24 Nocturnes - no. 1 in C Major

Recommended Posts

I have set myself a challenge of trying to compose 24 nocturnes all in different keys. This is the first one that I have attempted. I find it very hard to write in C major and as a result there are several key changes in this. Also, the piece seems to feel disjointed. If you have any ideas on how to improve this piece I would appreciate it greatly.

Yes, there are some nice changes in here. In general I find that if things are disjointed I've either gotten ahead of myself or introduced new ideas without first developing the previous one. In short, too many ideas. Also, when you start and stop that sounds disjointed. You might try forcing yourself to use an ostinato or a line that does not stop, as an exercise that may help you think more "continuous." Good luck to you! 24 keys is a big deal, especially if you're having trouble in C. You may have trouble in the others because you're not the kind of composer that likes to be in only one key? Nothing wrong with that, but you may have to rethink your paradigm.

Thanks for the feedback @Luis Hernández and @Ken320. I'll have to try that. I recently updated the piece to try and help it flow better. It still sounds like different pieces but I'll have to give that a try. Yes, also C major just feels like a tough key anyway.
