"Useful indeed. This piece is part of my series - Cantata Infinita, that; once my brain says its done, I hope to turn into an Opera of Sorts. Most pieces in the Series use the same Chord Structure (Its stuck in my head and I've got to do…"

"Hi Brock, Overall I found the sound of this enjoyable. It has an up-and-down sussurating quality, like ocean waves slowly coming and going. It also had the feel to me of being something which could do well unaltered as a background for a sad scene…"

Freeform Chord Work in C minor

This isn't really anything more than a brainstorming session. I am posting it here also to get some feedback on whether this piece is enjoyable as a whole or in part. This piece was made in one go and I am looking for a second and tertiary etc. opinion on this technique. 1. If it sounds "good" 2. If it sounds realistic 3. If it seems legitimately playable by a Chamber String Orchestra 4. If it needs a Second Layer of a Double Bass or Violin Duet.-----------A Score can be provided but as this…See More

Socrates Arvanitakis replied to Brock Martin (The Driftersoul)'s discussion Dance of the Imped Cretin
"Just a few impressions Brock: I like all modes (diatonic and chromatic) that have a semitone between tonic and supertonic (that's their main characteristic if they are diatonic imo). Having said that, I expect a modal piece to… modulate,…"

"Hi Brock, sorry to say it but I found ths to be rather boring. Whatever 'mood' you may have been trying to capture, it did not 'compute' with me. I would title this 'The Dismal Soul'.  Keep writing and…"

Mike Hewer replied to Brock Martin (The Driftersoul)'s discussion For the those with a little spark in their heart.
"Socrates, You've mentioned 3 mavericks (Vivaldi, Xenakis and Messiaen) how about adding Tippett, Crumb, Holst, Gesualdo , Stockhausen etc. I suppose an alternative adjective to maverick might be genius. I agree with Socrates and a modulation…"

Socrates Arvanitakis replied to Brock Martin (The Driftersoul)'s discussion For the those with a little spark in their heart.
"Such as? I mean, Vivaldi is to me a bit of a maverick but only as a priest, not as a musician, and M. Marin (if you've seen the film "tout le matins du monde") when he compared his music to that of his teacher he called himself an…"

Mike Hewer replied to Brock Martin (The Driftersoul)'s discussion For the those with a little spark in their heart.
"It's a lonely and risky road Brock, especially when you are walking down a path made by the music only you can hear in your head. Your music is not really to my taste, but that doesn't mean to say I can't hear a voice in it (mind you,…"

"I haven't studied in a professional sense. Having been involved in Orchestra and Musical Theater in public High-school and Middle-school is the extent of my organized study. I also took Music Theory in my senior year in Highschool. I would say…"

"Hi Brock, Yep, there's a spark there alright. A question for you, are you studying music composition? If so, how far do you think you should go with it, or put another way, do you think study would rob you of a unique style or would it enhance…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
Starting at around 13 in my Middle school Orchestra (Wiley Middle of Winston - Salem NC) under Mrs. Margeret Rehder. I realized my passion for sound and dissonance. Having originally started as a writer, I saw my imagination unfolded more purely, when accompanied by certain music. Having the desire for more. I decided I'd have to create it myself. What came forth was a new passion that would overshadow the pen for the bow.
