I have been working on this idea of combining themes or fragments in my music. In this instance, I wrote two main themes, each has one distinguisable fragment. At the beginning, I mention the 2 fragments in each main themes. On certain part of the piece, the 2 fragments are combined, creating a new theme. Afterwards, I introduce another theme before going back to the combined fragments heard earlier.
I would like to know your thought regarding this approach/idea. Do you think the fragment can be identified when it's still 'attached' on the main theme? Is the combination of the 2 understandable?
Let me know what you think. Thanks before.
