  1. Good morning (at least where I live 😅) 🙂 I wanted to try to write something for cello solo, with the (I'd say rather poor) knowledge I have of the instrument. Here's the result : Have a good day 🙂
  2. Hey gang, I posted this piece earlier when I was in the middle of writing it. Here is the finished product. This is the piece I composed over the spring semester during my first semester of composition lessons at the university I am attending. Please enjoy and let me know what you think! (P.S. Evidently when you use Petrucci font in Finale, the tremolo stops working, so that's why it appears in the score, but is not in the MP3 [do the midi problems ever end...?])
  3. **Re-uploaded due to file attaching issues** A piece written for a composition assignment. This piece is 12 tone and I have attached the tone row matrix I was working from. This is how I submitted it but I have a few issues with the tempi in certain parts as well as the general form. All feedback welcome ☺️
  4. Guten Tag! This is one of the projects I have been working on this semester! Feel free to check out the concept behind it at this blog post: Composition Notebook: "Morning Birds" - the story. What I am attaching for ya'll is the full score (which includes the cues for the three different flute parts, but not the actual parts), one of the flute parts (so you can see what they look like), a MIDI rendering of all the orchestra and flute parts combined, and a MIDI rendering of just the orchestra part (Titled "Three Violin Version..."). One of the flaws of the combined MIDI file is
  5. Hey there, Here is another piece which I have been working on this semester! I really need to come up with a fun title, so if anyone has any ideas, please share! Also, I am happy to hear any comments on this work. It is in four movements, and I hope that you enjoy each of them (my personal favorite is the third one - 'Largo').
  6. Hi all 🙂 Just wanted to give it a try to a duet between a recorder and a cello... Here it is ☺️
  7. My master's degree is starting to draw to a close, and I'm very aware that every piece I write now will be one of the last while I still have my tutor. For that reason, I've really tried to push myself beyond my current boundaries wherever possible. This piece, while not incredibly 'contemporary' sounding I suppose, in some ways represents the culmination of my efforts and explorations while at this institution. I've pushed my harmonies and chord progressions as far as I'm personally willing to right now, and also used some new string techniques that I'd not really explored before. Some o
  8. Sopran/Soprano: Anđela Todorović /Cello: Mateja Nikolić/Piano: Veljko Nenadić Composer: Veljko Nenadić 22.12.2018. Belgrade Philharmonic Hall, Serbia.
  9. @ComposerMITA wrote a piece a few weeks ago based on a concept of lines which function relatively independent of one another and which also change 1) tonal centers and 2) modes every couple measures. It sounded like an interesting experiment, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I-dunno, I don't hate it exactly, but it sits with me the same way that free jazz and 12-tone music do. *shrug* It's definitely a good exercise in modes, in part writing, and in trying to make each line work on its own regardless of the others. The original project requirements call for no thought given between the l
  10. This is an original composition by me Christian "Cj" Rhen featuring flute, clarinet, trumpet, violin, cello, and piano. This will be performed at various events and professionally recorded by me for competitions and college apps. Tell me what you think. Instagram is @wind_player1
  11. Hi guys here's a 9min preview of my new piece Emotude for Piano & Cello. Full 16min recording is available at https://mikebat321.wixsite.com/michaelbates, also soon released on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon etc. Hope you like. Thanks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zyh0E8JI-yw
  12. I use an electronic loop as an element to provide atmosphere although it's more chamber work than electronica. I've cranked up the piano click intentionally. If you are scratching your head after hearing this, 'that's different', or 'hmm', then I have succeeded.

  14. Okay so here's my first kind of 'major' piece I've written for my degree. It'll be performed by a professional ensemble in May, and I'm sending off the score this week. The brief was to write a piece of maximum length 12 minutes, for an ensemble of maximum size flute/clarinet/perc/2 violins/viola/cello/bass. After a bit of agonizing over what on earth I would do, I did what usually works for me and just sat down and put some notes out to see what happened, and then went from there. The piece is kind of loosely following around a character as he explores a world. I haven't put too much m
  15. Another piece with not much in mind but trying to be free and expressive for background music. I also have new software by Spitfire which i'm obsessed with. Feedback and criticism welcome.
  16. My submission for the Winter Competition. It was written pretty hastily over the past week or so, after previous attempts for the competition didn't pan out. All things considered, I liked where it went in the time that I had to write it. I hope you enjoy it.
  17. Hello all, I am putting the finishing touches on a work for solo cello which utilises several extended techniques and have been struggling to find a suitable Italian term for one. The passage in question requires that the bow be drawn over the strings with less than the usual pressure so that the sound is thin and glassy (mostly upper overtones are heard) rather than the normal full tone of the instrument. It is supposed to be in the usual part of the string and not close to the bridge so ponticello would not be the correct term. Flautando came to mind but I have always understood this to
  18. Hello everybody! Here is a little piece written for an assignment with the theme ''Self-portrait''. I was assigned the cello as the instrument to write for. The duration of the piece had to be approximately 1 minute. The piece shows my most obvious characteristics: I am full of energy, but I can also be very still and I can be driven by my emotions quite a lot, haha! The Russian title of the piece Меня зовут Мартен is, because I notice that Russian composers like Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Tchaikovksy inspire me a lot. What do you think about the piece? Any commen
  19. Hey guys, just a short snippet of what Im working on atm, Emotude for piano and cello. It's still rough around the edges, but Its gonna be epic, about 30mins long. Wish me luck! Mike
  20. Hey everyone! It's been a very long time! I first joined here around a decade ago, and never stopped composing! I've since moved to Sweden from the US, and am studying composition at a conservatory here. I wanted to share my first big project from last term, where we were to compose for a chamber ensemble of fantastic musicians (Norrbottens NEO, in case you're interested). As first years, we weren't on their actual recital and were encouraged to write music as difficult as we wanted and try new things. Unfortunately, their percussionist was ill on the day of the rehearsal/recording
  21. A piece I wrote one day during the summer holidays. https://youtu.be/IPhrPxi4l8Q
  22. Hi everyone, Here's a short piece for piano trio I wrote over the summer. Let me know what you think and things I should keep in mind for future pieces. A clearer PDF score is attached below. Thanks! J Shu
  23. Hello! [Partly the description in the program booklet and youtube video] Maarten Bauer – Melodrama No.1 ''The End of His Story Started Here,'' Op. 45. 11th of August 2017 Dedicated to all the victims in concentration camps during World War II. The music begins at circa 2:00 On the 18th of November 2017 (one of the) most prestigious composition competition(s) in the Benelux took place: Prinses Christina Compositie Concours. I submitted my Melodrama No.1 ‘’The End of His Story Started Here’’ and to my surprise I won the first price of competition! I cannot express my grat
  24. Hi everyone! I wrote this piece, "Penumbra", at the request of a teacher, and I liked how it came out. The inspiration musically was based around progressive rock and jazz fusion structures and harmony. I have only a little experience with clarinet and cello, so I'm not sure whether all of the fingerings are ideal. I'd be very grateful if any players of those instruments could give me feedback on that. Penumbra.pdf Penumbra.mp3
  25. This is my first post on this forum, I am looking to get some feedback on a piece I have been working on recently. The chord progressions are of constant structure, non-diatonic major chords, switching to non-diatonic minor chords for the second section. Be warned, I am a big fan of dissonance; if it's too much for you please don't hesitate to include that, I sometimes go a little over the top after listening to the same thing over and over, and I don't realize until later. euphoralgia.mp3
