"A few years ago, I tried to write an atonal piece. I posted the result here. It was a failure. It was ill conceived, poorly constructed (hmmm, could be said of most of what I write), and not really atonal. But then, my heart wasn't in it.…"

"Rodney, I do that sometimes too. My appreciation of music is governed first and foremost by emotional impact followed by technical purity. Sometimes, when listening to the most uncompromising music that order gets reversed however, but at least I…"

"Mike, The common listener would be relieved once the piece was over. I was more impressed with the performance of the piano player than the composition itself with all due respect to you and the composer."

"Mike, what I did not like about the Bootlace piece, aside from the grating on my psyche, was the fact that I could not assertain any artistic purpose from the 'music' itself. The link that Rodney provided was one that I did find…"

"Fair enough Ray, I'm not trying to foist opinion on anyone here. My rant is in response to Lawrences assertion that atonality has no basis in physics. I can't do Boulez a lot of the time niether, but I will draw the line at country music.…"

Rodney Carlyle Money replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion Bach
"The piece influences my writing by reminding me that even when I use 20th century techniques such as set-theory, 12 tone, bitonality, etc., if the music has true meaning then even the common listener will get something out of the piece."

Thanks for the invite, Rodney. I was quite impressed by your Sins of the Old Testament pieces. Dance of the Golden  Calf was quite beguiling. I'm currently listening to BelgianComposer's new Double Bass Sonata (http://youtu.be/c4wIy1qyf1E). Check his Youtube channel out. I haven't run across him elsewhere, but his work is consistently first rate. Again, thanks for your work.
