  1. Hello, This is my first post on this website. I am a radiologist doctor in Thailand who really loves composing music. This song was originally written as slow ballad music sung in Thai language. Later I made this arranged version. I record this on Sonar. Love to hear your comment. PS. You can also check other works I compose on this soundcloud account! https://soundcloud.com/charat-chukiat/i-cant-forget-you

    What I Feel

    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.
  5. Hello! You may perhaps have seen the collaboration topic for Theme and Variations on a Dutch folk song ''Sinterklaas is jarig''. Since I don't get any variations, I have decided that the piece is finished now. I want to thank all participants for their submissions, which are all great! It was fun to have so many people submit a variation, so maybe we can do more collaboration projects on the basis of simple songs. Theme: ''Sinterklaas is jarig.'' For more info, see below. I made a mistake by confusing the song ''Sinterklaas is jarig'' with ''Oh! Kom maar eens kijken.'' The latter is incorrect. Variation I. @MusicianXX12 Varation II. @Luis Hernández Variation III. @ilv Variation IV. @MusicianXX12 Variation V. @Maarten Bauer Variation VI. @Maarten Bauer Variation VII. @DirkH Variation VIII. @Aure_liano BACKGROUND INFORMATION The theme is a Dutch / Flemish Saint Nicholas (Sinterklaas) song. ''The feast of Sinterklaas celebrates the name day of Saint Nicholas on 6 December. The feast is celebrated annually with the giving of gifts on St. Nicholas' Eve (5 December) in the northern parts of the Netherlands and on the morning of 6 December, Saint Nicholas Day, in the southern provinces of the Netherlands, as well as Belgium, Luxembourg and northern France (French Flanders, Lorraine and Artois). The tradition is also celebrated in territories of the former Dutch Empire, including Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao and Suriname.'' (Wikipedia, n.d.). To practise your Dutch, here is a special episode from 2016 when Sinterklaas arrives in Maassluis. The text in this theme (there are many variations) is the following including the translation: Sinterklaas is jarig! 'k Zet mijn schoen vast klaar. Wellicht dat hij hem vol doet met, ja wist ik het maar. Hier zet ik wat water en wat hooi voor 't paard, want dat trouwe beestje is het heus wel waard. It's Sinterklaas' birthday. I'm putting my shoe down already. I hope that he will fit it with, if I only knew... Here I put some water there some hay for the horse, because that faithful animal is really worth it. Sinterklaas is jarig 5.0.mp3 Sinterklaas is jarig 5.0.pdf Best wishes, Maarten
  6. 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!
  7. Hello everybody, It sounds very interesting to me when we have a collaboration project in the form of Theme and Variations. For the ones who don't know what this form is: you compose one or more variations on a stated theme. A clear example is Mozart's Dodici variazioni su 'Ah, vous dirai-je Maman': How does it work? You can compose as many variations on the given theme as you want. There are a few rules / points: Only write for the string quartet (1st violin, 2nd violin, viola, violoncello). Not all variations have to contain all instruments, so you can also compose a variation for string trio (violin, viola, violoncello) or a solo passage. Make sure that the theme is recognizable or at least fragments of it. Every style is accepted: contemporary, classical, Pop, Jazz, minimal etc. Variations may not be longer than 2 minutes. When you have finished a variation, please post it in this topic with the following files. This namely saves a lot time for me to edit the final version. PDF file of the score and; Midi file and; MP3 file. You can be as creative as you want! Theme ''Oh! Kom maar eens kijken!'' Oh! Kom maar eens kijken!.pdf Oh! Kom maar eens kijken!.mp3 Oh! Kom maar eens kijken!.mid If you are interested and want to compose a variation, please sign in for this project by answering yes in the poll above. Good luck! Participants: ----------------------
  8. This artist had a lot of effort creating a song to aid little children who suffer from illness and treated in a special hospital: Ron Nesher need as many views as he can to help these people, please watch the video and enjoy the song! It is in Hebrew by the way, but every profit from the views goes to aid these in need!

