  1. I hope to do something related to music in the future, but I have no idea where to start! I love music in general, and mainly listen to genres such as pop. I was hoping to try out songwriting as it seems so interesting, but like I said earlier, I don't know how to start. I tried writing lyrics, and it seems like with the proper inspiration, I can maybe work it out in that aspect. However, I need help finding a melody and instrumental...I dunno....is anyone willing to collaborate? I'd love to see how people come up with songs, and it would be a great learning experience for me. Also...any suggestions? Thanks a lot in advance!
  2. Here's another ukulele song with arrangement that I wrote. This time with strumming. Please comment on anything that stands out as too loud. Luis Hernandez commented that the tambourine and bass were too loud. I've uploaded a re-mix where I've re-adjusted those two volumes. I don't know if it helped so any comments are appreciated. I also re-worked some melodies and harmonies.
  3. Here's a piano song with arrangement. No vocal. If the ending sounds kind of like The Beatles "Hello Goodbye" that's because I absolutely had to modulate the key and it just wanted to go there... so, sue me. :) Here's the box.com link: https://app.box.com/s/b2ckd7sasb6n95hk67zt6c65l6ufngrt
  4. Here's a little ukulele song I wrote in 3/4 time. No strumming, just finger picking. I like finger picking on the uke. Actually it's a virtual instrument ukulele. As usual I put the notes one by one into the Sonar 8.5 piano roll going back and forth from my ukulele to my laptop. Then I worked out the arrangement. Here's the link at box.com: https://app.box.com/s/ru136r430ad1b0qykko5124w8n3p1fpz
  5. When listening to this think of a war movie like maybe Tom Hanks in the thick of it wearing green fatigues. I don't know why that image sticks in my head when I hear this. Anyway, I wrote it on my acoustic guitar then transferred the finger picking note by note into Sonars piano roll using an acoustic guitar sample library uuugg... then all that work got covered up as the arrangement got more complicated. Oh well. Here's the link at box.com: https://app.box.com/s/22h9nh5kqa90c3tjh5mmfhh5n69e69ws
  6. Here's a ukulele song I wrote with finger picking rather than the more common uke strumming style. What can I say... I'm a finger picker. Again, as with much of my stuff, the flute-y thing is the vocal guide. I love composing and arranging. Singing.. not so much. This is a bouncy song and I think it employs the so-called "circle of 5ths" but I'm not one hundred percent sure about that as I don't really understand music theory. Here's the box.com link: https://app.box.com/s/fe1842nwqwyygaji8bw6xv1k3lknurxo
  7. Yet another piano song with no vocal. :( Yeah I know, it sounds like early 70's. I love that period. But nothing beats 60's music! Here's the box.com link: https://app.box.com/s/gaavrwm7ckphzp5p1gvoyjqt5mbyt7pj
  8. I know, it's kind of a weird title. Most likely a reflection of my Asperger's, OCD, and depression. I'm kinda proud of this one because I wrote it completely without picking up an instrument. Just me, some virtual instruments, my Sonar 8.5 DAW, my laptop and a mouse. Here it is at box.com: https://app.box.com/s/5pohfncrhmxa732qzu1l3w6on2zxvwyr
  9. As usual with most of my stuff the flute-y thing is the vocal guide if I should ever add a vocal. This is a piano song. Nothing fancy just some chords woven together with a melody. I love changing keys and then trying to find a way back. This songs bridge went somewhere I didn't expect and after unsuccessfully trying many options to navigate back to the original key I just sort of gave up and rather than fighting with it just tied the two disjointed keys together and somehow it worked. Here's the box.com link: https://app.box.com/s/6uxxwbcp7ga1wcv2e0xdpb4lutp36dc9
  10. Here’s a song I wrote. The flute-y thing is the vocal melody guide. Don’t know how the levels sound on any other system than my pc and iPad. I post my stuff at box.com. Here’s the link: https://app.box.com/s/tgn6sksdognxsnqscvi9iagxqay6pt49
  11. Here's a piano song with arrangement. The Star Trek thing was just for fun because it fit the 4ths on the piano so I just left it in. I post my stuff at box.com. Here's the link: https://app.box.com/s/37wdu4duldseq71l32hqd9honlg7sauk
  12. Hi there, I wanted to share with you this acoustic cover I made of the song Kids aren't Allright. Please excuse if there are some mistakes with my pronunciation as english is not my native language. I hope you'll enjoy it anyway Kids aren't allright - Offspring
  13. I wanted to create a dark and romantic mood in this song. The lines are short on purpose. I wanted simplicity, going for emotion as opposed to making a statement. I look forward to your feedback.
