Hi all First of all, my apologies for my limited English skills. I have for years developed a new composing method, and I got it finished a few years ago. I call it Polydiatonism. In Polydiatonism,…Continue

"Hi Fabio, Thanks for your comment and good question. When I compose I use in parallel top-down and bottom-up thecniques. When composing, I use top-down and bottom-up techniques in parallel at the same time. It compress the information. I may have…"

"Hi Saul, Thank you very much for your comment with the picture and music. They made me happy. I haven’t consciously sought inspiration from Sibelius, but you’re probably right about the effect. Sibelius is an important composer to us. As…"

"Hi Heikki. Interesting work. I'm not much into concepts and analysis. Let me say that it certainly conveys some emotional intricacy, but can't figure why polydiatonism should not include the idea of rest and differentiation in…"

"Hi, It reminds me of Sibelius' famous Lemminkäinen Suite, there are some motivic similarities and even style between these two works.  I don't know if it provided some inspiration for you after all he is your primary…"

"Thanks for the reply and analysis. I greatly appreciate your advice. You are right in your music analysis. My music is completely polyphonic and has no theory related to chords and chord progression. A long time ago, I realized that chord-based…"

"It sounds like romantic music but with some chord tones missing. Maybe that's because of your scales, but it makes an impression of fairly standard music where you forgot to put the 3rd in the chord. Another thing: I've looked at 3 scores…"

"I listened up to 4'30" and have to agree with Gav. You can put all the technical/theoretical stuff you like into the explanation of a piece but is the listener really interested in that? It sounded modern romantic but with hints of the…"

"Thanks for your reply, I appreciate it. The idea of Polydiatonism is in its structure. In Polydiatonism is used heptatonic scales as generic scales. From one generic scale is formed a scale for every melody line in the same way than church modes are…"

Gav Brown replied to Heikki Ruonaniemi's discussion Duntames
"Hi Heikki, Despite your polydiatonism, this came across to me as a traditional neo-romantic piece. I didn't hear anything in it which would keep my interest going. On the plus side, it is well put together and has an effective silky sound to…"

My music so far

Hi all First of all, my apologies for my limited English skills. I have for years developed a new composing method, and I got it finished a few years ago. I call it Polydiatonism. In Polydiatonism, by using the principles of autonomous music seek to get as close as possible to absolute music. Polydiatonism uses heptatonic scales which are formed in the same way as diatonic scales (Church Modes). The composing style is polyphony. So the melody lines are independent and there are no theory…See More
