  1. For the last few months I have been researching symphony orchestras and how they function. Im in part two of my research I would like to hear from you on specifically your experience in attending concerts. I want to know how you feel when you go to the symphony. How often do you attend the symphony or any classical music events? If not, why not? Do you buy tickets there or buy season tickets if available? Do you buy discounted tickets, student rush tickets, or get tickets for free from friends or family typically? How do you dress to go to said concert, why? If you answered no to the first question: how do you feel you would need to dress to the symphony? Do you park your own car or use the velvet if available? Do you buy drinks or food while at the symphony? If so what and if not why? Are food and drink even provided like a cash bar or reception? Are preconcert dinners provided and do you go to them? Do you feel that you need to maintain a certain level of concert etiquette during the concert? AKA no clapping between movements, no talking, sounding educated about the music, etc... What attitude do you feel the people around you have? Are the friendly, smug, indifferent, etc... Anything else you want to add?
  2. These are my "Two Sententiae for String Orchestra, Op. 309". It is rarely that I compose for orchestra. The last composition, a "Concertino for Classical Guitar and String Orchestra", was composed back in late 2015. I had shared it here almost two years ago. Here is its link: https://www.youngcomposers.com/t33864/concertino-for-classical-guitar-and-string-orchestra/
  3. Hello. I have question about solo bass singer. How low can a bass sing and yet be able to maintain a full resonating Fortissimo? For example, could it have the same Fortissimo low D (D2) as a Bassoon playing it in low D? Thank you.

    Overture in A Minor

    Here is a piece for orchestra that I have been writing lately.
  5. This here particular piece is one that has been in development for around 7 months now. Initially the goal was to have it sound solemn, however this expanded to a quick uplift from what it once was. The backstory was slightly odd to say the least, and at the times I was writing, I didn't even realize I was changing the mood of the song. So, now I'm looking for feedback, name suggestions, etc. What can I do to improve this song, what do you all think as of yet, seeing that its not even half complete and what would be an appropriate title for it? I'm bad with titles.

    Zdravas Mária(Ave Maria)

    Hi everyone! This is my first vocal/choral work to post here so far (If I don´t count a jazz song with my vocals which I´ve posted in the jazz section before). I wrote this one for strings, piano and soprano, for a talented Croatian singer Hana Huljić who also happens to be a great composer aswell. However, this is still a demo and the singer on this demo did not have any experiences with singing opera before and she is not a soprano, so it was a bit high for her, but I still love her performance very much. She´s a friend of mine and was very willing to sing the demo for Hana, I´m very thankful to her. I always loved Ave Maria songs, especially the Schubert one, and I always wanted to write one myself one day, and the day has come. Since there are so many Ave Maria already, I decided to write it for "Zdravas Mária" which is the Slovak equvivalent of the prayer. Please let me know how you like it!

    First post here, this is an orchestra work I did a while back as an ode to Virginia (My home state) it takes you through various regions of the state such as the Tidewater, the Appalachians, the Blue Ridge, and the Shenandoah valley. I was inspired to write this when hearing the intro for Appalachian Spring by Copland. I remember our teacher saying it was meant to capture a morning in the Appalachian Mountains (where my family is from), and thinking to myself that Copland nailed it, but I wanted a piece that would do the same for the whole of Virignia (Or at least parts of it). I sought to emulate this in the beginning of the piece. The piece concludes with my take on Oh, Shenandoah. A river that rolls through Virginia which I spent many summers on. Let me know what you think, and yes I know the score is horribly engraved.
  8. Hi guys, just released a raw edit of my new epic piece Emotude III for Piano & Orchestra, hope you enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awF9bZ2HpFA&feature=youtu.be Many thanks.

  10. Hi everyone! I am new to this forum, and this is my first topic here. I "composed" this very short Intermezzo, for bigger a bigger work I am planning to write. After assigning the theme first to the strings and next to the winds, I do not know how to continue (I'd like to develop the main theme with some variations, though). I leave the score and the Midi file here. let me know what you think about it and if you've got suggestions on how to continue it, please!

