"I agree that avoiding parallel 5ths/octaves and other such customs of common practice music often produces a more sonorous result -- this has also been my own experience.  But my point was merely that this has to be conscious choice, you have to…"

"Hi Tech,
I wanted to make it as soft as possible and as sonorous as possible. A parallel movement has a distinctive effect which jumps out if used in a soft context.  I understand that as a clearly modern style element,  a parallel movement may be…"

"What's the reason you're concerned about parallel 5ths/octaves?
From a cursory listen, you have some pretty modern-sounding chord progressions; perhaps there's no need to worry so much about avoiding parallel 5ths/octaves?"

"Hi Dane,
I listened and sightread your work five times on seperate days.  Here are my impressions and what I learned from it:
1-It is a slow piece although many fast short passages... It increases the sense of calmness.
2-There appears to be a…"

" Hi, Ali, and a Happy New Year to you!
An intriguing and enjoyable work. I was looking through the score for some kind of serial structure but didn’t find one. However, you really take advantage of the development potential of your motifs, that’s…"

"Hi Dane,
I agree with the fact that it could do better with a little more dynamic change.  Kamran İnce(my former(?) teacher) scorned me that I am always in the middle of everything and that I do not go to the extremes.  It seems he was right once…"

This one sounds fairly liturgical and supplicatory, well in keeping with the thanks of Thanksgiving. Almost renaissance except for your usual twists of harmony! but as you haven't given us the score I can't point out where it's most…"

  • Hi Ali,
    Thank you for listening to my Nocturne for piano and you kind comment. I'd be glad to send you a PDF of the score. The message feature in this forum doesn't accept PDFs. If you send me an Email message to my email account, I will attach a PDF of the score to reply to you. My email is schreinermm@gmail.com.
    All the best to you,
    --Marty
  • Hi Ali,
    I went to your Website and listened to your Algorithms. I enjoyed listening and was drawn into the broad up and down the keyboard gestures that continually shifted pattern and expanded tightly packed intervals into larger and larger ones. It was a as though the music was happening between the pitches rather than with the pitches. I see that you were working with a kind of sine wave conception. What is the algorithm?
  • "Thank you Ali Riza. I hope you can see this comment. My first reply was sent to myself...I still have to find my way here...
  • Thank you Gav but I could not figure out why I noticed your comment so late.

  • Welcome Ali!
