"Edgar, thank you very much for your opinions about my quartet.
My intention has been to treat the four timbres of the instruments in a serial way in the sense of not giving predominance to any of them over the others, achieving these dense…"
"I really enjoyed the solo passages in the second movement. There are a lot of colors hidden underneath the density of this music. Moments like these where one clear line is brought to the foreground provide a nice contrast with the denser passages…"
"Thank you very much for these information on the work of Brian Ferneyhough.
I also found very interesting the information you published about Lexikon-Sonate, algorithmic music generator by Karlheinz Essl.
You're very welcome Ramon..glad to have…"
"Are these along the lines of how youre using Csound?
Thank you very much for these information on the work of Brian Ferneyhough.
I also found very interesting the information you published about Lexikon-Sonate, algorithmic music…"
"The mistake is to confuse the two previous spaces and use low-power tools to solve problems of great significance, such as that of a machine to make, with total autonomy, musical creation. That is when inconsistent products are obtained: beneath an…"
"All the decisions of melodic and harmonious structures and development have been taken by me and not by any algorithm. But I have used Csound programming language to generate the dodecaphonic series, with the calculation of time and tones, apply…"
"Mike, I think your opinion very interesting.The very nature of algorithms and computers implies that the tasks they can perform most effectively are those that are resolvable through the application of precise rules in a finite number of steps.…"
"Glad to hear you retained control Ramon. Music imo is meaningless if it is reduced to something anybody decent at math can do - it needs human input in order to connect honestly and with moral integrity, especially in concert music. It is sad that a…"
I also thank you very much for your comments and opinions.
I have not really considered a possible real interpretation. My initial approach has been that of a creation using computer tools. However, I agree with you that my score is…"
Thank you very much for your opinions and ideas. For me they are very important.
I am glad that you consider that my work is original because, certainly, this has been one of my main objectives: based on personal and firsthand criteria, to…"
"Ramon, irrespective of critiquing notes, which I personally rarely do because I believe that is the composers own choice and we all have different proclivities in that regard, there is the matter of technicalities. Would you like this work to be…"
I had a hard time trying to put my thoughts into words, so I hope this somehow works--
I very much enjoyed your piece..and as posted its a very original work, and I appreciate what youve done with it.
Its known here that I really do…"
"Gregorio, thank you very much for your evaluations. For me it is very important to know the opinion of other composers.One of my objectives has been to obtain thematic homogeneity in the set of the four movements of the work. To achieve this I…"
I found the overall 'tone' and texture interesting.. But i felt i needed more contrast.. (although i do get 'sticking' w a vibe)
It seemed (my sense of it) that is was quite strict by the number.…"
Hello everyone.I am new in this prestigious forum and I am delighted to be able to participate in it. Especially since I can know the opinion of very prepared and sensitive people about my string quartet. My composition is twelve-tone inspiration, but it is not very radical either. It consists of four different parts:1.Allegro2 Moderato3 Scherzo4 Rondo It is performed by a computer program of synthesis. I'm attaching two links to YouTube:Video with music and a visual creation (made with java…See More
I was going to upload my string quartet in this forum and I have seen that the last work exhibited is also a movement of string quartet.
