OrionLM posted a topic in Advice and TechniquesHello! I am a 17 year old music student from Belgium. I recently wrote a concerto for double bass, and it turned out really well in my opinion. Now that it's finished I actually really want to write a new piece, but I can't find any themes. I was wondering, for those who don't really those "Aha! I've got a theme!"-moments at random, how do you find/look for a new theme? Where do you get your inspiration from? And how do you know if you didn't steal it from an other work? Thanks!
Songs from my Vol.1 collection
E.Frantz posted a topic in Jazz, Band, Pop, RockThis is a collection of songs I wrote and tracked myself. Planning on eventually recording these live with my group, but thought I’d post these demo versions. Enjoy https://youtu.be/hxl4w9c0r7M

celloman99 posted a topic in Orchestral and Large EnsembleSo for the audio file I am attaching the YouTube video because I still can not get the MIDI to work right on Finale (it sounds like garbage when I try to save the MIDI file) so I am using the WAV file in the YouTube video (sounds way better). Unfortunately, the score is a little hard to see in the video so I recommend using the attached PDF for viewing and the video only for listening. Thanks for your comments!