  11. Hi all, this is my first time here. Just wanted to share this and see what kinds of things you're hearing. It's very minimal and simple (but it builds!) I have little-to-no formal music theory/training, just love making sounds :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIlrHgd85Cg
  12. Here is the first scenes of my crucifixion composition. Ya'll let me know what you think please. I've tried to label each section with what part of the story it corresponds with. (I know it's pretty short but I had a time limit, and there will be narrations and skits in between each part). Also I realized that there's a part in 'Jesus in Gethsemane' in which the Flute I part cuts out for two notes, so sorry about that. The Crucifixion Score PDF.pdf

    BATMAN!

    I made an orchestral piece in November 2017 called "A night in gotham city". I hope you like it!
  14. Hi All! I'm curious to hear others thoughts on this piece I made this past spring. This track features various hardware synths including the Moog Minitaur & the Korg EPS-1, as well as a String Section and Solo Vocalist. Thanks in advance for your insight!
  15. Here's a piece I did years ago, which I recently put onto Sibelius. Again it's Baroque/classical(ish) but with extreme orchestral minimalism. Its very rough and def needs tweeking, but whaddya think? Hope you enjoy Mike

    Dawn and Sunrise

    So for the audio file I am attaching the YouTube video because I still can not get the MIDI to work right on Finale (it sounds like garbage when I try to save the MIDI file) so I am using the WAV file in the YouTube video (sounds way better). Unfortunately, the score is a little hard to see in the video so I recommend using the attached PDF for viewing and the video only for listening. Thanks for your comments!
  17. Hello, Please let me know what you think about the piece linked below! A separate PDF is also attached, in case resolution isn't good enough for careful review. Thanks, J Shu
  18. Here's a piece I did years ago, which I recently put onto Sibelius. It's Baroque/classical(ish) but with extreme orchestral minimalist bashes. Its very rough and def needs tweeking, but whaddya think? Hope you enjoy Mike

    Laoso

    I think i'm finished with this one although unsure about the ending. I wanted to write something a bit faster than I normally would. I don't have the score as Logic is terrible for that. Enjoy and comments welcome as per. Any feedback really is welcome, good or bad.

    Wasps

    I uncovered this piece from a while back. I'd started it with the intention of it being music for an advert but it grew (by accident, I got carried away) into something bigger. I'm still under the impression it's only really background music. Let me know what you think. This was the last version i put to MP3 so I'm going back through it now to 'clean it up'
  21. hello everyone, this is an old piece I composed months ago, when I am free recently, I adjusted its sound effect in Cubase, hope you like it, and every commentation is welcomed.

    Let me know what you see this piece fitting to, a movie scene, trailer, game, whatever it may be. On a side note, if you see yourself as a gifted mastering/mixer, please get in touch with me. I would love to pick your brain for some tips and pointers. Thank you in advance.
  23. Hello everybody! I just finished my Piano Concerto No.1 ''Octaves'' in f minor. The Concerto consists of only one movement: Allegro con brio. The music is, of course, written for piano and string orchestra. The goal for me to write this piano concerto was to learn more about how to write for piano and how to write in a more classical, early romantic style. Note that I added some more contemporary elements as well. The concerto is in free Sonata Form: Exposition - Exposition repetition with piano (classical) || Development (many more modern elements) || Recapitulation without the second theme. I ommited the second theme in the recapitulation, because I felt like this theme was already 'mentioned' too frequently. Furtheremore, ending with the first theme sounds fine to me. What do you think about the music? Particularly the development? *The lay-out of the score still has to be done. Piano_Concerto_No.1_''Octaves''.mp3 Maarten

    Ninian's Lilt

    This is a piece written by my grandad, Paul Lawrence and orchestrated by his friend. https://youtu.be/iK1xhrvcmqw
  25. Hi all, I had this idea for piano but wound up trying to orchestrate it over the past few days. I'm open to any suggestions and comments. Also, a question: saving MIDI out of Finale has been sounding terrible lately. The instruments all sound terrible and cheap. AND as you'll year, some of them have the piano sound swapped out for their normal sound. I am at a loss for what to do. I can save it as a WAV file which works well but I can't share WAV's on this site. I did not have this problem with it before so I was wondering if anyone knew if it's some sort of glitch that can happen in the software. Whatever is causing this, it's extremely annoying and it definitely detracts from the experience of listening to it. Thanks!
