    Emotude

    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
  2. I don't think this is really a nocturne, but I composed it with the night in mind. It doesn't really flow that well in my opinion, but not really sure how to fix that. Please do let me know where to improve, as I do think this piece does need to be changed.

    "VCVCBCCO"

    Used Sibelius 7 and my Oxygen 61 midi keyboard to make this today in less than 3 hours total. Pretty happy with it - thoughts? Especially of my harmonic motion at the end? That's what I'm least sold on currently. Thanks - happy Thursday! Gustav Johnson
  4. Hey guys. First post, wanted to drop this in here before I start officially (attempting) to contribute to the forum. I've been composing for a few years now; self-taught, with inspiration from composers like Debussy and Satie, even though it may not sound like it as much as I try to emulate portions of their music in mine. They have a sound that's kind of hard to pin down, especially considering my somewhat limited knowledge of theory and my incapability of writing anything longer than a simple theme. So the problem is that I don't have issues with writing out sections, but moreso that I have trouble connecting them, or structuring them in a way that doesn't sound... I guess in a way that doesn't sound too disjunct. The flow of the music, I suppose, is what I'm getting at. Or sometimes it all just blends together a little too much and begins to sound bland. It may just be me though. Any tips? Also, sorry for the sort of messy sheets, I don't really pay much attention to the layout of certain things while I'm writing.
  5. I started this piece with the intention of trying something new and composing something a bit out of my comfort zone, which so far it's doing just that. Obviously though, it's very unfinished and it has a lot of polishing to do. For example, there's a lot of random whole notes in this piece that are just there for the sake of building chords and the switch into the B section seems a tad abrupt, though I think I like it that way. I'm curious as to what you guys think, please be brutally honest! But keep in mind that I am not a pianist in the slightest! I normally only compose choral music and I know that some of this couldn't actually be played how it's written. Anyways, please voice your opinion on it so far and if you have any ideas as to how I can improve on it and/or how I should continue it, do let me know. Thanks!

  7. I have composed a few nocturnes. This is my first one. It is very simple. Any advice for how to improve is of course appreciated.

    largo ostinato

    Here's a link to my piece: https://soundcloud.com/user-659082399-303084762/largo-ostinato I appreciate feedback. Technically what's happening: The piece is in 5/4, which gives space to the melodic lines, key of E flat, playing with G natural and flat. It starts with piano ostinato, adds a cello ostinato, successively adds 2 melodies and then combines the 2 melodies over the ostinatos. I created it using mixcraft pro studio 8 virtual instruments. Feedback on another website was to the effect that real strings on long notes have more dynamics. Do you agree or do you think the more flat, even strings works better?
  9. A year ago, I arranged the Divine Beast Vah Ruta battle theme from Zelda: Breath of the Wild for piano, by ear. This was my first major arrangement of a piece for piano. Here is the original: And here's my arrangement of the theme: And here's the score (yes, I know that some parts need to be moved around; this is not the final version of the sheet music): Copy of Zelda Breath of the Wild_ Divine Beast Vah Ruta.pdf I know the chords aren't exactly the same --- this was intentional, as I preferred certain chord progressions to the ones chosen by the original composer (like in measures 18-19). The feedback I've gotten so far is basically that the harmonies and arpeggios sound pleasant, but that it would be difficult (if not impossible) to play using two hands. I tried playing it on my keyboard, and yeah, I can attest to that. I'm also aware that the dynamics are kinda weird; I tried to do the best I could to get it to sound the way it sounded in my head. Does anyone have advice on how to make this more playable? Because I don't exactly want to get rid of any of the extra embellishments I added. Should I make it even more complex and make it for four hands, or remove parts to make it for two hands?
  10. I think this is a (proper) Fugue, but I would like confirmation, etc, fugue2?.mid

    Rain

    Another re-post 😊 It was a rather stormy weather of May, 2011. I remember I wrote this piece out of boredom because I can't go outdoors to do some gardening. (actually the original title of this piece was Song of Boredom 😂 and it stayed that way until sometime a month later in June when I decided to change it to Rain). While writing the piece, I kept on looking at the window. The rain was a bit gentle that time, and I felt relaxed. After typing in a few notes, the rain got stronger and stronger. Then a few hours later, everything went silent. I guess that explains the structure of the piece? Even today I'm still wondering where I got those "happy" tunes from a rather stormy inspiration 🤣 Hope you guys enjoy this! I'll keep on looking for old compositions that I can re-post here 😊
  15. Hi fellas, Normally, I only write music for piano. It’s the only instrument I have and the only instrument I can play - but recently I have decided it would be fun to take on the project of writing a Piano Quintet to help introduce me to the world of Chamber music. Unfortunately, as I have established, I have no experience writing for stringed instruments and I have no idea how to approach the task. If there are any tips and tricks anybody could give me about writing for strings and for writing chamber music. Thanks a million! James

    Soup (Lentil Veggie)

    Hi all! Home Economics doesn't exist anymore and The Food Network makes it look like you can't fry an egg without granite countertops, truffle oil, and a degree from culinary school. I thought I would take a basic recipe and turn it into an ear-worm. With any luck, the members of any choir that sings this and a good number of the people in the audience will remember how to make lentil soup forever. The pianist has to deal with accidentals and an irritating key signature, but the choral parts should sit comfortably for everyone, be easy to read, and it repeats, which should be user-friendly for high school chorus or amateur choral groups. How does this look? Thanks for taking a look!
  17. Just a short background: Arpeggia is the title of a piece I composed way back 2010 when I was still new to composing. In fact, this Arpeggia in A minor was the first piano composition I shared in this forum in March, 2010. The original post was actually still in the archives of this site, but I can no longer access the music file. Anyway, fast forward 8 years later, I decided to revisit the piece and edit it to a more "playable" form; but my edits are very minor because I want to preserve as much of the original version possible. So here it is, Arpeggia in A minor. Perhaps I derived the title from the word arpeggio, and I could still remember how fascinated I was with arpeggios at the time this was composed. Hope you guys enjoy one of my first compositions! I also wanna know your thoughts on my old style of composing (I believe my style has changed through the years. This was almost completely different from my latest ones haha!) 😁

    Steps to Follow

    This is my piece Steps to Follow. It is based off of a percussion piece that I found a while back called "Fractalia" by Owen Clayton Condon. I really like the echo pattern that he established in that piece, so I decided to play around with it and make a piano peice based off of it. I personally enjoy the sound of it and like how it turned out, but I am always looking for feedback/criticism, so please let me know what you think. Thanks 🙂 Note: The score is kind of a mess lol. At the time of finishing/uploading this it is really late, and I just could not bring myself to clean it up or try to fight Sibelius over organizing it.

    Der Wandrers Nachtlied

    Hello all! I've been composing for quite some time now, but I'm new to this forum. It seems like a really cool place though. Here's my first Lied I've ever written, a setting of Goethe's Wandrer's Nachtlied. I got a complaint from someone else that the music is "too depressing" for the words, but I disagree with him entirely. What do you guys think? Comments on the music are also encouraged. Thanks in advance. The poem and its translation can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wanderer's_Nightsong Also a quick note, the Gb chord in m16 is meant to function as an F# chord going to the B minor section, I just didn't want to use all those accidentals.

    Gymnopédie II

    Now and then, I go back to Satie, and write some shadow of what his great and inspiring music is. Gymnopédie II.mp3 Gymnopédie II.pdf
  22. Just finished a guitar track. I think it's in C# Minor - my guitar was tuned in C#. Forget what scale I used. Anyway, it was just something I messed around with. Mainly ideas thrown together over a central melody/rhythm I found on YouTube.
