Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

Hello everyone! I have finished the writing process for my new string quartet entitled "Look to the Sky". With this piece, I wanted to explore the use of cluster chords in music, but more specifically within Strings. Please give it a listen. I am open for any and all critique! Please note that some techniques are not fully written into the score such as the rest of the sul tasto and sul pont. As well as some shaping is still being added in. Thanks everyone!

Zachary!!!! ASU brother, ASU! Are you a composition major with Dr. Meister? I graduated in 2004ish, 2005ish and been composing ever since. Tell me more about yourself and our Alma Mater, "Go Apps!" Lol.

Awesome! App is great! Dr. Meister ended up retiring two years ago, so now we are studying under Dr. Ben Hjertmann. Im currently a sophomore, so I am extremely early on in my composing career. Were you there when Dr. Snodgrass began teaching theory?

He retired? Well, good for him. It's great to have another happy appy here and someone else from NC. I never met your teacher. Use your time wisely at ASU. Now is the time that you can get pieces performed, ask questions about certain instruments you don't know about, learn to play them, study, and have fun even if they are seeing if they can make you hate music to see if you are strong enough. Make a name for yourself, make it into the top ensembles, practice, practice, PRACTICE!!! Your career starts in the practice room. Love composing but make sure you want to major in it. Don't waste $30,0000 on a major unless you know you can make a living at it like me. Make your connections there now. Those students and friends will be professionals one day who will comission you and support your future and dreams.
