Hello,I know it is a bit with a delay now - and perhaps almost too much to (selfishly) ask for: would anybody be kind enough to give me a little more feedback on my piece "Dream Machine" from the…Continue

Hello,I am planning to write a Passacaglia for small orchestra on an already given theme. It is meant to be relatively modern, but (mostly) tonal.So, I have got a few questions here:- What are your…Continue

Hello,I am very much an amateur, both in terms of composing and the business aspect of music.I had an idea of writing a musical piece based on a slightly obscure theme by a impressionist composer…Continue

"What a coincidence: I received a small but nice amount via PayPal today. This came from ScoreExchange, for an arrangement that I had put on the (then free) SibeliusMusic.com website many years ago and forgotten about. When I recently realised that…"

"Yes, I understand quite well where you're coming from now that you've explained what was in your mind - I'm a psychologist by profession so I would, wouldn't I! That notwithstanding I had my own ideas about what a machine might…"

"" If you need to emphasise an entry or bring a tune to the front (even in a quartet where 3 instruments are accompanying a solo) or just simply shade in nuances of sound (you speak of colour) you have to tell the players what to do. You notate…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Tillerich's discussion The Dream Machine (Imaginary Machines) follow-up
"Just as interesting, your query about dynamics as they may relate to (in particular) woodwind ensembles. Wind instruments have dynamic issues embedded in themselves so their placing in harmony/melody can be critical. For example, the oboe can play…"

Tillerich replied to Tillerich's discussion The Dream Machine (Imaginary Machines) follow-up
"Many thanks! Admittedly, I struggled with some of the harmonic changes in the beginning, as I wanted to avoid doubling up or break lines too much whilst keeping the sound as aimed for. That is clearly a skill issue to work on - I need to consider…"

"I have very little to add from Dane's feedback, except that you could certainly use a bit more counterpoint studies and you should always plaster your scores with instructions, articulations and intention."

Dane Aubrun replied to Tillerich's discussion The Dream Machine (Imaginary Machines) follow-up
"Great that you got it into the competition. I did have a few problems, the big one was administrative: neither the score nor rendering had any dynamic markings. Had they been notated in the score I’d have worked from that. So, many potential…"

Profile Information

What have you composed for? Or what medium do you work around?
Small Ensemble, Contemporary Ensembles
What is your favorite genre or style of music?
Old fashioned Minimalism

No - Not at all.
Where do you live?
York, UK
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.
