  1. I'm composing this piece for a challenge where the challenge is to compose a romantic piece(romantic in the sense of love, not necessarily the era). What I think about when I think about romantic love is a complicated process that starts with sudden desire(pickup in momentum in the cello leading to harmonization in sixths is what I did to try to get that across), a friendly stage with exchanges, a lot like a friendship but deeper(this is what I'm at now in my piece, an exchange of 2 motives between the flute's motive from the first theme and a second motive in the cello, like 2 people exchangi
  2. So, I've made significant progress in this Gavotte over 5 days. This is how I've progressed over the past 5 days: Day 1: First Phrase melody and bass Day 2: Second Phrase melody and bass Days 3 and 4: Thinking about what to do for the B section, listening to more Baroque Suites, especially Gavottes, even playing some Gavottes on the piano Day 5: Third and Fourth Phrase melody and bass, First and Second Phrase countermelody Not all of my countermelody ideas worked out, but a few of them, like the inversion idea did work. One that didn't work out like I hoped is the susp
  3. Here's a piece I've been working on the past few days, an Adagio in E Minor for solo piano. I've reached the C minor section(that's where the momentum in the bass picks up to the point of me not marking the pedal so it doesn't get muddy). I was aiming for that "stable but not so stable" kind of feeling in the A minor section that starts at bar 40. I've thought of adding a second voice to the right hand starting in bar 17 where the E minor melody is taken up an octave, but I'm not certain if it should be above the original melody, below it, or a mixture of both, I just know that I think it need
  4. Once again I need your feedback. This is more of an epic/cinematic piece I have been working on for the past few days and would like your opinion. I am not sure I like the beginning. The pad seems to not have enough dynamic to it, too high...etc. but I'm not sure. The piano seems a bit off sync, but it seems to be in the pace of the repeating pattern I use throughout, so I'm not sure whats happening there, or if my ears are hearing something off when it isn't. Title suggestions also welcome. Thank you for your time! https://soundcloud.com/karisalclark/the-storm-chaser-wip/s-YtSyLFuFiLk
  5. So, one thing I like to do to strengthen skill sets is mess around and just create things that focus on whatever it is that I'm wanting to strengthen in my writing. This particular beginning is focused on orchestration. I've got the winds interlocked in the tutti chords (tonic: d minor). Following these, I bring celli, bass, 2nd violins, and viola in with an accompaniment pattern (doubled with bassoon). Clarinet and Oboe share a resonant countermelody as the flute and violins present the initial theme. Horns, in this example, add punctuation to the rhythmic motif found in the celli.
  6. I have been assigned to create(arrange) this piece, I am worried it is too dissonant and a bit too unfamiliar. I changed the instrument sounds because it is easy for me to work with any other sound than the default vocal samples. Any constructive feedback is welcome.
  7. Hi, I'm new. I'm currently composing a soundtrack for a video game in early development, and I've started a new composition and completed the rough draft for the climax of the song. If there are any suggestions of anything I should tweak, I'd gladly hear it. I plan to add some sort of percussion
  8. I figured that I would start this thread since I am making significant progress with my orchestration of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. You will notice that most of the notes in any staff are taken directly from the quartet score and put into suitable octaves for the instrument. With this thread, you will be able to see how I have progressed with it because I will post an MP3 and PDF once I finish a section. So far, I have the exposition of the Allegro movement orchestrated. I am working on the development section right now. I have decided on this instrumentation for it: 2 flutes 2 oboe
  9. Working on a piece for my concert band. I've had writers block for a couple of weeks now and I just wanted some thoughts/opinions/advice that could motivate/inspire me to finish it. What do you think?
  10. I have decided to make a progress post for my suite so that I can get feedback on each of the movements without having to make multiple posts. This starting post will be about the first movement of my suite. I initially planned for the melody to not be in ternary form while the harmony was in ternary form, but the melody ended up being in ternary form. I chose the key of G major because it sounds warm to me. To reinforce this, I decided on the instrumentation being string quartet + piano. I use a sequence to modulate from G major to D major as a transition into the B section. So, I guess you c
  11. This is an arrangement that I have been thinking about doing since winter of last year. No, not because the Nutcracker Suite is common as Christmas music, but rather because the Nutcracker Suite is my favorite of Tchaikovsky's 3 famous suites. Instead of starting with the March as most piano arrangements do, I decided to start with the Overture. I couldn't find many piano arrangements that included this so I decided to go from the orchestral score and arrange it myself. But I ran into a difficulty after a while. No it isn't the clarinet part and me having to transpose it. No, it is the entranc
  12. This is a WIP of the opening for a new game I am composing. The opening scene is a deputy in a blizzard/winter storm that seeks shelter in a town. The main tune is prominent with the strings, but can be heard throughout. This game takes place in the 1880s. The story is about a deputy who goes to a town that has a pandemic of mercury poison due to a mining operation higher up on the mountain and he eventually becomes insane because of the mercury that is affecting the water, fish, and even the agriculture in the area. Note: I rendered this on a laptop in a lower quality. The final
