Here's my composition. It's for flute, clarinet and cello. Do you accept midi files?

Collab1.mid

I prefer them, since I'll most probably have the instruments' base, so I'll be mixing them all together. Although, I'd prefer if each midi track was labelled with what instrument it's to be played with. If it's the same order as in your quote, it'd sound like the attachment in very basic instrument sounds. Does it represent what you created? I'd be surprised if it isn't, because I like it haha

Now that I've heard your part, I might even adapt my own part more to fit it. I'll wait until more opinions are posted though.

 

-- For some reason I can't upload it on the forum, so I used another site to upload it. I hope that's not forbidden or anything, http://vocaroo.com/i/s16Fe2YIAiVk

Nice part @ilv! I love it!

I am writing my part now. It sounds like something I have never composed before, surprisingly.

 

Nice, I hope it generates new ideas and melodies for you, it always takes that one unusual track to expand one's imagination in composition.

I listened to a lot of Jazz and funk songs and apparently it affected my sense to write something like it. Actually, it is pretty swinging haha!

Now I'm scared to end the piece since it's going to be so radically and uncomfortably different... :ermm:
 

 

@Maarten Bauer can do some magic and set it up, the factor lies in the transition though. It will be nothing short of awesome however, the sudden change will be shocking as well as mesmerizing.

Here is my part.

I tried to make a sort of bridge between the fast part of Ilv, but I also wanted to have some swing in it. The Adagio part is meant to make it easier for @Monarcheon to compose a more classical part. I hope you like it.

I have attached the score in PFD so that you can see which notes below to which instrument.

I loved the slower tempo part, it's awesome!

I encounter a problem now though, my plan was to merge everything together not in their audio file state, but rather as .midi files (notes), then assign instruments to them. Unfortunately I don't have matching VSTi, I'll try to find something that fits though.

Does this version represent it accurately? Does it sound good enough? I don't know how the alto saxophone sounds incredibly different, but I assume the marimba(s) at least sound good enough. Still struggling with uploading issues..

The marimba can be clearer The passage beginning in m.17 is namely barely audible.

The alto and marimba seem to sound in two different keys. . . Or at least some notes are not correct. What I always do, is I give the saxophone part the sound of a bassoon. This makes it at least sound something like saxophone played with classical embouchure. Maybe you can do that too and this might also fix the 'tonality' problem.

@Maarten Bauer, I love your contribution. I had to tweak the end of mine or otherwise the transition from mine to yours would be awkward.

Wonderful! The baroque influence is evident, but the modern syncopations make it so cool! Love the transition!

Epic! I will create a transition that makes the change to your part more smooth!

 

Thanks! What could be cool is if you end your piece with a buildup on the dominant or something with a crescendo so the cluster chord comes out of nowhere.

That's okay. What do you mean?
