  1. Well, this is my second week of the waltz challenge, it is pretty late because engineering is sucking mylife out and I dont have much time to compose :c. With this one I tried to get out of my comfort zone, I used extended harmony,some basic counterpoint and writting mostly in major which are some of the things that Im bad at. Hope you like it, any feedback is welcome.

  2. Glenn Gould once famously inquired, "So you want to write a fugue?" Well, yes Glenn I did. So I developed a little subject - as fugue themes sometimes want to be - and off I went. After completing it, someone pointed out that it really wasn't all that fugue-ey, that it did'nt act like a real fugue, didn't feel like one either. Upon a bit of contemplation I had to agree with my friend, my first attempt at fugue-ing did not turn out as I had hoped. Oh, woe was me, with my little still-born, only fugue-ISH, creature. But then I fixed it with a mere twiddling of fingers in Sibelius. I re-christene

  3. I'm all in on the war against the AIs. However, I don't think it will be a difficult war for us to win and I actually think there's potential it could do us composers out here in meatspace some good. The only person to whom AI-created music would appeal is consumer products like video game and film makers. Frankly, the demands these industries have these days are so cookie-cutter and reused (there's been a huge debate about Hollywood's use of temp tracks for years, for example) that it may as well be composed by an AI anyway. I think this will force a lot of composers to go back

  4. Hi man, nice piece. Do what you want. A mode can have passing tones, why not. I don't care about the lenght of the work, it's irrelevant..., it what it is. I don't agree either with the parallel fifths issue, that's a vision of harmony from previos styles. I don't think Messiaen cared about that.

  5. a one movement string quartet? interesting. no, no, i mean *interesting*, quite in fact. flesh this baby out with 2 or 3 or 6 more movements? extend it and yourself into the world, make it EARN it's opus number, is what I am thinking. i will be listening if it does, indeed, henceforth arrive. -Peace (and I am) Out(ta here!)

  6. I would like the sheet music but for now will just say that here on YC I have recently been on a "kick" wherein I come across pieces that are very well composed and listenable and musical, as is the current work ,but ultimately feeling that I am wanting more. Could you/would you be interested in developing the ideas in this work more fully? I imagine the result would be even more of an achievement than you have already achieved.

  7. Loved it. Feel it def needs pedal, plus also feel it could go a tad faster (with maybe a rit at the end)..? It captivated me from beginning to end. Thanks for sharing
