I started writing this piece a year ago, and worked on it for about four months. Then I put it to one side and started on a more melodic piece (Voile d'automne). Having completed the latter I was able to return to the former piece and complete it (as far as any piece is completed). So, here it is. I based it on a lengthy chord progression. I wanted to explore a darker soundscape than in previous compositions, use many more exotic chords (the sound of which I really appreciate), and employ several different modes. I was mildly intrigued that the locrian mode doesn't cadence, and so confronted this issue directly. One of the (no doubt many) weaknesses of the piece is that I have not found an adequate way to make greater use of a) the marimba; b) the voices. I did not want simply to include them when they were not needed just because they were there, yet I feel uncomfortable about how little contribution they make to the piece. As always, all feedback will be gratefully received.
I'd like some feedback on this minuet & trio I composed for piano. It's my first finished piece for piano (I don't play it), so I'm not sure if it's all playable and stuff. I tried to do this thing where the first theme is in A lydian and the second theme is in E mixolydian, so as to "swap key signatures", but I feel like I never really leave A. I appreciate any feedback 🙂
Guys, please, I've never found it would be so difficult... I'm looking for some choral pieces written in strict mixolydian mode, but I don't want a modern one. I want those old medieval pieces, or maybe from renaissance. It just has to be mixolydian and choral. (preferrably for not too many voices...) Thanks in advance^^
