  1. Oh, I don't know why this piece has no comments. It's a wonderful piece, nice counterpoint and texture. Very good blending. Evocative and modern. Good work. And beautiful performance.
  2. I think there might be a problem of concept. If you want to write baroque counterpoint you must follow its rules. You can do any kind of counterpoint, but don't pretend to write in baroque style being out of it. I don't mean it's wrong, just a matter of what you want to do and .... doing it. One thing I see in this example is more parallel than contrary or oblique motion.
  3. Prelude I sounds delicate and well built on counterpoint. Beautiful. Prelude II sounds modern and neo-romantic (to me). Nice ostinato rhythym in the first part, and repeat. Prelude III is my favorite (so far, I am listening to them now). Introspective and a bit of Satie influence? Prelude IV seems to go back to Bach inventions (first part). This is as if you were modernizing the styles. Prelude V nice ideas here, it's very pleasant. Prelude VI again I hear different influences that, finally, combine in your own style. Prelude VII sounds more contemporary. As a whole, I think your writing is careful and inspired. I love taking counterpoint, baroque, etc..., and bring them to more modern sounds.
  4. I like the counterpoint here. I don't care about the title. A Fantasia is whatever you like.
  5. Yes, interesting, but when a piece is as fast, chromatic and built-on-scales like this, I feel it as an excercise.
  6. I focus on the first part. I like the feeling of calm and uneasiness at the same time. Also, the change at 2:55.
  7. Some kind of cadence in the middle of the pieces is missing.
  8. This is nice, I like textures. But the sound doesn't do justice to what it could be.
  9. I think the left hand should change in some parts.
  10. Some short pieces. Six Piano Pieces.pdf 01 Aeolian (Winds).mp3 02 The Hummingbird's Phrygian Flight.mp3 03 Quick Diminished Changes.mp3 04 Can We Be Friends.mp3 05 Longing Worlds.mp3 06 Gemini II.mp3
  11. It sounds nice, although those big chords are out of place (I think). I wonder why people find it exciting to imitate Haydn or Mozart or whoever. I'm respectful, but "with all there is, why settle just for a piece of sky?".
  12. This is powerful and a bit sad. I love it. This is music my heart "understands",.... Thanks!
  13. This is hard to imagine. You are thinking counterpoint in terms of chords as the most important feature, not as melodic lines.
