  1. Hey everyone, just thought I'd present my new album here It's a 13 track album of mostly piano solo pieces, some are accompanied by strings etc. But the focus is piano solo which is why I'm posting here. It'd mean a lot if you could give it a listen! Let me know what you think. Feathersmith. Listen to Time by Feathersmith on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.com/howard-fletcher-75757721/sets/time
  2. I wanted to put a sound to my dreams and I feel this piece best suits it!! Leave a comment and enjoy!! Sheet Music: https://flat.io/score/5ed7175b0e11096fbd93d018-lucid-dreams
  3. This particular piece is a very special piece of music to my heart because I wrote it when I lost almost all of my other compositions due to a faulty laptop I was working on. I do think, however that this incident has triggered my most creative and productive skill yet. Where some of my previous compositions were dull or clearly based off other composers, this piece is almost a funeral march for my lost works, and (I hope) expresses my anger towards the loss but also the light that has triggered my recent creative spree. I hope that you enjoy the composition, and I am desperate to get some feedback on it.
  4. I wrote this piece for the project of flutist Robin Meiksins, Where she play one piece a day for a year. I hope you enjoy it!!
  5. I am new to this forum. I have worked on and off for the last 2 months or so on this sonata. You can view my score at : https://musescore.com/user/27866262/scores/6096785 Feedback is welcome 馃檪 This is the first piano sonata I have composed and am satisfied with, after multiple attempts. I have written it in a classical/romantic period style. I hope you guys like it. I'm still not sure about whether to include the fugue in the third movement development. I like the fugue but it goes way too long and the development with it clocks around 11 minutes 馃槙. There's also meant to be way more pedal, such as in the arpeggio sections.
  6. The Bassoon has to be my favorite out of all the woodwind instruments. It doesn't have the nasal quality of the oboe, despite being a double reed. It has a more mellow tone than the oboe, but also quite a vocal tone. That is one of many similarities between the Bassoon and the Cello. The range is also similar to that of the cello, as is how the timbre changes with register. The Cello and the Bassoon both project more at the same dynamic in their tenor register than in their bass register. And like the Cello, the Bassoon gets a lot of solo writing. Though I do notice a more equal distribution of solo lines amongst woodwinds than strings of similar range and especially when compared to brass solos where most of them are either for high register horn or they are trumpet solos, definitely in the treble clef. I wrote this piece for a challenge to compose for a particular instrument. I wrote it to evoke a ghost chasing after a person and just how scary it seems to the person being chased. I don't own a bassoon myself, so I have no idea how difficult the fortissimo to pianissimo change is or how difficult the 32nd note scales are. I used the low register to evoke the ghost and I contrasted that with the tenor register evoking the person being chased and scared. To add further to that "I'm scared" feeling, I have sudden forte dynamics in the tenor register and later, sudden pianissimo dynamics in the low register. What do you think of this short piece I wrote for Solo Bassoon?
  7. Where my first sonata was based on the username of a member on this forum, my second sonata is a little more abstract. The work begins with material derived from a tone row. The opening motif, of the first movement, then transforms into a more freer atonal chromaticism. My favorite texture and passage from the first movement begins at measure 70 and lasts until measure 82 -I don't think I've written a passage like this before. The second movement starts with a light, almost dance-like atmosphere. This is my testament to chaos and resignation. The final movement continues the material from the previous two movements and brings it to a final closure. Hope you enjoy. As always, comments welcome!
  8. I was wondering if anyone can recommend some songs with violin/viola solos along with an orchestra?
  9. This is the fourth movement of 脥slensk sv铆ta (Icelandic suite) for piano solo. This movement is really a variations on a theme, the source being an Icelandic folksong, "V铆sur vatnsenda-r贸su." The piece has more of a cinematic feel to it than the other movements, and definitely requires more virtuosic abilities. There's also a certain edginess to this movement that, I think, contrasts nicely with the ebb-and-flow of the others. It was quite enjoyable to put together, so I do hope you all enjoy this, as well. Please let me know what feedback you have! Word to the listener: there are a lot of quartal harmonies, whole tones scales, and juxtaposed fifths, so be prepared for a lot of dissonance. This piece is exciting to play (and hear), but don't say you weren't warned if it gives you an earache.
