I Can't Forget You - Music for piano and strings orchestra

Recommended Posts


This is my first post on this website.

I am a radiologist doctor in Thailand who really loves composing music.

This song was originally written as slow ballad music sung in Thai language. Later I made this arranged version.

I record this on Sonar.

Love to hear your comment.


PS. You can also check other works I compose on this soundcloud account!

I like it very much, particularly the development of the strings along the piece.

Sometimes the volume of the strings is in disbalance.

1:40 the dissonance is very strong here.


Welcome... (by the way...I'm an haematologist...)


Thank you for the comment.

As for the dissonance, I intend the chord to be like that but it may sound weird. LOL

Thanks for a warm welcome!

That's fine, but you should know that your audience will perceive this as wrong against the rest of the music that's happened so far.
Your pattern of I - iv - I is very noticeable, and since 1:40 is an extension of this harmony, having the majors and minors superimposed doesn't match the energy you've built throughout. It literally just sounds like a wrong note. The same thing happens at 0:40 with the V/vi chord having a G natural in the countermelody but a G-sharp in the bassline. 
2:25 to 2:40 is extremely clunky. What sounds like a secondary dominant resolves to what sounds like a #vi chord before returning Dm7/G as a dominant pedal point to your tonic key. I can tell you have an idea of where you want your arc to go, but you seem uncertain on its execution.

I agree with @Monarcheon

If the atmosphere is tonal and consonant, a dissonance like that can be felt as a mistake in the writing.

In this background, if you want to put a disonance like that, perhaps you should prepare the audience first writing other weaker dissonances before. Repetition legitimize. If something odd is repeated, then it doesn't sound a mistake.
