    Please consider reviewing as well as posting. Not only does it help balance the number of works on the site, but it helps you get involved! You may think you have nothing to add, but something as simple as "this was cool because of this part" or "something about 0:35 threw me off a bit" does help. Thanks!

    • Hello! I liked this piece! And yes, that motif was something that grabbed my attention really quick 😄 - I know the motif from Super Mario Bros 3 - I think it is when the magic whistle/flute is used (maybe Koji Kondo reused the motif on Zelda?). It is not nearly as noticeable on the second occurence in measure 9, perhaps because it's played in a lower octave. Maybe you could just change some detail in the beginning of measure 5, like the descending notes? Also the note A in measure 7 felt like it was not fitting with the harmonics, maybe try something more diatonic there?
    • Hey! I really like this piece. Love the harmonies all over, and the staccato rhythm of the first bars. And it's a good exercise to kill your darlings once in a while! I should do exercises like this myself   MP3     Play / pause fourths exercise 0:00     0:00 volume   > next menu   fourths exercise   > next   MP3     Play / pause fourths exercise 0:00     0:00 volume   > next menu   fourths exercise   > next
    • Love this equilibristic writing. Very high quality work, I was thrown into an adventure! It would be nice to hear this in a live performance.   One day I hope to have the same confidence as a composer.
    • Really nice piece! The harmonic progression and the voice leading really appealed to me, and that is the strength of the song, and also the rythmic texture. I see that you both begin and end with the tonic in the first part of the piece, maybe you could try having a cadence to the dominant before the repeat? From the middle of the piece, you might want to vary it a little bit. Maybe switch up the melody, so that it has another tonal center. Or you can modulate to something more remote, which can serve the purpose of variation as well. Or you can try experimenting with range, like have the melody or bass line an octave above or below. Again, a very pleasant piece! Nice work
    • Have a few moments. I'll throw something. It isn't easy because there's so little of it, just one phrase with a passing modulation.
