    Sequence (Not Finished)

    I totally agree.

    Sequence (Not Finished)

    I think what aim gonna do is look at what some other composers did for counter point. I’m a singer first, and I usually get over focused on the words. And forget about so much how it sounds. But what they’re saying. And it often leaves me trapped in this homophonic music throughout.

    Sequence (Not Finished)

    I hadn’t even noticed how much I did that. It’s probably because I don’t know what to do on the intense parts that require counterpoint. For example later in the piece at the recordare (m. 255) I don’t quite know how to add parts that make the other parts more interesting, while also making the total sound very intense. Like what I wanted was ‘yo Jesus, I know I have forsaken you and now you’re crucified and scraggy, and I’m sorry’ and that moment I wanted every word to be important. How do I use counter point in while maintaining the intense fear that’s I’m trying to create.

    Es Uzgaju Ganidama (Latvian Daina TTBB)

    Very Beautiful, I'd love to be in a reverbiant area while a choir sang this for real. I'm loving the independence of each part while as a choir sounding beautiful. I disagree with DMT because I feel like the Ahs are beautiful and make the introduction of the choir less surprising. I found myself singing the bass part, the type of bass part I love singing. They seem very important.

    Sequence (Not Finished)

    I'm currently going through a little dry stage in my composition of this piece. I think I started this like a week before the Summer Announcement but never got to finishing it. I'm not sure if I'll do a whole Requiem Mass but RN I'm planning on finishing the Sequence. It's current time is 10 mins. My expectation is for it to be 16 min. Feel free to make any suggestions. Even little ones like "m. 32 sounds weird but idk y" anything is really helpful. The last 10 measures are no where near what the final result should be also. When Completed the whole Sequence should use the words Dies irae, dies illa Solvet saeclum in favilla, Teste David cum Sibylla. Quantus tremor est futurus Quando judex est venturus Cuncta stricte discussurus. Tuba mirum spargens sonum Per sepulcra regionum Coget omnes ante thronum. Mors slopebit et natora Cum resurget creatura Judicanti responsura. Liber scriptus proferetur In quo totum continetur, Unde mundus judicetur. Judex ergo cum sedebit Quidquid latet apparebit, Nil inultum remanebit. Quid sum miser tunc dicturus, Quem patronum togaturus, Cum vix justus sit securus? Rex tremendae majestatis, Qui salvandos salvas gratis, Salve me, fons pietatis. Recordare, Jesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae, Ne me perdas ilia die. Quaerens me sedisti lassus, Redemisti crucem passus, Tamus labor non sit cassus. Juste judex ultionis Donum fac remissionis Ante diem rationis. lngemisco tamquam reus, Culpa rubet vultus meus, Supplicanti parce, Deus. Qui Mariam absolvisti Et latronem exaudisti, Mihi quoque spem dedisti. Preces meae non sum dignae, Sed tu bonus fac benigne, Ne perenni cremet igne. Inter oves locurn praesta, Et ab haedis me sequestra, Statuens in parle dextra. Confutatis maledictis Flammis acribus addictis, Voca me cum benedictis. Oro supplex et acclinis, Cor contritum quasi cinis, Gere curam mei finis. Lacrimosa dies ilia Qua resurget ex favilla Judicandus homo reus. Huic ergo parce, Deus, Pie Jesu Domine, Dona els requiem. Day of wrath, that day Will dissolve the earth in ashes As David and the Sibyl bear witness. How Great will be the quaking When the Judge shall come To judge all things strictly. A trumpet, spreading a wondrous sound Through the graves of all lands, Will drive mankind before the throne. Death and Nature shall be astonished When all creation rises again To answer to the Judge. A book, written in, will be brought forth In which is contained everything that is, Out of which the world shall be judged. When therefore the Judge takes His seat Whatever is hidden will reveal itself. Nothing will remain unpunished. What then shall I say, wretch that I am, What advocate entreat to speak for me, When even the righteous may hardly be secure? King of great majesty, Who freely savest the redeemed, Save me, O fount of goodness. Remember, blessed Jesu, That I am the cause of Thy way, lest lose me on that day. Seeking me Thou didst sit down weary, Thou didst redeem me, suffering death on the cross. Let not such toil be in vain. Just and avenging Judge, Grant remission Before the day of reckoning. I groan like a guilty man. Guilt reddens my face. Spare a suppliant, O God. Thou who didst absolve Mary Magdalene And didst hearken to the thief, To me also hast Thou given hope. My prayers are not worthy, But Thou in Thy merciful goodness grant That I burn not in everlasting fire. Place me among Thy sheep And separate me from the goats, Setting me on Thy right hand. When the accursed have been confounded And given over to the bitter flames, Call me with the blessed. I pray in supplication on my knees. My heart contrite as the dust, Safeguard my fate. Mournful that day When from the dust shall rise Guilty man to be judged. Therefore spare him, O God. Merciful Jesu, Lord Grant them rest.

