Music Composers Unite!
Well hey there guys,
I'm new, and I figured that I would post some music that I have written because that's what we do here.
Unless this is some underground cult for the consumption of rare wild beats or something.
Anyway, this is the first piece that I would consider "finished", but I'm always open for critique.
I wrote this almost a year ago now, and my composition skill and methodology has improved greatly (but my samples have not), so I wouldn't say that this is my best piece. But its still one of the only I have written.
It also doesn't have percussion. This was when I was too scared to write for percussion, but I'm happy with the sound.
I find it very appealing and the critique I might have of it has already been said. All in all, a fine "first start" -- as you grow you will learn more about orchestration, varying instrumentation, ways to say the same thing differently -- etc. -- all good challenges to keep in mind. What I didn't see mentioned that I liked was the rhythmic elements. Felt a bit "irish" to me.
Delightful is a great word for this. The melody's very catchy, and the clarinet runs are great.