    Two Slovak folk songs

    Two pieces from song cycle I was assigned to write at summer semester at conservatory. Tam pod Salatinom has lyrics for a woman singer but my friend liked the piano so much that he took the liberty to change the lyrics a little bit so he could sing it at concert in our city. The second one is a short song I liked because it was fresh and funny and I learned a lot there about how not to complicate things. The main thing I am looking for in critique would be notes on form and piano stylization. For example I learned that Tam pod Salatinom has hard changes for hand and making it unnecessarily difficult to sight read it and even a little awkward to play it. This summer I am trying to work on my form and developing an idea so I can create more cohesive works. The three stanzas of Tam pod Salatinom are based on the meaning of text so each stanza has different stylization. Also I tried to avoid unison of piano with voice to some extent at least since I find it hard to be at home while doing harmonic background for voice and hearing it how it sounds together. So gotta challenge myself in that I suppose. Any other suggestions? What do you guys got to say on harmonies and the sound overall? Looking forward to reviews. EDIT: Lyrics for the songs. Tam pod Salatinom (There, below Salatin) /Salatín is a mountain in Low Tatras, Slovakia/ There, below Salatín rustles a little green mountain, my beloved told me, my beloved told me, that she does not love me so I put a new feather, so I put a new feather behind my hat and I wonder away la dee da dee, la dee da dee to far far away (into the world) In Biely Potok (White Stream/sort of a village south from the city of Ružomberok/) at Biely Potok they play a music for dancing and there in Martinček (another village near Ružomberok) and there in Martinček people celebrate (Bursujú - have fun, eat and dance mostly in a folkish tradional way) A white goose flew, a white goose flew onto the water and she (the girl) lost her freedom (she got married). Mother, do not cry, mother do not cry oh it will be soon, for at the celebration, for at the celebration a beloved one I shall find I will take her, I will take her on a white horse and I will love her la dee da dee, la dee da dee to the final days. Počkaj diouča (Wait girl) Wait girl I have something to tell you wait girl I have something to tell you Yesterday night you didn't want to open for me neither the doors nor the gate not even talking with me Wait girl for you will regret.
  11. Here is a Christmas Song I wrote for this year. I remember a time when I went to church with my grandmother. She said there would be Christmas music, but it was not what I expected. It was an organ playing something that wasn't pop music or mainstream Christmas music. It was an organ making these sweet sounds. Anyway, I take the memory to heart to create this piece. I call it "The Joy of Christmas." Kind of unoriginal, I know, but that's the only thing I could think of at the moment. Now, I did borrow some ideas that make Christmas music. Two being the b5 and the b9. Some say the D minor 7 b5 is what makes all of Christmas tunes, so I snuck some in. Other than that it's some Dominant sounding chords with a b5 added to it. I found that a Dominant chord can resolve to itself. For example, in the second measure, the Neopolitan Six Chord is sneaky in that it involves a lower neighbor tone, then the D is anticipation to the next chord. Even though it is a N6 chord, the overall effect is a Dominant 7 chord with a b5 and a b9. And by N6, it is the intended harmony even though the third is not mentioned underneath the Ab in any way. In measure 7 I had some fun with creating chromaticism by utilizing a lower neighbor tone before the dominant 7 takes place. In measure 8, I use a Augmented 6 chord as a pivot chord...sort of, I like it. In measure ten I had an opportunity to use a minor 7 chord with a b5, but I'm not sure why I didn't. It didn't sound right resolving to the next chord, so I decided to use it as a Common Chord modulation to get to F, then Bb, then Eb which is the bVI in the overall form in G major. In measure 11 I made a sneaky false entry. I would love to stump theory students with this in that they would probably call this the subject entry, and I wouldn't blame them. But all in all, I decided it's a false entry because the main entry comes in with the next two measures. Measure 14 begins the pedal allowing for some sweet dissonance. Especially in measure 16 where a b5 is used. All this is in Stretto..some layered some individual. Measure 18 is where the "Christmas Chord" happens on strong beat 3. Measure 19 is where all cogs are in motion: Slow (Augmentation), tempo, double time, and quadruple time. Hope you enjoy the listen and Happy Holidays! Cheers.
  12. Hello! it has been a while since I've posted something on this site. I want to get the ball rolling again so here is a jazz song in AABA form that I have been working on. Now, I feel as though it may be profitable for myself to post the song/arrangement in increments so that I don't rush the song as a whole and can get detailed feedback on all the content in each section (the principle of focus and fragmentation I guess :P) First of all I am going to post the introduction of the song. (Hence this post) I will provide a lead sheet of the melody/harmony for the rest of the song and a score for the current section I am writing. In other words I think I have written the melody and harmony out sufficiently I just need to arrange it with voicings and counterpoint, etc. With regards to this intro I feel as though my first 8 measures of the intro are interesting with the basic but effective counterpoint and the harmony that flows with it. I am going for a sustained intro that doesn't have support of the hypothetical rhythm section. I'm thinking of adding the rhythm section after the intro ends which I feel is typical and effective in jazz arrangements. My gut tells me that in the second half of the intro the texture spaces out more with practically no counterpoint but I feel it maintains its drive through the concerted/block harmonies. I would gladly appreciate comments on the voice-leading as I am still learning/practicing this. Feel free to prove me wrong and tell me things other than what I am thinking about the piece as I would love for this piece to grow into the next "The Shadow of Your Smile" or "Stella by Starlight", etc.
  13. A re-upload of one of my most recently completed works, a short lied with a viola substituting for a singer. Let me know what you think.

