Thanks Gav. I appreciate the feedback and will take you ideas with me as I compose my next project (which might be a trio). I'll pay more attention to harmony and themes with this next piece (and hopefully make something more memorable!). And do share with me your works as you post as well.

Hi Aaron,

I hear some good things in this and the other pieces you posted. I like the modern approach you have taken (I myself am a piano composer who seeks a modern style). Your approach to melody and harmony strikes me as interesting and fresh. Ultimately I found this and your other works as not that memorable, but please don't take that as entirely a negative response - I only reply on posts I like or which intrigue me, even if I don't entirely appreciate them. You got my attention, and this is why I offer an opinion - if it is helpful, I would offer to you that the key area I would like to see you develop in is harmony - which to me drives everything, and is the heart of this emotional artform. I would like to see a more emotional harmony in your works. This is my opinion only, and only offered in the positive spirit of sharing something which might be useful to a colleague (which we all are on this site). Best to you, thanks for posting, and hope to hear more from you -

Gav
