  1. Hey everyone! This is a piece I wrote back in 2013 and I now recorded the piece for my debut album "Ballerina" which you can listen to or buy here https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina I hope you guys like it!
  2. I'd love to get your feedback. This is like a sweet lullaby, but with contemporary sounds and melody.
  3. Hey everyone! This piece is something unusual to me, as I was always writing my original music, but this time I made a re-make of a 80's pop song which was a major hit in Slovak radios back then. I have been asked by the artist himself-Peter Nagy, to do a different version, something in the romantic/movie piano style of my other compositions from the album that I gifted to him, and so I gladly agreed and here's the result. You can also listen to the original 80's version by Peter Nagy here. On the top there's the original version and down below there's my version. I hope you'll like it! P.S. my version is also included on my debut piano album which you can listen to or buy here https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina
  4. Here's a piece I was exploring the accordion.. While I wouldn't normally associate an accordion with snowflakes, it does make me feel like I'm in a log cabin somewhere.. Also exploring looser formats, chordal progression wise.. It gives it a more wandering, less structural feel.
  5. This was just an idea, and built on superimposed and overlapped small parts.
  6. This piece "came through me" all at once on a sunny afternoon.
  7. I think this is a sort of incidental music... The structure is simple: Part A Part B (everything reversed) It's a big atonal double canon.
  8. Hi everyone! This is a kind of a minimalist piano piece of mine. It§ s called "Rain" because of the free form and due to the fact that except for the recurring theme, it is heavily improvised and it is supposed to remind of raindrops. I hope you will like it!
  9. I'd been thinking about doing a reduced version of a very old piece of mine, "The Oort Cloud," for a long time. I believe it was the first piece I posted here three/four years ago (which I've since deleted). It was interesting to go back through the "orchestral score" and see how much I've learned since then, and it was a challenge to keep it interesting with the limited instrumentation (not to mention the total absence of a second theme). I tried my best to use some minimalist techniques [subtle changing of rhythms and intense repetition, which is pretty much my entire knowledge of the genre ] and some more contemporary tonal and harmonic language than what I usually go for. Since this isn't really my wheelhouse, I'm happy to hear any thoughts, suggestions, criticism, etc. Thanks for listening! EDIT: Also, for those that may be confused by the title: the Oort Cloud is the outermost ring of gas, dust, and other interstellar debris that is theorized to circle around our sun at an extreme distance, even beyond the dwarf planets, asteroids and other (larger) objects of the Kuiper Belt.
  10. Two Bb clarinets and one Bb bass clarinet, all transposed. In some spots I could have used bass clef, but players didn't like it. Using several materials: Messiaen's modes combined, add rhythms, atonal series, interval sets, secondal, quartal, quintal harmonies, canon, etc... Meter is odd, but I think necessary here, otherwise the three clarinets wouldn't be coordinated. That's what Messiaen says: when there are more than one player, use meter... MOVING - SCORE.pdf
  11. I don't remember a piece for prepared piano in the forum... Perhaps there is. I've been studying and experimenting... I know this is not a "standard" to listen to. In fact, I think prepared piano deals with rhythm and colors. But I like it. This is not my piano, impossible in an upright. I tried to put some objects but it's quite hard and they fall down. So it's a virtual piano. LABYRINTH.pdf
  12. Hi... Since I learnt of the Mosaic Form from Stravinsky (Symphony of Wind Instruments), among others, I fell in love with it. In it, there are a number of short parts that the composer put together in different manners. So, the concept of classical forms, and the concept of repetition is simply another one. This piece takes the idea of the labyrinth from the other side (compared to the one in the prepared piano piece). This one looks inwards and I wanted to write something "intimate". So, this work is written for another kind of prepared piano: it should be played with the una corda pedal all the time, and with a fabric on the strings of the piano, to get the sound. There are 11 fragments using always pentatonic scales (some of them with two scales at a time). There are two expositions of the material: Firstly in a sort of "disorder" (as looking for the exit), secondly in the "right" order. Details can be seen in the final page of the score. I am aware that this Mosaic Form is something unexpected (in fact that's its main purpose). You can't compare it to a AB or ABA form, or whatever. Its organization takes its essentials in other concepts. LABYRINTH 2 - SCORE.pdf
  13. Piece: http://picosong.com/pYjG/ Sheet music thus far: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-WkFk0zutrdZVVtM19CaVExcmM This is a composition I am working for school and the piece is inspired by japanese, jazz and other modern piano solo music. I am in the process of writing it and would love an opinion and perhaps a few tips or pointers as to how it is going so far and potential developments later on. I am able to play it on the piano but it will require practice of sorts XD Hope you enjoy!
  14. Someone would kill me for this... I thinks it's playable, I've taken care about each string and intervals.
  15. Simple piece with piano + flute part playing 7 against 8, and a middle solo flute section using additive and changing rhythms and Messiaen's mode 5 in several transpositions. https://soundcloud.com/user-417172164/indigo-night
  16. This is what I see now from my window right now (well, I live in the mountains). And this is how I "feel" it with music. Yes, there are some measures (74-75...) where the flute is quite dissonant. It's not a mistake, I wanted it. For me it's beautiful (it means something, to me). link to soundcloud (mp3 player doesn't work, I'm afraid): BLOSSOM
  17. This is a piece I would really like to transpose with more strings and entire orchestra..but for now it remains written for 7 string guitars in B flat. Sheet music for each individual instrument is unfortunately in each single pdf. Sorry. Also, please forgive the midi sound haha. Feedback is much appreciated!Mark My Face.mp3
  18. This piece was originally written on my 6 string guitar in C#. I managed to get a nice sound out of the grand piano in Reason. I am still working on fixing the velocity to give the piano a more realistic and human feel. I love this though, it's fast, energetic, innovative and really a breath of fresh air to write.
  19. This little piece uses different contemporary techniques such us random dynamics, interval set, dodecaphonic scales, etc..., in a counterpoint background including canon (octava, motu contrario, prolation).
  20. Hey! This is my piece called Screw the Violin! for 2 Violas, 2 Cellos, Double Bass, Marimba and Percussion! It has lots of Metal/Djent idioms splattered around! You can listen to it in the soundcloud link! Hope you enjoy!
  21. Two improvisations I recorded yesterday. They are contrasting (in my opinion) - let me know what you think! I recommend listening to the "Soft" one first. Soft.MP3 Hard.MP3
  22. Hey everyone! Please let me share a newly recorded version of my composition "The Sea". Don't know If this is the right place for it, but it's a guitar composition so I thought It would fit well in the chamber music althought it's not a typical chamber music piece. There's a nice story behind this, I was at the summer vacation in Croatia and I once brought my guitar to the beach with me, it was in the late evening and the beach was all empty. And while I was listening to the waves and playing some harmonies that had the "sea feel" to me, a family of strangers sat so near to me as If they wanted to listen to my playing while watching the sea. After a while they left and so I thought that maybe they didn't like it, but they soon came back to the exactly same place near to me with a blanket and stayed there until I left. So I thought If they like it, I should make a composition out of what I was playing and this is it. It's played by me and the waves in the background are recorded in Ireland by my friend. I hope you'll enjoy! :)
