  1. Tonality is a galaxy, atonality is another galaxy, polytonality is the ship going from tonality to atonality, but the one travels in the ship is tonal, the real atonal is the alien waiting for the traveler, in other words, polytonality is the way tonality becomes more and more advanced until it could eventually leave entirely all tonal traces, but it's in that direction, not in the other direction.* Serialism is a black hole takes you straight to the atonality galaxy. *There is always an exception, like Berg.
  2. I don't use keys anymore, keys are like borders in the map, I now live in the space.
  3. Thanks for your comment, strange comparison though.
  4. Hey, Well, I've been working for 2 years in a very heavy project for Choir and Orchestra, but is not ready yet 😋 so, I've been locked in my house due to the quarantine, just walking and sitting, and walk again and sit again, I haven't had much luck in my other work these past days, so yesterday just open an new file, and wrote a theme I found in piano that morning. This is the smallest orchestra I've used, also the shortest orchestral piece I own, it was only to kill the time you know... I must say is relaxing to write "normal music" from time to time, you don't have to be struggling with "thing nobody has written before".
  5. Hello, Do you think would be possible to contact Arvo Pärt ? do you have an idea how would I be able to send him a package to a physical address, or somehow be sure he will recieve it ? What for ?, is not important for you, but I assure you, I won't send him a bomb, he's such a respected wonderful composer, a living treasure.

    perhaps you mean near the ending ? I did struggle a bit pasting the piece with the ending I was already written before. Thanks for your comment.

    They are all to be treated as chords, large chords like in jazz, classical pianists don't usually do this but in jazz is very common to press two keys with one finger, specially the thumb, so they are actually very ergonomic if you're used to play like that. I wrote with small notes the notes can be omited in case pianist doesn't feel comfortable with that, but is intended to sound exactly how is written. I'm glad you find it good, thanks for your comment.
  8. Hey, Long time since my last activity, I guess I'll look new here, but I'm not. This is a little piece I wrote for a half joke half serious commission made to me by a percussion student in the conservatory I used to work, he just told me once "hey when you write something for marimba ?" i just said "yeah someday". This is it, is not very hard to play, he plays with two sticks only, hasn't been performed yet anyway. After finishing, while listening to it, it came to my mind a sort of Tom & Jerry behavior between the marimba and the piano, hence the title. Greetings to my old friends still around.
  9. If one takes a look to the comercial music, Rock, Pop, R&B, Soul, Disco etc, tons of different voices can be found, many are complete crap but some others are quite good, there are enough for all tastes, but in serious music is practically the same style, yes in Renaissence and Barroque is a little different, but is only like the previous version of the same thing. Today we have operas with serialism, algorithms, mathematics, electronic resourses, a lot of "new" elements but honestly they keep singing like it would be Rossini. Maybe Opera will be a difficult field to start the change, but maybe in a smaller form, like a simple Piano + Voice lied, could I imagine the piano supporting a voice like Sade, Suzanne Vega, Leigh Nash (Sixpence none de Richer) is it too crazy idea ? Each one of these kind of singers is like its own style per own, but I think it could be possible to start creating new styles and even teach certain techniques and somehow define those styles, because right now is like "Bel-Canto, and the rest", for instance I have noticed in music schools, (at least what I've seen) many people go to the school because "they like to sing" but they don't even like the "bel-canto" they have in their minds something very different, and instead of developing those talents, they drawn their voices into a world they don't even known, understand, like or even wish. Recently I've seen a couple of new ideas by composers, for instance a work "for Orchestra and Rap-Singer" perhaps I'm now the only one with this idea.
  10. Hey, I don't know you, but I, I really don't like the Bel-Canto in singers, I mean I can stand like 3 or 4 famous singers for a couple of minutes, but not the 99% of the rest of people sing like that, now, why is it that ALL Opera or Concert music has been always hopelessly tied to this technique, and remains tied in present ? So if I write an opera, or any sort of musical form is to be preformed in a concert, or just considered as part of non-comercial music, will be forced to sing like that ? There's no way to avoid that ? I understand the history of all this, but now we do have technology to use microphones or any other sort of help, I mean it's just matter of get opened to other possibilities, but nobody seems to even try, do we have to start writing vocal music asking (somehow) for an specific technique is not the Bel-Canto ? There's any hope we can turn off that vibrato please ?
  11. They did play jazz, watch 8:38, and then watch whole video if in doubts.
  12. Yes, we had that feature but it's not currently available, maybe we'll get it back soon.
  13. Thank you all for your comments, I think it will automatically sound more vivid in a real orchestra, I used the libraries into the Sibelius so I didn't program the modulation as it should, so it does sound with lack of dynamic contrast, later I might create a new recording.
  14. I would just add that the lowest C in 32'' is normally out of range, is only possible if you modify the tension of the patch and move all range 1 whole tone down, the lowest note is D. Also, not all orchestras have the 5th timpani.
  15. You and the Rain, for strings orchestra. A piece I wrote in 1 day, having a cold, being unable to go outside, waiting for my girlfriend to come to see me, while raining outside... Never have written so fast before, definitely she makes the difference.
