  1. I don't remember a piece for prepared piano in the forum... Perhaps there is. I've been studying and experimenting... I know this is not a "standard" to listen to. In fact, I think prepared piano deals with rhythm and colors. But I like it. This is not my piano, impossible in an upright. I tried to put some objects but it's quite hard and they fall down. So it's a virtual piano. LABYRINTH.pdf
  2. Hey so this piece is really dumb but I really like it for some reason. Enjoy!
  3. Hi all, This is the third movement of the Seizoenen* Suite for solo Piano, which is called Zomer.** *Seasons. **Summer. The Summer is for me the period, when I can relax. In this period we namely have a long school break (6 / 7 weeks). I wanted to let this association with the Summer sound in the music. Feedback would be very nice! Maarten M.Bauer - Suite for Piano''Seizoenen'', Op.28 III. Zomer.pdf
  4. Hello, This is my lattest piano work, composed in january. I wanted write an animated piece, inspired by popular music of Portugal, so it is very tonal probably one of the most tonal pieces I made. I would apreciate very much your feedback and I apologise for the lack of dynamics Thank you!
  5. Hi everyone! I wrote this piece, "Penumbra", at the request of a teacher, and I liked how it came out. The inspiration musically was based around progressive rock and jazz fusion structures and harmony. I have only a little experience with clarinet and cello, so I'm not sure whether all of the fingerings are ideal. I'd be very grateful if any players of those instruments could give me feedback on that. Penumbra.pdf Penumbra.mp3
  6. Hi everybody, The last weeks I am focussing on instrumentation and orchestration. I wanted to arrange a clear Haydn sonata for a small orchestra with 2 natural horns and 2 oboes. The full name of the sonata: Piano sonata in D major, Hob. XVI: 37. Beautiful recording by Eschenbach: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6JMbUgxq-0 I wanted to keep the atmosphere of the sonata, which is very energetic, but not complicated. Because this is for practice, I only arranged the exposition of the first movement. Score, which I used: Haydn - Piano Sonata in D Hob. XVI;37.pdf M.Bauer - Small Orchestral Arrangement for Haydn Piano Sonata Hob. XVI;37.pdf I'd love to hear your feedback! Maarten
  7. This time, I wanted to work with rhythm complexity and the mosaic form. I took a pice I had written for piano solo, which was a canon in prolatio, and I added two more voices to the canon in some partsThe piece is for two violins and piano. There are six different parts: A = 2 measures B = 8 measures C = 3 measures D = 8 measures E = 3 measures F = 4 measures The structures is as follows (written in the score): ABCDAEFCEFABDACEF Don't expect a classic binary, ternary or whatever form. This is a different (contermporary approach) where the parts are short and the mosaic is done combining them in different orders. So, the concept of variation and climax is not the classic one. Parts B and D are the more complex. The four voices (piano two single melodic lines, plus two violins) are in prolatio. The same melody is played at different rates or time signatures. These parts, although are not always consonant, are in tonal "environments": part B in Gmaj, part D in Dmaj. I wanted to focus in the rhythms. The other parts are in contrast. The texture of the piano is chordal, and tonality dissapears. Although the whole piece runs in quarter note = 78, I notated the exact relative timing for the voices in prolation. This was an observation that one of the teachers I had made, in order to make clear to each player the timing. https://soundcloud.com/user-406660501/life-in-a-nutshell LIFE IN A NUTSHELL_LH - SCORE.pdf
  8. Hello Friends, I'd like to share the composition that I finished today. So it is very fresh :) I am looking forward to receiving your feedbacks.
  9. Hello fellow composers! I'm leaving you with my newest composition - Th Ghost. It is written for piano, small string ensemble, synthesizers, and harp. I literally have no idea what I was thinking when I was writing this piece. I've never used that much dissonance or vague tonality. Partially I wanted to step back from the usual canon patterns that I tend to follow and do something unconventional. At least I've tried. It is a mostly thematic piece. I also had problems with mixing and changing dynamics/panning/EQ - I absolutely hate Logic standard pizzicato strings... Anyways, thank you for listening, and hope you enjoy this small piece just a little bit.
  10. There's not much to say about this piece, it is a three-part fugue with modest pretensions in that sweetest of keys, D minor. Like my canons the primary material is derived from encoded names in mod-7 form with free accidentals.
