My first ever score upload, having just joined CF over the weekend. Here goes...
This original composition is called "Bells Fugue (in C major)", for solo piano. I should preface by mentioning that this piece is NOT intended to be a Baroque-style fugue, even though it opens with a verbatim quote of the Subject from Bach's Fugue #1 in C major from the Well-Tempered Clavier series. Aside from that Subject (first 1.5 bars and then repeated in various voices throughout), I've completely remodeled the harmony and counterpoint, and to do that I adapted a chordal technique from jazz pianist Bill Evans, in his composition "My Bells" (thus my title). Specifically, Bill will tend to move around a static chord shape diatonically beneath the melody, in this case a P4 interval in the left hand, paired with a 1st inversion major triad built a whole step above the upper bass note. This results in a more modern harmonization, and helps realize a goal of trying to bring Fugue form into the present day. This technique does, however, violate some cardinal rules of Baroque fugue construction; namely the prohibition against parallel 5ths and octaves moves. Also, as we know, Bach typically limits himself to 3 or 4 voices for the most part, whereas my texture tends to be a lot thicker - quite often up to 6 voices (which may make this a bit more physically challenging to play, but hopefully worth it).
