Timeless

Started this discussion. Last reply by Timothy Smith Dec 5. 1 Reply

A bit of an experiment for me. Timeless; there is no time signature. Just sounds, emotions, melodies, and bits and pieces sprinkled. Be brutally honest- this is not my normal forte. I just wanted to…Continue

Mosaics- piano piece

Started this discussion. Last reply by Timo Schuemer Oct 28. 2 Replies

Finally finished something! It's been awhile. This is a solo piano piece, my personal favorite of things to write. This is a little bit of an experiment with perpetuum mobile, as the rhythm literally…Continue

Hey everyone- it's been a little while. I had a few days off, why not write some music? I think the inspiration behind this piece for me was sitting outside on a very quiet almost-summer evening,…Continue

Flying Kites - quick piano impromptu

Started this discussion. Last reply by Gabriel Kovalov Feb 1. 7 Replies

I actually wrote this a good while ago, and have kind of re-birthed it. The rhythms were a bit complicated for me then and I came across this piece in an old music notebook of mine, hand written. It…Continue

"I just listened to this. You've captured the feel of timess very well I think. Out of curiosity. What's you normal forte?  I like those ringing pads, almost cavernous in a good way."

Timo Schuemer replied to David Lilly's discussion Mosaics- piano piece
"Hello David, I found this really uplifting and pure. In the beginning I got a slightly impressionistic vibe but it quickly went down a beautiful minimalistic road. Very enjoyable and also moving at some moments, well done! Thank you for sharing."

"Hi David, I like this! Happy and singing, with a pop-influenced sound, Your performance also sounded good to me, no suggestions there, The score uses a non-standard approach to the treble line, which I think will throw off performers and red-flag…"

Mosaics- piano piece

Finally finished something! It's been awhile. This is a solo piano piece, my personal favorite of things to write. This is a little bit of an experiment with perpetuum mobile, as the rhythm literally doesn't change in the right hand until the very end. The goal was to keep it fresh and moving despite this, through dynamic changes, modulation, and development of the theme. This is authentically me playing this piece, albeit yes with a sample piano-however no editing trickery or midi used. Hence…See More

Lawrence Aurich replied to David Lilly's discussion Crescent Moon Nocturne (Piano)
"Very nice, soft and dreamy.  You did a lot of variation on the left-hand motif.  Why the key of Gb?  I would be tempted to use a recurring theme in the right hand, though I don't know if it would be any improvement. …"

"Hi David, Overall, I think the piece matches the mood you were seeking, so I think you achieved your goal there. There is a calmness and serenity that I hear which seems pleasant to meI find that with a short piece, a single mood is enough to carry…"

Crescent Moon Nocturne (Piano)

Hey everyone- it's been a little while. I had a few days off, why not write some music? I think the inspiration behind this piece for me was sitting outside on a very quiet almost-summer evening, doing absolutely nothing but thinking. This is my musical interpretation of that kind of moment. As always, curious for thoughts on what's good, bad, or anything in general - and if the notation seems accurate. …See More

Mike Hewer replied to David Lilly's discussion Flying Kites - quick piano impromptu
"Hi David, No, not the rhythm, I think you are playing the rh at b22 cf, an octave lower in places, that's all. This is definitely the sort of music that might sell well, have you thought about adding a few more movements. As you already have…"

David Lilly replied to John Driscoll's discussion The Art of Reverb
""Do you apply the same reverb across all your music? Across all your orchestral music? If not, what justifies your choice?" Absolutely not- you should look at your reverb choices to reflect the type of room, or if you're going beyond…"

David Lilly replied to David Lilly's discussion Flying Kites - quick piano impromptu
"Thanks for listening Mike!  Could you explain a little more the disparity  you're referring to? In my world, I feel I am playing what is written at bar 22. I had a little trouble notating the rhythm of this section so I…"

Mike Hewer replied to David Lilly's discussion Flying Kites - quick piano impromptu
"Hi David, Nice to see you back here... I agree, a great little piece, but why the disparity between the score and the recording? The music from b22 cf would sound great as written... Just one other thing, at b57, the b naturals should really be c…"