  11. This is my 10th soliloquy for piano. Here is the link to my 9th piano soliloquy: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t33979/soliloquy-for-piano-no-9/
  12. Piece: http://picosong.com/pYjG/ Sheet music thus far: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-WkFk0zutrdZVVtM19CaVExcmM This is a composition I am working for school and the piece is inspired by japanese, jazz and other modern piano solo music. I am in the process of writing it and would love an opinion and perhaps a few tips or pointers as to how it is going so far and potential developments later on. I am able to play it on the piano but it will require practice of sorts XD Hope you enjoy!
  13. Dear friends, I've been working on a romantic piano song for a while. I've just finished it and wanted to present you. I've been inspired by popular piano song "it's hard to say goodbye" when composing it. I really want to know the strong and weak parts of it. I will really appreciate if you take your time and send me a feedback. Best regards, Selcuk Ozer
  14. Here's a Reharmonization of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. I made it sustaining a line that is always going up in the Bass. While doing so it allows for a lot of freedom with the chords you want to use. Also, Reharmonization brings up the topic of overlistening. Two types: one that can't stand the change, and those who have heard the song a million different times and want to hear something new.
  15. This is a new little personal project I am working on. Your feedback is most appreciated. For now, I have managed to write the first piece.
  16. What do you guys think about my relatively new piano work? I greatly appreciate your time listening to it and giving your thoughts! Thank you!
  17. Hi all, I received some interesting feedback on my Melody for piano ''Winter''. One of the comments was by @Gustav Johnson. He encouraged me to compose a suite based on the seasons (Dutch: Seizoenen). The Suite is called Piano Suite ''Seizoenen.'' The Winter is the first movement and can be found here: http://www.youngcomposers.com/t34743/melody-for-piano-winter/#play.The Lente (Spring) is the second movement. I tried to imitate typical Spring elements, such as whistling birds and animals that wake up from hibernation. Feedback would be very nice! Kind regards, Maarten
  18. Hi all, Today, I finished this Melody for solo Piano. I am trying to develop my own ''voice'' and ''identity'' in music composition and I think I am on the right way... As the title is called, the inspiration of this composition is the Winter. Of course in the Dutch style: ice skating, Unox sausage, Boerenkool etc. Feedback and comment would make my Winter even better! Kind regards, Maarten
  19. Simple piece with piano + flute part playing 7 against 8, and a middle solo flute section using additive and changing rhythms and Messiaen's mode 5 in several transpositions. https://soundcloud.com/user-417172164/indigo-night
  20. Hello, I composed this piano song six months ago. I decided to share it here to get some feedback. I love this community because somene listens to my songs and share their impressions.
  21. Here's one for all the love-sick teenagers. I wanted to write something that sounded like a traditional folk song (probably originally accompanied by fiddle or guitar or some such), that was then adopted by the classical music people and rearranged for amateur singing in the parlor with piano. There are lots of nice folk tunes that are standards of recital repertoire now that started out as back porch or pub music. I spent a lot of time trying to decide how florid my imaginary later day arranger got with their piano arrangement, and ended up keeping it pretty simple for accessible parlor playing back in the days before radios. (: How did I do with my way-back machine? Happy Valentine's Day, a little late! (You'll need to open up the pdf to see the words, or you can watch the youtube below, with the score scrolling by.)
  22. Here's a fugue that I really enjoyed composing. I had so much writing it, and I hope you enjoy listening to it. The fugue is more horizontal in construction that differs from my previous attempts that is a vertical approach. There is invertible counterpoint at the 10th in it as well. It's not glorious, but it is there. Ha!
  23. This is what I see now from my window right now (well, I live in the mountains). And this is how I "feel" it with music. Yes, there are some measures (74-75...) where the flute is quite dissonant. It's not a mistake, I wanted it. For me it's beautiful (it means something, to me). link to soundcloud (mp3 player doesn't work, I'm afraid): BLOSSOM
  24. Hello all, Here is a set of solo piano pieces I've composed. They can be performed individually or as an entire group. Each particular piece pays homage to a certain musical style and/or time period. The recording here is of only a few of the movements. The score of these select movements is also attached. Please let me know if anyone is interested in playing/performing them! Thank you for listening!
  25. Here's an older work of mine that I'm thinking of writing a sequel to. I would be interested in folks' opinions about what works and what doesn't. The basic "story", such as it is, is that the three instruments are three separate characters who are constantly taunting each other. It finally gets to be too much for the piano, who slowly loses it over the course of the piece. Thanks!
