Music Composers Unite!

3 short pieces for piano (under 4 minutes total).  I can't quite play the first one, yet.

thanks for the feedback guys.  I was experimenting with syncopation and quantizing.  It only works on fast pieces.  

Saul, if only they could be a A Minor achievement, I would write A Major C# Minor Bagatelle.

Emily I really do not think you need any one's approval here at all !!!!!

#1 : nothing to object

#2 : the percussions sound sort of out of context to me

#3 : the one I like best, because it also has a HARMONIC rythm

I agree with Livio. The pieces work well together but the percussion doesn't seem like it should be there for some reason. I wondered if this section should be the dull lethargy too much coffee leads to eventually where the drug only restores "normality" rather than the buzz it used to so temptingly offer (this is an area a lot of composers appear to know about!!). The last movement is my preference in these pieces though I thought it might benefit from sections that moved to very foreign keys here and there.

I liked the pieces. they actually go somewhere and have a sense of archetecture and form which keep the interest up. Good work.. and by the way.. there are NO major acheivements on this website but your three pieces are among the better offerings to be found here. Congratulations.

 

I strongly disagree with this. I think in a world of a music industry completely driven by $$ (as is everything else) it is refreshing to meet a group of people that wake up and say - I am going to write some music today; very usually on this site (rather than how can I make most money) the motivation is how good a piece of composition can I do. I think this is an achievement in itself and something to be celebrated.

Thanks for your input!  They were grouped together because they were all part of the same experiment.  I have some other possible short lyric pieces I could add which a friend suggested could be "decaffeinated piano," or maybe this entire metaphor has run out of gas.

have you checked out Bartok's Microcosmos? great inspiration for cool rhythmic ideas on piano, and.... well bartok is very good at using material in an economic way. go imslp.org and check out the score! sounding good by the way :D
