Perpetual Motion- Avant garde atonal

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jon C Sebastian on Tuesday. 3 Replies

My first attempt at atonal piano. . . apparently, my last piece wasn't actually avant garde or abstract experimental. So I studied atonal and avant garde music and had a go at a piano composition,…Continue

Spaceboy- Avant garde questionable music

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ingo Lee Dec 30, 2017. 9 Replies

No, there's no score. I could score if you really wanted. This is likely far too dissonant for most on here. Actually, maybe not. There's been way more extreme attempts than this on here that I've…Continue

Future of the Fugue

Started this discussion. Last reply by H. S. Teoh May 17, 2017. 2 Replies

My electronic acoustic futuristic avant garde hybrid form of a Fugue. Don't be quick to judge- there's somewhat something left of the classic fugue structure and certainly rhythmic and melodic…Continue

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dave Dexter May 16, 2017. 3 Replies

I ask for opinion on my latest project. No where else have I found such a wealth of knowledge and honest constructive criticism. Now please take this project with a grain of salt. Some people will…Continue

Dave Dexter replied to The Double E's discussion Perpetual Motion- Avant garde atonal
"Perhaps avant garde is one of those things that you can only be if other people decide and not if you self-label. Like saying something really smart and having to quote yourself saying it, because no-one was around to remember your genius and quote…"

The Double E replied to Keith J Hampton's discussion "Garden Seduction" - short, modern classical piece for piano.
"It sounded genuine and authentic to me. The crisp static in the background provided me with comfort, as if listening in from a somewhat distant room while this was played near by . . . I think playing on a digital setup would kill it somewhat. You…"

Perpetual Motion- Avant garde atonal

My first attempt at atonal piano. . . apparently, my last piece wasn't actually avant garde or abstract experimental. So I studied atonal and avant garde music and had a go at a piano composition, worked on it for about month. It was all learned by memory... heck no, I can't score this although I could get close.... maybe? Where would I even start... no key... no time sig...Perpetual…See More

Ingo Lee replied to The Double E's discussion Spaceboy- Avant garde questionable music
"So post-Ferneyhough modernism leads eventually to . . . . . pop!? Anyway both the music and video are very creative and fun to listen to. Yes a lot of this is familiar from a pop standpoint but it's fresh and well done and that's what…"

Bob Morabito replied to The Double E's discussion Spaceboy- Avant garde questionable music
"I enjoyed this very much,  and felt the music and video worked very well hand in hand. I didn't find it at all dissonant or avant garde, but did find it offbeat,interesting and very enjoyable:)) Great job, and thanks for sharing! Thanks…"

Gav Brown replied to The Double E's discussion Spaceboy- Avant garde questionable music
"Hi TDE, I found this humorous and enjoyable. It reminds me a bit of Kraftwerk and Klaatu and other European and/or German bands I have heard. Nicely done on the video as well! Thanks for sharing! Gav p.s. A score is always desirable and will likely…"

Dave Dexter replied to The Double E's discussion Spaceboy- Avant garde questionable music
"The familiarity was because EE had an account here a while back which either they or someone else deleted, or wiped, and things were much the same then - quite lofty claims attached to music which might be called avant-garde in its subject matter…"

Mike Hewer replied to The Double E's discussion Spaceboy- Avant garde questionable music
"surely it's too good for OO!  I actually quite like this, but EE, why on earth do you think it's dissonant? I agree with Julie, it aint, but it is quirky and distinctive and might even be saleable to media somewhere. "

Lara Poe replied to The Double E's discussion Spaceboy- Avant garde questionable music
"I will say that there are interesting moments of odd tunings at moments like 0.55, 2.45, or 3.20, and you have that vocoder-ey moment at 1.41.  But the rest of the song is pop-like and these moments are quite striking in their contrast to the…"

Julie Harris replied to The Double E's discussion Spaceboy- Avant garde questionable music
"Double E, there is no dissonance here and nothing avante-garde or extreme.  It's just ordinary pop-like music, and as Dave implied we've heard it's like many times before.  I wonder what the term "dissonance" means…"

The Double E replied to Leber's discussion Miles - Orchestral piano piece
"I didn't enjoy it, and for that I am sorry, but not sorry. I do not discriminate what my ears do and do not like. The drums sounded mundane- as if a random sample at a close BPM to your target were added to fit a potentially lacking piano…"

No, there's no score. I could score if you really wanted. This is likely far too dissonant for most on here. Actually, maybe not. There's been way more extreme attempts than this on here that I've read. Yes, it means something. What it is, that's hard to say. Not sure what is worse, the song or the video editing. It's my vision though. What do YOU think it means?…See More
