    Hi everyone! I just released my debut piano album on 25th of October, so it´s still very fresh. It contains 10 of my original compositions and 1 re-make of an 80´s pop song which I´ve made on a request of the artist himself. Please take a listen to the full album here and let me know how you like it! If anyone would be interested, you can buy the album here: https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina

    I think i'm finished with this one although unsure about the ending. I wanted to write something a bit faster than I normally would. I don't have the score as Logic is terrible for that. Enjoy and comments welcome as per. Any feedback really is welcome, good or bad.

    When I visit a member's profile, it would be nice, I think, to see a list of links to that person's music, that is, to pieces previously posted on this site.

    This prelude was inspired by an autumn walk. Any kind of criticism is welcome! Prelude 1 Op.2.mp3

    A short piece for solo piano, basically a variation of the same theme in 2 parts, separated by the change of dynamics.

    Greetings YC Family! It's been a long time since I made a post and visited the forum. For those of you who may recognize me, you know that I was once an administrator on this site. My years on here have aided me in my ventures within the past decade. One of these ventures was the setup and creation of an online radio station devoted solely to promoting the works of new and emerging composers. This post, thus, serves two purposes: 1. To promote Et Lux Radio and encourage each and everyone of you to listen to the music of your peers as it is broadcast 24/7. and... 2. Make a formal call for live, or rendered, recordings of your works along with a signed affidavit giving Et Lux Radio permission to include the works within its broadcast. Submitted recordings need to be downloadable and in .mp3 format. They can be for any instrumentation and must be under 25 mins in length. Please include in your submission a brief biography and any related program notes for your works. Submissions can be emailed to jaowoodr@gmail.com! Thanks and I look forward to hearing your works!

    I could also write about some of our history, which could be quite interesting. We'd need to get a few of our old guard members on board to help though.

    This is what happens when you have to write daily pieces and you get bored with writing crap. I'm quite proud of this work, even though it may not be conventional in any sense of the word. I hope you enjoy this one!

    This piece was supposed to be an introit or "requiem" movement to a requiem I was writing until I realized I hate writing with established formats (i.e. symphony, sonata, etc.) so this piece remains as is. As such, the final buildup was planned to up an octave and take two phrases instead of one to descend the second time through, but I never wrote a "second time through" so what's here is what's here. Enjoy!

    I have had the good fortune to live on Central Park in New York for six years. I’ve had the place all to myself in the winter and have had to share it with tourists in the summer. It has many points of interest, such that each are singular and need no colorful qualification. There is The Lake, The Pond, The Meer and The Beach (yes, the park has a real beach). The Sheep Meadow, The Bridal Path, The Boathouse, and so on. One of each. And the Carousel. That too, unique, except for the children who are always the same at five years old. Their mothers bring them here to go around on the wooden horses as the motor cranks up and up and up and the jangly circus music begins, and all the many little hearts that beat so fast in their fearless joy … I wanted to share this little vignette with you. Sorry, no score, but I can give you the instrumentation. 2 clarinets, 1 bassoon, 1 Horn in F, Bb trumpet, piano, harp, glockenspiel and strings.

    A cold winter night, an old steam train is pressing forward through the cloudy fog surrounded by tall dark trees. Inside is filled with tall suspicious figures. This scene depicts the introduction to a murder mystery.

    This is meant to be a small scene, flying over the ocean towards the final destination (final boss if you will). During the last seconds, the plane closes in on the enemy.

    This a short piece I recently finished after digging up an old theme. As the name implies, it is strongly influenced by Schubert's famous Moment Musical in F minor as well and is structured similarly though I wonder if it is too influenced by the Schubert's work. I kind of got lazy with the ending, I hope to come up with a better one. Score is attached but as always, is a little rough.

