"Bob, I think I used the word "controll" in an imprudent, unclear manner and context. I'd rather wanted to say that the digital orchestra seemed so much more tangible to me thus I can "controll" it because it is within my…"

"Timo, I'm impressed!  You stuck in and listened to the entire Messiaen piece?  All 70+ minutes of it?  Wow.  I don't think I've ever listened to the entire thing at one sitting, and I'm a true Messiaen…"

"Timo you can always create synthetic scales and build bespoke chordal formations on them the way you do with tonal scales and triads. Dissonance is often relative and one can easily temper or increase it when building chords in a synthetic scales.…"

Timo Schuemer replied to John Driscoll's discussion 2nd Interlude from My Opera
"Yes, it means I would probably want to change the trills from 0:04 to 0:20. I can’t say what I would exactly do to them but I would probably try to change the notes of the trill until I find some trill intervals or ostinato I like…"

MM Coston replied to Timo Schuemer's discussion Fantasie No. 3
"In curious what this would look like. Would the rules for resolving dissonances be slightly changed? Or could one do something like resolve all major 3rds to perfect fourths?  I already have ideas about weaving in more dissonance to music,…"

"Haha nevermind I mistook you then! I typed in „John Driscoll Composer“ in YouTube and thought you were this guy:   https://youtube.com/watch?v=1epvgB4pyaI  Sorry, lol!"

Timo Schuemer replied to MM Coston's discussion Compromised
"Hi Coston, this has a nice beauty and pace to it. I get an slightly impressionistic vibe from it and somehow it sounds very French to me, I don’t know why! I immediately saw myself sitting in some outside cafe in Paris on a sunny afternoon…"

John Driscoll replied to Timo Schuemer's discussion Fantasie No. 3
"Thanks, Timo.  I'm not sure what you mean about the electronics?  The synth stuff I have there was all done with software (I just pulled images to go with them that look like machines).  :D"

Bob Porter replied to Timo Schuemer's discussion Fantasie No. 3
"Timo, I was especially interested in your last sentence. I hear this from others who write in a DAW. They want complete control. But is music meant to be controlled?  I write in notation software. I am less concerned with a sound file than I am…"

Timo Schuemer replied to Marco Di Stefano's discussion Cuando fui combatiente
"Hello Marco, this is mesmerizing! I love the floating feeling and the way that it gets more and more intense and dramatic until it resets into quiet floating peace. Nice idea with the singing samples, I first found them distracting but they actually…"

Timo Schuemer replied to John Driscoll's discussion 2nd Interlude from My Opera
"Hi John, I really like this a lot! Nice, how you melt in some dissonances without completely loosing the grip on (consonant) harmonic progressions. If this would be my composition I would probably work on two things: 1. I‘m not sure about some…"

"Hey Bob, I'm glad you like this! I completly agree with you, being able to properly score should be added to my list of things I want to achieve. It never crossed my mind someone would want to play anything of my music, especially because I am…"

"Julie, thank you for listening and commenting, and sharing the piece from Messiaen! Let me be honest: I listened to the whole piece and I cannot say I am not liking it. But I can also not say I am liking it. The dissonances are interesting to hear…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I am an amateur musician and composer (complete autodidact). I started to get a little bit more serious about composition in 2016 and made some nice progress in my opinion.

However, I still consider myself more an admirer of composers, respectively their music, than a composer myself. I also play piano and guitar and produce(d) electronic music of various genres on a non professional level.


My favourite composers are:
Mahler
Rachmaninoff
Wagner
Bruckner
Debussy
Ravel
Berlioz
John & Ralph Vaughan Williams
Tschaikowski
Holst
Stjepan Šulek
Albéric Magnard

Agreed, I have my irons in the fire, some days music must take a back seat to art, which it seems it has done my entire life. Now that I'm retired, I can devote more time to it. Cheers to you in Germany, Timo!
