14. I'm reposting a piece that I posted here in 2013...one of the first pieces I posted on this forum. This was composed for the March-April (when we had bi-monthly competitions); the theme I believe was to write something based on mythology. Not to brag and boast, but I won that competition. I chose to write a nocturne representing the Greek goddess of night, Nyx. I was inspired by the great French impressionists, and their influence clearly shows in this piece. The audio and score are a little messy, since the original file will not cooperate with the new finale, so I'll play around with cleaning both things up. Enjoy!
  15. This is my submission for the Summer Competition. Please read the Program Notes for further explanation. As usual, comments and feedback is absolutely welcome! Thanks in advance...
  16. Ouverture in D major.mid
  17. This is something for a project a friend and I are working on. I don't have all the film yet, but I've written out the themes and titles for the film. This is the "turning point" of the villain in the film, where he unleashes and lets loose. Since I don't have all the film, I haven't quite finished the track, but some feedback and thoughts would be nice. Mixing isn't my strong point, but let me know what you like and what I could do better! Thanks, y'all. Gustav Johnson p.s. The inspiration for this one came from a friend's bed-frame which produced 2 distinct pitches, so never stop looking for inspiration in the weird stuff!
  18. A fiddling piece for string orchestra with an adventurous twist to it. Yeehaw! :D
  19. Greetings Earthlings, Not having enough spare time and having to work for a living, regrettably I now have a collection of broken computers, a large stash of hard drives containing audio, notes, utility programs, samples; a lot. All my installation media too... I haven't suffered data loss thankfully, but the quantity is almost unmanageable. I'm hoping to have things organised at some time. I'm sorry not to have enough resources currently. I can still do some solo piano and suchlike and I will try to do some before long, but I have at least dug out a 45-second snip of a piece I was writing. This is the introduction. I did have around 1:35 of it done, but I can't find that. After the 45 seconds, there was, let's say, a sudden dramatic shift of tonality, and of mode (i.e. different scalar intervals). I look forward to continuing.
  20. Here's my 1st composition, which is based on a story I made up of a band of folk musicians gathering together to play music. I wrote music before; this one happened to be what I consider the first "complete" composition which can be called that. This is a gift to my middle school music teacher, who is really fond of fiddling music. Please share me your thoughts on this if you can!
  21. My first orchestral piece finally done! Opus 12 is written for modified orchestral ensemble consisting of : Piano, Woodwinds : flute, oboe, A clarinet Brass : French horn Percussion instruments : glockenspiel, vibraphone, tubular bells, triangle Strings : violins 1, violins 2, violas, violoncellos and contrabasses. and harp. Composition consists of first part (moderato - E major/C sharp minor), second part (F major/D minor) and third part - modified first part. Since I'm a complete amateur high school student, any helpful hints and comments are very welcomed! Score in PDF format coming soon.

  22. This is the last work I finished before my computer sadly crashed (though hopefully I will have it back up an running soon). It is a simple melancholic waltz which uncharacteristic of me, I wrote very quickly (less than a week) and much of it away from the computer. I'm fan of the Eastern European Romantic composers and Dvorak in particular and this was in part influenced by his Slavonic Dances. I hope to add at least two other waltzes to compete a set of at least three.
  23. This was the second piece I composed for my degree after the Choral Fantasy, but I don't feel like it's quite up to par. I feel like it's mostly there but there are things that need to be cut in certain areas and/or reworked. This is intended to be a second movement for a larger work. I'll post both the Sibelius Essentials and the live recording from my recital but the live recording has a considerable amount of errors in this one, so do keep that in mind. I would love to know what works and what doesn't with this piece. I can't seem to decide if I like how lush it is in the beginning, or if I need to keep it more simple and make it more harmonically dense later on. And then there are some developmental parts which I'm just not quite satisfied with. I decided to post this here though instead of in the Incomplete Works forum because I feel like any cuts and changes I would make wouldn't be all that major. Please let me know what you think! Suite For String Orchestra Mov. II (c) 2013 Jair W. Crawford
  24. As I slowly upload everything again, I bring my largest work up-to-date, my second symphony. It is in four movements and lasts about 25 minutes. It was composed in 2008 for the 50th anniversary of Slovene radio symphony orchestra and was selected by artistic advisors of the orchestra to be performed throughout 2008/09 season. So premiere took place on 23rd April 2009. I adopted some formal approach which is characteristic to late-romantic symphonies - frequent use of the basic motif throughout other movements, rich and colourful orchestration, free contemporary music language which uses different techniques at the same time: tonality vs atonality, aleatorics vs clear pulsation - clear melodies vs aleatoric counterpoint. I wish you pleasant listening!
