  1. Tubular Bells and Tenorsax Duo

    Hi Luis and Ilv. Luis wrote : 1. Apart from the transposition, I think all saxophones read in treble clef. This is a conventional issue I didn´t give any thought. I did not know it. 2. I wouldn't dare writing multi-phonics, OMG. This objection makes sense, since this is called a duo and not a trio. One saxophone can´t normally play 2 notes at the same time, as far as I can tell. 3. An important thing is the range, you are out of range in the bass part. I think the lowest note is an Ab (the space at the bottom y the bass clef you have). Well, this was intended to be playable by real instruments, this objection makes sense. There is a reason I chose rather low notes for the Tenor Sax. I felt that the tenor sax sounded quite bad at the higher notes. Ilv : I intended this to be about 1 minute, according to the rules of the birthday challenge.
  2. Tubular Bells and Tenorsax Duo

    Hi Monarcheon. You wrote : "Tenor sax is a Bb-instrument." What exactly does this mean ? I felt that the Tenor sax sounded rather bad, but maybe that is because that the key signature in my piece is not Bb ? If that is the case I can just transpose it to Bb.
  3. Tubular Bells and Tenorsax Duo

    This is my answer to the birthday challenge. My instruments were Tubular Bells and Tenor sax. I don´t think this is a especially good composition. I could give it another try but I would consider that cheating. :-) Maybe the constellation is also bad or difficult to work with. I like the sound of the Tubular Bells though. EDIT: I just realized that I accidentally put this in the wrong category.
  4. Birthdate Composition Challenge

    This is kind of funny. I have got Tubular bells and Tenor sax. The funny thing is that I am fan of Mike Oldfield and he has written an album called "Tubular Bells". I also used the instrument several times when I was young. I think the reason I chose it was because of that album. :-)
  5. Nice, Luderart ! :-) I love music, that are meant to describe something very specific. I think it is called concept music. Not to be confused with conceptual art. I appreciate your experiment and I appreciate the music.
  6. Same Melody Twice

    Hi Maarten >However, @aMusicComposer asks for advice or at least for our opinions, so I give him mine. >Sharing the melody in a (audio) file would clarify the question. You are right. It is a good thing to hear other people´s view on things. However the question :"Should I use the same melody twice?" if taken literal strike me as absurd. That is really not for me or someone else to decide. If the question is to be taken literal, it is really a strange question. I don´t really think we disagree here. :-) Kim
  7. Same Melody Twice

    This is really a strange question. Why do you want to know our opinion about this ? It is your music, not our music. As long as you don´t intend to hurt anyone with it, you can do as you please. You are really the only one, who can answer this question properly.
  8. Meaning of instrumental music

    "The beauty of music is that it can be interpreted many ways." Well said. I remember one old piece uploaded to this site, that was called "Eternal Death". I felt that piece was so creepy to listen to. I don´t know if it is still here.
  9. How to notate this?

    Hi Monarcheon I am not sure if this helps, but it is worth a try. If the problem is the time-signature, you could perhaps something like this. The lower notes of the first measure relates to the upper notes as a quarter-note relates to a quarter triplet. The lower notes of the second measure relates to the upper notes as a quarter-note relates to a quarter pentuplet.
  10. Through the window

    Hi Annabel I was quite moved by this. This must be a recording, rather than a computer-playback Some people can touch us with their voice. I didn´t know it was possible to touch people with their way of playing until now. Beautiful.
  11. >So I'm glad Bach was Bach, Mozart was Mozart, and Beethoven was Beethoven, rather than something they were not. Wonderfully said, Austenite.
  12. HELP! Name of this piece?

    Hi Maarten If you haven´t already found it, you can probably find it using shazam.
  13. Symphony No.4 ''Randstad''

    Hi Maarten You can find my composition "Water" on my profile. I have uploaded it to the site. It is not Mosaic music, but has a rather contemporary feel to it I would say. Kim
  14. Symphony No.4 ''Randstad''

    Hi Maarten Since you like this kind of music, (Mosaic music) I feel that I should tell you about my composition :"Water" which reminds a little bit of your piece. I am bit curious as to what this Mosaic music exactly is. Is it something like this ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moment_form
  15. The Fool

    Hi Monarcheon >The inconsistent eighth note pattern is kind of distracting, but that has no bearing on the actual piece. I think this can be blamed on the midifile. For some reason the rhythm is a bit untight when you use a mouse to write the notes instead of recording the music. I don´t know if this has something to do with the music program I have used. >The F#dim held for two bars is a little strange in the first phrase is a little bit off putting, and sounds non-functional, even though it resolves later, but by that point it's a little bit too >late, the sentiment is there.>In the polyrhythmic part, the only chord that was really off was the E - G - A - B arpeggiation. It's just the spacing that was a little weird. I don´t understand what you mean here. >I would have had appreciated more variation in the progression as well. It goes on a little bit too long in the same way. Yes,I have a tendency to use the same chordprogression over and over in my music. I don´t think it is needed to change the chordprogression in this case. It does´nt bother me. Another tendency I have is to write in minor keys. About 80% of my music is written in minor keys. I have a feeling this may change. I am a little tired of composing sad music.