    Here's something a bit different. I've always been a big fan of composing in as many mediums as I can get my hands on, and one medium that I've really been getting into over the last couple years is chiptunes. I've done quite a few that I really like but this one is probably my most well-liked so far on the website I participate in (battleofthebits.org). It's quite classical-leaning in many ways, as opposed to a lot of chiptunes which deliberately seek to sound videogame-y. I called it 'ceilidh' because it was inspired by two ceilidhs that I attended during my first week here in Glasgow. A ceilidh, to put it as simply as possible, is a traditional Scottish gathering with song and dance. To me, the term 'chiptune' is distinct from '8-bit' in that a chiptune is music that could actually be physically played on a specific music chip. To prove it, the .mp3 I have uploaded here is an actual recording that another user took of their own NES, playing the music file I had created. It also means there's not much use me uploading the source file, because it was created in FamiTracker which is not notation software.

    Here is a piece I hope to compliment with two more pieces for a more complete sonata -- this is only the first movement. I've spent a while working on making my writing more concise for chamber settings, and once I actually write this whole piece, I plan on getting it performed and recorded. A large focus on this piece is varying textures and moods efficiently, as well as using the different motifs and melodic fragments to construct the music, concerning myself less with harmonic relationships etc. I've included a score in concert pitch, as well. Suggestions are helpful, and thanks! P.S. I attached a poem by William Carlos Williams, which helped me start the piece P.P.S. I appreciate all the comments, especially on the difficulty of the piano part, and when I finally incorporate this piece into a full sonata, I might re-evaluate certain places. The feedback helps a ton!

    Hey people, This one is only a short track but I was trying to match the setting of a busy airport. Im not too sure how effective it is because I've listened to it way too much and cant really tell anymore haha but I would love your feedback :) Cheers guys

    Hello, I composed this little piece in response to a challenge on the forum to write for a combination of two instruments based on your birthday date. At the same time, I used this piece for an exercise, I gave myself: write a piece in less than 15 minutes. My combination was the Violin and the Horn (in F). I tried to keep the atmosphere very light, yet interesting. The music has to be funny, because it is a 'birthday song,' so therefore the Allegro scherzando and no very heavy harmonies. Sharing your thoughts is very appreciated! Maarten

    Hi :D Here i've got something with athmosphere of virgin valley. I wanted to has it as a short intro, like exploration suite in the game. Some kind of stronger ambient, but the main target was to achieve emotional aura and feeling of this beautiful land. I'm very interesting about your opinion with this super-easy short arrangement, melody and harmony. :) Hope You like it! >> Youtube - Primeval Valley <<

    I wrote a piece for my orchestra director a while back as our graduating class left his instruction and I was so awful at modulations. Like, they work, but they're embarrassing. The standard issues like modulation and crossed voices are here sometimes, but generally I think the classical nature of it works, but it's too docile for the energy I see in the orchestration. I think you can also spend time on dynamics more; it's really vague and/or general when some of your lines don't exactly lend themselves to interpretation as easily.

    A few of you may remember this as Sketch No. 100 on this site, but I revisited it, updated it, and quite like the end result. A friend will be performing it for her recital in June. Enjoy!

    Hello, To be honest, I have no idea how a Viennese piano waltz sounds like. I only know orchestral versions by the Viennese maestros. The waltzes sound very Chopinesque to me, despite you say in the description you tried to compose in the Viennese style. Some parts sound very improvised. Can you give me example of Viennese piano waltzes? I am astonished by your modulations. They sound very natural and logical. The melodies are beautiful too. The sixth waltz is too repetitive in my opinion, because you only have one rythmic patern and you repeat this patern for more than one minute. Cutting the repetition bars out would probably solve the problem. Your audio sounds pretty nice for a piece played by notation software. Which program / soundfont do you use? Overall well done! Maarten

    Hi I've been working on something simple but funny (for me). Inspired in the life of my cats, I'm doing a king of little suite for flute, clarinet and piano. The clarinet is not transposed in the score. Well, music for me is this, too... T I've written too pieces (working on more): Awakening: the moment when the all come back from the dreamworld. Purring: including the sound of Dexter.
