Fermions and Bosons

Recommended Posts

 

This is my composition called "Fermions and bosons". I had an idea that I will use only two voices, both moving in opposite directions - sometimes simultaneously, sometimes in form of canons. You can see that from the beginning until the very end I respect those rules that I imposed on myself. I tried to make it as interesting as possible, so I used different textures and different scales.

 

Feel free to leave any impressions or suggestions that you have.

It's a nice little exercise. Have you heard of intervallic mirroring? This is kind of the first step to that where everything is used diatonically. I like how you manage to keep a chord progression going despite the canonic rules you imposed on yourself.
You're right that the sequence gets a bit limiting as you go on. The changes were nice, but I feel like you could have added an extra rule for yourself to maximize the sonorities possible.
Nice work.

Thank you very much for such response. I am not familiar with the term "intervallic mirroring", when I type into google, I got a lot of different stuff, for example "negative harmony" etc. Can you send me some useful link with right definition, or can you recommend me some quality book on that subject?

Making chord progressions was the most interesting part (and most fun) in making this composition, because I needed to really construct charts to find out which notes will give which chords in next part of measure, and I found out really interesting ideas there. I though maybe to "loosen"rules, but at the end I'm satisfied with the result.

Thank you Luis. After all, the most important is fact that music can keep interest :)

Look up Bartok's "subject and reflection". You'll see that the pitches relate chromatically to the center. up and down depending on the hand.

I found it, it's indeed very interesting way of composing, worth getting more in depth in to it :)
