Third movement of Sierra's Return (Scherzo)

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I've been hard at work though, on my symphony. I just finished the third and fourth movements (they go together), and I'm starting to write the fifth.…Continue

Should I take this any farther?

I wrote a song called Rathole about cancer a while back and I love it so much. I want to make something more out of it, like an orchestral piece or something, and I just found an abandoned project.…Continue

Hi everyone! A few of you critiqued a post I made some time ago and I went back and rewrote a lot of it. Could I have some feedback? I'm still polishing it (transitions), but other than that, it's…Continue

Finished second movement for my symphony (Sierra's Return) would love some feedback

Hi, I just finished the second movement for the symphony I'm writing about a girl driven to insanity. It's about 5 minutes and 50 seconds long so if you took the time to listen and give me some…Continue

Third movement of Sierra's Return (Scherzo)

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I've been hard at work though, on my symphony. I just finished the third and fourth movements (they go together), and I'm starting to write the fifth. The symphony is about a girl driven to madness who comes back from the dead to kill her abusers, so I guess I'd say it's pretty lighthearted haha. Anyway, this is my first symphony, or basically my first big piece. Please let me know what you think!…See More

"Oh, my bad- I wasn't looking at it at the moment, yeah, it's in Bb natural minor. Almost all of my music is in natural minor, so it's at a point where I don't think about it much."

"The song isn't in A minor....if anything it's in Bb minor apart from the fact the 6th and 7th degrees of the scale don't alter when ascending; so it's more modal than anything (this from looking at the first dozen bars only -…"

"Well, originally the song was in A major and one day I decided I wanted to move it to A minor so I did. Haha, the key doesn't have much meaning behind it, the original song was the piece with meaning. That one was in a major key and sounded…"

"Izzy, I think from earlier conversations that I can understand your choice of key - it's dark and in keeping with the terrible subject of the BIG C...a disease which is inexorable in its progress and which, unless the sufferer is very fortunate…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Izzy Savides's discussion Should I take this any farther?
"I couldn't quite decide whether it was written in the dorian mode. With no leading note it's possible. Trouble is the harmony doesn't vary a lot, a brief excursion into Eb minor at one point but that's all so extending this piece…"

"I actually didn't pay much attention to the score, I just noticed when I did look at the beginning that it was confusing."

"It sounds very nice and I like the chord changes. However, the time signature confuses me. It sounds like it should be written in a fast 4/4 or a slow 2/4, and the phrases change in between bars when they feel like they should change in full…"

"Okay, thank you for your help. Yeah, I guess I am being a little ambitious with the sounds I want, haha. Most likely, the reason it took so long for you to load is that Noteflight scores are typically short and they lag a lot once they get bulky…"

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.
Hi! I'm a thirteen-year-old composer and I love writing music. I play the French horn in 2 bands and an orchestra, and I want to score video games and play horn professionally when I grow up. I mainly compose on Noteflight, as I don't have a better software. I prefer writing music for larger groups like concert bands and orchestras, but I also enjoy writing for string quintets. My favorite composers are Saint-Saëns, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Brahms, and Johann Strauss II
