  1. This is the first time in a while that I've written something in swing rhythm specifically, but it seemed to call for it. It turned out to be a combo of contemporary/classical/jazz — I don't think there's a good label for it. I did use sacred geometry in this piece, which I'm doing all the time now, and seems to be working our pretty well. I'm open to any feedback or thoughts you have.

    My Life in a Nutshell

    I went over this piece once a teacher I had (on counterpoint) told me I should notate the different tempi for each instrument. What do you think? The world of polyrhythm-polytempi is wide. This is a canon in prolatio where every line is the same at different ratios.
  4. Hey guys. A couple of weeks ago I was just listening to some music, and a piece came on that I really enjoyed, but I have come to lose the piece and its composer. I've tried everything to find it, but to no avail. It would be wonderful if anyone could help me out if they happened to know what piece I'm talking about. I CAN give a little information about the piece that I've been using to search for the piece: It had multiple movements. It had a male narrator and a female singer. The subject matter had something to do with either one of the World Wars, but the piece was not written in immediate response to the war. Its newer than that. The title may have contained something about a train, but of that I cannot be certain. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, it would be great if you could respond because I really liked the piece. Thanks, Charlie Carroll
  5. So, you all should know Adam is my favorite living composer. He has written a new violin concerto specifically for Anne Akiko Meyers to premier. It premiered in San Diego early this month. There is a recorded live stream of the entire concert on facebook that I am going to link to. I think it is a next step in his maturing as a composer. He has thrown some new ideas and sounds into this piece that you wouldn't typically hear from him. He still stays true to his style, but he is branching out. I think it is a more free piece with more development. It is gorgeous and lovely and exciting and cool. Take a listen. I think you will love it - I hope you love it as much as I do. The concerto starts around minute 22.
  6. Hey y'all, This is something I've been working on for my church's small wind and string ensemble. I used alto recorder at the beginning because the only other winds I have are flutes and I wanted the more mellow sound. Any comments? Throw 'em my way! Thanks! (Please listen with good speakers or earphones. The poor midi quality makes some parts hard to hear the melody.)

    Waltz in B minor

    Hello everyone! I have yet another piece here for you, from my debut piano album "Ballerina". It´s a waltz this time and it´s a kind of minimalist waltz given the simplicity and the emphasis put on the melodies. Please give it a listen and feel free to let me know how you like it, I´ll be very glad to read your opinions. You can find the full album here https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina

    Thirteenth

    Hey everyone! I've been recently posting some of my piano pieces from my new album and this is yet another one of them. It's actually a very old musical idea of mine, I think it was one of my first piano pieces, but it seemed unfinished so I made some changes and additions to the original and the result is here. Feel free to let me know how you like it! If anyone's interested, you can listen/buy the full album here 💿https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina💿 Or here 📀http://store.cdbaby.com/cd/olivernosaczynskibohovic📀

    With You

    Hi everyone! This is yet another piece from my debut piano album "Ballerina", the piece is called "With You" and I wrote it back in 2014. This piece differs from other pieces on the album by it's structure. It's heavily based on chordal harmonies accompanied by slight melody, it's more of a moody piece I'd say while most of the other pieces are more melodic. Please take a listen and let me know! If anyone would be interested here you can listen/buy my album 💿https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina💿

    Farewell

    Hey everyone! This is a piece I wrote back in 2013 and I now recorded the piece for my debut album "Ballerina" which you can listen to or buy here https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina I hope you guys like it!
  13. I'd love to get your feedback. This is like a sweet lullaby, but with contemporary sounds and melody.

    80's pop song contemporary classical re-make

    Hey everyone! This piece is something unusual to me, as I was always writing my original music, but this time I made a re-make of a 80's pop song which was a major hit in Slovak radios back then. I have been asked by the artist himself-Peter Nagy, to do a different version, something in the romantic/movie piano style of my other compositions from the album that I gifted to him, and so I gladly agreed and here's the result. You can also listen to the original 80's version by Peter Nagy here. On the top there's the original version and down below there's my version. I hope you'll like it! P.S. my version is also included on my debut piano album which you can listen to or buy here https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina

    Snowflakes

    Here's a piece I was exploring the accordion.. While I wouldn't normally associate an accordion with snowflakes, it does make me feel like I'm in a log cabin somewhere.. Also exploring looser formats, chordal progression wise.. It gives it a more wandering, less structural feel.