    Steingerð vængjapör

    Hi all, This is a song I wrote under extreme pressure. It was a cold, dark winter morning in the western district of Reykjavík. I woke up at 0730 and within five minutes was in the shower. This was one of those mornings where the hot water was shy to arrive, but I was in a hurry and could not waste precious minutes waiting for it, so into the cool shower I hopped. I am a seasoned cold water enthusiast so it took me but a few seconds to adapt, but when the hot water finally arrived I found myself completely seduced by it. "Bah, there's no rush", I thought, and proceeded to take a leisurely if focused shower. The clock struck 0800 as I exited the shower and upon discovering the time decided that it would not be wise to waste too much time, after all, I was to show up at 0830 at the academy for what my composition teacher called a "special assignment". In a modest hurry I ate a small breakfast and packed a few things to serve as snacks, which my teacher warned his students would be essential. It was 0815 as I left my apartment, clothed for the harsh winter in nothing but a suit, a snow jacket and a hat and gloves, but luckily I had decided to drive home the previous night rather than walk, which saved me a half hour stroll through downtown Reykjavík. It normally only takes twenty minutes to walk, but as it had snowed heavily the night before I would have had to wade knee deep in fresh snow to get to the academy, which adds an extra ten minutes to the journey at least. Unfortunately, the same problems that haunt pedestrians also haunt drivers to a much greater extent. Driving through snow is not necessarily more difficult if you have winter tires, perhaps slightly more perilous so a slower speed is advised, but getting your car stuck is a huge issue. Just my luck, I couldn't even leave my parking space. Thankfully it was easy to dislodge but it took ten minutes if you also account for removing snow off of the car itself. I didn't get stuck on the way, but I passed many cars that did, so I can only consider myself lucky. I arrived at the academy a little past 0900 and found the class in complete silence, working furiously. I greeted the class and apologized for being late, citing the unfriendly driving conditions. My teacher was sympathetic, having showed up a little late himself, but spent no time on idle chit-chat. I could tell immediately as I walked in that the special assignment he spoke vaguely of was going to be crazy. My suspicions were confirmed when he said: "On the table you will find a collection of poems. Choose one to your liking and compose a song for soprano and piano. I am expecting a singer and a pianist at noon to come and collect the pieces. They must be ready by then." I cannot accurately describe my mindset that morning, but it was very zen. Oddly, I did not suffer from any kind of doubts or writer's block or anything like that. I chose a poem, took a seat and began to think. What do I do? Instead of wallowing in inner turmoil over the viability of this or that approach, I pounced on the first idea that I had. I spent maybe an hour sketching out the general architecture and coming up with answers to some questions that would be important to the process. Then I started writing, and I wrote almost non-stop until noon (I went 15 minutes over too), working out all of the fine details that needed to be settled. At last I was free - I handed over what I had done, almost unconscious of what I had been doing the past four hours. The singer and pianist hastily rehearsed the pieces during lunch break and returned at 1300 to recite the pieces as best they could. The performance was far from perfect; most of the pieces were quite difficult and they had little time so nobody blamed them. I was conflicted about the result. On one hand I was delighted that it turned out very nearly how I had imagined it despite the inaccurate performance, but on the other hand it lacked focus in important moments. My teacher said as much, and urged me to revise it. Revise it I did, and I also ended up performing it with the same singer at the end-of-semester concert for this year. The recording you hear is live from that concert. I hope you enjoy. The moral of the story being, of course, do not spend too much time preparing to move. The only way to know if you are one step closer to checkmate or whether you committed a horrible blunder is to move the piece. Do it in an informed manner, but do not be afraid to falter, as it can only serve as a learning experience. A side note to the moral is: Sometimes you just don't have enough time to fully realize your piece. If there is a tangible deadline, i.e. somebody is literally waiting for you to give them the score, you just have to get to work and finish it in any way you can. It is much easier to revise a piece than perfect it before it is finished, and you have plenty of time after the deadline to do that. These are lessons that I now carry with me, having experienced them first-hand. P.S. Before you judge the singer too harshly, know that the hall is notorious for being very difficult to sing in as it is almost completely dead acoustically. Believe me when I say she is a fantastic singer when she is better rehearsed than she was at this concert and is in a space which is not actively sabotaging her. I was a little nervous so I managed to completely space out for the first half second or so of the piece, which is why I came in a little late - I apologize for that.

