  1. Hello everyone. It's a rough few months for me in a lot of ways, so this is really the first piece I have put up in a while. I don't often talk in the forum, as I usually just post. Anyway, here is my first, proper symphony, my Op. 41, and it is about my stay at Dublin last spring. I loved my time there, and I plan on returning soon. It is in four, semi-programmatic movements, and the whole piece is about 40 minutes. I really wanted to share it with everyone, so let me know your thoughts and criticisms, which I always appreciate. Thanks!
  2. Hi all 🙂 I composed this second study straight in a row after the first. I'm rather more satisfied with it. Please let me know what you think ; I also share the PDF if interested. Thanks for listening 🙂
  3. Hi all 😉 I tried here to go symphonic (more used to chamber ensembles). Just let me know what you think Regards

    Symphony No. 3: Ode to College

    This piece is made up mostly of old material that I came up with 5+ years ago but never did anything with. I have worked on this since mid-April. The title... I guess I probably shouldn't have called this a symphony, but I did anyway. This is an ode to college. For the past three years, I have attended Harrisburg Area Community College, majoring in Computer Networking Technology. I have had ups and downs, including countless moments of uncertainty and procrastination. I recall thinking several times, "Should I change my major?" and "Am I wasting my time?" In fact, right up until the end, I wasn't even sure if I was going to graduate at all. But I did. And so, this piece is intended to reflect my college experience. This piece is organized in a similar way to my other two "symphonies," and has the same instruments with the addition of a drumset. This piece was created in Musescore 2 using the Compifont Soundfont and the GeneralUser Soundfont. It lasts almost a half hour. The first movement is exuberant and jazzy. The second movement is panicky, uncertain, and contemplative. The third movement is recuperative and celebratory; it is also mostly the first movement backwards.
  5. I decided to post this as incomplete, because this only the first movement of hopefully three that will make up my second symphony. If this is incorrect, please feel free to move this to the proper location. The instruments are the same as my first symphony: Vibraphone, Marimba, Crash Cymbals, Cabasa, Piano, Celesta, String Synthesizer, Jazz Guitar, and Acoustic Bass. I placed emphasis on establishing a melody and then having it reappear later. The movement lasts about 5 minutes, and was written in Musescore 2 using the Compifont soundfont. Like my first one, in the mp3, there are popping sounds that I believe are caused by an issue with Musescore and the guitars. The movement starts off slow, and then becomes more upbeat as it goes on.
  6. So I started writing a third symphony, with the same instrumentation as the previous two. I remembered that I have a lot of unused material that I wrote years ago. Some of it is probably 5 years old or older at this point. I took two things that I wrote, and put them together to create what is intended to be the intro to Movement I. The originals, "composition" and "Symphony," are included below for reference (I imported the original MIDIs, and Musescore messed up the triplets). I took them and tried to improve upon them, including taking them out of the full orchestra zone and condensing them into the chamber orchestration. I wasn't comfortable with the full orchestra back then and I certainly am not now. Overall, the only thing I can say so far about it is that it is very repetitive. I guess that's just part of my style.
  7. This is a "light" music symphony. It's inspired by the European danceable music. The Scherzo (Danza, Mov. 3) it's made in a folcklore music genre from Puerto Rico (which is where I live) Any opinion and critics are welcomed. I. Andante - Tempo di Valse II. Adagio III. Danza IV. Con brio

    Symphony No. 2

    I had more ideas, so I put them together and created a second symphony. The instruments are the same as my first symphony: Vibraphone, Marimba, Crash Cymbals, Cabasa, Piano, Celesta, String Synthesizer, Jazz Guitar, and Acoustic Bass. I placed emphasis on establishing a melody and then having it reappear later. The piece lasts about 20 minutes, double the length of my first symphony, and was written in Musescore 2 using the Compifont soundfont. I worked on it for about a week and a half. Like my first one, the entire piece is of original composition, unless I somehow copied existing melodies without realizing it. Also like my first one, in the mp3, there are popping sounds that I believe are caused by an issue with Musescore and the guitars. The first movement starts off slow, and then becomes more upbeat as it goes on. The second movement is austere and jazzy. The third movement, like my first symphony, is pretty much the first movement backwards with a few changes and additions here and there. This symphony serves as a sister to my first symphony, but it tells a different story. I feel like it also turned out sounding like the soundtrack to a video game. Indeed, there are parts inspired by the music of the Mario Golf series (especially Advance Tour), composed by Motoi Sakuraba. Other parts are made up of musical ideas that I've actually had for years. For example, the sixteenth notes in the first movement at measure 49 were inspired by a musical idea that I came up with more than ten years ago. I was at an amusement park we have here in Pennsylvania called Hersheypark, and I was in line to ride the ferris wheel. The ferris wheel machinery had this sort of hum to it that sounded to me like the notes C and G, and it stuck with me all these years later until I finally used it in a musical piece. In the end, I decided to kind of have fun with the instrumentation, and not really pay attention to whether or not it could be performed by a real orchestra.