    This was just an idea, and built on superimposed and overlapped small parts.

    Chopsticks

    This piece "came through me" all at once on a sunny afternoon.

    Reflections

    I think this is a sort of incidental music... The structure is simple: Part A Part B (everything reversed) It's a big atonal double canon.

    Dážď(Rain)

    Hi everyone! This is a kind of a minimalist piano piece of mine. It§ s called "Rain" because of the free form and due to the fact that except for the recurring theme, it is heavily improvised and it is supposed to remind of raindrops. I hope you will like it!

    The Oort Cloud

    I'd been thinking about doing a reduced version of a very old piece of mine, "The Oort Cloud," for a long time. I believe it was the first piece I posted here three/four years ago (which I've since deleted). It was interesting to go back through the "orchestral score" and see how much I've learned since then, and it was a challenge to keep it interesting with the limited instrumentation (not to mention the total absence of a second theme). I tried my best to use some minimalist techniques [subtle changing of rhythms and intense repetition, which is pretty much my entire knowledge of the genre ] and some more contemporary tonal and harmonic language than what I usually go for. Since this isn't really my wheelhouse, I'm happy to hear any thoughts, suggestions, criticism, etc. Thanks for listening! EDIT: Also, for those that may be confused by the title: the Oort Cloud is the outermost ring of gas, dust, and other interstellar debris that is theorized to circle around our sun at an extreme distance, even beyond the dwarf planets, asteroids and other (larger) objects of the Kuiper Belt.

    MOVING (for three clarinets)

    Two Bb clarinets and one Bb bass clarinet, all transposed. In some spots I could have used bass clef, but players didn't like it. Using several materials: Messiaen's modes combined, add rhythms, atonal series, interval sets, secondal, quartal, quintal harmonies, canon, etc... Meter is odd, but I think necessary here, otherwise the three clarinets wouldn't be coordinated. That's what Messiaen says: when there are more than one player, use meter... MOVING - SCORE.pdf
  23. I don't remember a piece for prepared piano in the forum... Perhaps there is. I've been studying and experimenting... I know this is not a "standard" to listen to. In fact, I think prepared piano deals with rhythm and colors. But I like it. This is not my piano, impossible in an upright. I tried to put some objects but it's quite hard and they fall down. So it's a virtual piano. LABYRINTH.pdf

    Labyrinth 2 (for una corda)

    Hi... Since I learnt of the Mosaic Form from Stravinsky (Symphony of Wind Instruments), among others, I fell in love with it. In it, there are a number of short parts that the composer put together in different manners. So, the concept of classical forms, and the concept of repetition is simply another one. This piece takes the idea of the labyrinth from the other side (compared to the one in the prepared piano piece). This one looks inwards and I wanted to write something "intimate". So, this work is written for another kind of prepared piano: it should be played with the una corda pedal all the time, and with a fabric on the strings of the piano, to get the sound. There are 11 fragments using always pentatonic scales (some of them with two scales at a time). There are two expositions of the material: Firstly in a sort of "disorder" (as looking for the exit), secondly in the "right" order. Details can be seen in the final page of the score. I am aware that this Mosaic Form is something unexpected (in fact that's its main purpose). You can't compare it to a AB or ABA form, or whatever. Its organization takes its essentials in other concepts. LABYRINTH 2 - SCORE.pdf
  25. Piece: http://picosong.com/pYjG/ Sheet music thus far: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-WkFk0zutrdZVVtM19CaVExcmM This is a composition I am working for school and the piece is inspired by japanese, jazz and other modern piano solo music. I am in the process of writing it and would love an opinion and perhaps a few tips or pointers as to how it is going so far and potential developments later on. I am able to play it on the piano but it will require practice of sorts XD Hope you enjoy!