    You are my everything

    Hi everyone! This is a jazz song from my debut EP album called "You are my everything". I wrote the music and lyrics by myself and It's also me singing and playing on the recording. I think it somehow reminds me of Kissing a Fool by George Michael just a little bit. Please let me know how you like it!
  17. I'm looking for people who might want to work together on a song. I like Rock like Radiohead and I like classical music as well. I mostly am involved with most genres of music. I've been having a bad time lately thinking. So anyone who just wants another head is accepted. Looking for FL Studio workers or maybe musescore or finale. I'm also new so I don't bite if anyone's wondering. Songs that I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAhnwt-MvPU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoYocsAEkuY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofLfkfiqUZY (First song ever 3 years ago so it doesn't have any good soundfonts.)
  18. Hello, this will be my first post, so I'm not 100% sure if I am asking this in the right spot. Anyways, I have this song I've been working on for twelve hours, and I have literally no idea what genre it is. I've never tried to make my music conform to any one genre, mostly because I don't really know how to, but I am curious as to what other musicians think it might be. Here is the song: https://db.tt/zQwPDsZX (It's a Dropbox link if you don't recognize it) It's unfinished, but I feel it is complete enough to be able to get a feel for it. The reason I don't know what genre it is is because I improvise the entire thing, no true structure. I feel like a monkey with a keyboard sometimes...
  19. Hi, I need some advice on composing a new Melody. I´ve already made some orchestral songs that aren’t half bad. But now I have problems to think of a new Melody. In the moment, I can only think of similar ones to those I already made. When I think back, I can´t really remember how I got those melodies. So, I´m in a bit of a loss right now. How do you composite new songs and how do you put aside your last project? Do you meditate until you get something new or do you listen to other songs, to get some inspiration? (Isn´t that like changing an existing Song?) So, what are the pro´s ways of making something new? But this isn´t my only Problem. I said my songs weren’t half bad, but they lack emotions. I want to get my emotions into the song. But how? Every time I made a new melody, I couldn’t feel my own feelings in it. I admit, this will get me to the same question as before: So, how do you composite new melodies? I hope this isn´t asking too much. Looking forward to your answers Thank you in advance.
