Hey, I am a current music student taking instrumental composition as a major and production as a minor at Mcnally Smith College of Music. I have long been a fan of classical but my main interest is trance music (which derives from classical). However, considering that the trance scene has entirely died when it comes to making good music and the fact that I've realized that everybody just considers it a joke genre meant to give druggies a reason to OD I have decided that I would like to try my hand at classical music to actually make something people will appreciate and consider real music.
To give you an example of what I listen to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlIA7xhV-VI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKpH8kDggQY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAkGZ-sMCiw . I haven't met anybody in my life save 1 person who doesn't consider all of this simple bad club music (despite how much emotion and complexity I see in it) so that is why I'd like to try my hand at composing classical.
I have been playing piano since I was 7 and I am most fond of the baroque and romantic periods. I however, do not know how I can go about learning to compose as complex as these masters since my school is a contemporary one and anything complex or basically made before 10 years ago is considered pompous. If you guys have any suggestions I would be most grateful.
I already produce trance but the thing is trance is very simple from a rhythmic (it's always 4/4) and linear melodic point of view. I believe it's complexity comes from it's harmony, subtelty, and presentation (which I say it does better than any other genre) but that I believe that isn't enough to help me make a classical piece. Also here is my favorite classical piece, as you can see in the beggining it is very similar to trance in many ways. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGdFHJXciAQ.
Thanks for your time and suggestions.
