Music Composers Unite!

Hello!

My name is Sergey Kayber. I am happy to publish here his musical work composed by the string quartet. This is my first exeperimental to write such music.

In your review submitted three works:
1. The Parallels
The work that was written in one night. The main method - the use of parallel movement intervals, which is not very welcome in the strict letter.

2. Broken dream.
It will attempt to nekotoye elements of electronic music in the classical string kvartnet. Before listening to this song in the VSTi. Live performance is much better.

3. Light tension.
In this work it was used some elements of rock music.

For convenience, all the songs have been combined into a single playlist.


Any comments on it from the community will be very welcome! Please enjoy!

The Parallels, was a fine composition and it's not flawed in any glaring way, but it didn't really grab me. You're evidently learning to arrange the string voices and doing it well. Nice job.

Broken Dream had some intriguing use of the instruments, but again the song didn't really bring me in emotionally - the harmonies are predictable, and it doesn't take long before I was getting bored with it.

Light Tension is like the previous, yet I found it a bit more interesting than the other two. It is apparent that you're experimenting with what the strings can do together, and there are some really good rhythmic patterns in it. The melody isn't great, it often feels like it's aimless, merely stepping around on top of things instead of following an arc.

I hope my comments aren't discouraging - I do see a lot of potential in your work and I admire that you're using a variety of techniques to keep movement in the parts. If this is as you say your first string quartet, I'd say you're quite precocious and you have incredible potential as a composer.

My prescription for going ahead would be to take a listen to lots of **Schubert**. Get on Spotify, and queue up a playlist of all his work, and listen to it. But... pay no attention to what the parts are doing. Listen to the emotion, the expression, the way he expresses something meaningful with phrases. Get into the soul of it.

Get more soul into your music, and you'll draw out beauty.

I like the idea of the whole work. For myself, I think there are to many repetitions in it (I seem to hear the same line a couple of times). Of course, it is very much possible that this was your whole idea behind it. I am talking about the first violin, btw.

It sounds good, I don't have any comments on the setting whatsoever. In my opinion, it's a nice work, very good for a first stringquartet.

Keep writing!

Thank's for comment. Earlier I wrote basically the song, but I felt that my knowledge is limited and decided to obtain additional knowledge in terms of compositions and arrangements. Education is still ongoing.
To be honest I did not expect such a result by itself. I am very interested to hear their works performed by live musicians, as it is difficult to write music with no idea of ​​its live sound.

I will listen to Schubert. From classical composites me more impressed Wagner and Mozart. I hope from the works of Schubert, I'll find a missing Components, which will help bring the music to a new level.

Objective criticism is always an incentive to move forward.
