"Here's an idea for you: during one of your cadences, sneak a subject entry into the mix.  I forget the exact terminology, I think it's called a "hidden entry" or something like that.  Of course, this only works with…"

"Cheers HST, I agree I have a lot of work to do on developing my subjects, I never really run them through exhaustive manipulations and combinations and usually peter out after a minute or so. I'm trying to work on this and hopefully each fugue…"

"Hey Tom, took a couple of listens to your new fugue today.  I liked the overall structure of a slow and solemn opening leading to a lively 2nd section.  I did find some parts in the first section a bit unconvincing, like the awkward rhythm…"

Tom Jensen replied to Marijn Hartkamp's discussion "Sequential" Fugue in B-flat major (work in progress)
"Very nice! I look forward to hearing the finished version. I assume you've studied counterpoint and harmony? you certainly handle sequences and modulation with expertise! much better than I do :)"

"I enjoyed this Tom.  I really liked that part at 1:30…. It went on for maybe 10 seconds, but was finding id really like to hear that drawn out much more.. and after that, i also felt that the sections could be lengthened  - or…"

Tom Jensen replied to Tom Jensen's discussion Fugue in B minor Tranquillo
"You did say you didn't listen to any post with 'fugue' in the title - which implies an aversion. You are a composer, and my guess is if you enjoyed writing fugues you would at least listen to fugues other people have written, so I…"

"Spot on! I wonder if I should give my next fugue an innocuous title, like "Piece in E major written in a form with 5 letters starting with F". That should get it past the prejudice. :-P"

Tom Jensen replied to Tom Jensen's discussion Fugue in B minor Tranquillo
"I don't think it's any different than using "sonata" or "passacaglia" in a title. It's rare that a composer would write a piece purely to demonstrate a form, except perhaps in their student years or the first time…"
