    @Luis Hernández Thank you for your advice!
  2. Inspired by the second movement of. Messiaen's Quatuor pour la fin du temps, as well as my first time writing anything remotely in a modern style. Ternary form with a break in the B section returning to temporary traditional harmonies. An experiment in dissonance, bitonality, chromaticism, and quintal harmonies. And yes the English is bad for a reason. Comments and critique welcome!

  4. Anyone can play anything. A baby could sit on the piano. So they definitely were capable of playing it. But the example chord you gave is quite dissonant, which would have not sounded well to their ears (or mine), and so would not have written it down. Nor at that time were they close to the development of jazz. The development of jazz came out of a need to break apart from social norms (I think), which at that time was only showing through the Scientific Revolution, the Enlightenment, and the Industrial Revolution, but not necessarily for music. As far as I know, they were often commissioned to write music for the church or for royalty and their events, so their music needed to please the ears of the audience, otherwise heads might have been chopped off. Also, the question is also of their personal likes and dislikes of the dissonance and how receptive their ears are to it, which you referred to as an evolved hearing if one could comprehend jazz. That we may never know. But if comprehending jazz is evolved, I'm a prehistoric Neanderthal.

    I don't even know what I'm doing here, I'm so bad at this haha. First time posting. Here's a piece I wrote for a project we had to do for AP Music Theory a few weeks ago where we took the harmonic structure/progression of another piece or song and rewrote a melody for it. I decided to use Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata Presto agitato and copied the form too. To skip the repeat, jump from 5:14 to 10:28 Shadow_of_the_Sun_Sonata.mp3 Shadow of the Sun Sonata.pdf
