  1. Here's a personal project of mine. Space is a wonder to me. The first man ever set his foot on the moon 50 years ago. Being a music composer, I wanted to do something for this anniversary. The project got so big and ambitious that I wanted to make a clip for it. And I got lucky when NASA announced that they made their footage copyright free. So I bought video editing software and made my first ever cut. I'm definitely not an editor but I had a lot of fun making this video. Here is the link to the music and video. https://youtu.be/EcvL36-x_Ec

  2. Concerto per violino, archi e bass continuo in b minor "Paradiso e inferno". written 20.06.19 - 25.06.19. Been some time since i wrote a concerto, so here is my summer contribution. Three part concerto written in the late italian school. I. Allegro - paradiso: 4/4 time, livly tempo and fugures, high in the register of the violin (Heaven it is!), the triumph key of d major. II. Adagio - cadere dalla grazia (fall from grace) 4/4 time. slow pace, rethorical use of rets, b, minor III. Vivace - inferno, 4/4 time, fast pace, slaming fugres, chromatic downward passages (goi

  3. Hello, i'm new on this forum. I would like to share my lastest composition. It's the first movement of my 2nd piano concerto, composed in A minor. What do you think of it ?

  4. Hi all! I'm new here, and I really wish I'd discovered this community much sooner! I love classical music but, as a violist, my largest complaint has been the lack of stirring, cinematic viola concerti. Well, what's a composer to do? So here's my stab at a full-length viola concerto. I've named it Yfirsést (pronounced ih-ver-syest), the Icelandic word for "overlooked," and an all-too common feeling among violists. This is the first movement, and it resounds with the struggle of overcoming mediocrity and being seen for what you are. (I couldn't tell you what composer it sounds like, b

  6. So a year ago, I had this idea of composing a suite that would represent different types of weather. I would call this suite Weather Music. But it wasn't until a few days ago that I actually started composing part of the suite. What part did I start composing you might ask? Well, I started composing probably the most intense part of the suite. That's right, I composed the part of the suite that is supposed to represent a storm. I am like exactly a quarter of the way through finishing the piece. But before I even started composing it, I was like: Full orchestra example: B

  8. Tomorrow is the longest day of the year on a Sunday in my country, at which time people burn a dummy witch per old tradition, and this afternoon, I just felt in the mood to finish this piano piece. I feel like it has a bit of summer in it. But I actually started on it back in April or so, then put it in the drawer, because I found something off-putting about it. I hope it sounds reasonable now.

  9. I feel a happy emotion to this, even when the minor keys are exposed. But not just any happiness. It feels kind of like a person is skipping around. I love it. And the C major is so expressive here. I have tried to get my C major to sound expressive and all I get is what sounds like happy boredom, sort of like this piece here: If I want the piece to both be expressive and have C as the tonic note, I usually resort to 1 thing, using the key of C minor. I find that with C minor, I can get just about any possible emotion across relatively easily like this: Anger - Just use

  10. I don't think I have heard such a key like A major be so sad. Usually when I think of an emotion that is typical for A major I think of this: That's right, I think of the key of A major as having a bouncy feel to it, which staccato just reinforces. A good example of this is Rondo Alla Turka by Mozart. But your piece has a grim sadness more typical of a minor key like E minor, despite it being in a major key. I myself have never gotten a major key to feel sad. I have gotten it to feel nocturnal, but not sad. If I were to think of a piece that has the sadness that your

  11. Woodwinds are pretty diverse and complex, so forgive me if this answer is too generalized. By themselves, woodwinds blended together create this lush, watery, woodsy sound that you don't get from the strings. Unfortunately, they're easily drowned out by the rest of the orchestra, so you have to choose your woodwind moments wisely. As you know, they're much more versatile than their wind cousins the brass, so woodwinds are great for playing those fast harmonies or countermelodies against the strings. However, what I like best about the woodwinds is their different voices! The flute is ligh

  12. I like the crescendos, the intro melody along with the sus vib notes from the cellos sounds epic. Definitely has a classical feel to it around the 2 min marker.

  13. @SilverWolf Thanks for the feedback! Here is the second movement, entitled 'Andante religioso.' It's mournful and redemptive, with hymn-like themes and swelling anthems. At times tender, at times dissonant, it continues the struggle to not be "overlooked."

  14. I like that it has a lot of varied articulations in it, a few of the chords I would have done differently (not sure of the name but it sounds like stacked m chords).

  15. On the joy of coffee, the composer's best friend. This is for a small jazz band of piano, bass, drums, violin, clarinet, trumpet and trombone. I may have posted this before but I don't remember and I don't see it anywhere, so ... here it is. 😊

  16. This is quite an epic piece. very good.. perhaps some gentle EQ'ing on some tracks to clarify what the different instruments are doing. The low mids are quite dense ( bordering on getting muddy). Perhaps some of the strings play an octave higher, or voices. The movement and orchestration are QUITE GOOD..

  17. Focusing in on the section around the one minute mark, the counterpoint between the upper and lower voices was a little strained when there are leaps to and away power chords in the upper register (perfect fourths) in an unrelated key.

  18. I just wrote a simple guitar riff and I thought it would be nice if I just put it over some videos I recorded from the forest and lake in my neighborhood. So, I made a complete dark ambient song and made this music video for that.

  19. I recently completed a flute concerto that will be premiering in the fall. A few things I can share off the top of my head: I think it's unwise to write the piano part and orchestral part as two separate entities/two separate sessions. One thing I learned while writing was that you need to give the soloist time to breathe. Both in the literal sense, and also from the standpoint of the audience. The ear tires from listening to the same type of sound after awhile, so the best way to keep the ear interested is to change up the sound. When you listen to great concertos (of any inst

  21. My fat fingers did the page refresh shortcut in the middle of composing my comment. So here we try again. But at least I got the B. That's pretty close, isn't it? Thanks! Oh, no no no, I don't know more about harps than you do if you're already trying to figure out pedals and stuff. My harp knowledge is on the level of Monty Python's How To Do It lesson on how to play the flute. As for the key, I probably gave more thought to my pairing of socks this morning than I did to the key of this thing, and I probably should have transposed the whole thing up to F if knew what I was doi
