"Very nice! I look forward to hearing the finished version. I assume you've studied counterpoint and harmony? you certainly handle sequences and modulation with expertise! much better than I do :)"

"Very good Marijn! All fugues should employ sequential techniques in my estimation (and modern day sequencers are ideal for doing the job quickly) and you did that very well and with originality. Don’t let it unfinished, just conclude with a…"

"Sequential" Fugue in B-flat major (work in progress)

Hi all,Someone on this forum recommended me to take part in the "fugue fever" on composers forum, so here goes. I started this fugue last monday. It is very fun to write and it is called a sequential fugue because it obviously contains a lot of sequential progressions.Best, Marijnhttps://soundcloud.com/user-156147665-987961675/fugue-b-flat-majorSee More