  14. Hey everyone! This piece is something unusual to me, as I was always writing my original music, but this time I made a re-make of a 80's pop song which was a major hit in Slovak radios back then. I have been asked by the artist himself-Peter Nagy, to do a different version, something in the romantic/movie piano style of my other compositions from the album that I gifted to him, and so I gladly agreed and here's the result. You can also listen to the original 80's version by Peter Nagy here. On the top there's the original version and down below there's my version. I hope you'll like it! P.S. my version is also included on my debut piano album which you can listen to or buy here https://oliverbohovic.bandcamp.com/album/ballerina

    Hi, This is one of my compositions. Revive promo tune.mp3 It would mean a great deal to me if I could get some feedback. Feel free to share your opinions with me.
  16. Hi everyone. This is a famous chord progression used in the chorus in pop songs, in the key of C major: F - G - Em - Am - Dm - G - C :|| However, there is a variation of this chord progression. After the repeat, the bass goes as: F# - F - E - Eb - D - G - C Can anyone figure out what are these chords? I'm assuming that they are: F#dim or F#m7-5 - Fm7 - C/E - Ebdim - Dm - G - C Here is an example of the chord progression: Thank you very much!
  17. Hi, it's been a while since I posted so I thought I'd show something off while I work on a large orchestral piece I'm taking my time on. The drums, rhythm guitar, and bass, was from a free backing track I've found on Youtube; the lead guitar is what I've done (the part with the terrible quality haha) The next one is where I am working on my guitar solos. I believe I hit one wrong note outside of the key of D Major (very noticeable) And I know there are a lot of random notes, I was freestyling...didn't necessarily write it down like I did the first one.
  18. Hello, I thought I would share this song I wrote from the new musical, Jesse James: DEAD OR ALIVE. The show is based on the life of the Western outlaw Jesse James. The music has a rock/Americana style so I thought this might be the best area to post. Thank you for listening! https://soundcloud.com/emlaproductions/ride-on-from-jesse-james-dead
  19. Hi there, I wanted to share with you this french song that I wrote a few months ago and which was rematsrered by a friend of mine. To help you with the understanding, I added some subtitles that you need to start on youtube. It's a love song about a man who wants to leave for a further town called "Palaman City" asking his girl to follow him. I let you discover the song. Thank you all Here are the lyrics translated: You see it all starts and ends with music With a delicate walking You get closer and lean, magnificent With a sweet kiss everything shines In an instant I give up My skin is crawling, I'm attracted to you, magnetic You want me to follow you to Palaman city, Palaman city,Palaman city, oh That I kiss you in Palaman city, city,Palaman city,Palaman city, oh An artistic life in Palaman city,Palaman city,Palaman city, oh That I beep you in Palaman city,Palaman city,Palaman city,oh You play and attract me in an acoustic world I want to take advantage of your knowledge And your volcanic mouth Our bodies are getting closer, And melt, hypnotically Your delicate fingers come, And show me how to do You want me to follow you to Palaman city, Palaman city,Palaman city, oh That I kiss you in Palaman city, city,Palaman city,Palaman city, oh An artistic life in Palaman city,Palaman city,Palaman city, oh That I beep you in Palaman city,Palaman city,Palaman city,oh A no, you mess up and find me hysterical We will no longer be for a lifetime, You and me cheek to cheek You leave but I stay in Paris, It's so chic I told you it all starts and ends with music That I kiss you, that I kiss you, that I beep you, that I leave you, oh That I kiss you, that I kiss you, that I beep you, that I leave you, oh You want me to follow you to Palaman city, Palaman city,Palaman city, oh That I kiss you in Palaman city, city,Palaman city,Palaman city, oh An artistic life in Palaman city,Palaman city,Palaman city, oh That I beep you in Palaman city,Palaman city,Palaman city,oh
  20. Here's a piece I just finished (I hope).. Called Island Dreams, I hoped to catch the feeling of lightheartedness, and happiness. It started with more of a Reggae beat, But I modified it back to only a hint of Reggae (organ, flutes part) Island Dreams - Island Dreams Score - https://app.box.com/s/rr9sxhn4v9ccx1xhr2gkbzvnkv1g318z
