"Maybe it's the synth sound but something reminds me of Frank Zappa in his Synclavier days. At 3:20 definitely! But I'm kinda missing the drama. This piece feels like a bunch of the bizarre interludes that FZ used to throw in his songs.…"

"Hi Kyle, While pleasant, this strikes me as an accompaniment, rather than a full piece. It strikes me as needing melody. As it progressed along, this feeling grew to the point where my interest waned. Also, it seems overall to fall in a narrow range…"

Sonata 2020

This is an 8 1/2 minute piece about how turbulent this year has been. It is scored for a chamber ensemble of Vibraphone, Marimba, Drumset, Piano, String Synthesizer, Celesta, Jazz Guitar, and Acoustic Bass. It consists of an ABCBA format, where the slow A sections represent homeostasis, the jazzy B sections represent celebration, and the abstract C section represents chaos and frustration. It was produced using Musescore 3 and the Compifont Soundfont.See More

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 new to the forums. I live in Pennsylvania and I'm currently in my early 20s. In terms of creating music, I am not a serious or competent composer by any means, but sometimes I'll think of a melody or something and try to put it into MuseScore. I'm also not very well versed in music theory, and therefore I don't really know what I'm doing. But, I throw some things together and things start to happen, and it sounds alright to me. I'm proud of what I've made, even if it's no Beethoven.

I'm currently attempting to finish up community college, majoring in Computer Networking Technology. I have not taken any college classes related to music as of yet.

However, in high school, I was in Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, and Marching Band. In Concert Band/Wind Ensemble, I was a percussionist, and in Marching Band I was in the pit. Because of this, I tend to favor using instruments such as marimba and vibraphone in my compositions, as opposed to wind or brass instruments that I really know nothing about.

My favorite composer is Aaron Copland. I also love listening to 80's and 90's music.
