The paint and paper

Recommended Posts

Wasn't sure whether or not to expand this, but I used the all-interval tetrachord constraint to build this piece. It's a little jumpy, but so is the source material, in its own way.

I'm sure the theory behind this is complex and staggering, so I'll leave that bit alone. From a listener's standpoint, it was an interesting ride. This isn't music that I'm used to listening to and it seemed quite random, especially in the middle section. The music didn't seem to match the lyrics, but again, my palate isn't used to this kind of music. Take this with a grain of salt.

The notation was great. Not sure how playable the piano part is—certainly beyond my abilities. Looking forward to more of your works!

Nice piece. The vocal melody is a bit static, except in the middle part, not typical of this, or similar, style. Having text, if all that's needed is said, I would not expand it, or perhaps some short piano solo part.

It's from a work called "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman so I was considering expanding it to include the struggles with the narrator's relationship to John, then her mental breakdown at the end, adding 2 more movements. But this may be enough...

It works.

Any opinions on expanding it to a three movement sort of thing?
