Storm (Tweaks and Suggestions pls?)


Recommended Posts

First piece that I feel accomplished after writing, any tips or suggestions would be greatly desired, even if the smallest or opinionated things.

I hear an exercise in non-functional harmony when I listen to this. It's melancholically unsettling in that way, which is easily what you could have been going for. Is there something in particular you weren't sure about that you wanted to ask us about? Engraving? Chord structure? Progression?

I think the harmonies are nice, often original and very beautiful. The level of dissonance is, I would say, slight, in fact you resolve many times in consonant chords. This is not bad, of course, is simply to locate your writing here. Sometimes it reminds me to Rautavaara (let's take him as a "God", I love his music).

I have only one suggestion: you don't use counterpoint (almost) at all. The chordal homophonic writing is nice here, where the harmony is strong. But some section with a sort of counterpoint lines would be contrastingly nice, because the piece is rather long (almost 8 min.)

All in all: I like it.

 

PS: Ah yes, the viola in treble clef is odd.
