Music Composers Unite!

Hello, I'm new here, and I wanted to post a piece I just finished. It's a piece for piano and voice based on a poem by Paul Verlaine, Chanson d'Automne. In the video, the voice is substituted with a clarinet though.

I'd be happy to have some feedback about it :)

Hi François.

You must absolutely find a singer for this.

The clarinet version is an interesting piece per se, but it's just a blueprint compared to the vocal setting you wrote for.

Thanks for your comment :) I agree with you, though it's going to be difficult for me to find someone to perform this, so I suspect it's going to remain like this for a little while.

Hire someone, it deserves it: get in touch with a teacher, ask if some pupil is interested in overdubbing his/her voice to the piano part. I also see people offer this kind of service over the internet.

This immediately reminded me of the mood most of the world is probably in right now. I didn't look at the score, but it seems to be in A and you are moving to the G instead of the Ab in the 7th giving it that melancholic feel. Makes a nice slow Jazz arrangement.

Thanks for sharing.

I am now tempted to try this, I'll see what I can do, thanks for suggesting it :)

Thanks for the comment, I was aiming for a melancholic feel so it's good to hear that :)

I have used an internet company called The Happy Choir to record vocals before and been pleased with the results

I just checked them, and they seem good. Thanks for suggesting!

A lovely song. Poignant. Yes, get it sung as soon as possible. 

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed :) I'm going to try to

Very cool piece.

But in the middle of all the adventurous harmonies you really should not have that octave parallel in measure 5. To me that really stood out as disrupting the mood.

Thanks for the feedback :) I can see your point, I'm not sure how I personally feel
