This video makes some interesting points about how different musicians interpret rhythms differently. Does anyone want to comment on this, I'm interested in the explanation of the Bernstein clip…Continue
"Hi Stephen, you have a great piece here, for me certainly it is educational. I love how you handle 5/4, it sounds natural with a twist, very cool. And a beautiful variety of harmony colors to hold our weak attentions. I'd say go for the…"
"Well done Gavin, I like that you are developing your own style especially rhythmically. It's nice to hear a piece that doesn't immediately remind me of other pieces. This piece is programmatic to my ear but it could be any…"
"I like your melodies and the harmonies that you use with them are good too, you have some nice colors. This is kind a theme and variations form which is cool. I'd like to hear more rhythmic variation in the left hand part, it's…"
"It seems from what I've read here on this forum that a lot of us end up with two midi versions, one for notation purposes and one for audio purposes.
Sibelius would never crowd notes like that unless you forced it to I don't think..…"
"It's showing you how to write a short chord progression for four choir voices. There is no melody as such, only the top voice (soprano). There are strict rules for spelling the chords and for voice leading. Schoenberg guides…"
"Hi Lucas - Without listing parameters eg, are you writing baroque or rockabilly or ?, it's pretty wide open, why do you even need harmony? The melody can include enough chord tones on strong beats to spell out a specific harmony if…"
"Hi Dane - I enjoyed this, it's obvious you know about clarinets and you have exploited the capabilities of it very well to my ear; and atonality done right is good stuff.
Now about that score. First off, your notation software…"
"Hi Timothy -
I enjoyed this, it is an interesting approach to a familiar style and a great sound. Steve has made some good points about balance and I'm interested to see if you can change that. If you have made a midi recording of…"
"Very nice Dane, your sounds are working quite well and this piece with many different parts to it fits together beautifully. The mood to me is 'film noir', and it sounds like Hollywood in the '50's and '60's when…"
"Hi Stephen, I like what you have written here. It does have a flamenco/Spanish classical guitar flavor which is appealing and well written so you have achieved your goal I believe. I think piano is fine for this, there are certainly examples from…"
"Hi Matt, here is an article that CF member John Driscoll posted a while back. John did some orchestrations of Grieg piano pieces that got good reviews so he outlined his approach for us, hopefully he won't mind if I repost…"
"I don't know what exactly your needs are here Jon but harmony is kind of like algebra, it's basically the same no matter who teaches it. Ideally you'd combine it with ear training and directed listening exercises, but one of the…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
