I've just uploaded a piece for wind quintet - "Dämmerung - Twilight - Crepúsculo", where I use rhythmic patterns, which I found by using numerical sequences based on Fibonacci. What do you think of it? Thanks in advance!

  • Sounds interesting. I guess you applied first 7 Fibonacci numbers for semitons in the main theme.
  • Hi Thomas, that's more than I'd expected. I don't want to post the score publicly at the moment, because it's surely full of mistakes. But I'll send you a link, so that you can have a look on it. What do you think about its musical qualities?
  • Hello Andrew, thanks for listening! The "Fibonacci"-theme starts at 0:48. I worked with a "doubled" Fibonacci sequence (1+1, 2+1, 3+2, 5+2...) to get a pattern for note length. Then I created a second sequence by calculating the differences of each pair of numbers of my first sequence to get the semitones for my scale. I hope I was able to explain my method... I saw you posted an atonal piece. I will have a listen tomorrow - my internet connection at home, isn't capable to stream 5MB...
  • Very enjoyable piece. I would probably think of controlling somehow the velocities as well.
  • Thank you Thomas, Andrew, Chris! That was really helpful. I started yet to work on articulation, velocity and reverb, and I'm discovering new layers and other aspects. If you like, I'll post the final version. Kind regards, Rudi
  • As promised I'm posting the reworked version of "Dämmerung". Thanks to your replies I could enhance a lot of things.
