  1. An experimental piece. I used galant schemas but used weird chromaticism with diverging lines in places. I dont know if it works but its fun.
  2. I'm composing this piece for a challenge where the challenge is to compose a romantic piece(romantic in the sense of love, not necessarily the era). What I think about when I think about romantic love is a complicated process that starts with sudden desire(pickup in momentum in the cello leading to harmonization in sixths is what I did to try to get that across), a friendly stage with exchanges, a lot like a friendship but deeper(this is what I'm at now in my piece, an exchange of 2 motives between the flute's motive from the first theme and a second motive in the cello, like 2 people exchanging ideas and seemingly a state of agreement(acceleration towards the cadence in both motives)), a state of anger and not wanting to be with the other person, and a final calming realization phase when true love is reached. This fits well with Sonata Form and so my piece is probably going to end up in Sonata Form, just unconsciously, because of the associations with the start of a romantic relationship. And Flute and Cello are 2 of my favorite instruments. I can't say that I have a favorite woodwind though, they are all great, except maybe the Recorder. But the Cello is my favorite string instrument. Yes, I know, the flute motive slowly shifts across the beats of 4/4 in the first 10 bars. That metric shift just kind of naturally arised from me developing the motive into the flute dominant First Theme. I am stuck though at the cadence in the next 8 or 9 bars. It feels like the Cello wants to continue rising in pitch as does the Flute, as well as accelerate even further to the cadence. But I'm not sure what to do. It's mainly the Cello I am concerned about. It's approaching treble register pitch and the treble register is hard, even for an experienced cellist(Eb4 is not that far off from G4, the note at which I would consider possibly putting the cello in Treble Clef). Right away you might be like: to which I would be like: So, what do you think of my piece so far? Any advice regarding the acceleration to the cadence? Are the 32nds in the Cello motive too fast?
  3. A march for flute and cello. Im working on a bigger project at the moment but thought I'd compose something else today.
  4. Hello everyone, I have been studying music composition for 6 months over books and the internet but since none of my acquaintances knows about music composition the feedback I receive is null. I would greatly appreciate that you could give me any. There is really many things I do not know and many doubts, so I will be thankful for any feedback! -------------------------------- About the song --------------------------------- The composition are six 30-seconds variations over the different greek modes (locrian exempted) in F. I set myself to follow some rules, such as using only diatonic notes (no raised 7th in minor modes either), an almost constant eight note rhythm for the middle voice and a similar beginning and ending of each variation for every mode. The original theme was the Ionian mode and from there I decided to write a similar 10 bar piece for each greek mode for practicing.
  5. I tried composing a more light hearted piece with more unusual ideas that makes fun of itself in a way.
  6. A minuet for solo flute. I thought about adding a cello accompaniment which I may do later.
  7. This piece is in 4/4 time but its in the style of the minuets ive been writing. I guess it could have the title, 'tempo di menuetto' to indicate not just the tempo but style of the piece. It can be played on the piano or for flute and cello which I like.
  8. This is a piece I wrote recently about a nervous auditioner (I think that’s the right word) in an audition for area or district band. It is supposed to be more on the theatrical side with some instruments representing people. There are four movements, each representing a part of the audition process. I will explain each one in depth:

    Minuet in D

    Hi! Minuets are trendy here it seems, and I've been recommended to try my hand at some. So here is a first minuet and trio for piano and flute. I feel it would be hard to dance on it, I realized I'm not very comfortable with a ternary rythm (and I forgot halfway that it was supposed to be a dance at all). The overall structure is: minuet1 - trio - minuet 1', where: minuet 1 is written in 2 parts for piano. It is made of 2 repeating sections [A] and [B-A']. A finishes on a half-cadence, B modulates and brings contrast, A' is same as A but ending on a perfect cadence the trio is in the key of dominant and the flute comes in. Its structure consists of 2 repeating parts [A] and [ B] (yeah, ok, I'll admit that I forgot A' and I was too lazy to change haha. But I think it's not too bad to have a bit less repetition) minuet 1' is the same as minuet 1 but without the repeats (thank god) Let me know if you have any comment/recommandation/suggestion/corrections 🙂 menuet #1 v2.mp3
  10. Im learning melody writing and using the minuet form. Ive written a few minuets for piano so far and i will most likely add a base for this melody.
  11. This is a piece I wrote last week. I have separated the ‘movements’ by one measure long rests, and I understand if that may seem a bit too long; I have made them shorter in my more recent pieces. The reason I named it “Try, Try Again” was because the second and fourth movements reminded me of someone making a mistake whereas the other movements sounded like someone achieving or succeeding. I also included a quote on the last page of the score that I felt went along with the title of the piece.
  12. The second movement of my piano concerto, I wrote it during the lockdown and I feel like it exemplifies my mood throughout. I'm particularly pleased with the brief piu mosso section. I wanted to upload it with note performer, although I currently don't have my finances in order. so I didn't, if I get it soon I'll re-upload it. Please let me know your thoughts, and I'm working on the final movement, as I'm not short on time.!
  13. I recently finished this composition and am looking for more advice. Considering this is my third piece where I’ve written for Strings, i think I’m getting better with writing for them. I can’t think of a name for it though so please recommend any possible names or ideas for names!
  14. Are there any Finale users who know how to add an instrument? I need to write a piece for an Alto Flute but when I go into Document Setup Wizard they don’t have it; only regular flute. Is there a way to add instruments? Btw I use Finale Notepad 2012
  15. Hey, I’m new to this website but I figured it’d be a good idea to get advice from other composers since I’m almost entirely self taught with composing and I could always use advice. Anyway here’s one of my pieces. I use Finale and some of the dynamics may seem too quiet or loud for an actual player but I most likely wrote it like that for making it sound the most ‘realistic’ when Finale played it back.
