Hymn-Etude

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kjell Prytz Mar 6. 8 Replies

Hi,in response to Gavin's delightful short Celebration piece, I was reminded of a real miniature "fanfare", that I put together more than 30 years ago (it is much more simplistic than his!).Actually,…Continue

Hello,I hope it is okay to post this here (I just accidentally found it, I am not associated with them):…Continue

The Dream Machine (Imaginary Machines) follow-up

Started this discussion. Last reply by Stephen Lines Aug 14, 2019. 8 Replies

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

"This could have fitted into the film score of La la Land (particularly at 00:35, Sebastian's Theme); I guess this was deliberate as well...?"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion "DANCING" CONTEST - WINNERS ANNOUNCED
"If it is of any use, here my notes: A little too repetitive for me after the first 30 seconds, which were “wow”. I feel that is always a bit of a risk in casting Irish tunes into a classic structure, without making them sound a bit…"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion "DANCING" CONTEST - WINNERS ANNOUNCED
"What a decisive win for Nancy Tucker, congratulations! I was amazed by the enormous diversity of pieces, from the minimalistic to the elaborate, from the traditional to the experimental, from the serious to the LOL character and from the choice of…"

Tillerich replied to Victor Eijkhout's discussion Music for Covid-19
"I, personally, like musical jokes.This piece is somewhat more a visual / self-experience joke, rather than a real musical contribution as such, I suppose. The duration is fine, just right - in the UK everyone is advised to wash hands for 20 seconds…"

Tillerich replied to Tillerich's discussion Carl Orff competition
"Hello, if you are keen to listen to a collection of international arrangements of folk- or childrens' songs, have a look here: https://www.carl-orff-competition.com/en/contest/vote Of course you could vote as well (I am somewhere in the lower…"

Tillerich replied to Jörfi Terríson's discussion Atonal piece for choir
"Hello again, thank you very much, yes, I found it on ebay for £3.50 (including postage!). It looks good at first sight: little text but loads and loads of practical examples. This is likely to be helpful. Thanks again - happy for further…"

Tillerich replied to Jörfi Terríson's discussion Atonal piece for choir
"@Dane and Jörfi (and others): your favourites (e.g. books, online etc.) for Harmony and Counterpoint, or other resources (for relative beginners) would be very welcomed here...! (please) Of course, there is plenty out there, and the appeal or…"

"People could reveal themselves (if they so wish), if they got it "right". Perhaps ask again after the results are out."

Tillerich replied to Jörfi Terríson's discussion Atonal piece for choir
"What a fascinating discussion regarding the tonal / atonal differences etc., particularly for me, in my still early stages of being an amateur - as well as a beginner!! There is the famous saying, that you "really should learn the rules, before…"

Tillerich replied to Jörfi Terríson's discussion Atonal piece for choir
"Ali, here it is: https://soundcloud.com/brazealnut Fully agree with your comment regarding the need for a meaning in the work. One could say, very simplified, that a professional is, when compared to an amateur, more often and more consistently able…"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion "DANCING" CONTEST - VOTE HERE
"I am sorry if anyone felt offended or provoked by what I said. I challenged the proposal that there is a definite rule for or against the option to vote for oneself, if one so wishes. We can agree or disagree on that. I seem to be in a minority with…"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion "DANCING" CONTEST - VOTE HERE
"I think we are all mature enough to be able to look at our own piece of work with some fresh eyes (and ears) in the context of the collection of submissions here, and then make a judgement - not just stay fully attached to our own "baby",…"

Tillerich replied to Jörfi Terríson's discussion Atonal piece for choir
"That's exactly why I said "amateur", as Jörfi clearly is not a "beginner". I, too, have heard rather awful anecdotes about Hans Zimmer and his work ethics, which appear to be very, very traditional (i.e.…"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion "DANCING" CONTEST - VOTE HERE
"Hmm, careful not to "belittle" or dismiss the effort of Gav and everybody here...  After all, it is a 'competition', and therefore has, almost by default, a certain degree of significance. You can take it with a relaxed and…"

Old fashioned Minimalism

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 am not a professional, but have attempted to write pieces of music since my late teens. Currently I am still looking for ways how to identify the most important learning needs to convert some old and new musical ideas efficiently into works that work. 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 who is mainly dependent on others.