  10. Here is another short piece that I wrote over the summer. It's a humoresque in ternary form. I hope you guys like it. Note: I think the audio file is missing a repeat on the da capo.
  11. Good morning (at least where I live 馃槄) 馃檪 I wanted to try to write something for cello solo, with the (I'd say rather poor) knowledge I have of the instrument. Here's the result : Have a good day 馃檪
  12. A set of two nocturnes! I am going to write a few nocturnes in minor keys as well, so don't worry if these are too happy for you. My dark and brooding side is yet to come in the form of a symphony! Enjoy this for now! (You can see how I was originally going to start the B-flat major prelude in D minor!) Please give all the criticism you can.
  13. These are a set of five preludes for the piano that I wrote, so they are relatively short. Keep in mind, this is the musescore render of it, so it's missing a lot of expression and musicality. Looking for feedback on them. Thank you!
  14. This is a piano Concertino that was premiered in December by a Chamber Orchestra composed by young artists. I couldn't record the event but I have a midi rendition. Any feedback is welcomed!!!
  15. Hey Everyone, This is my latest album, it's an 8-track piano solo album. Please let me know what you think of the pieces, scores available soon, for now please comment on what you like about the sound of the pieces. Album releases on 18th March Album on Soundcloud
  16. Hi! I'm new to this site, and I'm not here for myself. I joined this site for my friend who is an amazing pianist and insane at improvisation. He is very good, and what I upload here, with his permission, is pure improvisation. I think that if you give the music a nice amount of feedback, he will have more motivation to compose and improvise more, and I will upload more here. Please listen closely to these audio files from my friend and please give me/him some feedback on his playing. The feedback can be either good or bad. I just want him to be heard, and given feedback to. Piano improv. 2.mp3Piano improv. 3.mp3 Piano improv. 1.mp3 Thanks!!
  17. This is my first attempt to write a piece for unaccompanied violin. I'll try to make a recording in nearest future
  18. This is a piece I wrote a few months ago, I鈥檝e been having fun playing it and thought I鈥檇 share it, enjoy!
  19. This is a short piece from several years ago
  20. This is a composition from a few years ago, enjoy!
  21. Hello Everyone, I wrote a short piano piece lately. It is depicting the journey of a child when he was trapped in the maze in his dream. Again, this is a tiny piece to further experiment with the modern style and try to create different ambiances. Any comments are appreciated:D Best, HoYin
  22. This piece is from a beautiful Georgian folk love poem. During my time in Afghanistan, we did a lot of work with the Georgian military, and I was always very impressed by their culture and music, so I decided to do some research into it. Georgian music is some of the oldest polyphonic music in the world, and that ancient sound is reflected in the "chant" parts of this piece. Modern chordal movements are also included to contrast the old with the new while still maintaining continuity throughout. There is both positivity and pain in this piece which is approprtiate for both the narrator of the poem and for the country of Georgia itself. I recorded this myself (countertenor I recorded down a minor third and then transposed, low basses same thing but up a major second), so excuse the mediocre singing.

  23. Hey guys, here's a short piano piece I wrote about a month ago as an exploration of pitch class set theory. That being said, I feel that the set that I chose (0247) is a little bit too "tonal" for you to really be able to tell that it was written using pitch class sets in the first place. So I'll probably end up wanting to give it another go. But I would love to hear your thoughts on what I do have, as well as any thoughts you might have on composing with pitch class sets, and what you might have done differently in order to create something that actually "sounds" like it was written using set theory. Oh and sorry for the mediocre sound/performance quality.
  24. 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.
