Music - short to write and long to listen to....or the other way round

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dane Aubrun Sep 24, 2020. 3 Replies

I recently had a brief discussion with someone who suggested, that music, that takes longer to be listened to than it took to write it (e.g. various pieces by LaMonte Young, Morton Feldman or John…Continue

Your composing life

Started this discussion. Last reply by H. S. Teoh Aug 26, 2020. 4 Replies

This is a collection of questions, which may be somewhat basic (and could even appear naive - but they are not), to stimulate thoughts on the process of how we are growing (or have grown) into…Continue

Hymn-Etude

Hi,in response to Gavin's delightful short Celebration piece, I was reminded of a real miniature "fanfare", that I put together more than 30 years ago (it is much more simplistic than his!).Actually,…Continue

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion Quaoar for intermediate brass 5tet
"I like it! Perhaps it could be a little more varied (or even challenging) from part B in some of the other parts, which would really increase the intrigue, excitement and playfulness of it. OI wonder if this could even work for strings in some…"

Tillerich replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion Kyrie for a-cappella or string quartett
"Hi, thank you. I struggled a bit to grasp a clear structure in this piece (apart from passages at 02:30 and 08:40 which have a sense of Pachelbel's Canon to them). It could be great as background music, as it is pleasant and flowing, and its…"

Tillerich replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion 2 Scherzi in c-minor for string quartett
"I find the first onequite exciting and really quite Beethoven-ish, but with another angle to it. It has a nice clarity (not simplicity) about it, even compared to the second. Rather strangely, in contrast to the other feedback so far, I found the…"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion COLORS CONTEST - WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!
"Thank you very much, this is really interesting and helpful. I agree that the sound "makes the music" - and if it is somewhat grating it can be immediately off-putting. I shall think of that carefully for the next competition etc. ;-)"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion COLORS CONTEST - WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!
"Thanks, Jos. I wonder if you don't mind a follow-on question and if you would share how long it actually took you to write the piece (plus the extra time to then get the sound right in the detail you described)? To be honest, I have got not…"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion COLORS CONTEST - WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!
"Well deserved Saul! Hey, I believe I got all the winners right this time, which is a kind of an achievement in itself, so to say. Also, I am pleaesed to have managed to not come last, by scoring one point (thanks to whoever gave that to me...!).…"

Tillerich replied to Saul Gefen's discussion The Voyage (Soundtrack)
"Aaaah, cool, now it is coming to life to my ears - I could really not hear the changing melodic lines before. It has become rather atmospheric and quite gripping. A real transformation!"

Tillerich replied to Andy Pattinson's discussion Orchestral symphony in the old style.
"Thank you, the links are working for me. I find this pleasant and gentle; perhaps a bit repetitive (the first part could be longer before it is repeated, as the main theme is quite long in itself). I wish the ending from 03:45 would somewhat…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Tillerich's discussion Link up with life musicians for online
"Difficult with lockdown. As you live in York there isn't much use in suggesting the London Composers Forum (which outside of lockdown is an active group with a membership fee) or joining an ensemble. Have you a town orchestra? ."

Link up with life musicians for online

Hello,any ideas and/or suggestions for websites, forums or such where one can find and meet other amateur musicians (of reasonable standard of skill), who might be happy to just "jam" or play some classic pieces together, or even to try some pieces that we have written (or are writing on at the moment)?See More

Tillerich replied to Saul Gefen's discussion The Voyage (Soundtrack)
"Hi, thank you. I am not really sure about this. Certainly okay as some kind of background music, but not particularly captivating, as it appears quite repetitive, without any development as such. But, perhaps, that was not the intention and purpose…"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion Contest: “Colors” - DEADLINE PASSED
"Ah, when you click on "Forums", then it is the top one of the list (this forum, "Contests", you just wrote in is the second one, just below that)"

Tillerich replied to Gav Brown's discussion Contest: “Colors” - DEADLINE PASSED
"The pieces and voting are in the Music Analysis and Critique Forum. As always there is a fascinating variety of pieces, styles and...colours! Blue is a clear favourite, it seems."

Tillerich replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Impressionist piece about evening.
"Dane, imagine you could team up with someone, who could do most of the technical part of sound production for you - and you mainly concentrate on what you are really good at (i.e. the creative work in your head)...that could increase your…"

Tillerich replied to Szymon Skoneczny's discussion Piano composition - Midnight Waltz

Old fashioned Minimalism

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I am not a professional, but have attempted to write pieces of music since my late teens. Currently I am still looking for ways how to identify the most important learning needs to convert some old and new musical ideas efficiently into works that work. That is why I am here: to increase my confidence, to commit myself more publicly, and to learn from peers.
I am a little nervous but excited and hope, that I can contribute something actively for others and not just remain the eternal student who is mainly dependent on others.
