jawoodruff posted a topic in Chamber MusicThe idea behind the first part of this movement is the growth of material from one note to its full statement. The clarinet, trumpet, violin, vibraphone, and trombone all play there own material treated in this manner. Each statement introduces a new note to their material. The bassoon and bass provide a sonic backdrop to this unravelling. I plan on expanding on this idea in other works -this was a fun idea to work on. Hope you enjoy.
Reverie for Double Bass, Op. 25
luderart posted a topic in Chamber MusicThis is the fourth of my pieces that were previously published here on Young Composers forum but got deleted during the renovation of the website in late April - early May 2016 and that I am choosing to publish again. As I have previously mentioned when republishing such pieces, they number 181 and I will try to post some of the best of them from time to time. This is my "Reverie for Double Bass". It is the very first piece that I shared on Young Composers, back on March 28, 2012. I am still fond of it. At the time I introduced it simply with, "This is a short Reverie for Double Bass I wrote."

celloman99 posted a topic in Chamber MusicGuten Tag! This is one of the projects I have been working on this semester! Feel free to check out the concept behind it at this blog post: Composition Notebook: "Morning Birds" - the story. What I am attaching for ya'll is the full score (which includes the cues for the three different flute parts, but not the actual parts), one of the flute parts (so you can see what they look like), a MIDI rendering of all the orchestra and flute parts combined, and a MIDI rendering of just the orchestra part (Titled "Three Violin Version..."). One of the flaws of the combined MIDI file is that the flute parts are made up of several short fragments/'bird calls',as you will see in the attached flute part, and the players will be improvising which bird call they play when. In other words, it will be a much more organic process than a computer just playing them all in order, as happens in the recording. I think the MP3 of everything combined sounds pretty terrible and clamorous which is not at all the intent of the piece. I suspect that this chaos will be lessened considerably when real players are performing this. If anyone has experience writing this sort of thing, I would really appreciate any advice you'd have to offer. Also, I am happy to hear comments from anyone about this piece, whether they be about the orchestral writing, the special effects, or anything else. Thank you and enjoy!
Help with String Quintet
ComposingMonkey posted a topic in Chamber MusicHello, I'm new to this site. I only got into music about 3 years ago (I'm 19 now) and I need help because this is my first composition. So I understand most musical jargon, but I'm wanting to study Composition next year at a Music Conservatorium. Constructive feedback would be awesome! I know the piece isn't perfect which is why I need help!
The Anthem of Broken Dolls (Opus 25)
Guest posted a topic in Chamber MusicI would like to share with you my new composition. It was exceptionally painful and frustrating to finish, but I hope that those emotions added a bit of an artistic and melancholic spice to this silly little piece. Enjoy and thank you for listening.
