  • Introduction and need for the study ---

    Thats rather "witty", yes. I noticced in your desription you mention "witty".

    Particularly when it says if your about to commit suicide from hearing this, please turn it off and consult a physician...LMAO... Your prolly "amenable" to my constant idea to do a project JUST for humor... kind of a super high brow "humorous classical piece"
  • Hello Tom, thanks for posting the first movement! What are your objections? Just details or fundamental things?
  • well... glad u liked it. I have absolutely NO idea what a tangerine dream is, LMAO. Are you 100% certain about a "bitchin guitar solo" from 1:15 to 1:50 ?? ha ha... i thought this was a classical piece, lol. (note: I did notice in that section, I DO have a bass heavy mix, and was light on the upper freqs... i was thinking higher pitched string-y classical instruments?)

    the guy wants "more textures" in the development area. LMAO, you did hear the last sonata attempt I made? I'm kinda already eating an apple and shitting a fruit salad, LMAO... but I can dig that, just if i can pull that off. I'll work on that...... and work on an ending... thanks for the listen...
  • eh, if you get BORED and wanna waste 6:05 of yer life... I got a rough sketch for my next pitiful sonata attempt, lol. Its on my player on my page. I havent done your "interrupt" - sideline - resume thing yet, though... around 4 or 4:30 is the part I like i was kinda happy with it, i think... had a tiny bit of thunder I'm always trying to bring in... PS - I end off of the thunder ppart with a abrupt drop-out to the B part voiced in parallel home key of c... thats not right, just wanted to hear it, lol... other than that last part, its a rough exposition/development idea... but unfinished... if you get bored enough to try it on my oage-player, its the one called 'SOMETHING3V9'

    ps - how do i tak OFF a song on that same player? liek when I wanna update this sonata attempt with the new version?
  • You are a good listener, or a good writer, or both. Thanks for your observations: yes, everything I do has justice and (a hopeful, intended) direction. I am going to listen to your work now, because I trust you. Your work playing now, "Emancipation Quartet" already reveals a great sense of proportion and direction. That is what Western Music is generally about, I think.
    -smart IIIrd Mvt. Bernstein might have done that. "Neat Boys" reminded me of a modern Martin Denny. "Fartzarellah" - Spike Jones. You might really like the Mason Williams Phonograph Record (which had the single "Classical Gas").
    I skipped to "Capa(Casa?)blanca [sic] vs. Prok. 1914. I like it. peace
  • Entertaining? Indeed. Witty? Definitely. Bizzare? Absolutely!!
    Some of your songs make Zappa sound like nursery tunes! A fertile imagination for sure!
  • emancipation quartet I - of the consonance... Iam going to guess its not "tonal". Soundtrack-like piece... reminds me of the "tension" music in a movie. Is that made with a hungarian/gypsy scale or something? it just has a "grating" tension sound to me... I like that sound, that feel... but, I want it to get resolved, I guess tonally... it definitely does something my stuiff cant do, though... that high tension feeling...
  • Hi Tom, very interesting, very good stuff you have here. Thanks for sharing! Will you post first movement of Emancipation Quartet? Rudi
  • I like your stuff. Very interesting indeed. Curious to hear your jazz tunes and songs
  • I started playing with it... pent min is "contained" in C nat. min., so i went with it... ironed out the first subject... fooled around and got a 2nd subject going, maybe... you know, its funny... there are all these rules and rules of thumb, and musical calculus surrounding harmony theory... AND at the same time, everyopne says there "are no rules". I know what you mean, though... lol.
