"Hey Igneous. Have you sought out a pianist yet? If not, I'd recommend at least running it by someone. If you're near a music school, you can probably find several capable students who'd be eager to at least give you feedback. I had a…"

American Anthem

"Really like the themes from 1:40 to 2:15. And 5:20 reminds me of some of the harmonies on the first Prodigy album. "

21st Century Piano Music: 3 Pieces of New York - by Aaron Goold - Performed by Ashley Hoe

"Hi Aaron, I hear some good things in this and the other pieces you posted. I like the modern approach you have taken (I myself am a piano composer who seeks a modern style). Your approach to melody and harmony strikes me as interesting and fresh.…"

"Agreed. Very difficult, but not unplayable. I too liked what you did with it. I like the combination of Romantic tonality and expression with modern colors and flare. "

"Thanks Roger. I'll think about your analysis as I write more pieces or possibly expand what I've written here. I'll be posting the other movements soon. "

roger stancill replied to Aaron Goold's discussion Latest Piano Recording
"Aaron, first impression.... very energetic but seemed to start out as if it was four measures into the piece already. You have some interesting 'runs' but the counter part, the slower, softer part, could use a bit more…"

"Thanks for the comments Dave. I'm a pianist, but not very good. Thus I had someone who was good (or great in the case of Ashley) perform the piece for me. I've barely written anything for orchestra, but so far I find writing for the piano…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I compose mostly for solo piano and electronics, but am venturing into orchestral compositions (though timidly). I'm not quite hearing the kind of music I want to hear in the classical/concert genre, so I'm excited to be exploring the possibilities. My roots are in punk and metal. I studied music at SUNY and CUNY. Favorite albums: Mellon Collie, Insomniac, Reign In Blood, What's the Story/Standing on the Shoulder, In Rainbows, Double Pladinum, No Gods No Managers. Favorite pieces: Jupiter (Holst), Verklaerte Nacht, Chopin's ballads 2 and 4, Firebird Suite, Salonen's Violin Concerto, Glass's Flow and String Quartet no 5, The Master soundtrack, Gespard de la Nuit. (Pardon my spelling errors)

G'day Aaron.

I have just joined this great forum.

Thank you for sharing your piano pieces. I won't make any observations yet, as I don't want to be presumptuous or anything like that.

Keep up the great work and keep on writing for piano. It is a great instrument of course, the king of instruments.

Best wishes to you and your family and hooroo for now.
