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.
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!
