    Starving Musician

Profile Information

  • Biography
    I'm a young girl called Anna (Oh! What a surprise!) and I live in a small country in Europe. English is not my language, so I make lots of stupid mistakes.
    I study composition... well, "study" isn't the right word, I only take lessons once a week. I prepare to study composition, that's the right formulation. And I hope I would become a composer... one day...
  • Gender
  • Location
    A small, strange, really-not-important country in the middle of Europe
  • Occupation
  • Interests
    Composing. And playing the piano, writing poems and stories and thinking about strange things.
  • Favorite Composers
    My really favorite composers are Beethoven, Liszt and Brahms. But I like lots of composers. Wagner, Dvořák, Janáček, Chopin, Berlioz...
  • My Compositional Styles
    I don't know, but I'm pretty sure it's not serialism.
  • Notation Software/Sequencers
    Mainly paper and a pencil, but sometimes MuseScore.
  • Instruments Played
    I play piano quite well. And I can play recorder a bit, but it sounds horrible. And I'm going to learn to play the violin.

  1. Three pieces from childhood

    Once upon a time, I was thirteen years old (I'm not sure if I can call it "childhood") and I decided to become a composer. And there are three of my early compositions. Just for fun. I think if there was a competition for the worst piece of this forum, I would win it. But i like these... eh, things. They're a bit nostalgic for me, because it was my first contatct with music. (I couldn't play the piano and my knowledge of music theory... well, it just didn't exist.) Now, four years later, I found these recordings and I was like: "Argh, it shouldn't sound like that!" And then: "Who cares? It's cute." So you can enjoy strange melodies, parallel fifths and horrible interpretation of my fourteen-years-old alter ego. I. Sen (Dream) - It was my first composition and I was very proud of it. It's in something like C major. II. Pochod poražených orlů (A strange name that I can't translate, but it's something like March of Eagles) - It's in D minor, one of my favourite keys, and I composed it for my dead grandmother. III. Der Morgenwalzer (The Morning Waltz) - It's in... well, I think it's atonal. But I'm not sure. There's B flat major, C minor, something phrygian...
  2. learning music composition

    Maybe I'm not experienced enough to give advice, but I think you should just try it.
  3. Let's talk about (tone)colours

    When I listen to music, I see colours, shapes and structures. But it doesn't work very well when I'm concentrating to it, so I can't say what I exactly see in this prelude. Some parts are bright yellow (the colour of E major) and some are strange, something between orange and brown.
