Hi and thoughts on this piece?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, this is my first post on the forum, and I thought I'd just ask your opinions of this semi-improv piece I wrote on my keyboard. Sorry if the recording quality (or my quality as a pianist) is lacking. I'm not really sure what genre this falls into either. But at any rate, hope you found the piece interesting.

Hello and welcome to the forum!  I feel like you create some really interesting harmonic progressions and some ostinati that bring lots of energy and drive but then at the midpoint of the piece it sounds like all that kind of fizzles out.  If you ever decide to notate this and try to make it into a formal composition I'd suggest finding that midpoint (~2:40) and composing a more convincing transition into some kind of ending (the ending you have also kind of sounds like you just stopped at a certain point - it could easily have ended at 4:04 - that chord sounded pretty final but then you continued it).  Thanks for sharing!

Thank you, I think you're absolutely right haha, there is definitely a loss of meaning around the midpoint. I think it was partly due to my improvisational inexperience. I'm really happy to hear you liked the harmonies though, I put most of my effort into harmony when writing. This was mostly just an amassed collection of riffs I had tried to connect together using improvisation. I tend to struggle to transition between motifs. Anyway, thanks again for your comment! 🙂