  21. Here's a piece I did 3 years ago.. Exploring EZ listening, trying to sooth ravaged nervous system, which seems to be so common, as we age, and still try to take the world seriously. I built a sound palette using 'comfort food' sounds.. This way the song was already half way there. I've been interested in the psychological impact of the sound of particular instruments.. I started with the premise there were several instruments in the conversation, each with a similar attitude, but slightly different point to add (specific motifs for each).. Like an accordion, can sound corny, but it also can sound very comforting, remind you of your ethnic background (if that fits, being 1/2 Italian yes).. It will also automatically draw up feelings of nostalgia, if the right melody, and modal scales are used.. The epiano, along with its chords, draws in a relaxed atmosphere.. (some Mike McDonald, Dooby Brothers easy pieces).. I threw in some jazz electric guitar soloing, to make is sound 'sophisticated?'.. The flute of course always conjures up a certain frame of mind.. The mellow sax, furthers the relaxed state of mind.. There is a fair amount of dialog between the different instruments, almost makes it feel like a 'town meeting', between instruments, regionality of instruments home land.. The sax and jazz guitar double at the end, letting the listener know the instruments are in complete agreement in their conversation.. The mellow brass, and simple high strings, set the framework for the whole conversation. During this period (and still to the present), I most often start with a chord progression, experimenting a fair amount, with substitutions, sine waving with simple to complex chords, coming back down, Playing with pacing of chord changes, to further vary the dialog.. Then I often just 'jam' with different instrument sounds, till I get an instrument actually making some kind of statement. When I start to get a couple of musical instrument statements, I begin the process of actually having them 'dialog' with each other.. I know some here don't appreciate the large number of instruments/sounds I sometimes use.. But it seems an area of exploration, I must work my way thru.. I do truly admire those who get a point across with a minimum of instruments.. but I feel obliged to experiment in the area. As piece comes together, I sometimes have to go back and delicately alter chord progression, because of new chords implied by specific notes of a melodic motif.. So for me, the process of composing is much like having a woman's complex dress (with many different panels and colors) sitting on a dress form.. I am constantly going here, letting something out, tucking in another area.. taking one panel out, and replacing with two different colored panels, filling the same shape. Another way of looking at it, is 'creating' a cross-word puzzle'. You start with a couple of nice big complex words, then you have to fill in the rest of the puzzle with words, that will fit. I have recently been 'binge watching' video on Amazon Prime.. I recently finished two series, 'The Wire' and 'Falling Skies'.. Each one was five seasons long.. They both gave me insight into how they could continue a story line, over such a long period.. In both series, both shows, killed off some actors, introduced new ones, in each succeeding season.. A pattern I clearly see in my life at the age of 68 now.. Life is a series of chapters, (like the seasons of a TV show). Each season, or chapter in our lives, has a central focus.. Some issues get resolved, others carry on for part, some or all of our narration. Some characters, carry through several or most chapters.. In one's one life, if we are lucky we get to have a significant person, (mate, best friend) be there for the whole show.. Other people are involved for a certain amount of time.. This works perfectly with a long piece of music. I am intrigued by the possibllities of certain instruments, being particularly actors, carrying the story line forward, the plot twists and turns, to keep interest alive.. but fundamental issues, carry through the whole story. In both series, and from what I've noticed in the patterns of life, some characters, resolve their conflicts, yet others still remain almost the same, in spite of everything that has happened to them.. Some get the lesson, and adapt, others do not, and are doomed to repeat the same cycle.
  22. Here's a piece I just recently finished.. The main motif, is only 4 bars long, which got boring pretty quickly.. I split the riff up between different instruments.. also created variations of it. Then a counterpoint riff also give it further diversity..
  23. Here's a song I wrote a few years ago.. It features Wolf Johnson. He sang the Baby Back Ribs commercial, also played in a Temptations Review band for many years.. Back up singing by Jeanne Otis - worked as back up singer for Kool and The Gang for a couple of years.. Both very talented individuals
  24. Hello Guys, Today I present you a collaboration that I made with a young singer called Elyos a few months ago. It's a song that describes what in my opinion leads to happiness. The words and music are mine, the singing is his as you'll notice I Think ;-) To help you with the understanding, I added some subtitles that you need to start on youtube. Please like if you enjoyed the song :-) You can listen and follow me here : on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcZqCDfr8fUkN1UBLTqbzcA on Twitter https://twitter.com/bielkamusic on facebook : https://www.facebook.com/Bielka-Music-1368356019843598/
  25. Hi there, I wanted to share with you this other song that I wrote a few months ago. I changed some stuff recently and just reposted it on Youtube. To help you with the understanding, I added some subtitles that you need to start on youtube. It's (again) a love song about a man who wants to leave for a further town called "Palaman City" asking his girl to follow him. I let you discover the song. Thank you all
