  1. This here particular piece is one that has been in development for around 7 months now. Initially the goal was to have it sound solemn, however this expanded to a quick uplift from what it once was. The backstory (feel free to scroll down to skip it, all of it is underlined) was slightly odd to say the least, and at the times I was writing, I didn't even realize I was changing the mood of the song. The background started off when I first felt the inspiration to write, I was in a situation where I felt alone and depressed, there was someone I liked however I realized it was hopeless so I didn't try to talk to her or anything, so I open up Musescore and start going away into my own world. I wrote the first 8 measures, at first only consisting of clarinet 1 and 2 with a French horn plus the many empty staves. I continue to write 4 to 8 measures daily, still thinking about this one person. I'm old fashioned, long term sort of person, that is a drive away I suppose for whatever reason. One day, I make up the nerve to try and talk to her, and to my surprise it went well, at least I thought. I open up Musescore and try to write in the same way as I had previously. NOPE... so I try to create a gradual uplift, which worked out okay I think. So, now I'm looking for feedback, name suggestions, etc. What can I do to improve this song, what do you all think as of yet, seeing that its not even half complete and what would be an appropriate title for it? I'm bad with titles.
  2. Zdravas Mária(Ave Maria)

    Hi everyone! This is my first vocal/choral work to post here so far (If I don´t count a jazz song with my vocals which I´ve posted in the jazz section before). I wrote this one for strings, piano and soprano, for a talented Croatian singer Hana Huljić who also happens to be a great composer aswell. However, this is still a demo and the singer on this demo did not have any experiences with singing opera before and she is not a soprano, so it was a bit high for her, but I still love her performance very much. She´s a friend of mine and was very willing to sing the demo for Hana, I´m very thankful to her. I always loved Ave Maria songs, especially the Schubert one, and I always wanted to write one myself one day, and the day has come. Since there are so many Ave Maria already, I decided to write it for "Zdravas Mária" which is the Slovak equvivalent of the prayer. Please let me know how you like it!
  3. Old Dominion

    First post here, this is an orchestra work I did a while back as an ode to Virginia (My home state) it takes you through various regions of the state such as the Tidewater, the Appalachians, the Blue Ridge, and the Shenandoah valley. I was inspired to write this when hearing the intro for Appalachian Spring by Copland. I remember our teacher saying it was meant to capture a morning in the Appalachian Mountains (where my family is from), and thinking to myself that Copland nailed it, but I wanted a piece that would do the same for the whole of Virignia (Or at least parts of it). I sought to emulate this in the beginning of the piece. The piece concludes with my take on Oh, Shenandoah. A river that rolls through Virginia which I spent many summers on. Let me know what you think, and yes I know the score is horribly engraved.
  4. "Romance"

    "Romance" - Instrumental Music "Romance" Composer - Dmitry Romanoff, (C) 2018
  5. Hi everyone! I am new to this forum, and this is my first topic here. I "composed" this very short Intermezzo, for bigger a bigger work I am planning to write. After assigning the theme first to the strings and next to the winds, I do not know how to continue (I'd like to develop the main theme with some variations, though). I leave the score and the Midi file here. let me know what you think about it and if you've got suggestions on how to continue it, please!

  6. Here is the first scenes of my crucifixion composition. Ya'll let me know what you think please. I've tried to label each section with what part of the story it corresponds with. (I know it's pretty short but I had a time limit, and there will be narrations and skits in between each part). Also I realized that there's a part in 'Jesus in Gethsemane' in which the Flute I part cuts out for two notes, so sorry about that. The Crucifixion Score PDF.pdf
  7. Hi all, this is my first time here. Just wanted to share this and see what kinds of things you're hearing. It's very minimal and simple (but it builds!) I have little-to-no formal music theory/training, just love making sounds :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIlrHgd85Cg
  8. BATMAN!

