  1. Hello everyone, Here is a little piece I wrote over the holidays. The theme is actually a mix of 2 themes by Rachmaninoff combined into one, from the 2nd movement of his Piano Sonata no. 2 in B-flat minor, and his Prelude in B minor. It is a short piece, only lasting 6 minutes. I might add another piece to the opus number later on, but in the mean time, it will remain as is. Here is my performance on Youtube: I hope you all enjoy. 🙂 Theo
  2. Hi guys, I'd like to share with you an interesting new music composition technique that I've been developing since 2009, called inversion synthesis. The core part of the process involves harmonic inversion (for melodies, chord sequences or both) and is a technique made famous by Rachmaninoff with his on a . This alone remains a huge untapped area of great source material, with the Rachmaninoff example being the only well known inversion.My technique expands on the basic inversion principle to allow inverted melodies from different source pieces to be combined together, even from different genres of music. It results in a very powerful method of creating new ideas. So far I've applied the technique successfully to creating modern piano music, but it should be suitable for composing music in any genre or style. I've written a full guide to the technique in four parts: The technique, part 1 (inversion) The technique, part 2 (synthesis) The technique, part 3 (retrograde inversion) The technique, part 4 (advanced inversion & composition) I welcome your comments and look forward to hearing your results using the technique! Also, to get some idea of how I've applied the technique, have a listen to the opening piece " " from my debut album released in 2009.Chris
