Hey so If you couldn't tell from my picture I am a guitarist and I have been recently working at the Bach violin fugue BWV 1003. Anyway I was looking through the harmony and I am fairly sure that…Continue

So I have always composed my atonal music using natural signs after having showed a sharp of flat, recently I showed someone one of these compositions and they told me that I should not use them when…Continue

"Interesting. I use the same methodology in atonal music and that using floating tonality."

"I've never heard on anyone saying don't use naturals in atonal music. On the contrary, there are composers that say put an accidental in front of every not (except those immediately repeated). You can see this in scores by Boulez and…"

Fugue with Subject in Dominant Key?

Hey so If you couldn't tell from my picture I am a guitarist and I have been recently working at the Bach violin fugue BWV 1003. Anyway I was looking through the harmony and I am fairly sure that that the opening subject is in the dominant and the answer is in the tonic. I am not very well versed in baroque music and I was wondering if there are many examples of this around, anyone know of any other pieces that open in the dominant?…See More

Mitch Newton replied to H. S. Teoh's discussion A fugue in 1 voice? Ludicrous!
"I'm just want to come back to this point because I think it's interesting. It would be really hard to write a fugue for an overtone singer because they are (at least from what I've seen) only able to sing the first few harmonics over…"

""Unequivocal ambiguity is the hallmark of flexible bias." I became . . . I don't know . . . I can't say. So I deleted my last post on the ambiguity issue. But I 'm not sure I should have done that."

"Bob Porter said, “Ondib, “That our present form of notation may mutate into something different is not the issue here.” I agree. The issue is not that it MAY mutate. The issue is that it HAS been mutating, it IS mutating now, and…"

"I agree. In addition I wonder if we might have symbols related to geography. For example a symbol that indicated that the third note following the symbol (or cymbal) is to be flatted if the performance is taking place in a geographic region that is…"

My main instrument is classical/flamenco/jazz guitar but I also play cello, sing in classical and jazz genres and play basic piano. I began composing 5 years ago and since then have received private lessons from Alex Pozniak from the Sydney Conservationism and have really enjoyed creating music especially in the form of contemporary classical but also in other styles such as jazz (both Conservative and experimental) and film/game music when contracted to do so, combining a number of different styles to create eclectic pieces to accompany whatever may be on the screen at a specific moment.
