Starting to compose - first tune for strings

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello everyone. It's my first post here in youngcomposers forum. So, I decided to start composing! My goal now is to compose a short piece every week, with some kind of limitations, to keep my work organized, more interesting and asking some research. To get started my limitation now was simple - write melody first and then harmonize it. So it's my first tune for 'one tune in a week' challenge, and my first composition for strings!  Sounds a little silly, but I had some fun while composing this, and that I think is very important! 
Critiques and feedback are more than welcome! 🙂

Nice composition for me. If you are just starting, you are starting well! Very variegated voices of the strings and much fantasy in the development.

Congratulations!

Thank you for your comment and motivation! Its not my first composition though, I have composed few songs before (in jazz style), but nothing for past year. Just now I'm trying to write something every day.

I appreciate the way you move the harmony around. To me, the first half feels more dissonant than it actually is, but the ending has a much more tonal flavor. A nice juxtaposition. Keep it up with your challenge to yourself. That's a great way to gain new skills.

Thanks for nice words! I see what you mean. I wasn't doing it on purpose, but I think I just felt like that unconsciously while writing. I'm glad that I took harmony lessons at school pretty serious, although now I study jazz performance and it has almost nothing to do with it. Thanks again, I'll try to keep on writing!