  16. I wrote this piece for the project of flutist Robin Meiksins, Where she play one piece a day for a year. I hope you enjoy it!!
  17. My hand at a relatively short miniature form created by another member on this forum @luderart I'll be adding some more here as I develop more confidence in writing these type of pieces. So far, this was an enjoyable exercise in brevity. Love it.
  18. Just joined here and decided to put one of my favourite pieces, my flute sonata which I wrote approximately one month ago.
  19. I've decided to do something completely different than my normal thing. I've never enjoyed 12-tone serialism, but I decided to give it a little try. I don't follow the rules entirely, because I wanted to create something that uses it, but still sounds accessible and not like overly-academic wankery. The concept of the piece is a musical setting of the final stages of the Voyager I space probe leaving our solar system. It will be made up of 5 "Movements" with little or no separation between. The flute is the probe while the piano is the sun and it's solar wind, particles, etc. early in the piece and other stars in the final movement. Since the probe is a non-living thing, I decided to go with a more robotic sound created using a 12 tone row (divided into four triads) and some of its' inversions. Again, to make it more listener-friendly, and frankly because I wanted to, I didn't stick to any real rules or conventions here. In the first movement "Termination Shock", Voyager I goes through the point in the heliosphere where the solar wind slows down to subsonic speed (as demonstrated by the slowing tempo) while the temperature rises a bit (warmer sounds from the "sun"). The movement starts with just the "sun" before "Voyager I" powers back up to send its' message home. I will post the other movements as I finish them...
  20. I started this quintet with the intention of entering this into a competition -so, I've been working pretty intently on it (to the point that it's all I think about). Here are the first 2 movements: 1. Andante: The first movement serves as a sort of introductory movement. The movement utilizes the short two bar theme presented in the opening (this theme also permeates large portions of the work as a whole). The theme is presented in all voices, leading to the establishment of a 'hopefully' hypnotic pattern -through which I play with the theme and introduce contrapuntal material. The structure is ABA'. 2. Allegro Con Fuoco: This is the movement so far that I've spent the most time on -and this is revision number 4. The opening two bars introduce an ostinato pattern that is taken up by ALL instruments within the quintet. This movement is meant to be faster than what I have set. I've slowed it down to give more attention to detail. 3. Adagio Semplice: To compliment the 2nd movement -and in stark contrast texturally- this movement is more of a mediation and prayer-like movement. The movement is slow and contemplative. At any rate, I'll post the final 2 movements once I've finished them. Hope you all enjoy these experiments.
  21. Composed some years ago, written in both contemporary and jazz styles. Hope you enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV76RLRVce4
  22. There's so much to be said -with sometimes not enough time to say it. The same is true of music. So many ideas, and yet... we're left with so much longing after each piece. This is the idea behind this work. The ideas are pretty basic. There's some dabbling in serialism, free atonalism, combining tonal systems with serial rows, and a little more. NOTE: The scores aren't that well done. I'm using Flat (a free notation software) since I can't install Finale or Sibelius to my chrome book -and I am moving the pieces from paper to there. I'll be updating the scores once my new laptop arrives and I can get Sib installed again. Until then, I've done my best in adapting to Flat. It's not a bad notation software (though the midi sucks). My apologies! Hope you enjoy!
  23. This is my first composition I wanted to put on here, and my first one I will count (All the others were either practice, arrangements, or incomplete and I wasn't comfortable counting them). So I guess this my Op. 1! It is for Flute, Clarinet in Bb, and Trumpet in Bb. It is very short, but I feel it's pretty okay for me atleast. I tried to make the trumpet stand out so I put the trumpet melody in Bb first, then Eb, then in G twice. For the final trumpet melody, I made the Clarinet and Flute switch from F to G major for a nice ending.
  24. I'm not finished writing this sonata yet, but I have finished the exposition of the first movement. As you can probably tell by its nickname, the inspiration to write this sonata was Franz Joseph Haydn. This is my first sonata for a duet that actually has a finished exposition. I finished the exposition of the sonata in an hour. I know Haydn is humorous, so I tried to be humorous with my sonata. There are a quite a few surprises in the exposition that I wrote. Here they are: Bar 5: Sudden entry of the flute and absence of the piano Bar 6: Sudden reentry of the piano Bar 10: Short diminuendo, like the theme isn't quite done yet Bar 11: Short staccato variant of the theme over a syncopated bass Bar 14: Sudden forte cadence, theme is now finished Bar 15: Piano dynamic in transition material right after a cadence at forte, sudden absence of the flute Bar 21: Forte dynamic when transition material is taken up an octave, flute comes back Bar 26: Piano dynamic yet again, descending trill motive Bar 41: Very busy texture as the repeat comes closer Bar 47: Sudden change in texture, sudden dynamic change as it repeats I'm wondering, is my sonata exposition Haydnesque in its nature? I tried to get a Haydnesque feel to it by being more humorous than serious with the music. Anything impossible for the flutist? Does it feel like a Molto Allegro to you(tempo is at quarter note = 140 BPM)? Or should I just take the Molto off and just have Allegro as my tempo marking? The audio ends at about 2:51 in the MP3. I am working on the development section right now. Flute Sonata in Eb.mp3 Flute Sonata in Eb.pdf
  25. **Re-uploaded due to file attaching issues** A piece written for a composition assignment. This piece is 12 tone and I have attached the tone row matrix I was working from. This is how I submitted it but I have a few issues with the tempi in certain parts as well as the general form. All feedback welcome ☺️
