    I think I like it better without drums.

    Ok, this thread has a lot of music on it. I don’t have the mental stamina to go through it all.

    Ok Phil: what, say, three pieces of music have you written that you’d like me to listen to?

    ^ Depends on your taste I guess. The Italian Girl in Montreal is probably the piece that I spent the most time on. My favourite atonal piece is the Canarie for String Trio. My best counterpoint may be in the Neo-Baroque Serenade.

    Posting a couple of updates.

    This is based on the notes from ratios of the Fibonacci sequence numbers. Basically just used for a certain palette of notes. I repeated certain bar blocks sort of as a musical joke. This is the last of my updates of older pieces.



    I learned a bit of Jazz drumming (at least conceptually). I couldn't find any suitable common drum patterns in 3/4 time with faster than 16th notes for the faster parts, so I made up a certain drum pattern I think is pretty doable.

    Ok, lets see.

    The Fibonacci one: odd, mysterious, but very colorful. I like how the dissonances come to surprisingly clean, consonant resolutions, I wasn’t expecting that. Did you stick very strictly to the Fibonacci calculation? If so, that’s a fascinating insight into how a pattern can literally just resolve on its own.

    The Jazz one: ooohhh, the piano riffs are just delicious. Easily my favorite part about it. In fact, everything about this is totally convincing. The percussion, the sax, but you really outdid yourself with the piano part. The only sad thing is, that the sax sounds fake and mechanical. I mean, all of this is MIDI, but none of it actually sounds like a MIDI performance, except for the sax, which is unfortunate. It sounds awesome compositionally, I just wish you had a better sound sample.

    (Also, the mental image of Nikola’s ears bleeding from this “horrible dissonant music” makes my soul warm and fuzzy. Incidentally, did you know that some critics of Chopin called his writing “ear-shatteringly dissonant?”)

    This one gets A+++ from me.

    Hi Phil how are you ?))
    Regarding your's jazz composition. There is interesting improvisation after 0:27. As I understood you have used some atonal technique. It is enough interesting for me. I'll try to learn it

    Check out this new orchestral ditty. I think the composer I based on is pretty obvious.

    It starts off nice, but some of those dissonant passages in the middle didn't do it for me. They felt a bit forced in there.

    It's actually not dissonnance, but a switch to another key for contrast.

    Somewhere between 28-32 and 1:30-1:37 I hear notes that don't please my ear. It might just be the software.

    Edit: I take that back, the melodic flow is nice. There are some really nice passages in there that I really enjoy.

    Not atonal. Just a lot of different scales starting at different registers and notes. Eric Dolphy was who I had in mind in particular.

    I understand how you felt about the key change, I really disliked them in Classical before, they would throw me off, and just didn't sound good to me. It took a while to train my ear to accept them.

    Hey Capt'n you may be right. There were in fact some bad harmonizations and stuff around that time and others. Here is a cleaned up version.

    I still hear something at 1:32-1:36 that is unpleasant. Everything else sounds good though!