    Symphony No. 1

    True to the title, this is the first time I have really attempted to make a symphony. I'm not sure if it really is a symphony; if it is, it's a highly unusual one, but it does have about three movements including a scherzo. The instruments are, in no particular order (I didn't think to put them in concert order): Marimba, Acoustic Bass, Piano, Jazz Guitar, Vibraphone, Celesta, Strings, Cabasa, and Crash Cymbals. The piece lasts about 9 minutes and 40 seconds, and was written in Musescore 2 using the Compifont soundfont. I worked on it on and off for the past 2 weeks. The entire piece is of original composition, unless I somehow copied existing melodies without realizing it. In the mp3, there are popping sounds that I believe are caused by an issue with Musescore and the guitars. The first movement is on the slow side, and transitions into the second movement which is the scherzo. The scherzo ends without transitioning into the third movement. The third movement is more or less the first movement, but in reverse. I didn't know how I wanted the third movement to go, but I did know I wanted to see how everything sounded in reverse. I went to a website that reverses midi files. The website kind of messed up some of the lengths of the notes, but that sounded interesting to me. I took what sounded the best, added some more things, and made the third movement. I also drew a little logo on my phone to go along with it, since I also posted the piece on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cCfkm8Jsf0
  10. Hi everyone! I'm excited to be a part of this community. This track is part of a 40 minute long symphony I have been working on for about five months. I'd appreciate any feedback or critiques Thank you thank you thank you
  11. Hello, Please let me know what you think about the piece linked below! A separate PDF is also attached, in case resolution isn't good enough for careful review. Thanks, J Shu
  12. I’m writing some music for my friends. More on that in a bit. These little nuggets will one day become my first symphony. I guess wouldn’t exactly call them sketches since the music is written beginning to end, but they feel rough because they are not yet fully orchestrated. Either way, once that final orchestration phase is complete, this work will be a substantial piece of music, with a lot of rich content for the listener to explore. For now I’ve chosen a basic instrumentation of flute, oboe, trumpet, low strings. This can give a feel of being fleshed out, but is small enough to make sketching manageable, and colorful enough to make it fun. This instrumentation also helped me get away from the violin-centric symphony model, since I haven’t included violins in my original sketches. When I sit down and orchestrate this thing for real I will add violins in at my leisure, like a painter who, with one smooth movement, adds a bit of reflected light to a child’s eye. The next step is to dive deep into the orchestration and make some hard choices. But for now, I’m savoring the completion of an crucial leg of this artistic journey. This particular piece has taken years to get to this spot, and where it will eventually lead I am not entirely sure. Sometimes it’s just important to pause and recognize a milestone. The working title is “Homies”: Joe Soeller Evan Adventure Cat Erica Hunt-Shaw I’m not totally settled on all aspects of this music, but the overall arc I love. This is music for my friends. It’s a celebration of what we’ve all accomplished together, what we’ve built, the life we’ve lived, the love we’ve felt. The music goes a lot of different places, as do long friendships. For us the highs have been high, and there really haven’t been too many lows, and even if a low came along, we all know the high was coming back soon enough. Some of this music is an intense philosophical probing, difficult questions asked, journeys of personal growth, a connectivity that grows deep like tree roots, music for my brother. Another part is a long and exotic road trip adventure. Fences climbed, open mics pioneered, tequila bottles also pioneered. This is music to play spinbat to. And yet another section is a song of love, a private song, a hidden cave. When I dive back into this music and turn these nuggets into completed symphony movements, I may end up expanding certain chunks, or slowing down the tempo for a section, or taking the music in a slightly different direction if the mood strikes me. I’m still shaping the clay a bit. But the meaning behind the music will not change. It’s that meaning that underscores every note of this music, every rise and fall. It’s that meaning that drives me to complete it. I welcome any feedback.
  13. I confess that I'm not too familiar with the works of Amy Beach, but she's apparently among the first female American composers who wrote large-scale art music. I was struck by the lush, beautiful orchestration and harmony in the beginning of this movement (the rest of the movement is a pretty standard set of variations), and I wanted to share it. What do you think of it?
  14. My first attempt at a symphonic styled composition. I am 16 in yr 11 in Australia. Please give me feedback on what I need to improve on and tips on what Symphony No.1 in D major - I. Doloroso e lento.pdfI should build to next Also cause I went from Sibelius 7.5 to Garageband there is no Timpani, so it's a Vibraphone
  15. hello everyone, this is an old piece I composed months ago, when I am free recently, I adjusted its sound effect in Cubase, hope you like it, and every commentation is welcomed.
  16. Hello Guys, I decided, I compose a symphony. This is the first movement, when will be ready the whole composition, I'm gonna make a score. Share your opinion with me! :)
  17. Hello everybody, Today I finished my fourth symphony. To be honest, I hate to write orchestral music, because it feels like I am drowing in an ocean of possibilities and material. Yet I wanted to 'practice' my orchestration skills. The form of the piece is inspired by mosaic form, because for me recognition is one of the driving factors in the music. The lay-out and final corrections still have to be done. I am sorry for the very small staves, but this is needed, otherwise not all instruments could stand on the page. ''Randstad'' is the name of the area located in the West of Holland (Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam, Utrecht). It is one of Europe's bussiest 'metropoles' (7 million) and this is where most of the economical, social and political activities take place. I don't live in the Randstad, but in the middle of the Netherlands, where actually nothing exciting happens. What I wanted to express with this symphony is the chaotic, but also rich character of the Randstad. I am actually pretty satisfied with the result. What do you think? Any feedback or comments? Maarten (The mp3 file is called ''Nederland,'' which is wrong.)
  18. This is the piece I newly composed, hope everyone like it, and @Monarcheon welcome your commentation.
  19. Some stuff i am working on for ages already... feeling like i have to still searching for an appropriate form and the tools to make those motifs breath as they deserve. Maybe i should split some motifs into seperate pieces? Thanksful for any input :)
  20. I'd greatly appreciate any feedback

