Music Composers Unite!

Hello, I have recently joined and would like to share my works here with other composers.

I plan to upload more in the future, the two scored preludes on my youtube channel were written in 2017.

Hope you enjoy, many thanks

Hi Samuel.

Listened to 4 works on your site. Very interesting stuff.. Subtle chord coloration,   impressionistic somewhat.

I felt that the preludes (2 of them) might have had a few spots to contrast the perpetual rhythm, but I may change my mind with more listenings. Quite dense writing.  Loved your 'some jazz'..  Wonderful playing! Found the fugue interesting, but there were no dynamic marks, which I felt leaves it a bit flat.  Also, would have liked more contrasts in the fugue as well.

I really enjoyed listening to your music.   

Thanks form posting.

Very interesting music hints of Rachmaninov and Debussy yet retains an original sound and style.

Hi Samuel,

Please post only a single link to a single composition per post. It's not fair to ask the members to go exploring your page, most of us work for living and have only limited time to review even a single post. It helps also if you can give a description of the (single) piece. No need to do anything different with this post, but please bear this in mind for future postings. Best to you -

Hi there yes I like to write with lots of polyphony, the performances aren't great, perhaps future performers could bring out more of the inner voices. And yes the fugue has no dynamic markings to keep the tradtion from bachs 48, and I think a better performance may bring out more contrasts. Thank you for your kind words, it really hellps encourage me!

Your chord work is outstanding.  Very complex and creative.  I'm impressed with that.  

As Gregorio suggested, more creativity with the left hand  and breaking/changing the rhythm more would take your work from very good to spectacular.  

 I see this music as an aquired taste as compared to what's presently out there for public consumption, or even among composers of different persuasions here and elsewhere.

Once a person aquires the taste the works are a very interesting listen for me.Not something I put on in the car on the drive home from work. Maybe something I would entertain when I'm feeling like listening to something "a little different". 

The motifs being both short and repetitive were somewhat offset by the interesting change of musical colors. At some point though my musical self was looking for some kind of a change. The midi programming to the beat made it sound more mechanical than a real musician playing would have sounded. I need to watch commenting much on something I don't consider myself entirely familiar with. There are quite possibly many other ways to see this and appreciate it which I have likely missed.

Am I saying I might not be qualified to comment based on limited info on the approach? Possibly. I'll just let it go at that.
