My first composition for strings!!
mercurypickles posted a topic in Chamber MusicAs the title implies, this is my first composition for strings. Coincidentally it's also my first thing in a sonata like form. Tell me what you think! I don't shy away from constructive criticism. As a note: I do enjoy dissonance, both as a composer and a performer, but I know that some people do not enjoy that in the same way.
There's a certain Slant of light
mercurypickles posted a topic in Choral, VocalThis is a piece I wrote for a competition in my area. I entered it in the vocal ensemble category, here is the description I had to write for my submission: "The poem which was used as the text for this piece deals with themes of heaviness and despair. While the music is written in the major, a mode some would consider to have connotations of lightness, it is here used to convey a sense of hopeful melancholy. The poem speaks of a weight associated with winter, and of a despair and questioning of existence. Due to this, it could be that Emily Dickinson was describing a kind of seasonal depression, a heaviness that’s associated with winter and is easier to bring to mind when your surroundings suggest it. Another reading is that she is speaking on the inevitability of death, and how that sense of despair is an unavoidable part of the human experience." Please let me know what you think of it, feedback is extremely valuable to me and I really like hearing other peoples thoughts on my music. There's a certain Slant of light.mp3

Two Preludes - G minor and E flat minor
mercurypickles posted a topic in Piano Music, Solo KeyboardHi! Here are two preludes I've written (working on more). The G minor was written improvised and bears some resemblance to the Chopin Prelude in E minor. The E flat minor was an old sketch that I went back and revisited. Feedback would be wonderful, as it helps me improve my own writing.
Erlkönig (Rev. 1)
mercurypickles posted a topic in Choral, VocalAlright, I made some revisions to my piece. Not everything with the MIDI version is perfect (gradual tempo changes straight up don't work), and when I tried to add dynamics my computer crashed so there isn't any of that here either. But hopefully this will at least give you an idea as to where this thing is going.

Yes, Another Choral Arrangement of the National Anthem
MDErvin posted a topic in Choral, VocalI have been assigned to create(arrange) this piece, I am worried it is too dissonant and a bit too unfamiliar. I changed the instrument sounds because it is easy for me to work with any other sound than the default vocal samples. Any constructive feedback is welcome.