    Spring is Coming

    Hello, this is my new song about Spring. I'm sorry if I'm late. :D I didn't have much time to write music these days. I hope, you'll like my new work, please write your opinion in comment! https://soundcloud.com/mardumusix/oliver-kovacs-spring-is-coming
  24. Hey guys, I did some live recordings with the budapest scoring orchestra in 2015, here's my favorite one, "Spaghetti Con Brio", enjoy! : (mix by Greg Townley) They had just around 25 minutes to record that piece but pretty much nailed it (the runs in the middle part are ridiciously hard). Here's another one, I especially enjoyed the strong brass playing: (mix by Greg again, his work was amazing on this one) And then I did another shorter one, but in a moore cartoon style direction: (mixed by John Rodd) This one is the last work I did (new to come!) and is again kinda Disney, but a bit more heroic. Actually especially the first part is inspired quite a lot from John Ottman's Astroboy (fantastic score btw, check it out if you didn't yet). If you'd like to hear more, check out my other works. http://fredericbernardmusic.com/listen/ As I was asked by a lot of people; you can download pdf scores for all compositions here: http://fredericbernardmusic.com/pdf-scorestutorials/ As an introductory offer you can download the Mr. Alice and Spaghetti Con Brio full conductor scores for free (by just clicking on the download button) you name the price for the other two scores, starting at just 1 $. Feedback would be highly appreciated! :)
  25. Hi all, Been working on this for a while as an exercise in sonata form and, specifically, development. Since it was an exercise, I kept the language very tonal so I didn't have to worry about dealing with more contemporary techniques. Would love to know what you think. Thanks!
