"Very effective the resource of using four pianos. You manage to fill the space with a lot of music, but well assembled and consonant. With its rhythm that proposes to be danced, it has transmitted to me a feeling of affective, sentimental and…"

"How I value a good performance by a good interpreter! How I wish I could do it and not have to go to computer productions. . . It is music very pleasant and easy to listen to and captures the listener's attention. Congratulations on getting…"

Ramon Capsada Blanch replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Piece for Orchestra. (4'30")
"Hello Dane, It's always fine to start a piece with an (open) inversion of the C# 7 chord. The truth is that this piece sounds great !! As you already have us used to with your previous works. But maybe (for my taste) this sounds too good.…"

"Well yes, music is music and this that you produce sounds very good! And also, who could play the guitar as well as you do!"

"Dan, I like that you have been interested in the theory that I worked on and presented in this chat. I think it's very good that you have delved into the subject and that you have used it in your new project. The Tonnetz and PRL…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Ramon Capsada Blanch's discussion Parsimonious Trichords
"Ramon, hi, All I can tell you is the theoretical basis which you were applying in this work helped enormously today as, having some free time, I started on a Gavotte. This system allows me easy, instant modulation to mediant and submediant. Great!"

Tony Lowther replied to Ramon Capsada Blanch's discussion Parsimonious Trichords
"A world of difference between this and my work in both musical understanding and theory - and a truly wonderful, educational listen - technically superb and alive - controlled dynamics well placed and apt. I could not even begin to write something…"

"LIz, Thank you for listening to the piece and for your positive comments. I find the reference you did to that important work for organ by Carl Nielsen very interesting, since he made a demonstration of how to develop new musical elements in…"

Liz Atems replied to Ramon Capsada Blanch's discussion Parsimonious Trichords
"Very interesting piece! One of the exercises we were given way back in composition class was to try to write something musical that totally avoids traditional tonal harmony. I thought the most interesting approach would be to try to use triads in a…"

"Timothy, You thank me for sharing this work, but it is I who have to thank you for listening to it and also commenting on it. In response to Dan I have tried to make a brief summary of what my intentions have been. Saludos"

Ramon Capsada Blanch replied to Ramon Capsada Blanch's discussion Parsimonious Trichords
"Dan, Thank you very much for listening to my piece and for reflecting on it. My intention has been to build an atonal harmony with a chromatic format but with a clearly consonant combination. I have tried to achieve all this by using the simplest…"

Ingo Lee replied to Ramon Capsada Blanch's discussion Parsimonious Trichords
"I enjoyed listening to this Ramon.  I appreciate that you have based this on an interesting theory and at some point I would like to look into this and other such approaches to composition but I'm honestly more interested in the result…"

Timothy Smith replied to Ramon Capsada Blanch's discussion Parsimonious Trichords
"I agree with Dane this would make a very nice thing to slide into a composition as a surprise. I admit to not really knowing much about this specific theory so this has been very educational for me as well!  Thanks for sharing!"

Dane Aubrun replied to Ramon Capsada Blanch's discussion Parsimonious Trichords
"Interesting to read the explanations. I seem to have been caught in tha unwittingly using the system for quick surprise modulations. C-E-G----E-G#-B and similar. An interesting concept though I listened to your work without too much attention to its…"
