Yeah- 6v10. If you go back and choose the best sections and create a coherent whole out of those part, you'll have something delicious, especially with your great use of counterpoint. Thanks!- Solstice worked out well and I hope to do more of the same or better, in the near future.

"Try this; Pick 4 chords. Maybe C,Am,F,G,C. Write them out in whole notes in four parts on staff paper. Or notation software. Change the top line to half notes and form sort of a melody. Do the same with the bass, using passing tones. Passing…"

"By rhythmic development I mean that you can have rhythmic motifs just as you can have melodic motifs. If your goal is to write a tonal piece that takes us on a satisfactory journey through the circle of fifths, I'm not sure you have…"

"Maybe a score and/or an mp3 would help us. As you know, there are all types of development techniques. Rhythmic, melodic, texture, and such."

David Jacques replied to SEDstar's discussion John Stump's.... feath waltz !!
"I actually rather like it... I think it could be orchestrated and tamed down a bit and make a relatively entertaining piece.  Perhaps even break it into smaller parts and have a piano ensemble play it.  It'd be tough, but probably…"

"Beethoven can be a god just like Stravinsky, they were just in different ways, with different tools, for different socio-economic times. Personally I take Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Schoenberg, Khachaturian (a distant relative of mine!),…"

Tyler Hughes replied to SEDstar's discussion New Project...
"its good, and obviously still in progress. What I think you should focus on is inner parts now, its very hallow. right now need some more "meat" in the middle. Of course the transitions need work but you will get to that soon. good job…"

Tyler Hughes replied to SEDstar's discussion dual tonal?
"These composers and all other composers from back then were able write the music they did with such complexity mainly due to their knowledge of the instruments, functional harmony, and their ability as musicians themselves. Most of the composers…"
