  1. Hey @Tรณnskรกld thank you for your input! I will experiment and try to find my favourite workflow ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. I experimented with rewire aland ableton and it kind of works. Do you export the midi from sibelius and play it in your DAW, @Ken320?
  3. Hello. Link seems to be broken! Where do I get this magazine? Double post! Sorry! Not sure how to cancel this!
  4. Thank you so much! Great info, will follow that tutorial ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. Hi Ken, thank you very much.!As I got interested in the topic recently, I actually learnt how to use Ableton, but I am still not brave enough to actually incorporating it in my music! So if I understand you correctly, you notate all the parts (including the FX parts) in sibelius, then you import it in your DAW and associate every part to a different instrument (which supposedly is 'saved' in your DAW), and then you play it there... is it correct? ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Unfortunately I am not an expert in writing fugues, so cannot really say much about the piece. I liked it, but I think the audio could be rendered better with some more expressive marks (e.g. the most obvious one: a ritardando before the trill?). I expecially liked the modulation in bar 22. I did not like the main theme though, probably due to the jump on the fifth which sounds a bit empty. What happened to the ending btw? ๐Ÿ˜›
  7. Hi, this is the first masterclass I participate too. Basically I write a piece using what I learnt in your post and you will review it - correct? Seems like a great idea! Sorry if it's a dumb question, but what does EPM mean?
  8. Thank you @Tรณnskรกld! This problem of my music being not cohesive is real - more in other pieces than in this one to be honest! Here I hoped to keep it all together with the use and re-use of the main theme - but it's interesting to know that it didn't really work 100%. Thank you very much for listening ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. for now I have decided to name this piece Durian, a smelly and spiky asian fruit - and potentially give to the other pieces other fruit's names. ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. Hi Ken, I understand this work is a bit old now, but I was going through the hall of fame and I found it. I absolutely love it, so very well done. It's amazing how you mix very melodic parts with some sharp dissonance sections. I also wanted to ask how did you create the score with respect to the mixture of instruments and effect. I am a novice in the area but generally I write my stuff in sibelius and play it with noteperformer. How would you go about in adding effects there? I understand this may be a complex topic, so maybe you can just point me in the rigth direction and I'll figure the rest out? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks! And congratulation again, amazing work
  11. Hello! Just listened to your piece, very nice indeed, loved the effect version! Can you tell me what's your workflow for adding effect to the piece? I guess you first compose the piece in finale/sibelius, and then .. what? Do you pass it ti Cubase or Ableton? I am really curious about this!
  12. Hello folks, this is my last composition. First of all, I would like to know what do you think about the piece. Even though everyone I asked to liked Math Piano Rock more (see the other post on this board) I believe this one is a deeper piece compositionally. Secondly, that's the first time I do some proper editing with some proper camera and lightining. Please tell me what do you think about that! I am now writing the 2nd and 3rd movement, even though this piece works on its own as well. So potentially this piece is part of a set. The second movement is slow, the third is fast (classic!). However I would like to avoid titles like Sonata or Suite. Any title that comes to your mind? Thank you guys for listening! ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. This is amazing, and also amazingly difficult. Very well done, I will certainly subscribe to your channel!
  14. Hello Lotsy, I am new as well! As for your question about the community, I think maybe this forum is the place you are looking for? ๐Ÿ™‚ Surely it won't be easy to find these community as there is no much interest in new piano music (unfortauntely). As for your piece, this is definitively not my genre (I don't like romantic and sweet piano music) - but in it's genre seems to work pretty well. You also use some interesting chord (hey, 0'29'', nicely done). If this is the style you are aiming at, I think you are doing great. If you aim to do more complex pieces, then the only advice I can give you (which works for me) is to find parts that you like in the works of the great masters and analyze them and try to figure out how the heck they do that. You will find that most of the tricks are not explained in the commond harmony/composition textbook, and they are actually not explained anyway. In fact, you can learn much more by analising a piece of Rachmaninoff than by reading a book on Harmony (assuming that one has enough musical knowledge for doing the analysis!).
