  1. Are there any techniques that are good for making a transition away from traditional notation software to more physical paper works, which is what I intended to do more of. so is there advice for being less dependent on technology and being able to write using just pen and paper. Any advice will do, thanks.
  2. Hey everyone, just thought I'd present my new album here It's a 13 track album of mostly piano solo pieces, some are accompanied by strings etc. But the focus is piano solo which is why I'm posting here. It'd mean a lot if you could give it a listen! Let me know what you think. Feathersmith. Listen to Time by Feathersmith on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.com/howard-fletcher-75757721/sets/time
  3. I’m working in an AP Music Theory book and have a question that someone else with a better knowledge of music theory will probably be able to answer. In my book when talking about many things they use the four voice types as examples, but I write for instruments and don’t know which instrument would go with which voice type. Like if I’m writing for flute, clarinet, trumpet, and alto saxophone (this is just a random example), how would I know which instrument would go with which voice type and get the melody? I thought that maybe it was the instrument’s range but I’m not sure. Thanks
  4. Hello to everyone, this is one of my latest 2020 piano compositions. It is a piano sonata in Am, the first movement. I hope you enjoy my composition and if you want to ask for anything or say your impressions just leave a comment! Thank you very much! 🙂 ^_^
  5. Hi everyone! This is going to be my first post on this site, and I would love to hear what people think of this piece. I wrote it between mid-March to mid-April, and it has formed into one of my favorite pieces. It is only one movement, which is why the official title is not going to be "Sonata." Yes, it is in sonata form, but I do not want to write any extra movements.Score.pdf On a side note, I genuinely have no idea how to engrave the score to look nicer. Any tips would be appreciated!

  10. Hey guys these are my opinions on losing the passion to make music:
  11. Hey check out this video I made on music marketing dynamics lots of interesting content:
  12. Do you like this track , and why? https://100audio.com/en/download/1149181/
  13. Good hour good folks! This is a very very crucial question for me, so thank you in advance. I went ahead and tested the interval ranking (list of intervals from most consonant to dissonant in form of ratios) by building a chord with the 3 most dissonant intervals within the ranking which are Tritone - ratio (23:16) Minor 2nd - ratio (15:16) Minor 7th - ratio (9:16) Image Description (Root to tritone - root to minor 2nd - root to minor 7th.) As seen in the image above, according to the interval ranking there is no chord more dissonant than this. Now, the testing.. In the image above, if i were to take the Minor 7th interval (A#) and reposition it to the note (D), the chord will have now become significantly more dissonant than in it's original position. This would disprove that my use of the interval ranking was correct, as the chord is now more dissonant. Maybe.. i positioned the most dissonant intervals all relative to the root as opposed to placing them relative to the note below each successive interval, so lets visualize this updated structure below. Image Description (Root to tritone - tritone to minor 2nd - minor 2nd to minor 7th.) As seen in the image above, the intervals are now structured not relative to the root but by consecutive notes. Again, the testing.. In the image above, If i again, take the minor 7th (F) and reposition it to (G#), the chord is now more dissonant than in its original "supposedly max dissonance" chord structure shown above. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Question Section" Question 1. In my second image example, did i utilize the interval ranking adequately? When stacking intervals, do you use intervals based off the note before the successor note or do you stack intervals all relative solely to the root? Question 2. In my second image example, i used the most dissonant intervals available within the interval ranking but yet when i shifted the minor 7th (F) and re-positioned it to (G#), the chord was more dissonant. So my 2nd approach to stacking intervals still doesn't prove to work effectively. What is the process behind this and how should intervals be stacked in a chord? Question 3. If we reference the second image and and focus on the F# and G notes right beside each other, they're pretty dissonant. If i push the G up or down an octave and leave the F# where it is, now they aren't as dissonant. Is the reason for this because when the two notes are beside each other in the same octave, their waves are both traveling at a similar rate but when one note is brought up an octave, because the frequency of that note has been doubled, now the two notes waves line up more as the higher octave note is now traveling twice as fast as the note an octave below? Question 4. If i stack intervals as explained in my second image example, which is by selecting my desired interval ratios relative to the note previous to it in my chord as opposed to the root, do the successive notes after my new note play a direct role "interval relationship wise" with the previous notes or does it just boil down to the note before the new note? Let me elaborate.. If i have C and E (Major 3rd) and then add a G on top of that, the C to E is a Major 3rd and the E to G is Minor 3rd. But in that chord structure the C to G could be considered a Perfect 5th and now the G is no longer a Minor 3rd interval within the chord. Which is right and which is wrong? Especially when more notes are added, the intervals can have multiple perspectives. So the questions boils down to, do we only focus intervals relative to the note before the new note added? If not, it would be a mess. Thank you very much guys!
  14. Hello musician friends ! I'm all new on that forum, and I decided to share with you this little composition of mine which is orchestral with a bit of metal. I'm not very experienced as a composer since I started composing orchestral music 1year ago, only by ear and without any musical theory. ...And I started composing on Fl Studio 5 months ago. I hope you will like it, and do not hesitate to tell me what is good and what is not in my music ! I wish you all a nice day !

  21. Hi, I'm a new member and I was hoping if someone could give me advice on how to start advancements towards learning music production and music theory on my own. I try to learn from Youtube videos, but I constantly have a hard time and I also have trouble evn finding hor having funds for equipment. Plus the little I may have, I just feel overwhelmed by it. I also love to write lyrics, but I have no clue how to even start a beat for it. Any suggestions?
  22. Hello everybody, Would it not be fantastic if Young Composers had its own special Magazine composed by the creative members of the forum? Since a few weeks I have been thinking about this idea. I already made a few magazines with the free program called Jilster (https://www.jilster.com/). The advantage of this program is that I (as a chief editor) can give specific pages to other people so that many people can work on one single magazine. The program is very ergonomic: I learned the things I needed to know in one hour of experimenting. Because the idea is still quite vage, I decided to schelude the magazine. This link leads you to the magazine in which you can see the topics I would like to include. https://jil.st/YoungComposersMagazinePreview Before I begin to write for this magazine, I would like to know if you would appreciate it. Could it be an valuable addition to the forum?I would also like to know if some of you are interested to help me. If you want to write about a topic that is not mentioned in this megazine scheme, do not be disappointed. I can give you several pages on which you can write about what you want. Furthermore, if you are interested send me a private message. I am very enthousiast, but of course we all have to be! Please be honest. Maarten *I know that not everybody has all free time to spend on writing and laying out the articles (including me), so there will not be a deadline. It is something extra and it has no priority.
