  1. https://soundcloud.com/retroboy87/circus https://soundcloud.com/retroboy87/circus- Hello everyone. I'm an amatuer composer with not much experience composing, but I do know a lot of music theory. Which version of this song do you think sounds better? I challenge you to do a Roman Numeral analysis of this song. Feel free to leave any feedback on this song or any of my other songs.
  2. Thanks, that was a good example. I guess this is something composers didn't start doing until the last 100 years or so.
  3. And yeah I know, not just any chord a perfect fifth above another chord is it's dominant. It has to be a major triad or Dominant 7th chord in order to function as one.
  4. The term mediant can also refer to the relationship between two triads, not just the III (or iii) chord of whatever key you're in. For example a diatonic mediant relationship exists between V and viio, and a chromatic mediant relationship exists between V and (b)VII. But I'm talking about chords that have a chromatic mediant relationship with the tonic of a minor key, specifically when the III and VI chords in a minor key have their thirds lowered to make them minor. Thanks for replying though.
  5. Please recommend me some music from the 19th or early 20th century that uses chromatic mediants in a minor key. I particularly like i-vi-i progression (Amin - Fmin - Amin in the key of A minor), like the Imperial March from Star Wars. Also what's the earliest example of Composers using a major or minor triad built on the note a tritone away from the tonic?
