  3. Hello! I was commissioned to write an orchestra piece, and I have just finished my first draft of the piece. I would like to hear your comments/criticism. Keep in mind, I have a 3.5 minute max time (with a 10-15 minute rehearsal time, as it is for a summer concert), and I wanted to fit in as many textures and ideas as I could with easy to rehearse parts. A big part of my style is to create "samplers" of the many ideas I have and focus less on making it a completely cohesive "piece." I use a few melodies/bits that stay present throughout and build upon those. Thank you, and if yo
  4. this is my new piece in minimal style, hope you like it, you can give me some suggestion if you like. the video: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1Zv411h7ZN/
  5. Hi, This is the newest movement of my orchestral project, Suite of Minimalism. I cannot decide if I am fully happy with it like the other two movements, and I would like your idea of how the ending could be improved, and if you guys even like it. Philip's Time Machine has some of my favorite moments of music I have written yet, but I can almost tell the second half of the piece sounds rushed. Maybe I am crazy though. If you guys agree and give me some pointers, I will probably spend more time working on it and be back here in another few weeks.
  6. Hi everyone! I am a 17 year old composer looking to improve and share my music! I love creating music and leaving my footprint on the musical world :). After a brief hiatus and a sudden burst of inspiration, I completed the second movement of my biggest (yet) composition project - a suite made as an hommage to minimalism. This is turning out to be some of the coolest music I have ever written, and the most proud I have been of my own music yet. If you have not heard the first movement - Groove in 5/8 - yet, check it out on my profile! I hope you enjoy "Amongst the Ocean on a Speedy S
  7. I am writing a Pet Suite. I have 7 animals with me (3 dogs + 4 cats). Each one is unique. I am writin a couple of pieces for everyone thinking how they are and I feel about them. Byron is my biggest boy. He is very active, but tender with other dogs, with cats, children... The music is in a minimalit style. I listen Philip Glass Studies almost every night, I love him...

  8. Hi guys, I am posting one of the pieces for solo piano, which I wrote for the movie. Feedbacks are very appreciated!
  9. HELLO!!! Here is my piece called "3-4-5". I know, the title is pretty strange. That is why I am adding pdf file with the notes, so you can check it and find out, why the piece is called this way! Otherwise, if you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to leave them here or in PM. (Hopefully, pdf is not empty this time) Wish you all the best!
  10. Hello everybody! Here is my piece called "Factory". So basically, the title says everything about the idea. In this piece, I try to convey the "chaos" of XXI century, to be exact, work in the factory. So I thought the best way to recreate the feeling of it would be to use a few minimalism techniques. Hope you like it and enjoy! I attach audio file and notes in pdf file, you can find all information in there.
  11. Please listen until the end. Feedbacks are very appreciated!! Enjoy your life <3
  12. Sketch_No._149.mp3 So I know some of you think piece is garbage and that's okay. I quite like it. Congrats if you make it to the end and understand it.
  13. 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 g
  14. Hi All! I attempted a minimalist work. I've always been intrigued with this genre, and really get into the "trance"-like grooves that the rhythms create. Like many things, it's a simple concept but to do it well is difficult. The body percussion in the middle of the piece is "played" by percussion instrument sounds in this demo. Let me know what you think! Thanks, Gustav
  15. I also like minimalism, so, now and then, I put it in practice, just for fun: tonal, modal, phasings, additions, substractions, double valor of notes, modulation note by note, etc....
  16. Experimenting with a bit of minimalism in a really grand, cinematic style, with exception of the V section, of course. I quite like the results, even if the piece is a little bit too simple.
  17. This is my first sonata, it has two movements. In first, I played with the esthetic of minimalism, and in the second I clashed few different styles in rondo-like form to get some comic but still captivating effect. Feel free to give any comment, advice, suggestion :)
  18. Written on piano, used Mixcraft for editing.
  19. Regina coeli (Queen of Heaven) is a latin verse and chant for the Easter Holidays. In the spirit of 2016's Easter, I made this composition for regular SATB choir with the following syntax: The sentences of the verse before every "alleluia" are repeated twice. Firstly forte, then piano (as an echo). The "allaluia" parts are trying to follow the same harmonies and structure. I deem this piece as a minimalist-styled choral, because it's simple rhithmics, harmonies, and modesty. Recorded with Garritan Instruments' choir soundbanks.
  20. - Batter My Heart from Doctor Atomic.Right there, above here, is my favorite Adams piece simply for its emotion. You should listen to it before you even start to judge from the Name alone. John Adams is a living, breathing, successful, ridiculed American composer. His music battled serialism and promoted expression in music with the use of independent line and a minimalist approach. It's not about rules, it's about breaking them just like the other 20th century composers did to obtain an effect... Now. This is the ultimate question in music in this day and age... Where does Minimalism fit? P
