Music Composers Unite!
Hey guys. I'm a new member and very excited to connect with fellow composers. It's really amazing to see how many other people there are creating awesome music. Hopefully we will all learn from each other

By the way I just made this instrumental progressing to techno. can you guys check it out and tell me what you think? I am new to composing so i want to know how I can improve it. Here is the link https://soundcloud.com/nmarnson/the-king-has-arrived
One of the questions that preoccupy my thoughts is
Why is "A" "A" and how did it come to be so-called?
The great and prolific composer, known mostly for Animal House (remember all that academic-sounding music?). A wonderful composer who could write in any style. Here's a sample from "Stripes," a Bill Murray comedy from the 80s.
What other great EB sounds are worth posting? Pile on!
I will post something I worked on a little last week. Is an attempt on a Orchestral song.
I am quite happy with it, But I reckon is many things that could be done to make it even better.
I was first and formost making the song to a friend, that needed a theme to a game he is making. So I tried to build it up slowly!
I am using Reason to create the arrangement and using orchestral soundbank. I use Record to record my voice. Hence the vocal bit.
As always I was…Continue
This is an attempt on a instrumental song.. I wanted to make it very atmospheric and relaxing. So one can have it on as background music
I did played around with different sounds. It might be to boring? Or perhaps the music sounds makes it messy.. Not sure..
Hope you like it…Continue
Pianist Anatoli Vedernikov. I happened to buy a vinyl of him playing mozart, Haydn and Schumann. Soviet musician, the record printed in the USSR in 1987 (I think?). Excellent condition, very high quality recording and a very clear, precise style, it is classical yet has some emotional touches to it, keeping a very good balance, everything Mozart needs and I admit, his sonata no. 11 did make a good impression on me (it's one of those sonatas by mozart that i actually like, lol). I wonder what…Continue

Some months ago I had gone for a walk to the junk shops downtown. Among other things, those places are pure heaven for getting vinyl records. So while browsing through, I stumble upon this 21 record colection of Beethoven's piano works (all of them), played by no other than the mighty Alfred Brendel. "How much", I ask. "1 euro each. You want them". "Damn yes I do.". The package included the record notes and the box, and 21 records in pretty much good to excellent condition. The most curious…Continue

I always wanted to try setting a chorale jazz style. Here's how it turned out.
Here's a link to a recording and score of my latest work for SATB choir and String Quartet.
Hope you enjoy!

I should have posted the three blogs below in the piano forum which I have just joined.
I have not posted anything in a year. I do have a page and have just added more pieces. I compose mainly for piano.
I hope everyone can enjoy the Spring now and perhaps compose also.
A new app for composing music on an Ipad will be available in the Fall from '"Think Music". Music can then be entered into Finale or Sibelius.

The composer lived from 1868-1933 in Salzburg. He is best known today for his comic operettas. Wikipedia has information about him.
I found the transcriptions of Schubert symphonies for piano and could not find any performances of them. I entered music from the score of the second symphony from measures 16-163 into Finale music notation program and had Finale play the score so I could listen to it.
I found his work amazing similar to Liszts's transcriptions of Beethoven…Continue

There are many virtual pianos. One site that deals with reviews and comparisons is : Virtual Piano Domain. But I do not know if it is current.
2011 seems to be the last date. But is does have in depth information
about many virtual pianos including one from Taiwan called Sound Magic.
Also Piano Penquin site on Youtube compares several virtual pianos
with a Beethoven sample.

Exciting technology is happening in the virtual and digital piano world.
Virtual and acoustic instruments will always exist side by side I think.
The virtual sounds come from the acoustic anyway and the beauty and
wonder of air vibrating against strings and tubes creates sound that is very complex.
For musicians who cannot have an acoustic piano these instruments offer a way to play and compose with the notation programs and virtual and digital instruments now…Continue

This is another attempt on a song. I added percussion for the first time. I wanted the song to be a little medieval and ethnical sort of . Not sure if I manage that.
The song is made in 3/4 signature, as I wanted to make anotehr feeling to teh song.
As nearly always, is inspired of Silmarillion/Lord of teh rings

Oh my. It's quite the beast. It trully is revolultion. In everything. At the same time it is like a textbook written for the piano-everything you can do with it is in that sonata. Every possible range of the clavier, every dynamic, is there. The music has so many layers that makes you wonder, was he perhaps planing a symphonic work?
And the spirit of the music. So forceful and vigorous, yet unstable, sometimes overjoyed and pompous, sometimes strugling, shouting in agony. Pure…Continue

"With a light and airy falsetto vocal style, Gary Tipping, is standing on the forefront of musical mastery. This independent artist from the United Kingdom is far from elementary when it comes to his music styling.
Gary is a self-taught musician that has natural talent. His guitar and keyboard…Continue

“Gary Tipping is a British singer/songwriter and an independent music artist who writes and produces his own songs and music videos. His folk/acoustic songs are as personal and intimate as a John Lennon song and sung in the easy listening style of a Paul Simon song. During 2009 he won several awards for his singing, song writing and music video production and he rightly deserves this international…Continue

“Gary Tipping’s songs have been favorably compared to the likes of John Lennon and Paul Simon in their composition, and his gentle emotional delivery is both honest and refreshing. His music video productions have won him several awards and clearly show a very talented music artist.”