    Running Nature

    Weird I've also been recently learning overtones. I can control my overtones but I'm learning techniques to make them louder.

    Violin Concerto la tempesta di neve

    the I before the X means 10 minus 1. so XXXIX is actually 10+10+10-1+10=39

    Violin Concerto la tempesta di neve

    Definitely something I would want to hear again in a performance hall. Very beautiful. I'm usually not much of a fan for a baroque music unless it's really good. So I wouldn't really mind listening to yours again. My internet is getting throttled recently so I haven't been able to open people's PDFs. So I can't really find anything to correct. I want to hear Concerto XXXX now.

    What is currently your favorite piece of music?

    Faure's Requiem. The modal changes and mood throughout make such powerful transitions.

    Running Nature

    I feel like vowel choice at the end was kind'of random. I sounds like you were doing overtones but I can't tell because you only did it there. But besides that it's a great chill out song. definitely something I'll listen to when I'm relaxing.

    Needing Help with Counter Melodies

    This Guy is helpful with this topic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWjyds4yRAA It starts basic but I suggest watching every video. In general you will need to think ahead with an idea of the sound you want to create each time. What I do with counter-melody is I hum my given melody, and while knowing my goal for that phrase I hum my counter-melody. Some people just know what to write, others just find harmonies and mix and match notes to fit a given harmony. Go in with a plan, and come out with strong sounding piece that might've broken a rule or two while you were making it.

    My first Fugue

    There are a couple things I don't think work well. 1. Measure 9. The Alto and Bass are singing the same note, leaving some empty space harmonically. 2.Measure 6. Everyone is singing the same note in octaves, leading to a boring sound for the whole measure. 3. I feel like your focusing too much on each part independently rather than as a ensemble. Look at every half beat and check for an interesting chord. In the future you should try to plan out the chords. So start at C major then G major then D minor then A minor for the first measure. When you write a part, look more closely at it's relationship with other instruments. Υπάρχουν μερικά πράγματα που δεν νομίζω ότι λειτουργούν καλά. 1. μέτρο 9. Το άλτο και μπάσο τραγουδούν το ίδιο σημείωμα, αφήνοντας κάποιο κενό χώρο αρμονικά. 2. μέτρο 6. Ο καθένας τραγουδά το ίδιο σημείωμα σε οκτάβες, οδηγώντας σε ένα βαρετό ήχο για το σύνολο του μέτρου. 3. αισθάνομαι όπως την εστίαση σας πάρα πολύ σε κάθε μέρος ανεξάρτητα παρά ως σύνολο. Κοιτάξτε κάθε μισή καταμέτρηση και ελέγξτε για μια ενδιαφέρουσα χορδή. Στο μέλλον θα πρέπει να προσπαθήσει να σχεδιάσει τις χορδές. Έτσι ξεκινούν από C μείζονα χορδή τότε G μείζονα χορδή τότε D ήσσονος σημασίας, στη συνέχεια, ανήλικος για το πρώτο μέτρο. Όταν γράφετε ένα μέρος, εξετάσουμε πιο στενά σε αυτό είναι σχέση με άλλα μέσα.

    Deo Dicamus Gratias TTBB

    my most major complain is measure 24, with that tie on the tenor 1, you're kind'of telling them to treat it like a diphthong (two sounds 1 syllable, ex = pie. pi-e) So I suggest getting rid of that tie. Besides that I'd say accents would be helpful. You accented De of deo every time so you should mark that. Besides that it's melodically and harmonically interesting. Also I'd suggest making a 4 system score, one with every singer separated from the other. I wouldn't confidently perform a piece like this unless the parts are well known.

    Symphonic study n°1 in E minor

    I mean it always helps. But if what you have works for you, keep it. If you're thinking about changing that feel free. I use the Finale Garriton sounds as-well and I'm pleased with them myself so I've never found a need myself.