    I made an orchestral piece in November 2017 called "A night in gotham city". I hope you like it!
  9. Hi All! I'm curious to hear others thoughts on this piece I made this past spring. This track features various hardware synths including the Moog Minitaur & the Korg EPS-1, as well as a String Section and Solo Vocalist. Thanks in advance for your insight!
  10. Here's a piece I did years ago, which I recently put onto Sibelius. It's Baroque/classical(ish) but with extreme orchestral minimalist bashes. Its very rough and def needs tweeking, but whaddya think? Hope you enjoy Mike

  12. Dawn and Sunrise

    So 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!
  13. Hello, Please let me know what you think about the piece linked below! A separate PDF is also attached, in case resolution isn't good enough for careful review. Thanks, J Shu
  14. Laoso

    I think i'm finished with this one although unsure about the ending. I wanted to write something a bit faster than I normally would. I don't have the score as Logic is terrible for that. Enjoy and comments welcome as per. Any feedback really is welcome, good or bad.
  15. Wasps

    I uncovered this piece from a while back. I'd started it with the intention of it being music for an advert but it grew (by accident, I got carried away) into something bigger. I'm still under the impression it's only really background music. Let me know what you think. This was the last version i put to MP3 so I'm going back through it now to 'clean it up'
  16. hello everyone, this is an old piece I composed months ago, when I am free recently, I adjusted its sound effect in Cubase, hope you like it, and every commentation is welcomed.
  17. Luco

    Let me know what you see this piece fitting to, a movie scene, trailer, game, whatever it may be. On a side note, if you see yourself as a gifted mastering/mixer, please get in touch with me. I would love to pick your brain for some tips and pointers. Thank you in advance.
  18. Hello everybody! I just finished my Piano Concerto No.1 ''Octaves'' in f minor. The Concerto consists of only one movement: Allegro con brio. The music is, of course, written for piano and string orchestra. The goal for me to write this piano concerto was to learn more about how to write for piano and how to write in a more classical, early romantic style. Note that I added some more contemporary elements as well. The concerto is in free Sonata Form: Exposition - Exposition repetition with piano (classical) || Development (many more modern elements) || Recapitulation without the second theme. I ommited the second theme in the recapitulation, because I felt like this theme was already 'mentioned' too frequently. Furtheremore, ending with the first theme sounds fine to me. What do you think about the music? Particularly the development? *The lay-out of the score still has to be done. Piano_Concerto_No.1_''Octaves''.mp3 Maarten
  19. Ninian's Lilt

    This is a piece written by my grandad, Paul Lawrence and orchestrated by his friend. https://youtu.be/iK1xhrvcmqw
  20. Hi all, I had this idea for piano but wound up trying to orchestrate it over the past few days. I'm open to any suggestions and comments. Also, a question: saving MIDI out of Finale has been sounding terrible lately. The instruments all sound terrible and cheap. AND as you'll year, some of them have the piano sound swapped out for their normal sound. I am at a loss for what to do. I can save it as a WAV file which works well but I can't share WAV's on this site. I did not have this problem with it before so I was wondering if anyone knew if it's some sort of glitch that can happen in the software. Whatever is causing this, it's extremely annoying and it definitely detracts from the experience of listening to it. Thanks!
  21. Of Fire an Ice

    Of Fire and Ice.mp3 A short piece that I wrote for a Roleplay I was taking part in a while back meant to capture the two personalities of a fire mage and an Ice mage as they worked and lived together. This piece starts off with only a piano introduction before giving way to the orchestra in bar 9. From there it goes through a couple theme variations before ending back with the original theme. It is approximately 2:31 long, and stays in the key of B Major. There is a tempo change in bar 15, and again back to the original tempo in measure 67. It is the shortest piece that I have completed, and will be found on the album, "Dust of the Past" when I release it as soon as I'm finished writing and mastering the final track that will be on it.
  22. Waltz in A Major

    Here's a little waltz that I wrote in 2015, but never got around to finishing until recently. I hope you like it!
  23. Hello ^^ I'm a 17 years old young composer, and I recently made this remake of two Paper Mario's music. If you don't know Paper Mario, it's an excellent game on the Nintendo 64, I suggest you to listen to his OST. So as I said, I made my own orchestration of two musics, and I'd like to know what you think about it. Here's a link to my remake: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUe5ka6raro I hope you'll like it :D
