    Canons for solo piano

    Ooo, dissonant counterpoint sounds interesting. I'll check it out. Thanks! 😄

    Canons for solo piano

    Some of you may remember that I tried to write a crab canon a while ago. During my family holiday, I decided to have another ago. I enjoyed writing it so much that I wrote another 4 canons to go along with it. I would have written a 6th one but I didn't have time to do so before submitting my composition portfolio for uni. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkZK1SM8trg

    Soliloquy for Clarinet No. 19

    Just a few observations. You could do with varying the rhythm more. The vast majority of the piece is either a run of crotchets or a run of semiquavers. By bar 10 I really wanted to hear something other than crotchets. Perhaps dotted crotchet, quaver, crotchet instead. Consider the contour of the melody. This resource should be useful. bar 25: it suddenly feels like a completely different piece. bar 28: the minim very abruptly kills all the energy which was built up in the preceding few bars Watch out with time signatures. bar 6 should be 3/4 then 2/4. This video should really help. Make sure that if something sounds like it should be on a downbeat then it actually is on the downbeat and adjust the time signatures according. For example, bar 13 should be 2/4 so that the D is on beat 1.

    Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed it. :)

    The only reason I refer to the set by it's Forte number is that it makes a much better title. <1,0,2,1,1,1> doesn't really have the same ring to it. :) I haven't heard of Pas de Deux, I'll be sure to give it a listen/analysis.

    So a while ago, I came across pitch-class sets and decided to use a set (in this case, 4-18) as the basis for a piece. The '4-18 chord' is used throughout the piece and the complement of the set forms the scale used in the flute solo.

    Idk. Your post just reminded me of that quote.

    Organ Fugue(?) in D# minor

    I do combine them at bar 19 but I definitely ought to combine them much more. Forgive me if I'm being stupid but aren't both the subjects minor? Surely, it's only the answer to the 2nd subject which is major? I agree. The only way I can think of describing it is as a binary form fugue but that definition has its own set of problems. I'll add much more material before bar 26 so that it can be a double fugue - that's probably a better solution. That's a fair point. However, I'm probably going to end up write a fugue in every key so one of them will have to be in D# minor anyway so I might as well make it this one. :D Thanks for your feedback! Thanks. I thought that it turned out quite well so I'll probably just turn it into a double fugue. I was pretty careful with parallels, obviously some must have slipped in :). Where did you see them?
  11. My first proper attempt at writing something baroquey. I was wondering, what's the best way to describe this piece, academically speaking. Fughetta, Fugue, Double Fugue, Counter fugue?
