Yeah- 6v10. If you go back and choose the best sections and create a coherent whole out of those part, you'll have something delicious, especially with your great use of counterpoint. Thanks!- Solstice worked out well and I hope to do more of the same or better, in the near future.
Thanks for you kind words!
Yeah, it's me playing the piano, it's a digital one, and honestly I don't like how it sounds - kinda feels natural only when played fortissimo, meh.
This isn't my first piano composition, however it's the first one that's kinda serious, a bit virtuosic as well (I needed to practice it a lot to actually record properly, lol). As for big film scores etc., I'm working on something pretty epic right now - trust me, combining regular time signatures with odd ones like 5/4, 7/8, 11/8 is a whole lot of fun ^^
hey...sean is it? I gotta say you are a freakin character. hilarious haha. I'll get some stuff up on my page by the end of the semester, latest end of the year. The problem is I'm self conscious, a procrastinator, and I'm really trying to get the basics under my belt before I get ahead of my self you know? Part of the problem is that musically I have like a 1st grade reading level at the piano. I can read melody (singing) like nobody's business but intervals and more complex harmony throws me as far as actual part writing and voice leading goes. I get the theory. I'm much more of an ear trained musician at this point, but I'm trying to get past that you know? I really like spring rain by the way, and something3v9. I will be back to offer more in depth critiques if you like, and would hope for and beg the same of you when I get around to posting something haha.
Hey! I thought I'd share the first sonata I wrote with you. I listed it under Music Dissection "Old School Video Game Music." The style is definitely not classical, but the basic form and all is "correct" as far as sections and harmonic changes are concerned. It's kind of a laugh.
I like it! Reminds me of Tangerine Dream. The only advice I would give is to add a bitchin guitar solo from about 1:14-1:50. Or something like that, I wanted to hear a soaring melody line or have you build the texture up more in that spot. The development section is cool and the recap comes in seamlessly. Oh I guess one more thing, I would like to hear some more texture changes in the development. Now you just have to figure out an ending eh?

Yo yo. Strangely enough, that movement is one of my most tonal! It does resolve at the end, well, at least to my ears. That was the whole idea of "emancipating consonance" from all the dissonant material earlier on. As usual with my work, not really based on a scale, more on motives that sound scalar in spots. Sort of sonata form, the development slips out of the exposition around 1:13. The recap comes along at 2:40. God, I listen to my own music too much.
I should have qualified "no rules". Every particular style does have a set of rules, or guidelines rather. If you are looking to write a classical sonata, then yes, the relative major is a great choice for a second subject if the first is in minor, the dominant if the first theme is major. Damn, I miss my days of teaching (chuckle).
