First Proper Orchestral Piece

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I thought I would try to write an orchestral piece and I wanted some feedback on how its constructed and how I could improve. I wanted to just loop 1 similar idea and see what I could do with it. I plan on developing the main melody as it goes on so its not as repetitive

The ostinato could be cut down more as it is boring for more than 4 bars. Add some percussion to the piece too to add some bang to the piece! Also, can you adda score?

 

However, it is still nice to hear with the ostinato and light melody by the flutes.

It sounds nice, I liked the melody. Nice use of the pentatonic scale, and it's very good for the first time.

I bet you don't want to hear my first composition for a full orchestra XD

However, you have the same problem as me with the basses- repetitiveness.

I'm not sure it's a bad thing, but people told me so.

Since you're using a whole orchestra- you can change the bass instruments to make it sound a bit different.

Actually, I'm not that good with the orchestra myself.

Guess it comes with time and practice, like everything else.

 

Good luck with that,

please upload the next one when you finish writing it.

The ostinato is nice. there could be more melody over it. It ended in quite an awkward way.
