Hello all, I am new to this forum. I listened to a few pieces posted here and enjoyed it very much! There are some very creative and talented people here for sure.
I will surely give some thoughts on one or the other piece posted. But firstly let me introduce and share a piece of myself with you.
I am an amateur and self taught musician since teenage age (I play guitar & piano) and constantly grew a desire to delve deeper into orchestral music & composition over the years. I am not good with classic music notation but I surely know a bit of theory and music concepts.
Lately I have been obsessed with Wagner’s Rheingold Prelude. These fast, calm, layered, oscillating arpeggios played by strings and winds over the base chord played by Contrabass and Horn layers... so easy yet so beautiful, refreshing. Like a rush of happinesses hormones.
I have been searching for similar pieces but rather unsuccessful. I looked up Phillip Glass for layered arpeggio work and found some nice music but it is not exactly what I am looking for. Maybe someone here knows some similar pieces or style?
However, I tried to compose in similar fashion, quoting the prelude but also add enough own ideas and variations into it plus some harmonic changes to avoid a complete drone character.
I hope you enjoy it, here is the link:
