I want my food, therefore I'll upload here my idea for choral music piece.

I'm not sure if this one is going to have words or not, will think of that later and you can say your opinion about it.

My questions for you:

1. Is that a good idea? (melody harmony etc.)

 1.2 If not- what should I change?

2. How should I continue this piece. I mean, it's just two ideas presented one after the other and then together, it isn't a real music piece yet.

 so... what should I do with these materials?

 

Thanks :P

*Lets see if you notice the big difference between the pdf and the audio ;)

I think it needs a mixture of high, mid, and lower tones. When I first purchased a new choir VST to use in my DAW, I never saw the standard "Ahs" the same again. There are so many different tones, pitches a choir can make. 

Soprano, alto, bass, phrases etc.

What you've done here was set the foundation to what your piece can truly become. Now you just gotta change it up a little.

Personally, I would ditch the Ahs altogether and only keep a few sustains in there. Have a mixture of female and male choirs. Add in staccato, while a male or female choir do the sustains in either Ah, Oh, or Lah...and have a slightly higher pitched voice sing the melody.

Actually I abandoned this piece...

I mean, it's still in the computer, but I decided to make something more... singable (is this a real word? I meant something that is easier to sing).

Right now I don't have the money to purchase a good choir vst :(

I'm using piano instead.

 

*You can listen to the new piece under "choir" topic, under the name "Rain Prayer"
