  2. This is Keshar (Keshy). He is a very big boy because he is a Maine Coon. This music tries to represent what "he" makes me feel. The work has two parts and it is an approximation to create harmonic systems from exotic scales, which are non functional as we are accostumed to with tonal music. The first part has three sections: ABA Sections A are using a Gypsy scale in C: C - D - Eb - F# - G - Ab - Bb From this scale, the following chords (built in thirds) are obtained, with variants: Cm7 - D7(b5), Ebmaj7, ¿? (F#-Ab-C), Gmin(maj7), Abmaj7, Bb7(#5) Section B (which inclu
  3. Instructor: @Monarcheon Students: max. 10 Expectations: Composers will learn about music from the contemporary/modern period, analyze it deeply, and will write music in this style. This should span over about a month and composition assignments will be used. Week 1: Bartok - form Week 2: Webern - interval set/vectors Week 3: Messiaen - rhythms/time Week 4: Cage - intro to musical philosophy AKA "real theory" Special Notes: This is our first test long-form masterclass... structured to be more like an actual class. It's a test because I don't know how many people will be intereste
  4. I feel attracted to indeterminacy in music and composing "by chance". After having studied Music of changes and other works I wanted to try by myself. I wanted to see the results leaving to chance more or less elements of the composition, and using different scales. I use a deck of cards, and dices to do it. These are pieces that one con find interesting or not, I don't think much can be said about anything (since they were randomly done). I find very interesting to see the different moods changing scales or the indeterminacy strength. oxymoron 1: dodecaphonic scale, pitches,
  5. This was the first nocturne I wrote, some tiem ago. It's in Emin, tonal but with some unusual progressions. In some parts I used an artificial scale (nor major, nor minor).
  6. Hi Bearing in mind the 12 semitones of the scale (no microtones) and excluding transpositions, the number of possible scales/modes are: 2E11 = 2048 This brings the possibility of building 2048 different harmonic systems. I don't mean using scales as improvistion tools over some chords. I mean using any scale to build chords from it (by thirds, but also by seconds, fourths, fifths, hybrids, etc...) and use them to harmonize whan we are composing. Even only ONE note may grow to a harmonic system. See Ligeti's Musica Ricercata (the first piece is built only with a note: A
  7. I have heard that the diatonic scales have their own characteristics. A minor is described as 'The sadder minor scale', and D major as 'The joyful major scale'. The distiction between major and minor scales is very clear to me, but I cannot really hear a differance between the scales with the same major or minor tonality. Does the tone a diatonic scale is centered around contribute to the feeling of the scale? My guess is that the 'feeling' of these scales comes from instruments that are suited to play that scale. IE, it is the timber of the instrument that makes a scale sound happier/sadder
