"On the other hand if you want some extreme but ancient examples you could follow here this one for three viols: Is it or is it not a passacaglia? To my ears and brain it is. Essentially just three descending notes (F, E, D) can keep the piece going…"

"Great choices John, especially the Grimes. Tillerich, Remember too that the theme can appear in any register.  The approach is sort of like variation form except there is the added layer of the theme itself. The music that covers the theme…"

"Hi Tillerich, Re: plan of attack, I would suggest you consider first what you're trying to express with the passacaglia.  It is such a repetitive form and its power lies in how the mood is built through that repetition.  IMO,…"

"Hi Tillerich..I couldnt agree more--it was an innocent question and a good one. The first answer was most likely correct: if there is no financial gain from it, the composer or estate will hardly be interested in anything. Again, "most likely…"

"Are you all serious...??! Just chill, please, it was only an innocent question. The first answer was most likely correct: if there is no financial gain from it, the composer or estate will hardly be interested in anything."

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I have attempted to write pieces of music since my late teens. I have to admit, that my grasp of theory has remained fairly rudimentary, but I believe, that I have some nice ideas, which could, with the right development, be worthwhile completing. That is why I am here: to increase my confidence, to commit myself more publicly, and to learn from peers.
I am a little nervous but excited and hope, that I can contribute something actively for others and not just remain the eternal student with a dependency on others.
