  1. Hey Youngcomposers! Been a part of this community for years, and I'm so glad to see it's still growing! I wrote just a little adventure piece with some Celtic influences. I hope you enjoy it! I had a ton of fun writing it. Edit: I also threw this piece with some other ones on spotify. Feel free to take a listen! https://open.spotify.com/album/5I1tcYvpdeea9p3MQ5nrOQ?si=juYyyaajQVKWafkLuKM21Q
  2. Clarinets commonly use two keys for their instrument - Bb and A. However, Cornets, the lead melody section in concert bands and brass bands, only seem to use a Cornet in Bb. This would be normal - after all, there is no Trumpet in A - but I have found records of Cornets in A existing. Recently I was looking at the score for Elgar's Land of Hope and Glory. The opening clearly shows a brass section of 4 Horns in F, 2 Trumpets in F, 2 Cornets in A, 3 Trombones and a Tuba. Secondly, the ABRSM Music Theory in Practice: Grade 5 book shows it. The transposition chapter includes transpositi
  3. Fanfare for My Brother Score.pdf In a passing conversation, Dr. Thurman had told me about how he was selecting repertoire for orchestra brass literature that included euphonium. This topic has always been a “thorn in the side” for euphoniumists worldwide especially for me as a compsoer. Although I knew they would probably never be played, I would write orchestra music with euphonium in college hoping one day the orchestra world would fall in love with instrument. Reflecting on that “pain”, I told Dr. Thurman I was going to rework a piece specifically just for him to conduct and
  4. So... I want to compose more for orchestra and begin to build a decent corpus. Only thing... is that I'm more knowledgeable on string techniques and writing -with a growing understanding of woodwinds. Brass are my main issues... I just don't know the best ways to compose for them! I get that they can play soft... I understand that trombones and horns can provide nice padding to any texture -but, I'm scared to death to use them because I don't want to overpower the winds and strings. I can hear the brass instruments in my head (which is a good thing for orchestration) -but I still am hesitant t
  5. Fin.mp3 A short piece intended for film
  6. You may need to turn your speakers/headphones up, i've been having some problems bringing my mix level up. Let me know what you think.
  7. Let me know what you see this piece fitting to, a movie scene, trailer, game, whatever it may be. On a side note, if you see yourself as a gifted mastering/mixer, please get in touch with me. I would love to pick your brain for some tips and pointers. Thank you in advance.
  8. Just some music I put to a slideshow of some stunning pictures I found on YouTube. Feedback very welcome 👍
  9. Again, I was not sure whether this qualifies for the chamber music or the large ensemble category, but here it is. Powder Peony Waltz is a Viennese waltz written for whatever group of instruments I like (modified orchestral ensemble with ornaments in the form of a piano and celesta). I know that the transition between different keys is extremely awkward and chord progressions are not very fancy, but I was simply asked to write a quick small piece for dance class at my high school for their annual ballroom dance show. I intended to make this sweet, flowery, and light. Thank you for listening an
  10. Approbation - approval; commendation.
  11. With this I used a lot of the new software I've purchased from 8dio, except the cinema trailer sound effects which were bought seperately. I'm still pretty new to all of this new software and sounds so this more experimental if anything. There are literally thousands of sounds with these new software bundles and the ones here are just a few out of the thousands of others. This makes me really excited about the possibilities. Simple chord progression etc. Hope it sounds ok...
  12. This is an overture that I made dedicated to the state of Washington, it is called "Washingtonian Overture". As i'm only 15 (soon to be 16), I haven't had any professional training on music composition, so I would appreciate some feedback on this. Thank you for listening! Programs Used: Sibelius 7.5, Noteperformer
  13. Title: The Narcissistic King of Latharus Description: A king who comes as an embodiment of oppression, sadness, terror, fear and knows his kingdom shall rise against him. Minor chords: Used to express the sadistic nature of the king. Major chords: Used to express the fight for justice in which the oppressed will reign. Low Points: Created for the listeners to feel the king as he ponders menacingly. To express the death toll set upon those who are weak and under his leadership. High Points: Created for the listeners to feel the initiative of an
  14. A small prelude written for my English class - background music for a model based on the setting from A. Huxley's "Brave New World". In this composition, I tried to reproduce the cheap and ignorant, grotesque cheerfulness of Huxley's bizarre world of artificiality. Also, I thought that the concept of all-seeing eye would fit the dystopian nightmare. The pillar of this prelude is my loose improvisation in A major - one of the most happy and cheery keys, in my opinion. Thank you for listening!
  15. With this I tried to tell a story about a Duke that belongs to royalty who is very delusional and twisted. I tried to do something I don't normally do with instrumentation and I attempted to go for the film score level...
  16. This is a looping background music for a battle scene. Here is the scene where the music is supposed to be played: I appreciate any suggestions on how can I improve the track :)
  17. I actually saw these chords researching on a blog where a guy was teaching about minor and major thirds: Em - Gm - Em - Cm I thought they sounded good and decided to make something out of it. Edit: Listening to this a few I noticed a few things I should and shouldn't have done. 1.) The start of the harp arpeggio was too loud, it should have been a quieter note which would've led into the rest section better. 2.) Drums/timpani should've been louder and sustained a bit more (still trying to work with Stormdrum) 3.) Perhaps there was a bit of clashing. 4.)
  18. (Since this thread has an unfinished piece and is video game related based on the same game I wasn't sure if this topic belonged to the Incomplete section or video game section. I apologize in advance if I am mistaken.) I have three tracks here: 1st - Is the one I've just now recently started working on. Mass Effect is one of my greatest games of all time and Clint Mansell composed my all time favorite theme song from Mass Effect "Leaving Earth" which I will post as well. And if you've played the start of the game while his theme is playing you'll probably burst into tears like I did
  19. This march was written by me in 2014 for a student's band, but unfortunately, it has never been performed. The syntax tries to follow the structure of a classical march (with repeats, introduction, trio, etc.). I'm up to write a better ending for the piece. I think after D.C. al Fine, I should add a dominant 7th svorzando chord in eighth time, also staccato maybe, and end with a tonical chord with glissando (sol-la-ti-do) for the instruments carrying the lead melody. Recorded with EWQL's Symphonic Orchestra Gold Edition.
  20. I am trying to compose something for a orchestra with a lot of wind instruments, wood and brass, and I am not sure if they can actually continuously play, in example, an arpeggio for minutes or something like that, without rests. How long can they play? What are the rules? Or what do you recommend? Thank you.
  21. A maxixe, a Brazilian dance.
  22. What are some good pieces to study brass chamber music writing? I have an assignment to write a brass duo/trio (I chose a trio) due Friday and I haven't been able to find anything decent.
  23. It seems to me that brass in the orchestra is reluctantly used, held back for the big explosion, almost like percussion. Particularly in the romantic era/ nineteenth century (whatever you want to call it). I understand as time has progressed that brass has had its wondrous moments of melodic bliss but they are quite few and far between. Mahlers Funeral March in his 5th symphony is a good example. I'm hoping you guys can prove me wrong by presenting a work (or part of) from any era, could even be one of your own works, that displays a good use of the Brass ensemble. It would be grand if you co
