    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!

    Check out our Fall, 2019 competition, "Poor Form", in the event at the bottom of the page or our Monthly Competitions forum!

    • Hello!  I just would like to have some feedback on this track I wrote. I wanted to represent a typical traffic jam situation in a very big city. The piece is written for a large woodwind ensemble, piano and percussions. 
    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2QAjVkdy58 This is my newest composition. I took 4 popular traditional songs from Serbia, all in measure 7/8, and in traditional natural minor scales, and made a fugue out of them. I maintained mixture between traditional harmony and some modal moments (with open fifths). Feel free to comment :)  
    • Like descending structure, and the melody,   makes me think of being somewhat drunk, and the floor is starting to tilt, things on the wall, are starting to drip down like a Dali painting AND I'm a be melancholy.  It certainly evokes certain emotions..  I like your pieces, usually short, but very concise and to the point.  Well done. 
    • It's absolutely beautiful. The harmonies are so rich and colourful. To me, it doesn't sound so much like Chopin but I can see what @Tónskáld means. It has the depth but clarity of harmony that he could produce. I think the title Étude is fine. It does seem technically challenging, but a bit more like a Liszt or Schumann etude which cover many different areas of challenge. The section beginning at Bar 23 is beautiful, as is Bar 49. The finale rounds off very well. The last note being piano rather that forte is unexpected, and is a nice touch. Thank you for sharing your music!
    • If I didn't know any better, I'd say this was a lost étude of Chopin. So masterfully done! (Also, great job on getting the MIDI rendering to sound lifelike!) There is so much nuance here. It's as if your mind is one step ahead of the music, rather than the other way around (which seems to be the case for typical composers—myself included.) Overall, great job! I enjoyed this very much... now if we could only hear a live recording.
