  1. Hi everyone, I've been composing a lot of very little compositions since the end of 2017(did not compose before that), I have about 80 of them that I feel worth sharing with friends, but I can rarely receive tips from other composers because I don't know many. Even if I consider all of these 80 tracks finished in a way, they are all unfinished as they are very short and weren't revised in anyway. So, I decided to share with you one that I called Brian because I wrote it while playing a game of chess with my friend Brian (he was very slow and not very skilled at the game so I had time to do two things at a time). I'm using notion notation software to write down my ideas and to listen to them. With notion I could automatically produce the mp3 and pdf files I'm sharing right now. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Chanting Machine Guns

    Sounds clean 🙂 I'm curious what software you used to create this work? I'm impress to know how much time you have put into creating this! Patience is something I have to work onto.

    *(New Mvt Added)* Symphony No. 1 in A Major

    Wow! I'm still into composing for strictly four voices (still a very beginner composer here), but I aspire being able to compose more complex work such as symphonies! Me and my teacher often refer to andante movement as the "boring" movements of symphonies when you're not really into it, but yours is definitely all, but boring! Great work!

    Little piece for chamber ensemble (strings)

    Lot's of content! My favorite bars were 52, 53 and 66 to 70. Gave me the motivation to go back and practice my etude for piano! It is to me, a very dramatic adagio.

    Cataclysm (Summer 2018 Competition)

    I think the music you've made is very true to a cataclysm of that kind as it's not sad at all at first. It's just terrifying and it doesn't give the time to be sad. It does bring some desolation in the middle when the survivalists try to help each other and don't really understand what's going on, but I think that's the point. Everyone is on the panic mode. That's my point of view and very good job to you. I think it's a nice idea to think of how someone could explore other emotions around cataclysm. Like a more romantic view or a last will.

    Premonition, one of my first composition

    Thanks for your feedback! I'm working on using the counterpoint and finding nicer melodies as well as getting rid of the ostinato as you said. I moved the bass and cello an octave lower and merged the two violin and viola to form only two voices so I can insert a melody on the first violin. I also put the key signature. Also, instead of repeating theme A I'm trying to find a better and original ending that is not the same as the beginning of course.
  7. Edited post: So I added piccolo flute, flute, piccolo clarinet and oboes to enrich the composition. I still feel like my music is a big draft and I kept some of what was forming an ostinato, but it's less apparent now. Even if I don't consider it finished I decided to repost my work to see if what I'm doing make sense as what I just uploaded is very different from the original. To explain what this composition is all about, it was at first an harmony experiment with strings. I wrote two themes and the piece would go ABA opening and ending with the rhythm pattern of theme B. It's after writing it that I decided to call it premonition because it made feel like it was warning me about what's was coming up in my life and really was true to feeling I had later on. Now, I added some wind instruments and I gave new rhythms to the themes. Theme A still repeats two times with just different nuances, but I feel like it makes a good effect. After both theme have played there is a sort of development of theme A, but then the same theme B repeats with the piccolo clarinet instead of the pizzicato violin. There is always a sort of theme C and D to link the other two together which sounds like CAACBDAACBD. Although B doesn't repeat, it's eight bars long compare to four bar for A. Thanks again! Old post: Hi everybody, I was looking for a nice community to share my music and here I am! I decided to share one straight away as I don't have much time as of now to look at what's going on here on the website, but I plan on giving feedback and appreciation of others music as soon as I can. So here is premonition or prémonition in french. It's made out of a string orchestra. Two violin, a viola, a cello and a bass. I think it's one of my best composition as I had very basic knowledge in music when I wrote it, but still came up with very creative harmony and melody compare to other stuff I was doing at the time (February 2018). In fact all five voices have their own melody. Basically, I was wondering what you think it sounds like and if anyone has ideas to improve it or suggestions like other instruments I could use. Maybe I could do a sixth voice I don't know. Anyway! I hope I'm at the right place to share my works and discover other people works! Thanks!
